Illustration of Cool Dust Around an Active Black Hole shows the thick ring of dust that can obscure the energetic processes that occur near the supermassive black hole of an active galactic nuclei. Researchers at the University of Texas San Antonio, using observations from NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), found that the dust surrounding active, ravenous black holes is much more compact than previously thought. #amazing #awesome #cool #hot #day #landscape #nature #beauty #instagood #colors #light #lights #pic #photo #photography #photooftheday #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #explore #adventure #travel #trip #morning #photos #star #stars #nebula #space #science #astronomy

The Great Nebula in Carina
In one of the brightest parts of Milky Way lies a nebula where some of the oddest things occur. NGC 3372, known as the Great Nebula in Carina, is home to massive stars and changing nebulas. The Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324), the bright structure just to the right of the image center, houses several of these massive stars and has itself changed its appearance. The entire Carina Nebula, captured here, spans over 300 light years and lies about 7,500 light-years away in the constellation of Carina. Eta Carinae, the most energetic star in the nebula, was one of the brightest stars in the sky in the 1830s, but then faded dramatically. While Eta Carinae itself maybe on the verge of a supernova explosion, X-ray images indicate that much of the Great Nebula in Carina has been a veritable supernova factory. #amazing #awesome #cool #hot #day #landscape #nature #beauty #instagood #colors #light #lights #pic #photo #photography #photooftheday #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #explore #adventure #travel #trip #morning #photos #star #stars #nebula #space #science #astronomy
