Amazing Cosmic Images

A view of a Jovian total solar eclipse, caused by Ganymede casting a shadow on Jupiter, seen from NASA's Juno spacecraft.

Welcome to NGC 5068!
Shining in this new Hubble image, this galaxy contains a bright central bar, which is a densely packed region of mature stars seen up top.A black hole lurks behind the bar, tugging the stars together with its gravitational pull

NGC 685 is a spiral galaxy about 58 million light-years away. The whole galaxy is about 60,000 light-years across – a little more than half the size of our Milky Way:
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has already changed so much; imagine what we will know in the next few decades.

Betelgeuse, the tenth-brightest star in the night sky.
Chandra is studying an Ultraluminous X-ray Source (ULX) in the constellation Horologium, "the timepiece." Nearby in the sky is NGC 1510 (right), a dwarf galaxy that will eventually become part of the larger barred spiral galaxy on the left, NGC 1512.

Boomerang Nebula
it was given this nickname back in 1980 by astronomers using ground-based telescopes.Hubble's clear vision revealed more details about its shape:

Ring galaxies, like AM 2026-424, are quite rare. Only a few hundred reside in our cosmic neighborhood. Galaxies have to collide in just the right way to create the ring, sometimes creating scary faces like the one here.

Chandra is studying a galaxy in the constellation Lepus, "the hare." Nearby in the sky is a planetary nebula called the Spirograph Nebula. Located about 3,900 light-years from Earth, this cosmic jewel is roughly 0.3 light-years across — about 2.84 trillion kilometers.

Vela Pulsar:This is the aftermath of a star that collapsed and exploded and now sends a remarkable storm of particles and energy into space. The image combines X-ray light detected by Chandra and IXPE (NASA’s Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer).

Latest images from NASA's James Webb telescope


Researchers discovered a radical spike in carbon-14, evidence of a massive flare that dwarfs the largest measured solar flare event.
Nothing interesting, if he had brains he would have just posted the link to the site, instead of lifting all the images and posting them here.. Yawn yawn .. nothing original. Would have been something if he had taken them himself.. then would have something to be proud of…

By the way here’s a couple of images I took 12 years ago…

Where did you take these pictures, and what equipment did you use?
Completed that series a long time ago along with Another Life, Lost in Space, Away, Travellers, Tribes of Europa, Ancient Apocalypse, Orbiter 9, Stowaway, The Wandering Earth, The 100 etc.
There are a few on Disney Plus like Orville, Ahsoka, Andor, Mandalorian, Boba fett, Obi-wan Kenobi and waiting for the much advertised Acolyte.
I can't sleep if I don't watch something Sci-fi lol.

A gentle reminder

Largest Black Hole ever discovered compared to our Solar System.
