VEIL NEBULA: WISPS OF AN EXPLODED STAR Image Credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)



Wisps like this are all that remain visible of a Milky Way star. About 7,000 years ago that star exploded in a supernova leaving the Veil Nebula. At the time, the expanding cloud was likely as bright as a crescent Moon, remaining visible for weeks to people living at the dawn of recorded history. Today, the resulting supernova remnant, also known as the Cygnus Loop, has faded and is now visible only through a small telescope directed toward the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus). The remaining Veil Nebula is physically huge, however, and even though it lies about 1,400 light-years distant, it covers over five times the size of the full Moon. The featured picture is a Hubble Space Telescope mosaic of six images together covering a span of only about two light years, a small part of the expansive supernova remnant. In images of the complete Veil Nebula, even studious readers might not be able to identify the featured filaments.

CONJUNCTION OF THE PLANETS AND CRESCENT MOON Taken by Nima Asadzadeh on September 19, 2017 @ Urmia, Iran





This morning the crescent moon was shining before sunshine! and planets were lined up together.

Comet Asassn is very faint, but was in good alignment with the constellation Pleiades.

ZODIACAL LIGHT, AURORAS, THE MOON AND VENUS Taken by Matti Helin on September 18, 2017 @ Finland



I went to shoot the Moon and Venus, but then the auroras stole my attention.

When I finally started photographing the conjunction, I saw a dim light surrounding the heavenly bodies.

I was a bit surprised to see it, because it was not in a particularly dark place.

Here in the northern hemisphere the zodiacal light can be seen in the morning sky during fall.

ORION ABOVE EASTER ISLAND Image Credit & Copyright: Yuri Beletsky (Carnegie Las Campanas Observatory, TWAN)



Why were the statues on Easter Island built? No one is sure. What is sure is that over 800 large stone statues exist there. The Easter Island statues, stand, on the average, over twice as tall as a person and have over 200 times as much mass. Few specifics are known about the history or meaning of the unusual rock sculptures, but many believe that they were created about 700 years ago in the images of local leaders of a lost civilization. Featured here, one of the ancient Moai sculptures was imaged in 2016 before the constellation of Orion, including the famous line of three belt stars and brilliant stars Betelgeuse (far left in red) and Rigel (upper center). The stone giant appears, however, to be inspecting the brightest star in the night sky (far right): Sirius.

CASSINI'S LAST LOOKS AT SATURN



In its final hours, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft returned these last looks at Saturn, its rings and moons, as it prepared to end its nearly 20-year voyage in space. This video includes the final image Cassini took, which shows the cloud tops where it would later plunge into the atmosphere.
