yourdailyuniverse IC 4592: The Blue Horsehead Reflection Nebula.

Do you see the horse's head? What you are seeing is not the famous Horsehead nebula toward Orion but rather a fainter nebula that only takes on a familiar form with deeper imaging. The main part of the above imaged molecular cloud complex is a reflection nebula cataloged as IC 4592. Reflection nebulas are actually made up of very fine dust that normally appears dark but can look quite blue when reflecting the light of energetic nearby stars. In this case, the source of much of the reflected light is a star at the eye of the horse. That star is part of Nu Scorpii, one of the brighter star systems toward the constellation of the Scorpion Scorpius. A second reflection nebula dubbed IC 4601 is visible surrounding two stars on the upper right of the image center.

americaspace The history of spaceflight is full of ground-breaking and revolutionary events as well as great dividing moments of “before and after” in the entire history of the human race. Such examples include the flight of Yuri Gagarin, the first Son of Earth to ever leave our planet, as well as that of Apollo 11 which carried the first human beings onto the lunar surface. The history of astronomy is similarly replete with events of such importance, those that have literary changed the world in ways that weren’t readily obvious at the time. It is not an exaggeration to state that the launch of NASA’s Hubble Space telescope 25 years ago last week can be included in this list. Its importance can be made apparent not least because of the fact that the orbiting observatory has allowed humanity to peer deep into the Universe, so close to the edge of cosmic space and time, while also helping us to visualise its true depth like no other instrument before it.

Taurus Molecular Cloud (TMC-1)
430 light years from Earth

The Taurus molecular cloud 1 (often abbreviated TMC-1) is a giant molecular cloud in the constellation of Taurus.

The cloud is notable for containing many complex molecules, including cyanopolyynes HCnN for n=3,5,7,9.

The Taurus Molecular Cloud is only 140 pc (430 ly) away from earth, making it the nearest large star formation region. It also reveals characteristics that make it ideal for detailed physical studies. It has been important in star formation studies at all wavelengths.

astrophysics_ I hope you all enjoyed this weeks topic on galaxies. I'll likely be starting a new topic either later today or tomorrow, I've chosen nebulae to be the topic for the next week. I'll be discussing how nebulae are created, the different types of nebulae and I'll probably post some of my favourite nebulae. I would also like to thank all of you for over 14 thousand followers. Again I hope you all enjoyed the last topic on galaxies and hope you're looking forward to the next topic on nebulae. And just in case you're wondering the above image is the sombrero galaxy.
Also don't forget to like my Facebook page, there's a link to it in my bio.

No one intuitively understands quantum mechanics because all of our experience involves a world of classical phenomena where, for example, a baseball thrown from pitcher to catcher seems to take just one path, the one described by Newton's laws of motion. Yet at a microscopic level, the universe behaves quite differently.

3inonejc Romans 13 11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and made no provision for the flash, to fulfill its lust. 4h

astro_photography_ Moonrise Through Mauna Kea's Shadow. Image Credit & Copyright: Michael Connelley (U. Hawaii)

How can the Moon rise through a mountain? It cannot -- what was photographed here is a moonrise through the shadow of a large volcano. The volcano is Mauna Kea, Hawai'i, USA, a frequent spot for spectacular photographs since it is arguably the premier observing location on planet Earth. The Sun has just set in the opposite direction, behind the camera. Additionally, the Moon has just passed full phase -- were it precisely at full phase it would rise, possibly eclipsed, at the very peak of the shadow. The Moon is actually rising in the triangular shadow cone of the volcano, a corridor of darkness that tapers off in the distance like converging train tracks. The Moon is too large and too far away to be affected by the shadow of the volcano. Refraction of moonlight through the Earth's atmosphere makes the Moon appear slightly oval. Cinder cones from old volcanic eruptions are visible in the foreground.

The Sombrero Galaxy
.
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:"
.
The Sombrero Galaxy is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 50,000 light-years, 30% the size of the Milky Way. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero.
