It’s a long ways down. This is a view from the vantage point of astronaut Shane Kimbrough during his spacewalk last Friday outside the International Space Station. Shane posted this photo and wrote, “ View of our spectacular planet (and my boots) during the #spacewalk yesterday with @Thom_astro.” During the spacewalk with Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet of ESA, which lasted just over six-and-a-half hours, the two astronauts successfully disconnected cables and electrical connectio...

The Horsehead nebula from blue to infrared One of the most identifiable nebulae in the sky, the Horsehead Nebula in Orion, is part of a large, dark, molecular cloud. Also known as Barnard 33, the unusual shape was first discovered on aphotographic plate in the late 1800s. The red glow originates from hydrogen gas predominantly behind the nebula, ionized by the nearby bright star Sigma Orionis. The darkness of the Horsehead is caused mostly by thick dust, although the lower part of the Horsehead...

NGC 206 and the Star Clouds of Andromeda: The large stellar association cataloged as NGC 206 is nestled within the dusty arms of the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. Also known as M31, the spiral galaxy is a mere 2.5 million light-years away. NGC 206 is near top center in this gorgeous close-up of the southwestern extent of Andromedas disk, a remarkable composite of data from space and ground-based observatories. The bright, blue stars of NGC 206 indicate its youth. In fact, its youngest massive st...

#latergram My favourite shot of @tigerairmandala Airbus A320 PK-RMU, taken on 28 June 2014. ✈ When I took this shot, Kris Dayanti’s Jangan Pergi (Don’t Go) song came to mind. A cry for one’s lover not to leave her/him behind. Each time Kris Dayanti sings this song, I get chills down my spine. Jangan pergi  Bersamaku di sini  Menemani hari sepiku  Takkan lagi buka lembaran lalu  Kan mengusik luka lama  Jangan pergi dariku, tinggalkan ku  Bawa daku ke mana kau pergi  Jangan la...

The Dust Monster in IC 1396 : Is there a monster in IC 1396? Known to some as the Elephant’s Trunk Nebula, parts of gas and dust clouds of this star formation region may appear to take on foreboding forms, some nearly human. The only real monster here, however, is a bright young star too far from Earth to hurt us. Energetic light from this star is eating away the dust of the dark cometary globule near the top of the featured image. Jets and winds of particles emitted from this star are also pu...
