*New* Unreal, Amazing and Breath Taking Photos From Outer Space


Hubble’s Tuning Fork and Galaxy Classification
Coincident with his discovery of Cepheid stars in Andromeda, Edwin Hubble was working in the mid 1920s to study other galaxies in more detail (although at that point it was still common terminology to refer to them as nebulae). It is often the case with the discovery of a new class of objects that astronomers invent a classification scheme as a first step to try to understand these objects. Hubble is credited with creating a classification scheme for galaxies, which is usually referred to as his “Tuning Fork” diagram.

A few telescopic surveys were done to determine the different types of galaxies, one of them was called the “SINGS” survey”

and the other called “KINGFISH”:

And now for some obligatory space photos, which can all be found HERE:

Supernova 1987A:

Two decades ago, astronomers spotted one of the brightest exploding stars in more than 400 years.

Since that first sighting, the doomed star, called Supernova 1987A, has continued to fascinate astronomers with its spectacular light show. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is one of many observatories that has been monitoring the blast’s aftermath.

This image shows the entire region around the supernova. The most prominent feature in the image is a ring with dozens of bright spots. A shock wave of material unleashed by the stellar blast is slamming into regions along the ring’s inner regions, heating them up, and causing them to glow. The ring, about a light-year across, was probably shed by the star about 20,000 years before it exploded.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 4622 Spins “Backwards”:

Astronomers have found a spiral galaxy that may be spinning to the beat of a different cosmic drummer.
To the surprise of astronomers, the galaxy, called NGC 4622, appears to be rotating in the opposite direction to what they expected..

Ring of Hot Blue Stars Pinwheels Around Yellow Nucleus of Hoag’s Object Galaxy:

Two galaxies swing past each other in a graceful performance choreographed by gravity. This is one of hundreds of interacting and merging galaxies known in our nearby universe:

Hubble-Magellan Composite of M83:

Pandora’s Cluster – Abell 2744:

Star V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon):

When a massive star exploded, spewing out its gaseous layers into a turbulent, star-forming region of the Large Magellanic Cloud, it left behind this chaotic cloud of gas and dust. The star that produced this supernova remnant was probably 50 times the mass of our Sun:

Cassiopeia A: Colorful, Shredded Remains of Old Supernova:

Mars:

Multiple Impacts From Comet P/Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter:

Bright Clouds on Uranus:

Saturn’s Ultraviolet Aurora:

Hubble Shows that Jupiter’s Great Red Spot Is Smaller than Ever Seen Before:

In this image by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, an unusual, ghostly green blob of gas appears to float near a normal-looking spiral galaxy:

Looking like an apparition rising from whitecaps of interstellar foam, the iconic Horsehead Nebula has graced astronomy books ever since its discovery over a century ago:

Dark Globule and Stellar Jet in the Carina Nebula:
The tadpole-looking feature in the center of this image is a nodule of cold hydrogen gas laced with dust.

Close Up of Ancient, White Dwarf Stars in the Milky Way Galaxy:

A planetary nebula called NGC 5189. The intricate structure of this bright gaseous nebula resembles a glass-blown holiday ornament with a glowing ribbon entwined:

The Bug Nebula, NGC 6302, is one of the brightest and most extreme planetary nebulae known. The fiery, dying star at its center is shrouded by a blanket of icy hailstones. This NASA Hubble Wide Field Plantery Camera 2 image shows impressive walls of compressed gas, laced with trailing strands and bubbling outflows:

Celestial Fireworks: Sheets of Debris From a Stellar Explosion (N 49, DEM L 190):

This is a false-color view of a planetary debris disk encircling the star HD 107146, a yellow dwarf star very similar to our Sun, this is the only disk to have been imaged around a star so much like our own.

Hubble Supernova Bubble Resembles Holiday Ornament:

The Veil Nebula, left behind by the explosion of a massive star thousands of years ago, is one of the largest and most spectacular supernova remnants in the sky. This is only a small section of it:

Hubble Sees a Cosmic Caterpillar:

The Necklace Nebula:

Saturn’s Dynamic Auroras:

Doomed Star Eta Carinae:

Anything that ever happened, to anyone, in all of history happened here:

I feel that any astronomy thread should have a star size chart/video included, so here again is the complimentary star size guide:

Comments

  1. When I get rid of this meat suit I’d rather like to float around for a coupla thousand years just quietly observing the mechanics of all this..crackin vid too,mind suitably blown…I’ll hafta roll up a fattie boombalattie & do some contemplating now
    🙂

  2. Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

    share. Thank you!

  8. obviously like your web-site however you have to take a look
    at the spelling on several of your posts. A number
    of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding
    it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand
    I’ll certainly come again again.

  9. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked
    submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing
    all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say great blog!

  10. I really like what you guys are usually up too. Such clever
    work and coverage! Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve included you guys
    to my own blogroll.

  11. Howdy, I believe your website could possibly be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.

    More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you surely have the gift.

  14. I think that everything posted made a great deal
    of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little
    information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something
    that makes people want more? I mean *New* Unreal, Amazing and Breath Taking
    Photos From Outer Space | Thelemic Gnosticism is kinda boring.

    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab
    readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would
    make your blog a little bit more interesting.

  15. Currently I am hoping why we made a decision to write about the forthcoming closing of the modest,
    personal, ladies’s liberal-arts faculty, you realize.
    and it has a huge amount of holds under his gear|has a bunch of provides under his gear and is 27 McCoy got smacked not pretty bad, next merely place about the subject
    in ache for a time at the conclusion of the 9 -yard run.
