Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD)

Комета Понса-Брукса ночью Comet Pons-Brooks at Night
3.04.2024

In dark evening skies over June Lake, northern hemisphere, planet Earth, Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks stood just above the western horizon on March 30. Its twisted turbulent ion tail and diffuse greenish coma are captured in this two degree wide telescopic field of view along with bright yellowish star Hamal also known as Alpha Arietis.


Необычная туманность Pa 30 APOD: 2024 April 3 Б Unusual Nebula Pa 30
2.04.2024

What created this unusual celestial firework? The nebula, dubbed Pa 30, appears in the same sky direction now as a bright "guest star" did in the year 1181. Although Pa 30's filaments look...


Подробный вид солнечной короны во время затмения APOD: 2024 April 2 Б Detailed View of a Solar Eclipse Corona
1.04.2024

Only in the fleeting darkness of a total solar eclipse is the light of the solar corona easily visible. Normally overwhelmed by the bright solar disk, the expansive corona, the sun's outer atmosphere, is an alluring sight.


Закручивающееся магнитное поле вокруг черной дыры в центре нашей Галактики APOD: 2024 April 1 Б Swirling Magnetic Field around Our Galaxys Central Black Hole
31.03.2024

What's happening to the big black hole in the center of our galaxy? It is sucking in matter from a swirling disk -- a disk that is magnetized, it has now been confirmed. Specifically, the black hole's accretion disk has recently been seen to emit polarized light, radiation frequently associated with a magnetized source.


Полное солнечное затмение на краю мира APOD: 2024 March 31 Б Total Solar Eclipse Below the Bottom of the World
30.03.2024

In late 2021 there was a total solar eclipse visible only at the end of the Earth. To capture the unusual phenomenon, airplanes took flight below the clouded seascape of Southern Ocean. The featured...


Средневековая астрономия из аббатства Мельк Medieval Astronomy from Melk Abbey
29.03.2024

Discovered by accident, this manuscript page provides graphical insight to astronomy in medieval times, before the Renaissance and the influence of Nicolaus Copernicus, Tycho de Brahe, Johannes Kepler, and Galileo. The intriguing page is from lecture notes on astronomy compiled by the monk Magister Wolfgang de Styria before the year 1490.


Европа от "Галилео" Galileo s Europa
28.03.2024

Looping through the Jovian system in the late 1990s, the Galileo spacecraft recorded stunning views of Europa and uncovered evidence that the moon's icy surface likely hides a deep, global ocean. Galileo...


Миллионы звезд в ω Центавра Millions of Stars in Omega Centauri
27.03.2024

Globular star cluster Omega Centauri, also known as NGC 5139, is 15,000 light-years away. The cluster is packed with about 10 million stars much older than the Sun within a volume about 150 light-years in diameter.


Скопление галактик в Волосах Вероники APOD: 2024 March 27 Б The Coma Cluster of Galaxies
26.03.2024

Almost every object in the featured photograph is a galaxy. The Coma Cluster of Galaxies pictured here is one of the densest clusters known - it contains thousands of galaxies. Each of these galaxies houses billions of stars - just as our own Milky Way Galaxy does.


Ионный хвост кометы Понса-Брукса APOD: 2024 March 26 Б Comet Pons Brooks Ion Tail
25.03.2024

Comet Pons-Brooks has quite a tail to tell. First discovered in 1385, this erupting dirty snowball loops back into our inner Solar System every 71 years and, this time, is starting to put on a show for deep camera exposures.
