子持ち銀河M51(NGC5194&NGC5195) りょうけん座にある渦巻銀河。 直径およそ10万光年。 地球からおよそ3,700万光年離れたところにある。 すぐ近くに伴銀河NGC5195があることが名前の由来。 子持ち銀河は明るい銀河で双眼鏡でも観測できるためアマチュア天文家にも人気が高い。 #ceres #nebula #galaxy #space #cosmic #nasa #hubble #cassini #wise #space_telescope #system #astronaut #stella #stars #comet #pacman #corona #jaxa #jupiter #saturn #earth #moon #luna #messenger #aurora #sun #flare #alphacentauri #andromeda

彼岸花NGC6357 NGC6357は、これまでに発見された最大級の恒星の幾つかを形成中だ。 塵とガスからなるたくさんの繊維状のものが、複数の重い星団のある空洞を取り囲んでいる。 この画像は、可視光(青色)に加え、赤外線光(橙々色)、X線光(桃色)が合成されている。 NGC6357は幅がおよそ10光年あり、地球から約5,500光年の距離、さそり座の方向にある。 #ceres #nebula #galaxy #space #cosmic #nasa #hubble #cassini #wise #space_telescope #system #astronaut #stella #stars #comet #pacman #corona #jaxa #jupiter #saturn #earth #moon #luna #messenger #aurora #sun #flare #alphacentauri #andromeda

エピメテウス(カッシーニ撮影) エピメテウスは土星の衛星のひとつ。 土星からの平均距離は、15万1,415km。 公転周期、自転周期はともに16時間である。 直径約114kmの氷と岩石の塊で、表面にはクレーターが広範囲に分布し、また大小の山脈や渓谷が存在する。 #ceres #nebula #galaxy #space #cosmic #nasa #hubble #cassini #wise #space_telescope #system #astronaut #stella #stars #comet #pacman #corona #jaxa #jupiter #saturn #earth #moon #luna #messenger #aurora #sun #flare #alphacentauri #andromeda

#FastRepost from @nasa_marshall by @fastrepost_app ••• This view of Saturn looks toward the planet's night side, lit by sunlight reflected from the rings. A mosaic of some of the very last images captured by Cassini’s cameras, it shows the location where the spacecraft would enter the planet's atmosphere hours later. The oval marks the entry site. While this area was on the night side of the planet at the time, it would rotate into daylight by the time Cassini made its final dive into Saturn's upper atmosphere, ending its remarkable 13-year exploration of Saturn.

#Repost @nasa ( @get_repost) ・・・ Saturn’s moon Enceladus drifts before the rings and the tiny moon Pandora in this view that our Cassini spacecraft captured on Nov. 1, 2009. The entire scene is backlit by the Sun, providing striking illumination for the icy particles that make up both the rings and the jets emanating from the south pole of Enceladus. Pandora was on the opposite side of the rings from Cassini and Enceladus when the image was taken. This view looks toward the night side on Pandora as well, which is lit by dim golden light reflected from Saturn.

Con un diámetro aproximado de 1120 km, Dione es otra pequeña luna de Saturno. #Dione es principalmente hielo, con un conjunto de "estrías" que se creían producto de la actividad volcánica, remanente desde su formación; gracias a la "difunta" sonda #cassini, sabemos que aquéllas difusas líneas, eran fallas, llanos y cráteres de varios kilómetros. Dione comparte órbita con la pequeñita luna #Helene.

• Em tais fusões, as galáxias originais são muitas vezes esticadas e separadas à medida que se envolvem em torno de um centro de gravidade comum. Depois de alguns vaivéns, esta tempestade estrelada se estabelece em um objeto novo e redondo. O corpo celestial agora subjugado, catalogado como SDSS J162702.56 + 432833.9, é tecnicamente conhecido como uma galáxia elíptica. Quando as galáxias colidem - um evento comum no universo - uma nova explosão de formação de estrelas geralmente ocorre quando as nuvens de gás se misturam. Neste ponto, a galáxia tem uma tonalidade azul, mas a cor não significa que está frio: é resultado do calor intenso de estrelas azul-brancas recém-formadas. Essas estrelas não duram muito, e depois de alguns bilhões de anos os matizes avermelhados do envelhecimento, estrelas menores dominam o espectro de uma galáxia elíptica. O Hubble ajudou os astrônomos a conhecer esta seqüência observando fusões de galaxia em todas as etapas do processo. No SDSS J162702.56 + 432833.9, algumas fitas de poeira, nomeadamente partes obscuras da região central e azulada da galáxia conglomerada. Essas vias de poeira poderiam ser restos dos braços espirais das galáxias recentemente afastadas. Esta foto foi disparada pela câmera de campo amplo da câmera avançada do Hubble para pesquisas em 2011. A imagem foi feita através de um filtro vermelho (F625W) e azul (F438W). O campo de visão é aproximadamente 2.4 por 2.4 minutos de arco. #astronomy #astrophysics #science #space #universe #solarsystem #news #curiosity #hubble #cassini #photography

The most distant planet that can be seen with the naked eye, it is a true gem. Large enough to fit 95 earths in it, so it is no surprise it has 62 moons. It has 7 groups of rings that stretch out some 70,000 miles from it’s surface which are only a few meter thick and made up of particles the size of dust to the size of mountains. One of it’s moons has liquid ice and looks more like another planet(Titan). The roman god of agriculture and harvest, Saturn. #saturn #planet #rings #ryan_d_astronomy #ice #particles #gasgiant #saturnus #cassini #nasa #nakedeye #beautiful #gem #500mph #6th #moons #astronomy #telescope #look #see #titan #gravity #love

Ich habe noch nie so ein Pferd erlebt 😍 Die Maus ist einfach eine Musterschülerin! Gestern lief sie insgesamt das vierte mal an der Longe mit Sattel. Vorher war sie komplett roh, kannte weder Sattel noch Longe. Bereits beim ersten Mal haben wir uns kurz drüber gelegt und beim zweiten Mal dann im Schritt. Vorgestern haben wir sie dann geführt, als ich drauf saß und gestern lief sie bereits an der Longe. Ich hoffe, dass sie weiterhin so brav mitmacht. #charakterpferd #youngster #younghorse #ausbildung #jungpferd #jungpferdeausbildung #4yo #restorator #cassini #cassini2 #futurehope

After genuinely interesting lecture about Saturn, Michele Dougherty happily met everyone in the audience and answered questions; first time I’d ever met anyone in person who works in the field of space exploration!! They are all extremely intelligent, I’m just pleased I understood a fraction of what she said! #saturn #postcardsfromsaturn #cassini #ifeelstupid

Saturn’s moon Tethys casts a shadow on the planet’s A ring alongside the larger shadow cast by the planet itself in this image taken by the Cassini spacecraft on June 19, 2009, as Saturn approached its August 2009 equinox.  #cassini #saturn #nasa #space

For three decades, our #Cornell scientists have worked on the historic Cassini mission. To commemorate the university’s role in this space exploration, which ended this past September, Cornell Center for Astrophysics and Planetary Science (CCAPS), the Department of Astronomy, and the Spacecraft Planetary Image Facility (SPIF) presented me with a gorgeous spacecraft model. I will find a special place for my miniature #Cassini in my office!

#Repost @nasa ( @get_repost) ・・・ Crescents belonging to two of Saturn’s moons – Rhea and Titan – show off their vast differences. Rhea is a heavily-cratered, airless world, while Titan’s nitrogen-rich atmosphere is even thicker than Earth’s. This natural color image was taken in visible light by the Cassini spacecraft on Nov. 19, 2009, at a distance of approximately 713,300 miles (1,148,000 kilometers) from Rhea. After a nearly 20-year mission that overflowed with discoveries, the Cassini spacecraft ended its mission on Sept. 15, 2017.
