APOD: Solar Eclipse from Uganda (2013 Nov 08) Image Credit & Copyright: Jaime Vilinga - collaboration / Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131108.html Explanation: The Sun's disk was totally eclipsed for a brief 20 seconds as the Moon's dark umbral shadow raced across Pokwero in northwestern Uganda on November 3rd. So this sharp telescopic view of totality in clear skies from the central African locale was much sought after by eclipse watchers. In the inspiring celestial scene the Moon just covers the overwhelmingly bright photosphere, the lower, normally visible layer of the Sun's atmosphere. Extending beyond the photosphere, the reddish hydrogen alpha glow of the solar chromosphere outlines the lunar silhouette, fading into the Sun's tenuous, hot, outer atmosphere or corona. Planet-sized prominences reaching beyond the limb of the active Sun adorn the edges of the silhouette, including a cloud of glowing plasma separated from the chromosphere near the 1 o'clock position. http://www.iap.fr/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131108 #APOD

APOD: Saturn, Titan, Rings, and Haze (2013 Jul 29) Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130729.html Explanation: This is not a solar eclipse. Pictured above is a busy vista of moons and rings taken at Saturn. The large circular object in the center of the image is Titan, the largest moon of Saturn and one of the most intriguing objects in the entire Solar System. The dark spot in the center is the main solid part of the moon. The bright surrounding ring is atmospheric haze above Titan, gas that is scattering sunlight to a camera operating onboard the robotic Cassini spacecraft. Cutting horizontally across the image are the rings of Saturn, seen nearly edge on. At the lower right of Titan is Enceladus, a small moon of Saturn. Since the image was taken pointing nearly at the Sun, the surfaces of Titan and Enceladus appear in silhouette, and the rings of Saturn appear similar to a photographic negative. Now if you look really really closely at Enceladus, you can see a hint of icy jets shooting out toward the bottom of the image. It is these jets that inspired future proposals to land on Enceladus, burrow into the ice, and search for signs of extraterrestrial life. http://www.ciclops.org/view/2055 http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA08235 http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/photos/imagedetails/?imageID=2222 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130729 #APOD
