APOD: Auroral Corona over Norway (2014 Oct 14) Image Credit & Copyright: Harald Albrigtsen http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap141014.html Explanation: Higher than the highest mountain lies the realm of the aurora. Auroras rarely reach below 60 kilometers, and can range up to 1000 kilometers. Aurora light results from energetic electrons and protons striking atoms and molecules in the Earth's atmosphere. Somewhat uncommon, an auroral corona appears as a center point for a surrounding display and may occur when an aurora develops directly overhead, or when auroral rays are pointed nearly toward the observer. This picturesque but brief green and purple aurora exhibition occurred last month high above Kvaløya, Tromsø, Norway. The Sessøyfjorden fjord runs through the foreground, while numerous stars are visible far in the distance. 2015 APOD Calendar: Land and Skyscapes http://friendsofapod.org/?page_id=42 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=141014 #APOD

Our Hubble Space Telescope finds big surprise in teeny tiny galaxy: A supermassive black hole with a mass 21 million times our sun. The black hole is five times the mass of the one at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. It is inside one of the densest galaxies known to date -- the M60-UCD1 dwarf galaxy that crams 140 million stars within a diameter of about 300 light-years, which is only 1/500th of our galaxy’s diameter. If you lived inside this dwarf galaxy, the night sky would dazzle with at least 1 million stars visible to the naked eye. Our nighttime sky as seen from Earth’s surface shows 4,000 stars. This is an artist's view of M60-UCD1 black hole. Image Credit: NASA, ESA, STScI-RCC14-41a #nasa #space #galaxy #milkyway #blackhole #astronomy #stars #hubble #hst #telescope #science
