abcworldnews: First Image Ever Obtained from Mercury Orbit At 5:20 am EDT on Mar. 29, 2011, MESSENGER captured this historic image of Mercury. This image is the first ever obtained from a spacecraft in orbit about the Solar System’s innermost planet. Over the subsequent six hours, MESSENGER acquired an additional 363 images before downlinking some of the data to Earth. The MESSENGER team is currently looking over the newly returned data, which are still continuing to come down.

galaxiesoftheuniverse: NGC 5775 is a spiral galaxy, member of the Virgo Cluster, that lies at a distance of about 85 million light-years. Although the spiral is tilted away from us, with only a thin sliver in view, such a perspective can be advantageous for astronomers.

ALMA Milky Way This alluring all-skyscape was taken 5,100 meters above sea level, from the Chajnantor Plateau in the Chilean Andes. Viewed through the site’s rarefied atmosphere at about 50% sea level pressure, the gorgeous Milky Way stretches through the scene. Its cosmic rifts of dust, stars, and nebulae are joined by Venus, a brilliant morning star immersed in a strong band of predawn Zodiacal light. Still not completely dark even at this high altitude, the night sky’s greenish c...

A cousin for Earth and VenusLocated only 39 light-years from Earth (369 trillion kilometers is very close when studying the Universe!), exoplanet GJ 1132b is about the size of the Earth (14,805 kilometers of diameter). A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found that rocky exoplanet with temperature exceeding 232 degrees Celsius. Life as we know it on Earth wouldn’t sustain such temperatures, but the planet is cold enough to have an atmosphere similar to that of Ven...

NGC 7023: The Iris nebula These clouds of interstellar dust and gas have blossomed 1,300 light-years away in the fertile star fields of the constellation Cepheus. Sometimes called the Iris Nebula, NGC 7023 is not the only nebula in the sky to evoke the imagery of flowers, though. Still, this deep telescopic view shows off the Iris Nebula’s range of colors and symmetries in impressive detail. Within the Iris, dusty nebular material surrounds a hot, young star. The dominant color of the bri...

Aurora in the Backyard: On the night of March 17/18 this umbrella of northern lights unfolded over backyards in Vallentuna, Sweden about 30 kilometers north of Stockholm. A result of the strongest geomagnetic storm of this solar cycle, auroral displays were captured on that night from back and front yards at even lower latitudes, including sightings in the midwestern United States. A boon for aurora hunting skywatchers, the space storm began building when a coronal mass ejection, launched by sol...
