Звезды  M15 от "Гайя" The Gaia Stars of M15
27.03.2019

Messier 15 is a 13 billion year old relic of the early formative years of our galaxy, one of about 170 globular star clusters that still roam the halo of the Milky Way. About 200 light-years in diameter, it lies about 35,000 light years away toward the constellation Pegasus.


NGC 1333: звездные ясли в Персее NGC 1333: Stellar Nursery in Perseus
26.03.2019

NGC 1333 is seen in visible light as a reflection nebula, dominated by bluish hues characteristic of starlight reflected by interstellar dust. A mere 1,000 light-years distant toward the heroic constellation Perseus, it lies at the edge of a large, star-forming molecular cloud.


AE Возничего и туманность Пылающей звезды AE Aurigae and the Flaming Star Nebula
25.03.2019

Is star AE Aurigae on fire? No. Even though AE Aurigae is named the flaming star, the surrounding nebula IC 405 is named the Flaming Star Nebula, and the region shape gives the appearance of fire, there is no fire.


Арп 194: сливающаяся группа галактик Arp 194: Merging Galaxy Group
24.03.2019

Why are stars forming in the bridge between these colliding galaxies? Usually when galaxies crash, star formation is confined to galaxy disks or tidal tails. In Arp 194, though, there are bright knots of young stars right in a connecting bridge.


Звездное скопление Терзан 5 крупным планом Zooming in on Star Cluster Terzan 5
23.03.2019

Globular clusters once ruled the Milky Way. Back in the old days, back when our Galaxy first formed, perhaps thousands of globular clusters roamed our Galaxy. Today, there are less than 200 left. Over the eons, many globular clusters were destroyed by repeated fateful encounters with each other or the Galactic center.


Четыре башни и Луна в равноденствие Four Towers and the Equinox Moon
22.03.2019

The first Full Moon of northern spring rises behind four distant towers in this telescopic view. In an image captured from some 40 kilometers west of the city of Madrid, this moonrise also represents a near coincidence of the full lunar phase with lunar perigee and the March equinox.


Симфония в северных зимних небесах A Symphony in Northern Winter Skies
21.03.2019

Despite the cold, a chance to view the shimmering northern lights coaxed this skygazer onto the frozen surface of Lake Superior on the west coast of the Keweenaw Peninusla and offered this nocturnal crescendo as a reward.


Следы звезд и восход Солнца в равноденствие Star Trails and the Equinox Sunrise
20.03.2019

Stars trail and the Sun rises in this night and day composite panorama made on March 19. The view looks toward the eastern horizon from La Nava de Santiago, Spain. To create...


Равноденствие на планете Земля Equinox on Planet Earth
19.03.2019

Welcome to an equinox on planet Earth. Today is the first day of spring in our fair planet's northern hemisphere, fall in the southern hemisphere, with day and night nearly equal around the globe.


Эйбелл 370: скопление галактик – гравитационная линза Abell 370: Galaxy Cluster Gravitational Lens
18.03.2019

What are those strange arcs? While imaging the cluster of galaxies Abell 370, astronomers noticed an unusual arc. The arc wasn't understood right away -- not until better images showed that...
