APOD: Venus, Zodiacal Light, and the Galactic Center (2013 Oct 18) Image Credit & Copyright: Juergen Schmoll (Durham University, CfAI) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131018.html Explanation: The bulging center of our Milky Way Galaxy rests on a pillar of light in this luminous skyscape. Recorded on September 22nd in dark South African skies, rivers of dust seem to flow downward from the galactic center towards Antares, yellowish alpha star of the constellation Scorpius, near the top of the scene. The brightest celestial beacon present is not a star at all though, but planet Venus, still dominant in the western sky after sunset. Of course, the pillar of light stretching upward from the horizon is Zodiacal light. Sunlight scattered by dust along the plane of the ecliptic creates the zodiacal glow, prominent in the evening after twilight during the southern hemisphere spring. http://www.dur.ac.uk/cfai/ http://www.dur.ac.uk/physics/staff/profiles/?username=dph1js Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131018 #APOD

APOD: The Great Carina Nebula (2013 Oct 15) Image Credit & Copyright: Lorand Fenyes http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131015.html Explanation: A jewel of the southern sky, the Great Carina Nebula, also known as NGC 3372, spans over 300 light-years, one of our galaxy's largest star forming regions. Like the smaller, more northerly Great Orion Nebula, the Carina Nebula is easily visible to the unaided eye, though at a distance of 7,500 light-years it is some 5 times farther away. This gorgeous telescopic portrait reveals remarkable details of the region's glowing filaments of interstellar gas and obscuring cosmic dust clouds. Wider than the Full Moon in angular size, the field of view stretches over 300 light-years across the nebula. The Carina Nebula is home to young, extremely massive stars, including the still enigmatic variable Eta Carinae, a star with well over 100 times the mass of the Sun. Eta Carinae is the brightest star near the image center, just left of the dusty Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324). While Eta Carinae itself maybe on the verge of a supernova explosion, X-ray images indicate that the Great Carina Nebula has been a veritable supernova factory. http://www.pleiades.hu/en/index.php Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131015 #APOD

APOD: All the Colors of the Sun (2013 Oct 02) Credit & Copyright: Nigel Sharp (NSF), FTS, NSO, KPNO, AURA, NSF http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131002.html Explanation: It is still not known why the Sun's light is missing some colors. Shown above are all the visible colors of the Sun, produced by passing the Sun's light through a prism-like device. The above spectrum was created at the McMath-Pierce Solar Observatory and shows, first off, that although our white-appearing Sun emits light of nearly every color, it does indeed appear brightest in yellow-green light. The dark patches in the above spectrum arise from gas at or above the Sun's surface absorbing sunlight emitted below. Since different types of gas absorb different colors of light, it is possible to determine what gasses compose the Sun. Helium, for example, was first discovered in 1870 on a solar spectrum and only later found here on Earth. Today, the majority of spectral absorption lines have been identified - but not all. http://www.noao.edu/noao/scistaff/sharp.html http://www.noao.edu/image_gallery/html/im0600.html Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131002 #APOD
