- "Leonids Above Torre de la Guaita Image Credit & Copyright: Juan Carlos Casado (TWAN) Explanation: Leonids Meteor Shower came to an impressive crescendo in 1999. Observers in Europe saw a sharp peak in the number of meteors visible around 0210 UTC during the early morning hours of November 18. Meteor counts then exceeded 1000 per hour - the minimum needed to define a true meteor storm. At other times and from other locations around the world, observers typically reported respectable rates of between 30 and 100 meteors per hour. This photograph is a 20-minute exposure ending just before the main Leonids peak began. Visible are at least five Leonid meteors streaking high above the Torre de la Guaita, an observation tower used during the 12th century in Girona, Spain. In 2014, over the next few nights, the Leonids meteor shower will again peak. This year, although the crescent Moon should not create much competing skyglow, the Earth is predicted to pass through a more moderate stream of debris left over from Comet Tempel-Tuttle than in 1999, perhaps resulting in as many as 15 visible meteors per hour from dark locations.

- "For the 200th post I write about an exoplanet at 200 light years distance from Earth. Kepler-16b is a cold and gaseous planet orbiting around a binary star. The parent stars are smaller than our sun. One is 69 percent the mass of the sun and the other only 20 percent. Kepler-16b orbits around both stars every 229 days, similar to Venus' 225-day orbit, but lies outside the system's habitable zone, where liquid water could exist on the surface, because the stars are cooler than our sun. برای دویستمین نوشتار در مورد پوینده (سیاره)ی فراخورشیدی می‌نویسم که در فاصله ۲۰۰ سال نوری از زمین قرار گرفته است. «کپلر ۱۶بی» پوینده‌ای سرد و گازی است که به دور یک سامانه‌ی ستاره‌ای دوتایی می‌گردد. ستاره‌های مادر کوچکتر از خورشید ما هستند. یکی از آنها ۶۹ درصد و دیگری تنها ۲۰ درصد خورشید جرم دارند. کپلر ۱۶بی هر ۲۲۹ روز یک بار به دور دو ستاره می‌گردد، شبیه به مدار ۲۲۵ روزه‌ی ناهید، اما برخلاف ناهید در بیرون از کمربند زندگی ستارگان مادر، جایی که آب مایع می‌تواند در سطح پوینده وجود داشته باشد، قرار دارد چون این دو ستاره سردتر از خورشید ما هستند Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech Via @astronomy_lover_ Follow Me @astronomy_ins.hq 👉 Click my profile to get 👕Best Shirt!!!

- Via @astronomyuniverse The bright clusters and nebulae of planet Earth's night sky are often named for flowers or insects. Though its wingspan covers over 3 light-years, NGC 6302 is no exception. With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C, the dying central star of this particular planetary nebula has become exceptionally hot, shining brightly in ultraviolet light but hidden from direct view by a dense torus of dust. This sharp close-up of the dying star's nebula was recorded by the Hubble Space Telescope and is presented here in reprocessed colors. Cutting across a bright cavity of ionized gas, the dust torus surrounding the central star is near the center of this view, almost edge-on to the line-of-sight. Molecular hydrogen has been detected in the hot star's dusty cosmic shroud. NGC 6302 lies about 4,000 light-years away in the arachnologically correct constellation of the Scorpion (Scorpius).

- Via @astronomy45 All the Glittering Stars This Hubble Space Telescope image of a sparkling jewel box full of stars captures the heart of our Milky Way galaxy. Aging red giant stars coexist with their more plentiful younger cousins, the smaller, white, Sun-like stars, in this crowded region of our galaxy’s ancient central hub, or bulge. Most of the bright blue stars in the image are likely recently formed stars located in the foreground, in the galaxy's disk. Astronomers studied 10,000 of these Sun-like stars in archival Hubble images over a nine-year period to unearth clues to our galaxy’s evolution. The study revealed that the Milky Way’s bulge is a dynamic environment of variously aged stars zipping around at different speeds, like travelers bustling about a busy airport. The researchers also found that the motions of bulge stars are different, depending on a star’s chemical composition. Stars richer in elements heavier than hydrogen and helium have less disordered motions, but are orbiting around the galactic center faster than older stars that are deficient in heavier elements. The image is a composite of exposures taken in near-infrared and visible light with Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3. The observations are part of two Hubble surveys: the Galactic Bulge Treasury Program and the Sagittarius Window Eclipsing Extrasolar Planet Search. The center of our galaxy is about 26,000 light-years away. Image Credit: NASA, ESA, and T. Brown (STScI) Hubble Space Telescope Follow me @astronomylover4everbest --------------- Stop!!!

- Via @astrodaily1 Saturn's sixth largest moon Enceladus is one of the most scientifically compelling bodies in our solar system. In 2005, the Cassini spacecraft discovered hydrothermal vents on the surface of Enceladus that spew water vapor and ice particles into space. The eruptions of water and ice appear to be continuous, and they supply material that contribute to the massive rings around gas-giant Saturn. More recently in 2015, Cassini scientists used measurements of a very slight wobble in the moon's orbit to determine that a global ocean must be present beneath the icy crust. The subsurface ocean contributes water and ice to the continuously erupting geysers. The surface features of Enceladus are incredible. The water ice surface reflects almost 100 percent of the sunlight that strikes it, resulting in Enceladus being one of the brightest objects in the solar system. The terrain ranges from heavily cratered regions to fissures, plains, and the previously mentioned geysers. The internal mechanisms of Enceladus result in a form of asymmetric tectonic activity, where large portions of the surface all appear to move in one direction. With its internal heat and global ocean, Enceladus has become a front-runner in our search for other worlds that may possess life.

- "A Colorful Moon. The Moon is normally seen in subtle shades of grey. But small, measurable color differences have been greatly exaggerated in this mosaic of high-resolution images captured near the Moon's full phase, to construct a multicolored, central moonscape. The different colors are recognized to correspond to real differences in the mineral makeup of the lunar surface. Blue hues reveal titanium rich areas while more orange and purple colors show regions relatively poor in titanium and iron. The intriguing Sea of Vapors, or Mare Vaporum, is below center in the frame with the sweeping arc of the lunar Montes Apenninus (Apennine Mountains) above it. The dark floor of 83 kilometer diameter Archimedes crater within the Sea of Rains, or Mare Imbrium, is toward the top left. Near the gap at the top of the Apennine's arc is the Apollo 15 landing site. Calibrated by rock samples returned by the Apollo missions, similar multicolor images from spacecraft have been used to explore the Moon's global surface composition.

- Via @astronomypicturesdaily An alluring sight in southern skies, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is seen in this deep and detailed telescopic mosaic. Recorded with broadband and narrowband filters, the scene spans some 5 degrees or 10 full moons. The narrowband filters are designed to transmit only light emitted by hydrogen, and oxygen atoms. Ionized by energetic starlight, the atoms emit their characteristic light as electrons are recaptured and the atoms transition to a lower energy state. As a result, in this image the LMC seems covered with its own clouds of ionized gas surrounding its massive, young stars. Sculpted by the strong stellar winds and ultraviolet radiation, the glowing clouds, dominated by emission from hydrogen, are known as H II (ionized hydrogen) regions. Itself composed of many overlapping H II regions, the Tarantula Nebula is the large star forming region at the left. The largest satellite of our Milky Way Galaxy, the LMC is about 15,000 light-years across and lies a mere 160,000 light-years away toward the constellation Dorado.
