Stardust in Aries

Yeah, I’m pretty sure they do, but just like how other creatures in the universe can’t see the same way we can see (dogs), it doesn’t make what we can perceive with the naked eye any less impressive, IMO.

The Eagle and The Swan

I predict this is going to get reposted on facebook with the following title in ~3 days with the following caption: “Look, God put Mary’s face in the stars!”

Milky Way

They are nice, I have a Mac and I guess I just never bothered to look at the default ones. I knew it came with the Andromeda one (I think it’s Andromeda) but that is it. I’ve always used my own. I love the

The Medusa Nebula

I don’t know about the Very Large Telescope which took this photo, but I can tell you how amateur astronomers make colors come out in nebula photographs. They use what are called filters, which let some light through, and block others. Some use simple

Seasonal Streaks Point to Recent Flowing Water on Mars

Of which none have contained any firm evidence of fossilized microbes…. There’s simply not enough evidence yet for a solid, scientific claim. Your belief which you seem to cling to so dearly is entirely hypothetical until proven true. It doesn’t seem like you’re the

Eclipsed Moon in the Milky Way

I keep looking for an eclipsed moon. Is it that bright star? Is that the moon from the other side? I feel stupid not being able to see it. EDIT: Wait, is this an exposure thing? Is the black, eclipsed moon that bright when

The (not so) Blue Moon

At the speeds these objects are flying, even say a glancing 45 degree impact has enough kinetic energy to cause a massive explosion that is powerful enough to annihilate the rest of the meteor. This explosive force radiates outward, creating a spheroid shape, vaporizing

Two galaxies in the process of colliding

[This will explain the colors in a fun little walkthrough.]( I’m not actually aware of how the above image was colorized, though it appears to just be augmented true coloration. The telescope collects data on the light wavelengths coming from the galaxies and colors

Martian landslide caught mid fall

Depends, I guess. If you are referring to guys like Messner, who climb eight-thousanders without oxygen, then it’s true. But they usually spend a couple of weeks on a plateau level, maybe 5000m or so, to get acclimatized to altitude, before they try to

Milky Way Through a Derelict Pier in Florida

ISO is highly dependent on the camera you are shooting with. Newer sensors enable users to get up into the ISO 5000 range with very little noise in the shadows. As far a star trailing goes, exposure length is best determined by your focal

A Laser Strike at the Galactic Center

> In mid-August 2010 ESO Photo Ambassador Yuri Beletsky snapped this photo at ESO’s Paranal Observatory, Chile. A group of astronomers were observing the centre of the Milky Way using the laser guide star facility at Yepun, one of the four Unit Telescopes of

Full Moon

[Here](http:[email protected]/5866368512/in/pool-imthere/) is the photo from the photographer. It seems it isn’t Photoshopped, but has been messed with? I’m not entirely sure what all of his wording means, in all fairness. **Lunar Eclipse – June 16, 2011** This image is a hybrid of medium resolution

Panoramic of the Moon’s Surface by Chang’e 3

It’s all about exposure time and aperture. In order for visible light from the stars to be seen, you’d need a longer exposure to allow the camera’s sensor’s to “soak” up more of that light. Since light is reflecting off the surface of the
