Волокна остатка сверхновой в Парусах APOD: 2024 April 16 Б Filaments of the Vela Supernova Remnant

The explosion is over, but the consequences continue. About eleven thousand years ago, a star in the constellation of Vela could be seen to explode, creating a strange point of light briefly visible to humans living near the beginning of recorded history.

Галактика Сигара от телескопов "Хаббл" и "Джеймс Вебб" APOD: 2024 April 15 Б The Cigar Galaxy from Hubble and Webb

Something strange happened to this galaxy, but what? Known as the Cigar Galaxy and cataloged as M82, red glowing gas and dust are being cast out from the center. Although this starburst galaxy...

Как заканчивается полное солнечное затмение APOD: 2024 April 14 Б How a Total Solar Eclipse Ended

How does a total solar eclipse end? Yes, the Moon moves out from fully blocking the Sun, but in the first few seconds of transition, interesting things appear. The first is called a diamond ring.

Частное затмение под пальмой Palm Tree Partial Eclipse

Only those along the narrow track of the Moon's shadow on April 8 saw a total solar eclipse. But most of North America still saw a partial eclipse of the Sun. From Clearwater, Florida, USA this single snapshot captured multiple images of that more widely viewed celestial event without observing the Sun directly.

Полное затмение Total Totality

Baily's beads often appear at the boundaries of the total phase of an eclipse of the Sun. Pearls of sunlight still beaming through gaps in the rugged terrain along the lunar limb silhouette, their appearance is recorded in this dramatic timelapse composite.

Затмение на семи снимках Eclipse in Seven

Start at the upper left above and you can follow the progress of April 8's total eclipse of the Sun in seven sharp, separate exposures. The image sequence was recorded with a telescope and camera located within the narrow path of totality as the Moon's shadow swept across Newport, Vermont, USA.

Тень Луны над озером Магог APOD: 2024 April 9 Б Moon Shadow over Lake Magog

Captured in this snapshot, the shadow of the Moon came to Lake Magog, Quebec, North America, planet Earth on April 8. For the lakeside eclipse chasers, the much anticipated total solar eclipse was a spectacle to behold in briefly dark, but clear skies.

Изменяющийся ионный хвост кометы Понса-Брукса APOD: 2024 April 8 Б The Changing Ion Tail of Comet Pons Brooks

How does a comet tail change? It depends on the comet. The ion tail of Comet 12P/PonsБBrooks has been changing markedly, as detailed in the featured image sequenced over nine days from March 6 to 14 (top to bottom).

Полное солнечное затмение над Вайомингом APOD: 2024 April 7 Б A Total Solar Eclipse over Wyoming

Will the sky be clear enough to see the eclipse? This question is already on the minds of many North Americans hoping to see tomorrow's solar eclipse. This question was also on the mind of many people attempting to see the total solar eclipse that crossed North America in August 2017.
