The walkways, piers and gazebos that lead down and onto the beach we’re all pretty amazing. This was just after sunset and the moon wasn’t set to rise until 9pm. 🏝________________________________________________ “What is coming is better than what’s gone.” _________________________________________________.

This Thanksgiving I am so grateful and fortunate that a rough road has literally lead me to the stars .
.
I am by no means 💯% where I want to be, but I get closer everyday and the love of my family keeps me going and gives me focus .
.
What are YOU thankful for today and everyday? .

'Earth wind' bathes moon with oxygen!
.

A new study from Japanese researchers reveals that for the past 2.4 billion years, the moon has been bathed in a stream of oxygen particles stripped from the Earth’s atmosphere. By combining measurements taken with the lunar orbiter Kaguya and studies of lunar rocks, researchers prove that Earth contributes it’s own unique whiff of elements to the moon’s surface. The findings adds substantial proof to the theory that solar winds can carry particles of terrestrial origins all the way to the lunar surface.

That reddish dot -- it wasn't there before. It's the dot to the upper left of galaxy NGC 4993's center, do you see it? When scanning the large field of possible locations of an optical counterpart to the unprecedented gravitational wave event GW170817 in August, the appearance of this fading dot quickly became of historic importance. It pinpointed GW170817's exact location, thereby enabling humanity's major telescopes to examine the first ever electromagnetic wave counterpart to a gravitational wave event, an event giving strong evidence of being a short gamma-ray burst kilonova, the element-forming explosion that occurs after two neutron stars merge. The featured image of lenticular galaxy NGC 4993 by Hubble shows the fading dot several days after it was discovered. Analyses, continuing, include the physics of the explosion, what heavy elements formed, the similarity of the speeds of gravitational radiation and light, and calibrating a new method for determining the distance scale of our universe.

My favourite Star cluster is the Pleiades or AKA ( seven sisters and Messier 45 ) through my telescope 😄. The Pleiades are an open cluster containing hot B type Stars located in taurus. It is among the nearest star cluster from earth at 444.2 light years away and the cluster is the most obvious to the naked eye ✨ this was taken from 16th of November 2017 :)

First (Astro)Light for my #sony #a6000 😊 The Milky Way above Northern Germany last night. It was pretty windy and weather is just bad here. I was pretty surprised to see clear sky last night and decided to drive out of the city of #kiel quickly and just try to get a few shots of the stars. Just me, a tripod and the camera on the dark, wet and muddy field 😉
Btw. The light pollution is from the town of #eckernförde and reaches high due to the slight haze close to the #balticsea...

29 Oct, 2017. Galaxy quest
🚙
Two weeks ago I once again climbed into my trusty Suzuki Swift and drove out to try to get some new Milky Way photos. Getting onto the freeway that joins our country’s two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, I definitely wasn’t going to drive the whole 880km (547mi) 9 hour trip, just a two-hour segment of it to get me away from the light pollution of Sydney. Although there was some cloud off to the southwest the western skies were mostly clear enough to get some Milky Way core shots before the “Milky Way season” came to an end for the year. 🚂
Trying to find an interesting and worthwhile foreground is as much a factor in getting a good nightscape shot as is getting a clear, dark sky with the Milky Way in just the right position. I’ve used railway crossings several times in the past few years but, I hope, not too much that you’re bored with seeing them in my photos. The crossing in this image is on the main southern line that, like the freeway that I mentioned, links Sydney and Melbourne for passenger and freight services.
🌌
The Milky Way’s core is almost parallel to the horizon and the supergiant red star Antares is very low in the sky on the left. Up to the right of Antares is Saturn, looking very white and given an extra touch of size and colour by a fine mist that was in the air. The beautiful misty wisps of interstellar dust and gas streak upwards and downwards from the central band of the Milky Way.
📷
This single shot was taken with Canon EOS 6D MkII, Samyang 14mm XP lens @ f/2.8, 25 sec exposure @ ISO 6400.

Now most of us do our best to not think about death. But there’s always part of our minds that knows this can’t go on forever. Part of us always knows that we’re just a doctor’s visit away, or a phone call away, from being starkly reminded of the fact of our own mortality, or of those closest to us. Now, I’m sure many of you have experienced this in some form; you must know how uncanny it is to be suddenly thrown out of the normal course of your life and be given the full time job of not dying, or of caring for someone who is…

But the one thing people tend to realize at moments like this is that they wasted a lot of time, when life was normal. And it’s not just what they did with their time — it’s not just that they spent too much time working or compulsively checking email. It’s that they cared about the wrong things. They regret what they cared about. Their attention was bound up in petty concerns — year after year — when life was normal. This is a paradox of course, because we all know this epiphany is coming. Don’t you know this is coming? Don’t you know that there’s going to be a day when you’ll be sick, or someone close to you will die, and you will look back on the kinds of things that captured your attention, and you’ll think ‘What was I doing?’. You know this, and yet if you’re like most people, you’ll spend most of your time in life tacitly presuming you’ll live forever.

Driven by the explosion of a massive star, supernova remnant Puppis A is blasting into the surrounding interstellar medium about 7,000 light-years away. At that distance, this colorful telescopic field based on broadband and narrowband optical image data is about 60 light-years across. As the supernova remnant (upper right) expands into its clumpy, non-uniform surroundings, shocked filaments of oxygen atoms glow in green-blue hues. Hydrogen and nitrogen are in red. Light from the initial supernova itself, triggered by the collapse of the massive star's core, would have reached Earth about 3,700 years ago. The Puppis A remnant is actually seen through outlying emission from the closer but more ancient Vela supernova remnant, near the crowded plane of our Milky Way galaxy. Still glowing across the electromagnetic spectrum Puppis A remains one of the brightest sources in the X-ray sky. Credit NASA

A 212 Hour Exposure of Orion

The constellation of Orion is much more than three stars in a row. It is a direction in space that is rich with impressive nebulas. To better appreciate this well-known swath of sky, an extremely long exposure was taken over many clear nights in 2013 and 2014. After 212 hours of camera time and an additional year of processing, the featured 1400-exposure collage spanning over 40 times the angular diameter of the Moon emerged. Of the many interesting details that have become visible, one that particularly draws the eye is Barnard's Loop, the bright red circular filament arcing down from the middle. The Rosette Nebula is not the giant red nebula near the top of the image -- that is a larger but lesser known nebula known as Lambda Orionis. The Rosette Nebula is visible, though: it is the red and white nebula on the upper left. The bright orange star just above the frame center is Betelgeuse, while the bright blue star on the lower right is Rigel. Other famous nebulas visible include the Witch Head Nebula, the Flame Nebula, the Fox Fur Nebula, and, if you know just where to look, the comparatively small Horsehead Nebula. About those famous three stars that cross the belt of Orion the Hunter -- in this busy frame they can be hard to locate, but a discerning eye will find them just below and to the right of the image center.

About those famous three stars that cross the belt of Orion the Hunter -- in this busy frame they can be hard to locate, but a discerning eye will find them just below and to the right of the image center.

Nobody likes to hear "I told you so," but sometimes in science it's advantageous —

When the total solar eclipse swept across the United States on Aug. 21, 2017, NASA satellites captured a diverse set of images from space. But days before the eclipse, some NASA satellites also enabled scientists to predict what the corona — the Sun’s outer atmosphere — would look like during the eclipse, from the ground.
Image 1
Predictive Science, Inc. developed a numerical model that simulated what the corona would look like during the Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse. Their model uses observations of magnetic fields on the Sun’s surface and requires a wealth of supercomputing resources to predict how the magnetic field shapes the corona over time.
Image 2
This is a photograph taken on the ground during the Aug. 21, 2017  total solar eclipse. “Based on a very preliminary comparison, it looks like the model did very well in capturing features of the large-scale corona,” Predictive Science president and scientist Jon Linker said.
Image 3
Due to STEREO-A’s position behind the Sun and the particular rotation rates of the Sun and Earth, STEREO-A’s view of the corona on Aug. 12, 2017, was virtually the same those within the path of totality would see nine days later on Aug. 21. That is, STEREO-A’s vantage point is roughly nine days in advance of Earth’s.

Image 4
An image from the joint ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, which was positioned to share Earth’s view of the corona on Aug. 21 shows great similarity to STEREO-A’s view.

Young stars themselves are clearing out their nursery in NGC 7822. Within the nebula, bright edges and complex dust sculptures dominate this detailed skyscape taken in infrared light by NASA's Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) satellite. NGC 7822 lies at the edge of a giant molecular cloud toward the northern constellation Cepheus, a glowing star forming region that lies about 3,000 light-years away. The atomic emission of light by the nebula's gas is powered by energetic radiation from the hot stars, whose powerful winds and light also sculpt and erode the denser pillar shapes. Stars could still be forming inside the pillars by gravitational collapse, but as the pillars are eroded away, any forming stars will ultimately be cut off from their reservoir of star stuff. This field spans around 40 light-years at the estimated distance of NGC 7822.

The 2017 Milky Way season is over and boy have I been blessed (lucky) enough to have done some traveling and photograph some beautiful places. I have been going through my pictures and came across this one and a rush of nostalgia overcomes me. The Sneffels mountain range and Mountain were seen through my windshield and rear view mirror for so many years of my youth and only for short vacations as an adult. Mt. Sneffels was the first 14teener I climbed and a nightscape photo of this mountain is the reason I'm hooked / addicted on astrophotography. 
This photo was taken at the end of a long night traveling the back roads searching for the light in the darkness and great locations for a 2018 calendar. 
I hope you enjoy this picture as much as I do. It's an amazing mountain!! @sonyalpha a7rii

Instead of a barrage of Milky Way shots, I figured I would spread them out with other shots. Don't worry and be patient, there are some AWESOME shots ready to be posted, so just stay tuned .

This was a quick snap on the walk to Balanced Rock. Little did I know, Balanced rock faces East, so DON'T go there to capture the sunset through the window. But looking backwards at the canyon, you can see the golden sun cascade over the landscape. Such a glorious sight .

NGC 2623, ou Arp 243, est une paire de galaxies en interaction située à environ 250 millions d'années-lumière de la Terre dans la constellation du Cancer. Cet impressionnant spectacle, à la fois magnifique et terrifiant, aurait débuté il y a environ 100 millions d'années entre deux galaxies spirales et s'étend sur environ 50 000 années-lumières.

Wraithlike NGC 6369 is a faint apparition in night skies popularly known as the Little Ghost Nebula. It was discovered by 18th century astronomer Sir William Herschel as he used a telescope to explore the medicinal constellation Ophiucus. Herschel historically classified the round and planet-shaped nebula as a Planetary Nebula. But planetary nebulae in general are not at all related to planets. Instead they are gaseous shrouds created at the end of a sun-like star's life, the dying star's outer layers expanding into space while its core shrinks to become a white dwarf. The transformed white dwarf star, seen near the center, radiates strongly at ultraviolet wavelengths and powers the expanding nebula's glow. Surprisingly complex details and structures of NGC 6369 are revealed in this tantalizing image composed from Hubble Space Telescope data. The nebula's main round structure is about a light-year across and the glow from ionized oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen atoms are colored blue, green, and red respectively. Over 2,000 light-years away, the Little Ghost Nebula offers a glimpse of the fate of our Sun, which could produce its own planetary nebula about 5 billion years from now. Credit NASA

NGC 2070 ou 30 Doradus, surnommée la nébuleuse de la Tarentule, est une région HII, sorte de nébuleuse en émission contenant essentiellement de l'hydrogène ionisé et propice à la naissance de nouvelles étoiles, située à environ 160 000 années-lumière de la Terre dans la constellation de la Dorade. Cette gigantesque nébuleuse contiendrait l'étoile R136a1, la plus massive jamais observée avec une masse inimaginable d'environ 265 masses solaires ! Elle a été découverte le 5 décembre 1751 par l'astronome français Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille.

"Artport Exhibit"
One of my favorite luck shots of 2017 was 1 of 28 chosen out of 160 entries to be displayed at the Tallahassee Airport and is finally up and on display. It is pretty exciting to have a large piece of photography on display for so many to see. This exhibit is being put on by COCA (Council on Culture & Arts) and has some very beautiful work on display and for sale. If you're traveling through Tallahassee, I recommend you stop by and look at some of this work and if your driving by I recommend a quick stop. (you have 30 minutes of free parking). For the three young ladies in the picture, I'm so Thankful for their support and love in my desire and even addiction in photography and searching for the light in the darkness. Love you girls!! Thank you fans and followers for your much support as well.

Cassini-Hugyens Spacecraft for Saturn, has been orbiting the ringed world for about 19 years now. At a distance of about 7 times the distance between Earth and the Sun or 7 AUs/1.4 billion kms/64-85 light minutes away
Today Cassini-Hugyens Spacecraft orbiting Saturn closer than ever: inside its ring system.
'Giovanni Domenico Cassini was an Italian mathematician and astronomer born in 1625.
He was the first person to notice the division of the rings of Saturn in 1675 and now, over 300 years later, a space probe bearing his name is orbiting the planet .
The Cassini spacecraft was launched by the American space agency on October 15, 1997.
It reached Saturn's orbit in July, 2004 and has been studying the planet and its moons ever since.
Cassini's mission is drawing to an end, as NASA prepares to crash it into the surface of Saturn itself. But the craft has, this week, sent back a beautiful new picture of the Earth, glimpsed through Saturn's rings. (Above)

23 Oct, 2017. Weather station waiting
🌌☁️
There was no earth-bound cloud for the weather radar to report on tonight, fortunately. The weather station soldiered on, waiting for some clouds to come. There were the clouds of galactic dust & gas for me to photograph, though, through the thick & moist air near the western horizon. This could well be my last night shooting the Milky Way’s core for 2017. 📷

Two stars will merge together.
.
In 2022 there will be a spectacular sky show! Two stars will merge into one, pushing out excess gas into an explosion known as red nova. It will be as bright as polaris in the sky and just behind sirius and vega brightness. The collision in the constellation of Cygnus will be visible for up to six months.

NGC 2261: Variable Nebula
.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
.
What causes Hubble's Variable Nebula to vary? The unusual nebula featured here changes its appearance noticeably in just a few weeks. Discovered over 200 years ago and subsequently cataloged as NGC 2661, the remarkable nebula is named for Edwin Hubble, who studied it early last century. Fitting, perhaps, the featured image was taken by another namesake of Hubble: the Space Telescope. Hubble's Variable Nebula is a reflection nebula made of gas and fine dust fanning out from the star R Monocerotis. The faint nebula is about one light-year across and lies about 2500 light-years away towards the constellation of the Unicorn (Monocerotis). The leading variability explanation for Hubble's Variable Nebula holds that dense knots of opaque dust pass close to R Mon and cast moving shadows onto the reflecting dust seen in the rest of the nebula.

The Veil Nebula
.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
.
Delicate in appearance, these filaments of shocked, glowing gas, draped in planet Earth's sky toward the constellation of Cygnus, make up the Veil Nebula. The nebula is a large supernova remnant, an expanding cloud born of the death explosion of a massive star. Light from the original supernova explosion likely reached Earth over 5,000 years ago. Also known as the Cygnus Loop, the Veil Nebula now spans nearly 3 degrees or about 6 times the diameter of the full Moon. That translates to over 70 light-years at its estimated distance of 1,500 light-years. In fact, the Veil is so large its brighter parts are recognized as separate nebulae, including The Witch's Broom (NGC 6960) at the bottom of this stunning skyview and Pickering's Triangle (NGC 6979) below and right of center. At the top is the haunting IC 1340.

L'Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) era il computer di bordo del Programma Apollo della NASA utilizzato, oltre che nel Modulo di Comando, anche all'interno del LEM, Lunar Excursion Module, per le manovre di allunaggio e di decollo dal suolo lunare. Aveva una velocità di calcolo di 2Mhz ed una memoria di 4Kb. Oggi la velocità di calcolo si misura in GHz, ossia migliaia di volte più veloce della tecnologia dell’Apollo. 📲

30 Oct, 2017. Seven months ago
📆
Hopefully I’ll find enough shots “in the can” to get me through until the Milky Way’s galactic core is back in the morning skies in the first quarter of 2018. Posting this photo today means I have one less to get me through, though. This image of the Milky Way’s galactic core rising in the east was taken seven months back (March 31st, 2017) between the inland cities of Goulburn and Canberra, Australia. 😱
I love how much atmospheric airglow was in the sky that night and showed up in my photos. It can be seen here as a green tint to the background sky and was so bright that it silhouetted some clouds just near the horizon. Airglow can be caused by a number of processes in Earth’s upper atmosphere and from my reading seems to be most commonly caused by recombination of atoms which were photoionised by the sun during the day. This phenomenon has been observed around other planets in our solar system. Here on Earth airglow results in the night sky never being completely dark even when there is no man-made light pollution and no moonlight to wash out the scene. 📷
This image was taken with Canon EOS 6D, Rokinon 24mm @ f/2.4, 15 sec @ ISO 8000.

A Year of Full Moons.

Do all full moons look the same? No. To see the slight differences, consider this grid of twelve full moons. From upper left to lower right, the images represent every lunation from 2016 November through 2017 October, as imaged from Pakistan. The consecutive full moons are all shown at the same scale, so unlike the famous Moon Illusion, the change in apparent size seen here is real. The change is caused by the variation in lunar distance due to the Moon's significantly non-circular orbit. The dark notch at the bottom of the full moon of 2017 August is the shadow of the Earth -- making this a partial lunar eclipse. Besides the sometimes exaggerated coloring, a subtler change in appearance can also be noticed on close examination, as the Moon seems to wobble slightly from one full moon to the next. This effect, known as libration, is more dramatic and easier to see in this lunation video highlighting all of the ways that the Moon appears to change over a month (moon-th).

This image of the region surrounding the reflection nebula Messier 78, just to the north of Orion’s belt, shows clouds of cosmic dust threaded through the nebula like a string of pearls. The submillimetre-wavelength observations, made with the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope and shown here in orange, use the heat glow of interstellar dust grains to show astronomers where new stars are being formed. They are overlaid on a view of the region in visible light.

A simple diagram comparing the enormity of UY Scuti (the largest known star within the Milky Way Galaxy) and our Sun. Despite being so huge UY Scuti has a mass of only 30 times that of our sun, even though it is thought to have a radius 1,700 times larger than Sol. This would make the star roughly 8 astronomical units across, meaning the diameter of UY Scuti would extend as far out as the orbit of Saturn. The true enormity of this Star can be seen in this basic image. Our Sun cannot even be seen until the size of the image is enlarged 7 times, at this point the Sun still appears to be nothing more than a tiny spec.

Night sky in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah - the last grand sanctuary of natural darkness. On a typical moonless night over 7500 stars are visible. The Milky Way is visible from horizon to horizon and even Jupiter, are bright enough to cause you to cast a shadow. I shot this photo in the hour between sunset and moonrise. Would love to go back with a wider lens and get the whole panorama on a moonless night. #roadtripamerica
