Layered Hills in Arabia Terra on Mars
.
"And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."
.
Why are some hills on Mars so layered? The answer is still under investigation. Clearly, dark windblown sand surrounds outcropping of light sedimentary rock across the floor of crater Arabia Terra. The light rock clearly appears structured into many layers, the lowest of which is likely very old. Although the dark sand forms dunes, rippled dunes of lighter colored sand are easier to see surrounding the stepped mesas.  Blown sand possibly itself eroded once-larger mesas into the layered hills. Most of the layered shelves are wide enough to drive a truckaround. The above image, showing an area about 3 kilometers across, was taken in 2003 October by the now defunct Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft orbiting Mars.

Happy New Moon!

Today is for giving to yourself. Create the peace and space to talk with your positive (not the negative one) secret self inside. Maybe even give her a name, finally. But more importantly be honest with yourself and ask what it is you want from and for life. Then hold on tight to that intention and watch it unfurl out into reality from your heart. -

PULSARS
Pulsars are rotating neutron stars which have regular pulses of radiation.
They have very strong magnetic fields which carry lots of particles throughout the two magnetic poles. The acceleration of these particles produces strong light emissions. These beams of light and particles are pushed around as the star rotates, this is caused by the often unaligned magnetic field with the spin axis. As the beam passes our line of sight, we are able to see the pulse.
Fact: neutron stars are formed when a huge star runs out of nuclear fuel and crashes (pretty much how supernovas are formed).
"In history class we had to choose three women that inspired us and talk about them. I remember one of the women I chose was Jocelyn Bell Burnell, the person who first observed a pulsar with Antony Hewish in 1967. She is such a great inspiration!"

I took this last night, and was stoked how the Milkyway came out perfectly straight up. This was processed through Lightroom and then color corrected in photoshop to get the Milkyway poppin'! ------------------------------------------------

Here's the crescent Moon, reminding you the New Moon takes place at 03:31 BST on Saturday June 24th (so, on Friday evening in the States). While each New Moon is about a fresh start, because this one follows closely after the summer solstice and is in the Moon's own sign, Cancer, it's especially powerful. Meditate on it or,  better yet, write out you own New Moon list - info how to next. And also be on the lookout for special New Moon info just for Cancerians. Note, this luminous image of the crescent Moon is by the brilliant artist Olivia Fraser #oliviafraserart  #newmoon #newbeginnings #freshstart #june24 #newmoonincancer #astrology #astronomy #cycles #lunarcycle #newmoonritual #newbeginnings

Mark your calendars! For the first time in 99 years, a total solar eclipse will occur across the entire continental United States, and we're preparing to share this experience of a lifetime on Aug. 21. Viewers around the world will be provided a wealth of images captured before, during, and after the eclipse by 11 spacecraft, at least three NASA aircraft, more than 50 high-altitude balloons, and the astronauts aboard the International Space Station – each offering a unique vantage point for the celestial event. More information is at http://eclipse2017.nasa.gov

Seen here is an image of the moon crossing in front of the sun was captured on Jan. 30, 2014, by our Solar Dynamics Observatory observing an eclipse from its vantage point in space.

Photo et texte de @max_oudoux Voici la mosaïque de la région du Sagittaire, du Serpentaire et du Scorpion. Autrement dit, le centre de notre galaxie, et la région de Rho Ophiuchi. Cette zone est immense dans le ciel, on ne dirait pas comme ça, mais elle est 6/7 fois plus grande que votre main bras tendu.
Saturne “ère au beau milieu” des structures poussiéreuses sombres au centre de l’image (c’est l’étoile toute blanche).
Cette mosaïque est la combinaison de 16 images de 3 minutes de pose chacunes, placées les unes aux autres sur le logiciel dédié Autopano Giga. L’image pleine taille fait 200 millions de pixels de définition, pour un poids de plusieurs gigas... il y a beaucoup de détail à l’intérieur.

Image réalisée avec le Samyang 135mm f/2 ED AS UMC, le filtre de réduction de la pollution lumineuse NiSi Natural Night et mon Nikon D750 défiltré Astrodon.

Johann Heinrich Lambert
Swiss Mathematician
He was a polymath who made important contributions to the subjects of mathematics, physics (particularly optics), philosophy, astronomy and map projections.
Lambert was the first to introduce hyperbolic functions into trigonometry. Also, he made conjectures regarding non-Euclidean space. Lambert is credited with the first proof that π is irrational. He used a generalized continued fraction for the function tan x. Euler believed but could not prove that π was irrational, and it is speculated that Aryabhata also believed this, in 500 CE.
Also, Lambert was the first mathematician to address the general properties of map projections.

Beautiful! Via @europeanspaceagency || "Meet ESO 486-21 - a spiral galaxy — with a somewhat irregular and ill-defined structure — located some 30 million light-years from Earth. It was observed by Hubble while performing a survey of 50 nearby star-forming galaxies (LEGUS). The LEGUS sample was selected to cover a diverse range of galactic morphologies, star formation rates, galaxy masses, and more. Astronomers use such data to understand how stars form and evolve within clusters, and how these processes affect both their home galaxy and the wider Universe. ESO 486-21 is an ideal candidate for inclusion in such a survey as it is known to be in the process of forming new stars, which are created when large clouds of gas and dust (seen here in pink) within the galaxy crumple inwards upon themselves.

A seguito di uno studio da parte degli astronomi si é giunta alla conclusione che la Via Lattea e Andromeda sono più simili di quanto si fosse pensato fino a un po' di tempo fa. A seguito dell'analisi di circa più di 2.700 ammassi stellari si é giunta alla conclusione che entrambe le galassie presento la stessa percentuale di stelle presenti al loro interno. In conclusione... Sono "sorelle" 😂 #astronomia #astronomy #universo #universe #spazio #space #galassia #galaxy #star #stelle #wow #andromeda #vialattea #sorelle

The venue for this night's concert in Hamburg: a 100-year-old observatory, complete with working telescope. A fabulous team of sisters now runs this café/venue in the entry hall. They occasionally get flak from the old astronomers who still work in the palatial offices on the property, who are still used to being in complete darkness at night, even though they no longer need it - nowadays they work in office cubicles with satellite-based telescopes & desktop computers! But old habits die hard: one elderly astronomer apparently called the café owners "light-terrorists"! #musictour #livemusic #gig #europeantour #hamburg #telescope #stargazer #antiquescience #victorian #concerttour #indiemusic #germany #astronomy #stars #astronomers #touringmusic #starcatalog #observatory #steampunk #weirdscience #touringmusician #antique #singersongwriter #concert #music

I changed my mind.😭 I was going to buy gaming PC. But now I should study and get a life. It's painful but without study there is no life. I already lost 4 year . Failed in exam because i played games didn't do study. It's painful.😭 Now I understood. Only study . After finish my study i can play games in future. Good bye gaming world😭😭. #gamer #games #gaming #gamestop #gamergirl #pc #pcmasterrace #cry #sad #fans #fan #school #reading #girls #boys #people #pcgaming  #book #science #painful #pain #study #friends #family #members #astronomy #computer #collage #life #english

This is my image the Eagle nebula, Messier 16 or M16, located 7000 light years away. This emission nebula is famous for the "Pillars of Creation" imaged by the Hubble space telescope (final image) showing gas pillars around 4 light years tall, inside which new stars are forming. You can see the pillars in the centre of my image, but as you can see it looks totally different, quality and colour wise to the Hubble image. This is down to the sensor and wave length filters used on that scope, so it picks up wave lengths of light that my camera can't. 
My image was taken using the T13 scope at itelescope in Australia, controlled remotely.

The earth actually takes 365.24219 days to orbit the sun, which is called a solar year.However, to compensate for the missing 0.242 days the western calendar adds an extra day in February every fourth (leap) year, but misses out three leap years every four centuries.

Just played a gig at the 100-year -old Hamburg Sternwarte (conservatory) - literally, a concert underneath one of their 14-ton telescopes. These telescopes are mostly redundant now that astronomers spend most of their time on super-computers, analyzing data coming in from satellites like Hubble. So the building is full of antique, gorgeous, irrelevant scientific equipment, none of which they can get rid of or sell because it belongs to the university & thus “the people of Hamburg”. So the entire property is a very dark, very quiet museum of massive telescopes & stately late-19th-century buildings surrounded by parkland. This here is one of the massive, gorgeous cabinets that used to contain the observatory’s star catalogs. #musictour #livemusic #gig #europeantour #hamburg #telescope #germany #astronomy #stars #astronomers #touringmusic #starcatalog #observatory #steampunk #weirdscience #touringmusician #singersongwriter #concert #concertvenue
