✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - The Milky Way from Atacama

This panorama is a fantastic view, a portrait that shows the elongated center of our galaxy over the Atacama Desert during the ESO Ultra HD expedition. The Atacama Desert is the most arid non-polar desert on Earth. It extends into the Great North of Chile, encompassing the regions of Arica and Parinacota, Tarapacá, Antofagasta, Atacama, and the northern part of the Coquimbo region. Surface of approximately 105 000 square kilometers, and has a length of almost 1600 km, with a maximum width of 180 km. Its climate is of cold coastal type and is delimited by the Pacific ocean to the west and by the mountain range of the Andes to the east.

Most of the important observatories of the southern hemisphere of the Earth are distributed among the mountains of the Andes mountain range in Chile. The reasons are obvious, the minimum light pollution and the greater proportion of clear skies in the region, compared to other parts of the planet in the same latitudes. For these reasons, and because Chile has made efforts to reduce light pollution on surrounding roads, most interested nations have observatories in the area.

Highlights include the European Soutern Observatory (ESO) observatories on the Silla and the ALMA (Atacama Large Milimeter Array) radio telescope, a set of antennas for observing the sky using radio waves. The APEX (Atacama Pathfinder Experiment) located in the Llano de Chajnantor is ideal for high-altitude radio astronomy, 5,100 meters high. And more observatories of.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - B72 The Snake Nebula

At Misti Mountain Observatory we collected a spectacular wide field image of the Snake Nebula, cataloged as Barnard 72, a collaboration of Jim Misti with Steven Mazlin. The dense, dark clouds of interstellar dust and serpentine molecular gas at the center of the image form the Snake Nebula. Located in the sky zone that occupies the constellation of Ophiuchus, the nebula is composed mainly of carbon, which absorbs light from the stars and radiates back into the infrared spectrum, this absorption causes the clouds to appear dark. The golden tone of the image is due precisely to the absorption of light by the carbon contained in the large number of dark nebulae and Bock globules scattered throughout the field of vision.

These molecular clouds are places conducive to the formation of new stars. Located about 650 light years from Earth, it covers a width equivalent to a full Moon. Observations with the Spitzer Space Telescope reveal many young stars behind the dark reptilian cloud. These stars are not massive, are of low mass or moderate mass and represent the younger stages of star development. Spitzer also sees.....
