Структура хвоста кометы 12P/Понса-Брукса Structure in the Tail of Comet 12P/Pons Brooks
15.02.2024

Heading for its next perihelion passage on April 21, Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks is growing brighter. The greenish coma of this periodic Halley-type comet has become relatively easy to observe in small telescopes. But the bluish...


NGC 253: богатая пылью островная вселенная NGC 253: Dusty Island Universe
14.02.2024

Shiny NGC 253 is one of the brightest spiral galaxies visible, and also one of the dustiest. Some call it the Silver Coin Galaxy for its appearance in small telescopes, or just the Sculptor Galaxy for its location within the boundaries of the southern constellation Sculptor.


Глубокое поле Розетки APOD: 2024 February 14 Б Rosette Deep Field
13.02.2024

Can you find the Rosette Nebula? The large, red, and flowery-looking nebula on the upper left may seem the obvious choice, but that is actually just diffuse hydrogen emission surrounding the Cone and Fox Fur Nebulas.


Январская Волчья Луна APOD: 2024 February 13 Б A January Wolf Moon
12.02.2024

Did you see the full moon last month? During every month, on average, a full moon occurs in the skies over planet Earth. This is because the Moon takes a month to complete another...


HFG1 и Эйбелл 6: планетарные туманности APOD: 2024 February 12 Б HFG1 & Abell 6: Planetary Nebulae
11.02.2024

Planetary nebulae like Heckathorn-Fesen-Gull 1 (HFG1) and Abell 6 in the constellation Cassiopeia are remnants from the last phase of a medium sized star like our Sun. In spite of their shapes, planetary nebulae have nothing in common with actual planets.


Тень следа ракеты направлена к Луне APOD: 2024 February 11 Б Rocket Plume Shadow Points to the Moon
10.02.2024

Why would the shadow of a rocket's launch plume point toward the Moon? In early 2001 during a launch of the space shuttle Atlantis, the Sun, Earth, Moon, and rocket were all properly aligned for this photogenic coincidence.


Тень поврежденной лопасти винта "Индженьюити" The Shadow of Ingenuity s Damaged Rotor Blade
9.02.2024

On January 18, 2024, during its 72nd flight in the thin Martian atmosphere, autonomous Mars Helicopter Ingenuity rose to an altitude of 12 meters (40 feet) and hovered for 4.5 seconds above the Red Planet. Ingenuity's 72nd landing was a rough one though.


Когда розы не красные When Roses Aren t Red
8.02.2024

Not all roses are red of course, but they can still be very pretty. Likewise, the beautiful Rosette Nebula and other star forming regions are often shown in astronomical images with a predominately red hue, in part because the dominant emission in the nebula is from hydrogen atoms.


Шаровое звездное скопление 47 Тукана Globular Star Cluster 47 Tuc
7.02.2024

Globular star cluster 47 Tucanae is a jewel of the southern sky. Also known as NGC 104, it roams the halo of our Milky Way Galaxy along with some 200 other globular star clusters. The second brightest globular cluster (after Omega Centauri) as seen from planet Earth, 47 Tuc lies about 13,000 light-years away.


Галактики Антенны, принявшие форму сердца APOD: 2024 February 7 Б The Heart Shaped Antennae Galaxies
6.02.2024

Are these two galaxies really attracted to each other? Yes, gravitationally, and the result appears as an enormous iconic heart -- at least for now. Pictured is the pair of galaxies cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039,known as the Antennae Galaxies.
