Тень Луны над озером Магог APOD: 2024 April 9 Б Moon Shadow over Lake Magog

Captured in this snapshot, the shadow of the Moon came to Lake Magog, Quebec, North America, planet Earth on April 8. For the lakeside eclipse chasers, the much anticipated total solar eclipse was a spectacle to behold in briefly dark, but clear skies.

Изменяющийся ионный хвост кометы Понса-Брукса APOD: 2024 April 8 Б The Changing Ion Tail of Comet Pons Brooks

How does a comet tail change? It depends on the comet. The ion tail of Comet 12P/PonsБBrooks has been changing markedly, as detailed in the featured image sequenced over nine days from March 6 to 14 (top to bottom).

Полное солнечное затмение над Вайомингом APOD: 2024 April 7 Б A Total Solar Eclipse over Wyoming

Will the sky be clear enough to see the eclipse? This question is already on the minds of many North Americans hoping to see tomorrow's solar eclipse. This question was also on the mind of many people attempting to see the total solar eclipse that crossed North America in August 2017.

Раскручивая M51 Unwinding M51

The arms of a grand design spiral galaxy 60,000 light-years across are unwound in this digital transformation of the magnificent 2005 Hubble Space Telescope portrait of M51. In fact...

Развернутая солнечная корона The Solar Corona Unwrapped

Changes in the alluring solar corona are detailed in this creative composite image mapping the dynamic outer atmosphere of the Sun during two separate total solar eclipses. Unwrapped from the complete circle...

Комета Понса-Брукса ночью Comet Pons-Brooks at Night

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

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

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

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

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...
