Туманность Голубая Конская Голова в инфракрасном свете The Blue Horsehead Nebula in Infrared
23.04.2018

The Blue Horsehead Nebula looks quite different in infrared light. In visible light, the reflecting dust of the nebula appears blue and shaped like a horse's head. In infrared light, however, a complex labyrinth of filaments, caverns, and cocoons of glowing dust and gas emerges, making it hard to even identify the equine icon.

18.04.2018

What planet is this? It is the only planet currently known to have trees. The trees in Deadvlei, though, have been dead for over 500 years.
