APOD: LDN 988: Dark Nebula in Cygnus (2014 Nov 20) Image Credit & Copyright: Bob Franke Explanation: Obscuring the rich starfields of northern Cygnus, dark nebula LDN 988 lies near the center of this cosmic skyscape. Composed with telescope and camera, the scene is some 2 degrees across. That corresponds to 70 light-years at the estimated 2,000 light-year distance of LDN 988. Stars are forming within LDN 988, part of a larger complex of dusty molecular clouds along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy sometimes called the Northern Coalsack. In fact, nebulosities associated with young stars abound in the region, including variable star V1331 Cygni shown in the inset. At the tip of a long dusty filament and partly surrounded by a curved reflection nebula, V1331 is thought to be a T-Tauri star, a sun-like star still in the early stages of formation.

An estuary formed by the confluence of the rivers Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto and preserved by the confluence of a community. My work from the last 8 years has just been published as Lowcountry Legacy in the November 2014 issue of @natgeo. I’ll be posting more from the essay @vincentjmusi #acebasin #CHS

Close Encounters: Comet Siding Spring Seen Next to Mars: This composite Hubble Space Telescope Image captures the positions of comet Siding Spring and Mars in a never-before-seen close passage of a comet by the Red Planet, which happened at 2:28 p.m. EDT Oct. 19, 2014. At that time, the comet and Mars were about 149 million miles from Earth. The Mars and comet images have been added together to create a single picture to illustrate the angular separation, or distance, between the comet and Mars at closest approach. The separation is approximately 1.5 arc minutes, or one-twentieth of the angular diameter of the full moon. The background star field in this composite image is synthesized from ground-based telescope data provided by the Palomar Digital Sky Survey, which has been reprocessed to approximate Hubble's resolution.

Whether you’re exploring your city or forging new paths, awe-inspiring scenery is all around us. For this week’s #photochallenge, we’re partnering with @getolympus to explore the great outdoors. We want to see your photos of the #landscapes that call to you: a crowded city street, a stretch of rural countryside or the ocean waves at dawn, for example. Tag your photos with #GreatOutdoorsPromo to submit for your chance to #win a new Olympus camera and lens. Click on the link in our profile for more info. (Image: @mcclure_photo)

A beautiful #sunset at Cape Cod #NationalSeashore! Student Conservation Association (@the_SCA) member Leif Johnson (@leifjhnsn) recently captured this photo of Coast Guard Beach in #Massachusetts while serving as a Wildlife Monitoring Intern. #CapeCod National Seashore is known for its pristine sandy beaches, lighthouses and wild cranberry bogs.
