"The Milky Way over Rattlesnake Lake" by Matt Zietzke
Astrophotographer Matt Zietzke took this panoramic image from Rattlesnake Lake near North Bend, Washington on May 19, 2014.
"This panorama was my first attempt at making a night sky panoramic photo, so the first purpose was to see what I could get out of such a shot, and to figure out what the difficulties are in taking such an image . . . I didn’t actually expect for such a cool shot to emerge from the original."
“In a sense, I’m flying by the seat of my pants, experimenting in two subjects I thoroughly enjoy, and I get to share the beauty of the night sky to boot," he added. "It's amazing to me that the only credit I can really take is for the technical knowledge of how to capture the beauty of what’s already out there."

Orion Arising

Orion's belt runs just along the horizon, seen through Earth's atmosphere and rising in this starry snapshot from low Earth orbit on board the International Space Station. The belt stars, Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka run right to left and Orion's sword, home to the great Orion Nebula, hangs above his belt, an orientation unfamiliar to denizens of the planet's northern hemisphere. That puts bright star Rigel, at the foot of Orion, still higher above Orion's belt. Of course the brightest celestial beacon in the frame is Sirius, alpha star of the constellation Canis Major. The station's Destiny Laboratory module is in the foreground at the top right.

Martian Anniversary Selfie
Image Credit: +NASA, JPL-Caltech, MSSS
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140627.html

June 24th marked the first full Martian year of the Curiosity Rover's exploration of the surface of the Red Planet. That's 687 Earth days or 669 sols since its landing on August 5, 2012. To celebrate, consider this self-portrait of the car-sized robot posing next to a rocky outcrop dubbed Windjana, its recent drilling and sampling site. The mosaicked selfie was constructed with frames taken this April and May using the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), intended for close-up work and mounted at the end of the rover's robotic arm. The MAHLI frames used exclude sections that show the arm itself and so MAHLI and the robotic arm are not seen. Famous for panoramic views, the rover's Mastcam is visible though, on top of the tall mast staring toward the left and down at the drill hole.
