February also saw the release of this spectacular image from the VLT Survey Telescope, showing the Cat’s Paw Nebula (upper right) and the Lobster Nebula (lower left). These are regions of active star formation where the hot young stars are causing the surrounding hydrogen gas to glow red. The very rich field of view also includes dark clouds of dust. With around two billion pixels this is one of the largest images ever released by ESO. Note that the circular features in the image around bright stars are not real; they are due to reflections within the optics of the telescope and camera.

Magical :D

Amazing pictures! :shocked:

Picture of the Moon and Saturn I took last week using my cell phone.
I saw Saturn and Mars through a telescope, they were so beautiful :love:

When I walk at night right now I can see Mars, Venus, and Jupiter along with the moon. Last night I had to pause and just take it all in. I love this universe. I would love nothing more than to have the capacity to go everywhere within it and see it all in person. *sigh*

I love the aurora borealis -I think most of all for the spectacular views and photos as not many are the same..It is really awe inspiring!
I also like the idea that Yo has items that we can use to get the light effects!
this photo is actually from NASA :D

This one is from National Geographic

Rowdy you let this thread die.

Just wanted to share this here quick.

This picture was taken *somewhere* San Diego :angel:
Sadly no cow was morphing into space when it happened but this was actually a SpaceX launch, very cool thing to see in person.

PS: Thanks for all your PMs but as much as I love Yo I also don't wanna end up a hobo. :haha:

Until then :bye: :hug:

This is Parker solar probe which we are sending to study the sun, it will be as close as if the distance between us and the sun was as big as a football field the probe would be 4 inches far from the opponent's post. That's pretty damn close, now it gets more interesting because the wiring and the shield plus the components are all made from a super rare material that can withstand heat as high as 5420 Fahrenheit. Studying the sun we can a better understanding of the Universe after all our entire existence literally rotates around the Sun.

Image

Our biggest challenge will be the solar wind but in order to get there first Parker probe will be traveling 20 times faster than a speeding bullet. We will be using Venus gravitational field in order to get our needed pace, the probe will rotate 7 times around Venus, think of it as a slingshot, this method saves us a massive amount of fuel, so the fuel we take is supposed to be used to slow down the probe as it starts approaching the object we plan to study. Ok that's as much as i wanna write about space on a game forums.

Ps: The Sun is actually white not yellow.

Big fun and big minds are at work on that. I saw the report about the lack of solar flares recently and the weather impact they could have. If the sun continues to stay relatively dormant, this winter could be one of the harshest we've seen in a very long time.

It's unfortunate in cosmic years the human average lifespan is insignificant, not even if you start counting since humanity first started. We have missed out on many wonderful yet very scary night-sky incidents, some which light is yet to reach us, others we have very few years to see through telescopes and many their light has come and gone before we existed. Our solar system yard is pretty quiet and boring compared to other solar system zones in the universe, we exist because these conditions apply but a little night sky action would have been a nice bonus to our planetary package subscription.
