Красные спрайты над Ла-Маншем Red Sprites over the Channel
15.06.2017

Mysterious and incredibly brief, red sprites are seen to occur high above large thunderstorms on planet Earth.

12.06.2017

IC 418: туманность Спирограф IC 418: The Spirograph Nebula
11.06.2017

What is creating the strange texture of IC 418? Dubbed the Spirograph Nebula for its resemblance to drawings from a cyclical drawing tool, planetary nebula IC 418 shows patterns that are not well understood. Perhaps they are related to chaotic winds from the variable central star, which changes brightness unpredictably in just a few hours.


Сатурн в Млечном Пути Saturn in the Milky Way
10.06.2017
