Wow this is one of the coolest space infographics I've seen! Check it out and comment how far you got

NGC 7293: The Helix Nebula

Explanation: A mere seven hundred light years from Earth, in the constellation Aquarius, a sun-like star is dying. Its last few thousand years have produced the Helix Nebula (NGC 7293), a well studied and nearby example of a Planetary Nebula, typical of this final phase of stellar evolution. A total of 28.5 hours of exposure time have gone in to creating this deep view of the nebula. Combining narrow band image data from emission lines of hydrogen atoms in red and oxygen atoms in blue-green hues, it shows remarkable details of the Helix's brighter inner region, about 3 light-years across, but also follows fainter outer halo features that give the nebula a span of well over six light-years. The white dot at the Helix's center is this Planetary Nebula's hot, central star. A simple looking nebula at first glance, the Helix is now understood to have a surprisingly complex geometry.

Astronomy Picture of the Day: 01/04/14 - The Fireworks Galaxy

To start off 2014 right, this is the Fireworks Galaxy, aptly named given its brilliance. NGC 6946, as it is formally known as, lies about 10 million light-years from Earth in the constellation of Cepheus. When it was originally discovered by Sir William Herschel, the galaxy was widely believed to be a member of our local group, which is made up of over 50 galaxies, including several other dwarf-galaxies. It wasn't until years later that astronomers discovered that the reddening seen enveloping the galaxy was from interstellar dust grains, obscuring our view (instead of red-shift).

Speaking of red, the applicable areas are star forming regions, teeming with new-life -- while the blue bits are actually celestial members of our own galaxy, which are obstructing our view of NGC 6946. Interestingly, several new supernova remnants have been discovered each year for the last 60 lurking within NGC 6946's spiral arms. This is very unusual, as it is normal to only witness one supernova blast every 30 years in galaxies similar to our own.

Chefchaouen, Morocco

Or... every shade of blue in this town...

Every corner you turn, you see the walls and arches and ceilings and ground painted blue. It's unbelievable and dreamy!

Why is everything painted blue? I did a little research. 

Even though Morocco is now 99% Muslim, this blueness has a Jewish origin. It is a medieval remnant from the late 15th century exodus from Europe during the Spanish Inquisition, which nobody ever expected. Chefchaouen was a refugee camp with many Jews, and they painted their buildings blue as a sign of God's power above.

Motion is something that is very difficult to show in a still photograph. Artist Laurence Demaison masterfully creates fluid motion on film using technique and vision! http://ow.ly/spX2E
