Did you know your jewellery came from dead stars crashing together in the universe?
.
On 17th August 2017, a gravitational wave signal that came from neutron stars colliding, was detected. A burst of gamma rays was also observed from the same region of the sky that day. .
Receiving multiple messages from the universe lead to the discovery of how some of the heavier elements, such as gold and platinum, in the universe are made.
.
This is a final simulated image of the neutron star collision that occurred on 17th August 2017. .

È stato l’astronomo tedesco Johann Gottfried Galle a scoprire, ben 169 anni fa il pianeta a cui venne dato il nome del dio greco del mare: Nettuno.

Si tratta, escludendo i “pianeti nani”, come Plutone, Sedna ed Eris, del pianeta che è stato scoperto per ultimo. E’ l’ottavo in base alla distanza dal Sole, il quarto per lunghezza del diametro e il terzo in riferimento alla massa.

Johann Gottfried Galle, assistito dal ricercatore Heinrich Louis d’Arrest, individuò Nettuno dall’osservatorio di Berlino proprio il 23 settembre del 1846. La scoperta non avvenne attraverso l’utilizzo di regolari osservazioni celesti, ma fu frutto soprattutto di complicati calcoli matematici, basati sui precedenti studi di Urbain Le Verrier. Le osservazioni con il telescopio che confermavano l’esistenza di un pianeta iniziarono la notte del 23 settembre e finirono al mattino del 24. Fu un evento straordinario. Una scoperta condotta con un metodo innovativo e che venne considerata come la conferma della teoria gravitazionale di Isaac Newton. Come disse in seguito François Arago, era stato scoperto un pianeta “con la punta della penna”.

Like New Zealand, I’m pretty sure there’s more sheep than people in Iceland. Here’s a portrait of a couple mountain sheep hanging out in the highland grasses of the Vestmann Islands. Don’t they’re eyes look a little creepy?

TULIP NEBULA 🌷🛸 Altra elaborazione per l'amico Ivan @nanomalefico78
Officina stellare 105 +asi1600
La foto e come sempre ottenuta tramite la fusione dei due canali di idrogeno e ossigeno ionizzato con canale sintetico tramite la tecnica Cannistra (sia benedetto)

H 32X300"
OIII 29X300"

Si tratta di una grande regione H II situata sul tratto iniziale del Braccio di Orione a circa 2700 parsec (8750 anni luce) di distanza dal sistema solare, al di là del grande complesso nebuloso di Cygnus X, dal quale disterebbe non più di 500 parsec. Tale distanza coincide con quella stimata per l'associazione OBCygnus OB3, che contiene una trentina di stelle massicce delle prime classi spettralicon un'età di circa 8,3 milioni di anni. Si ritiene che la sorgente della radiazione ionizzante i gas della nebulosa sia la stella HD 227018, una gigante blu di classe O6.5III e una magnitudine apparente pari a 9,01.Secondo il catalogo Avedisova la nebulosa ospiterebbe alcuni fenomeni attivi di formazione stellare, come sarebbe testimoniato dalla presenza di quattro sorgenti di radiazione infrarossa riportate sul catalogo dell'IRAS: IRAS 19581+3504, IRAS 19579+3509, IRAS 19584+3506 e IRAS 19584+3515, oltre ad alcune sorgenti di onde radio.

💫تصویر نجومی روز ناسا
۱ مهر ۱۳۹۷ _2018 September 23 ⭕️آنالمای خورشید بر فراز سنگ های کالانیش 💯امتیاز تصویر و کپی رایت: Giuseppe Petricca

آیا خورشید هر روز در یک مکان، به همان نقطه در آسمان بازمی‌گردد؟ خیر
یک روش خوب دیداری برای پاسخ به این سوال ثبت یک آنالما است. ساختن یک تصویر که حاصل ترکیب عکس‌هایی است که همگی از یک نقطه و در یک زمان از روز، در مدت یک سال گرفته شده اند.
این تصویر آنالما از ترکیب عکس‌هایی به دست آمده است که هر چند روز یک بار، ساعت ۴ بعدازظهر، در نزدیکی روستای کالانیش در اسکاتلند انگلستان گرفته شده است. در پیش زمینه تصویر سنگ های کالانیش دیده می شود؛ یک دایره سنگی که در حدود ۲۷۰۰ سال قبل از میلاد در عصر برنز بشریت ساخته شده است. مشخص نیست که قرار دادن سنگ های کالانیش به این شکل، دارای اهمیت نجومی باشد یا نه. دلیل اصلی شکل 8 آنالماهای خورشیدی انحراف محور چرخش زمین و بیضی بودن مدار زمین به دور خورشید است.
با این حال اعتدالین به آنالما خورشیدی مربوط می شود نقطه میانی نقطه تقاطع نیست.

بالاترین و پایین‌ترین نقطه‌های آنالما مربوط به روزهای انقلاب‌ تابستانی و انقلاب زمستانی است. در حالیکه اعتدال‌های بهاری و پاییزی نقطه‌های میانی آنالما هستند.
امروز ساعت ۱:۵۴ بامداد به وقت جهانی، زمان اعتدال پاییزی بود، هنگامی که طول روز و طول شب در سراسر سیاره‌ زمین با هم برابر شد. در بسیاری از فرهنگ‌ها، تغییر فصل را که در این اعتدال‌ها رخ می‌دهد جشن می گیرند.

Turn on sounds to hear the sounds of earth.
(My edit...credit if use)
.
Earth has one moon called lunar
Earth is the 3rd planet from the sun
Earth is 149.6 million km away from the sun.
.
If you look at venus, you may be looking at earths future
Let me explain what I mean....
.
As the sun becomes older, it expands, the sun is getting bigger every year. This makes the earth become hotter.
As the earth becomes hotter the liquid water on earth will eventually evaporate and become part of the atmosphere.
The thick atmosphere will trap the heat from the sun and cook planet earth but this isn't the worst part.
The worst part is that because earth has a strong magnetic field protecting the atmosphere from being blown away by the solar wind the atmosphere will become thicker then venus atmosphere meaning that one day earth will be the hottest planet in the solar system.

Near full moon, so what to photograph, Oh the International Space Station. The moon makes a great natural torch to light up the foreground.

Astronomy is one of the most significant fields of sciences that received a tremendous attention by… Nigerian Scholars since the late 15th and early 16th centuries.

A surprising revelation is that, among these old writings is “several works…on Astronomy” credited to Sheikh Uthman dan Fodiyo—fabled Jihadist of 1804.

Northern Nigeria’s rich astronomical heritage may help explain the little known fact that Prime Minister Tafawa Balewa, the first head of state, was an avid amateur astronomer and the owner of at least two telescopes.

21 сентября 2018 года совершена первая в истории успешная посадка на поверхность астероида! 🚩
-
Два японских миниробота MINERVA-II1A и MINERVA-II1B успешно приземлились на поверхность астероида «Рюгу». Оба находятся в хорошем состоянии и передают с астероида фотографии и данные 📨😃
-
Роботы отделились от японского космического зонда «Хаябуса-2» 🎌. Аппарат был запущен 3 декабря 2014 года. Через год «Хаябуса-2» совершил гравитационный манёвр близ Земли и, получив дополнительное ускорение, отправился к астероиду Рюгу. Зонд летел к астероиду три с половиной года и добрался до него в конце июня 🚀
-
Задачи зонда — изучить астероид и доставить на Землю образцы пород, из которых он состоит 📦
-
«Я был так тронут тем, что эти маленькие самоходные аппараты успешно исследуют поверхность астероида, потому что мы не смогли этого добиться 13 лет назад. Меня особенно впечатлили изображения, сделанные с близкого расстояния на поверхности астероида», — сказал руководитель миссии проекта «Хаябуса-2» Макото Йошикава 💬
-
Диаметр астероида Рюгу составляет около 900 метров, он совершает полный оборот вокруг своей оси за семь с половиной часов. Он находится в 290 млн км от Земли. «Хаябуса-2» проведет на орбите вокруг Рюгу около полутора лет 💫
-
Рюгу принадлежит к астероидам класса С, которые считаются относительно примитивными. Это значит, что на его поверхности могут оказаться органические материалы и гидраты. Изучение химического состава Рюгу может помочь ученым понять ранные этапы эволюции Солнечной системы 🌞
-
Отбытие в обратный путь к Земле планируется в декабре 2019 года. Возвращение на Землю с образцами грунта — декабрь 2020 года 🌍

I Millenari in America a volte ottengono una cattiva reputazione, questa volta per una buona ragione. Una recente indagine ha rilevato che solo il 66% dei giovani adulti di età compresa tra i 18 e i 24 anni hanno "sempre credutoche il mondo fosse rotondo." YouGov ha intervistato 8’215 adulti statunitensi nel febbraio 2018 per avere un'idea rappresentativa delle opinioni dell'America sulla forma della Terra. Ciò che è stato trovato ha fatto scuotere la testa a tutti gli scienziati, una percentuale sorprendente degli intervistati non era convinta che la Terra fosse rotonda. Il sondaggio ha rilevato che il 2% degli americani crede fermamente che la Terra sia piatta, con differenze interessanti segmentate per età, religione, reddito e affiliazione politica. Le credenze religiose sembrano essere correlate alla probabilità di iscriversi ad una Terra piatta, dato che il 52% dei “terrapiattisti” si considera molto religioso. Ma un risultato preoccupante è quello che riguarda la credenza dei più giovani, che seguono con più interesse le star dello sport o della musica, seguendo e credendo ciecamente in ciò che dicono loro piuttosto di ciò che dice la scienza.

My observations on this day 21/09/2018 focused on the moon, but by the way I made a photo of the planet Mars with the camera Sony SLT A-33 using the telescope SW 127/1500 and sincerely a tragedy for me, the Mak type telescope is too dark to observe deep space the problem is the city and street lighting ,I present you my first photo and the second is stellarium , Equipment: SW 127/1500 telescope Mak EQ 3-2 Goto , filtr baader UV IR Cut L,Sony SLT A-33 #planet #mars #milkyway #space #cosmos #astronomy #astroworld #astrophoto #astrology #astrophotographer #astrophotography #picture #picoftheday #pictures #photosesion #photography #photographylover #photos #hashtag #artstagram #instagood #instagram #sony #skywatcher #skynight #likeme #like4likeback #likes #likephoto #instalike

The theory of special relativity gave rise to one of the most famous equations in physics, E=mc^2
This post explains both the mathematical form and physical interpretation of this equation.
