Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD)

Закручивающаяся кома кометы Понса-Брукса APOD: 2024 March 18 Б Comet Pons Brooks Swirling Coma
17.03.2024

A bright comet will be visible during next month's total solar eclipse. This very unusual coincidence occurs because Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks's return to the inner Solar System places it by chance only 25 degrees away from the Sun during Earth's April 8 total solar eclipse.


NGC 7714: вспышка звездообразования после столкновения галактик APOD: 2024 March 17 Б NGC 7714: Starburst after Galaxy Collision
16.03.2024

Is this galaxy jumping through a giant ring of stars? Probably not. Although the precise dynamics behind the featured image is yet unclear, what is clear is that the pictured galaxy, NGC 7714, has been stretched and distorted by a recent collision with a neighboring galaxy.


Телескоп ELT и Млечный Путь ELT and the Milky Way
15.03.2024

The southern winter Milky Way sprawls across this night skyscape. Looking due south, the webcam view was recorded near local midnight on March 11 in dry, dark skies over the central Chilean Atacama desert.


Портрет NGC 1055 Portrait of NGC 1055
14.03.2024

Big, beautiful spiral galaxy NGC 1055 is a dominant member of a small galaxy group a mere 60 million light-years away toward the aquatically intimidating constellation Cetus. Seen edge-on, the island universe spans over 100,000 light-years, a little larger than our own Milky Way galaxy.


Лунное π и тень горы Moon Pi and Mountain Shadow
13.03.2024

What phase of the Moon is 3.14 radians from the Sun? The Full Moon, of course. Even though the Moon might look full for several days, the Moon is truly at its full phase when it is Pi radians (aka 180 degrees) from the Sun in ecliptic longitude.


Туманность Чайка APOD: 2024 March 13 Б The Seagull Nebula
12.03.2024

A broad expanse of glowing gas and dust presents a bird-like visage to astronomers from planet Earth, suggesting its popular moniker: the Seagull Nebula. This portrait of the cosmic bird covers a 1.6-degree...


Выхлоп ракеты, похожий на спиральную галактику APOD: 2024 March 12 Б A Galaxy Shaped Rocket Exhaust Spiral
11.03.2024

What's that over the horizon? What may look like a strangely nearby galaxy is actually a normal rocket's exhaust plume -- but unusually backlit. Although the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was launched from...


Полная планктонная Луна APOD: 2024 March 11 Б A Full Plankton Moon
10.03.2024

What glows in the night? This night featured a combination of usual and unusual glows. Perhaps the most usual glow was from the Moon, a potentially familiar object. The full Moon's nearly vertical descent results from the observer being near Earth's equator.


Полное затмение на краю света APOD: 2024 March 10 Б A Total Eclipse at the End of the World
9.03.2024

Would you go to the end of the world to see a total eclipse of the Sun? If you did, would you be surprised to find someone else there already? In 2003, the Sun, the Moon, Antarctica, and two photographers all lined up in Antarctica during an unusual total solar eclipse.


Комета 12P/Понса-Брукса северной весной Comet 12P/Pons Brooks in Northern Spring
8.03.2024

As spring approaches for northern skygazers Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks is growing brighter. Currently visible with small telescopes and binoculars the Halley-type comet could reach naked eye visibility in the coming weeks. Seen despite a foggy...
