Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD)

APOD: 2024 May 24 Б M78 from the Euclid Space Telescope APOD: 2024 May 24 Б M78 from the Euclid Space Telescope
23.05.2024

Star formation can be messy. To help find out just how messy, ESA's new Sun-orbiting Euclid telescope recently captured the most detailed image ever of the bright star forming region M78. Near...


Распутывающаяся галактика NGC 3169 Unraveling NGC 3169
22.05.2024

Spiral galaxy NGC 3169 looks to be unraveling like a ball of cosmic yarn. It lies some 70 million light-years away, south of bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Wound up spiral arms are pulled out into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 (left) and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally.


Зеленое северное сияние над Швецией APOD: 2024 May 22 Б Green Aurora over Sweden
21.05.2024

It was bright and green and stretched across the sky. This striking aurora display was captured in 2016 just outside of цstersund, Sweden. Six photographic fields were merged to create the featured panorama spanning almost 180 degrees. Particularly striking aspects of this aurora include its sweeping arc-like shape and its stark definition.


CG4: глобула и галактика APOD: 2024 May 21 Б CG4: The Globule and the Galaxy
20.05.2024

Can a gas cloud eat a galaxy? It's not even close. The "claw" of this odd looking "creature" in the featured photo is a gas cloud known as a cometary globule. This globule, however, has ruptured. Cometary globules are typically characterized by dusty heads and elongated tails.


Купол северного сияния на небе APOD: 2024 May 20 Б Aurora Dome Sky
19.05.2024

It seemed like night, but part of the sky glowed purple. It was the now famous night of May 10, 2024, when people over much of the world reported beautiful aurora-filled skies. The featured image was captured this night during early morning hours from Arlington, Wisconsin, USA.


Погружение в Юпитер APOD: 2024 May 19 Б Jupiter Diving
18.05.2024

Take this simulated plunge and dive into the upper atmosphere of Jupiter, the Solar System's ruling gas giant. The awesome animation is based on image data from JunoCam, and the microwave radiometer on board the Jupiter-orbiting Juno spacecraft.


Северное сияние на небе North Celestial Aurora
17.05.2024

Graceful star trail arcs reflect planet Earth's daily rotation in this colorful night skyscape. To create the timelapse composite, on May 12 consecutive exposures were recorded with a camera fixed to a tripod on the shores of the Ashokan Reservoir, in the Catskills region of New York, USA.


Полярное сияние над полуостровом Бэнкс Aurora Banks Peninsula
16.05.2024

This well-composed composite panoramic view looks due south from Banks Peninsula near Christchurch on New Zealand's South Island. The base of a tower-like rocky sea stack is awash in the foreground, with stars of the Southern Cross at the top of the frame and planet Earth's south celestial pole near center.


Северное сияние в Джорджии Aurora Georgia
15.05.2024

A familiar sight from Georgia, USA, the Moon sets near the western horizon in this rural night skyscape. Captured on May 10 before local midnight, the image overexposes the Moon's bright waning crescent at left in the frame. A long irrigation rig stretches across farmland about 15 miles north of the city of Bainbridge.


AR 3664 на краю Солнца APOD: 2024 May 15 Б AR 3664 at the Suns Edge
14.05.2024

What did the monster active region that created the recent auroras look like when at the Sun's edge? There, AR 3664 better showed its 3D structure. Pictured, a large multi-pronged solar prominence...
