Hurricanes Kilo, Ignacio and Jimena Surround Hawaii

Major Hurricane Kilo is located around 1220 miles west of Honolulu, Hurricane Ignacio is located around 315 miles east of Hilo and Major Hurricane Jimena is located around 1425 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. This image was taken by GOES West on August 31, 2015.

A single plume of plasma, many times taller than the diameter of Earth, rose up from the Sun, twisted and spun around, all the while spewing streams of particles for over two days (Aug. 17-19, 2015) before breaking apart. At times, its shape resembled the Eiffel Tower. Other lesser plumes and streams of particles can be seen dancing above the solar surface as well. The action was observed in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.

Here we see the spectacular cosmic pairing of the star Hen 2-427 — more commonly known as WR 124 — and the nebula M1-67 which surrounds it. Both objects, captured here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope are found in the constellation of Sagittarius and lie 15,000 light-years away.

The star Hen 2-427 shines brightly at the very center of this explosive image and around the hot clumps of surrounding gas that are being ejected into space at over 93,210 miles (150,000 km) per hour.

Hen 2-427 is a Wolf–Rayet star, named after the astronomers Charles Wolf and Georges Rayet. Wolf–Rayet are super-hot stars characterized by a fierce ejection of mass.

The nebula M1-67 is estimated to be no more than 10,000 years old — just a baby in astronomical terms — but what a beautiful and magnificent sight it makes.

or1on_mars Erupção Cria Canyon de Fogo no Sol.

Um filamento magnético de material solar entrou em erupção no sol no final de setembro, quebrando as condições tranquilas de uma forma espetacular. A 200.000 milhas filamentos longos rasgam a atmosfera do Sol, a corona, deixando para trás o que parece ser uma garganta de fogo. A garganta incandescente traça o canal onde os campos magnéticos criam filamentos no ar antes da explosão. Visualizers no Goddard Space Flight Center da NASA em Greenbelt, Md.
Foram dois dias de dados do satélite para criar um pequeno filme deste evento gigantesco no sol.

Na realidade, o sol não é feito de fogo, mas de algo chamado plasma: são partículas tão quentes que seus elétrons fervilham, criando um gás que está entrelaçado com campos magnéticos.

Estas imagens foram capturadas em 29-30 setembro de 2013, pelo Solar Dynamics Observatory da NASA, ou SDO, que constantemente observa o sol em uma grande variedade de comprimentos de onda.

@Regrann from @nasagoddard - Filament Eruption Creates 'Canyon of Fire' on the Sun

A magnetic filament of solar material erupted on the sun in late September, breaking the quiet conditions in a spectacular fashion. The 200,000 mile long filament ripped through the sun's atmosphere, the corona, leaving behind what looks like a canyon of fire. The glowing canyon traces the channel where magnetic fields held the filament aloft before the explosion. Visualizers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. combined two days of satellite data to create a short movie of this gigantic event on the sun.

In reality, the sun is not made of fire, but of something called plasma: particles so hot that their electrons have boiled off, creating a charged gas that is interwoven with magnetic fields.

These images were captured on Sept. 29-30, 2013, by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, which constantly observes the sun in a variety of wavelengths.

Arctic Sea Ice Sets New Record Winter Low

The sea ice cap of the Arctic appeared to reach its annual maximum winter extent on February 25, according to data from the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado, Boulder. At 5.61 million square miles (14.54 million square kilometers), this year’s maximum extent was the smallest on the satellite record and also one of the earliest.

The ghostly shells of galaxy ESO 381-12 are captured here in a new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, set against a backdrop of distant galaxies. The strikingly uneven structure and the clusters of stars that orbit around the galaxy suggest that ESO 381-12 may have been part of a dramatic collision sometime in its relatively recent past.

The shimmering colors visible in this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image show off the remarkable complexity of the Twin Jet Nebula. The new image highlights the nebula’s shells and its knots of expanding gas in striking detail. Two iridescent lobes of material stretch outwards from a central star system. Within these lobes two huge jets of gas are streaming from the star system at speeds in excess of one million kilometers (621,400 miles) per hour.

We can stop #climatechange but we have to do the hard work.
