stillkillinitdaily Hubble Ultra-Deep Field
Composed from 10 years of data.
And contains roughly 15,000 Galaxies.
Every little spec of light you see is an entire galaxy containing billions of stars! Located southwest of Orion in the southern-hemisphere constellation Fornax, the rectangular image is 2.4 arcminutes to an edge, or 3.4 arcminutes diagonally. This is approximately one tenth of the angular diameter of a full moon viewed from Earth, which is smaller than a 1 mm by 1 mm square of paper held at 1 meter away, and equal to roughly one thirteen-millionth of the total area of the sky.
If you can comprehend what that means.. your mind should have exploded.

milkyastronomy In this image taken by the mighty Hubble, the bright southern hemisphere star RS Puppis, at the center of the image, is swaddled in a gossamer cocoon of reflective dust illuminated by the glittering star. The super star is ten times more massive than our Sun and 200 times larger.

Normal IN SCIENCE WE TRUST ❘❙❚
_science_is_amazing This NASA Hubble Space Telescope photo of NGC 7714 presents an especially striking view of the galaxy's smoke-ring-like structure. The golden loop is made of sun-like stars that have been pulled deep into space, far from the galaxy's center. The galaxy is located approximately 100 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Pisces.

The universe is full of such galaxies that are gravitationally stretched and pulled and otherwise distorted in gravitational tug-o'-wars with bypassing galaxies.

The companion galaxy doing the "taffy pulling" in this case, NGC 7715, lies just out of the field of view in this image. A very faint bridge of stars extends to the unseen companion. The close encounter has compressed interstellar gas to trigger bursts of star formation seen in bright blue arcs extending around NGC 7714's center.

The gravitational disruption of NGC 7714 began between 100 million and 200 million years ago, at the epoch when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.

The image was taken with the Wide Field Camera 3 and the Advanced Camera for Surveys in October 2011.

The Hubble Space Telescope is a project of international cooperation between NASA and the European Space Agency. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt,

brett2027 A closer look at the #Moon's SW quadrant, coming into view as the Moon waxes. The Moon's South is at the top as viewed from #Sydney/the Southern Hemisphere. Some easy-to-recognise sights: the small #crater with the 'pimple' in the centre of the picture is #Tycho, the crater above it with two craters on its rim and two in its interior is #Clavius

brett2027 Tonight's waxing #Moon in #Sydney. We see the Moon 'upside-down' in the Southern Hemisphere so the #Lunar South is at the top.

  •   brett2027 Braved the mozzies and got the 'scope out for a bit 3h
  •   ottofrank Nice and clear detailed photo! Which scope did you use for this? 2h
  •   brett2027 Thanks @ottofrank. I've got a Celestron #SkyProdigy 130 - little disappointed with it as the focus is quite sloppy (quite difficult to focus via the camera's live-view) and it wobbles quite easily (so use my Nikon's mirror-up mode and remote cable). But, need to practise I guess! 1h
  •   ottofrank Have you tried using a bahtinov mask, @brett2027 ? They are quite easy to understand. But I guess you're right; practice makes perfect! 56min
  •   brett2027 Ooo, not heard of that @ottofrank - checking it out on the Internet now ... interesting! 51min

abbas_alshatti The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured this striking view of spiral galaxy NGC 7714. This galaxy has drifted too close to another nearby galaxy and the dramatic interaction has twisted its spiral arms out of shape, dragged streams of material out into space, and triggered bright bursts of star formation.
NGC 7714 is 100 million lightyears away from Earth.
