✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - The stellar cloud of Sagittarius

Why Messier cataloged M24? It is not a star cluster, it is not a galaxy, nor is it a nebula. This is why Messier is the most unusual object of the 120 objects that complete its catalog. It is the star cloud of Sagittarius, a void between the clouds of interstellar dust that allows us to see the distant stars of the great spiral arm of Sagittarius, which belongs to our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a window of about 300 light years in diameter in which stars are found that are between 10,000 and 16,000 light years away from Earth. At that distance, with binoculars or a small telescope, we see mixed with the stars, some star clusters and nebulae. Without the dark dust and gas, the entire Milky Way would appear as bright as M24. Messier 24 contains NGC 6603, a weak open cluster of approximately 30 stars, located on the.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - IC 443 by Fényes Lóránd

Like a gelatin candy, the Medusa Nebula, cataloged as IC 443, sits placidly in space. But not everything is what it seems, the Medusa is today the remnant of an immense supernova explosion, the end of the life of a massive star. As we can see, the nebula shines in an intense red color with blue tints, the red one comes from the hydrogen atoms that are ionized by the ultraviolet radiation of the young and hot stars. The same thing happens with oxygen, but to a lesser extent. IC 443 is in the direction of the Constellation of Gemini, part of it is located in the Constellation of Beaver, and is located about 5,000 light years away from Earth. We are therefore, seeing the conditions of the nebula when the kingdoms of high and low Egypt were forming, although not much has changed since then, the image reflects as it was in the year 3,000 BC. But when did the star that generated this remnant explode? It has not yet been possible to define with precision, but it is estimated that the progenitor star exploded between the years 3,000 a.C. and 30,000 a.C. The IC 443 nebula is one of the best examples of how the.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - The Bubble Nebula by Bipradeep Saha

NGC 7635 is an emission nebula, an H II region, in the constellation of Cassiopeia, near the open cluster M52. It was originated by the stellar wind of the central star SAO 20575 (BD + 60 2522), of apparent magnitude 8.7. Due to its shape, it is also called Bubble Nebula. The markedly spherical bubble shape of NGC 7635 marks the boundary between the strong wind of particles coming from inside the star as it collides with the dense surrounding material. The central star has between 10 and 20 times the solar mass and is responsible for the fast winds of 2,000 km / s. The bubble is not uniform because it expands to find regions of cold gas of different density that slow down the expansion, which gives it a wavy appearance. These differences in the material found by the wind is what has made the star not.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - Triangle Constellation

Triangulum, the Triangle, is a small constellation of the north, whose three brightest stars of third and fourth magnitude form an almost isosceles triangle. It is one of the 88 modern constellations and was also one of the 48 listed by Claudio Ptolemy. It should not be confused with the southern hemisphere Southern Triangle constellation. Small in size and lacking bright stars, the object of greatest interest in this constellation is the Triangle Galaxy M33, a spiral galaxy that is part of the Local Group Galaxies Cluster. It is the third most important member of the group after the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy. It is thought that it may be gravitationally bound to the latter. Among the main stars, it should be noted that α Trianguli, also called Metallah or Mothallah, is a spectroscopic binary of 3.41 magnitude, less bright than β Trianguli. γ Trianguli, is a white star of magnitude 4.03. β Trianguli (Deltotum or Deltotron), the brightest of the constellation with magnitude 3.00, a white subgiant star. δ Trianguli, is a yellow dwarf somewhat larger than.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - The Lion and the Wizard by Scott Rosen

The Cepheus constellation contains a large amount of all kinds of nebulae. Encompassing 8 degrees by 5 degrees, this wide-field view is dotted with many of these nebulae. Taking the lower image as a reference, this image includes the Wizard's Nebula, which is the large, bright red emission nebula towards the upper left. The Lion Nebula Sh2-132, is the large emission nebula located near the bottom of the image. The large and weak nebula Sh2-134, the nebula emission complex in the upper right, and Barnard 171, the large dark nebula in the upper right corner). NGC 7380, also known as the Wizard's Nebula, is actually an open cluster of stars in the constellation Cepheus. It was discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1787. Her brother, William Herschel included this astronomical object that his sister discovered in his catalog, the Sharpless Catalog, completed in 1959. It is difficult to see visually, it usually requires powerful telescopes. Sh2-132 is an extended emission nebula visible in the constellation Cepheus. It is located at the southern end of the constellation, a short distance from the.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - Winter Star Party by Hallas

Star Party, known in Spanish as astronomical, or more technically called astronomical session. Compared to other hobbies, astronomy is a minority hobby, few people are inclined to love something as technical and as distant as is the study of objects that exist outside the Earth. However, astronomy is something that we passionates like to share, comment on, or make nocturnal observations in the company of people who are also interested in looking at the sky in a special way. In addition, most of the population is not willing to buy the expensive equipment that requires amateur astronomy. I buy a telescope and I'm going to look at the stars, but this is not the case. First you have to soak up books, browse thematic documentaries, contact people who feel the same as you, and if the bug is still there, you buy the telescope. But the purchases never end, the telescope is the main piece on which will turn all the assembly that accompanies it, color filters, eyepieces of various sizes, Barlow lenses, solar filter, computer with reference astronomical programs, CCD camera , support, table, chairs, coffee, a good snack, and especially fuel in the vehicle to warm up on the most suitable nights to look at the sky, which are also the coldest. When an astrophotographer or astronomer makes a shot of the team and the people that make up an astronomical scene, it is portraying the.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - The open cluster IC 1311

This nebulous region belongs to the Gamma Cygni Nebula Complex and is located a few degrees east of Gamma Cygni, the third brightest star in the Swan Constellation. The nebulosity shown here is quite weak. It is composed mainly of hydrogen, which gives the nebula its characteristic red glow that originates from the emission of the H alpha line at 656.3 nm. The nebula does not have a uniform brightness, in fact there are some dark nebulae located in front of it, the most remarkable of which is Barnard 343, at the bottom in the image. The nebula shines from the ultraviolet light of the hot and massive blue stars of the nebula. IC 1311 is the designation of the cluster of galactic stars located to the right and in the center of the image, which has a brightness of magnitude 13.1. It is located at a distance of.....

✨🇲️🇦️🇬️🇮️🇨️🇦️🇱️ 🇺️🇳️🇮️🇻️🇪️🇷️🇸️🇪️ - Messier 62
M62 is known to be one of the most irregular globular clusters in our galaxy. This could be because it is one of the globular clusters closest to the center of the Milky Way and is affected by the forces of galactic tides, displacing many of the stars of the cluster to the southeast. M62 has an extremely dense core of 150,000 stars. In 2013, astronomers discovered a stellar mass black hole in M62, one of the first to be found in a globular cluster. According to the observations of the Chandra X-ray Observatory, M62 also contains a large number of binary X-ray star systems, which were formed in close encounters between the stars in the cluster. This Hubble observation was taken in ultraviolet and visible light using the Advanced Camera for Investigations and the Wide Field Camera. Most of the globular cluster is presented in this observation, with the.....
