Starry night: brushstrokes of dust in the Milky WayThe flowing textures and vivid colours in this striking image call to mind van Gogh’s most famous painting. In spite of its impressionistic beauty, though, this is not an artist’s illustration—it is actually a snapshot of shimmering dust in a small patch of the southern sky captured by the Planck Space Telescope. Astronomers, including scientists at the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto funded by the CSA, are particula...

WR 104: a pinwheel star system Might this giant pinwheel one-day destroy us? Probably not, but investigation of the unusual star system Wolf-Rayet 104 has turned up an unexpected threat. The unusual pinwheel pattern has been found to be created by energetic winds of gas and dust that are expelled and intertwine as two massive stars orbit each other. One system component is a Wolf-Rayet star, a tumultuous orb in the last stage of evolution before it explodes in a supernova – and event poss...

guy: Mike Rosinski began his exposures, initially planning to capture about 45-55 minutes worth of star trails from his yard in Hartland, Michigan, USA. But he dozed, only to awaken some 3 hours later to find his camera had continued to run until the battery died. Composing the resulting images, the graceful concentric star trails were expected, along with light from a late rising Moon glinting on windows. Still, as he slept on the warm night a blizzard of yellow streaks flooded the scene, not...

operatorsgonnaoperate: Dragon in the Skies. The unique Saab 35 “Draken”, designed during the cold war to act as a High speed bomber interceptor and fighter was adopted by several countries for its unique ability to operate off of reinforced roads. Its design incorporates a very distinctive “double delta”, which gives it superior maneuverability at low speeds. And though it was never designed to be a fighter aircraft, its double delta design had helped it to become a capable dogfighter.

aairplanesandterminals: aviholic: aairplanesandterminals: aerophotography: Airbus A380. Restricting my transatlantic flights to American Airlines has pretty much thrown my chances of flying an A380 out of the window. My best bet of eventually flying one is by booking Emirates the next time I go to the Philippines… How could u settle for such mid level mediocrity??! aviholic A friend of mine works at international HR for American Airlines so I get mad discounted flights. Gonna be saving so...

Taken during my @AirAstana flight KC932 from Bangkok to Almaty on 4 December 2014, there were only six passengers in business class and a number of empty seats in economy. Since it is early December, not many people were heading back home from holiday/business in Thailand or elsewhere. But I saw lots and lots of fruit baskets on the hands of passengers. #vscocam #vscoaviation #vsco #vscocomp #vscocamkz #airastana #aviation #avgeek #airline #Aerospace ##aerosexual

traverse-our-universe: Red Sprites and Gigantic Jets Viewers situated by Shikengkong Mountain’s peak in China eagerly awaited the Perseids of 2016. However, the sky had something else in store– known as a Transient Luminous Event. These red sprites & blue jets put on a gorgeous display as they shoot upwards to our planet’s ionosphere. While sprites are the most common type of TLE, jets, especially gigantic ones, are rarer. This phenomenon is staggering in height– our lightning pales in compa...
