Absolutely fantastic. 
Don't worry, it's not as creepy as it sounds.

The Dark Side of Star Clusters

Observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile have discovered a new class of “dark” globular star clusters around the giant galaxy Centaurus A (NGC 5128). These mysterious objects look similar to normal clusters, but contain much more mass and may either harbour unexpected amounts of dark matter, or contain massive black holes — neither of which was expected nor is understood.

Full story here:
http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1519/

What is a globular cluster?

A globular cluster is a spherical collection of up to millions of stars orbiting a galaxy as a satellite. This newly discovered clusters are special because they are unusually massive and dark, making them a new class of star cluster.

1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe

The distinctive three-piece grill (with two body-color segments reaching out to each fender) indicates that this coupe is indeed a representative of the Deluxe line.

The dark cherry metallic paint gracing its softly-rounded curves and noble flat hood indicates that this is one proudly-owned prewar classic.

Six years ago today, our Kepler spacecraft began hunting for planets outside our solar system. From the trove of data collected, we have learned that planets are common, that most sun-like stars have at least one planet and that nature makes planets with unimaginable diversity.

Miner’s Beach Lake Superior
We arrived on the southern shores of Lake Superior in Michigan and set up camp in a town named Munising. After doing a little research I found out there was an interesting waterfall somewhere on Miner’s Beach where the water falls onto layers of sandstone before sliding into the lake.

Read the story behind the image on the blog:
