Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD)

Триплет Льва The Leo Trio
21.03.2024

This popular group leaps into the early evening sky around the March equinox and the northern hemisphere spring. Famous as the Leo Triplet, the three magnificent galaxies found in the prominent constellation Leo gather here in one astronomical field of view.


"Глаза" в цепочке галактик Маркаряна APOD: 2024 March 20 Б The Eyes in Markarians Galaxy Chain
20.03.2024

Across the heart of the Virgo Galaxy Cluster lies a string of galaxies known as Markarian's Chain. Prominent in Markarian's Chain are these two interacting galaxies, NGC 4438 (left) and NGC 4435 - also known as The Eyes.


Живописный закат в день равноденствия APOD: 2024 March 19 Б A Picturesque Equinox Sunset
19.03.2024

What's that at the end of the road? The Sun. Many towns have roads that run east-west, and on two days each year, the Sun rises and sets right down the middle. Today, in some parts of the world (tomorrow in others), is one of those days: an equinox.


Закручивающаяся кома кометы Понса-Брукса APOD: 2024 March 18 Б Comet Pons Brooks Swirling Coma
18.03.2024

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
17.03.2024

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
16.03.2024

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
15.03.2024

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
14.03.2024

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
13.03.2024

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
12.03.2024

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...
