The Helix Nebula from Blanco and Hubble How did a star create the Helix nebula? The shapes of planetary nebula like the Helix are important because they likely hold clues to how stars like the Sun end their lives. Observations by the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope and the 4-meter Blanco Telescope in Chile, however, have shown the Helix is not really a simple helix. Rather, it incorporates two nearly perpendicular disks as well as arcs, shocks, and even features not well understood. Even so, ma...

Messier 6 and comet Siding Spring  This looks like a near miss but the greenish coma and tail of Comet Siding Spring (C/2013 A1) are really 2,000 light-years or so away from the stars of open cluster Messier 6. They do appear close together though, along the same line-of-sight in this gorgeous October 9th skyscape toward the constellation Scorpius. Still, on Sunday, October 19th this comet really will be involved in a near miss, passing within only 139,500 kilometers of planet Mars. That’...

This bland-looking building is the Central State Museum of the Kazakh Republic, which is one of the largest museums I have ever been to. Housing a number of local Kazakh artefacts, the museum also has a good number of expositions of the country’s history. During the visit, Aida Abirova, the Air Astana PR coordinator explained a lot more about her country to me. That was the start of a very interesting and gorgeous Saturday, which included lunch at an Italian restaurant. #vscocam #vsco #...

Night over Lake Tanaya One of the jewels of Yosemite National Park was carved out of the granite by glaciers flowing out of the Tuolumne ice sheet during the last ice age. Sited nearly 2,500 metres up, it also has a fairly dark sky, an increasing rarity in this day and age. We should all make the effort to savour a dark sky in person as often as possible, so as to not lose touch with the universe out there in favour of that in our electronic gizmos, or the hectic bustle of modern life.
