APOD: Delphinid Meteor Mystery (2013 Jun 15) Image Credit & Copyright: Yuri Beletsky (Las Campanas Observatory, Carnegie Institution) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130615.html Explanation: Over a five hour period last Tuesday morning, exposures captured this tantalizing view of meteor streaks and the Milky Way in dark skies above Las Campanas Observatory in Chile. During that time, astronomers had hoped to see an outburst from the gamma Delphinid meteor shower as Earth swept through the dust trail left by an unknown comet. Named for the shower's radiant point in the constellation Delphinus, a brief but strong outburst was reported in bright, moonlit skies on June 10, 1930. While no strong Delphinid meteor activity was reported since, an outburst was tentatively predicted to occur again in 2013. But even though Tuesday's skies were dark, the overall rate of meteors in this field is low, and only the three lower meteor streaks seem to point back to the shower's estimated radiant. http://www.lco.cl/ http://carnegiescience.edu/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130615 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0615

Superhealthy Breakfast Cookie

APOD: Orion Nebula in Oxygen, Hydrogen, and Sulfur (2013 Jun 04) Image Credit & Copyright: César Blanco González http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130604.html Explanation: Few astronomical sights excite the imagination like the nearby stellar nursery known as the Orion Nebula. The Nebula's glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud. Many of the filamentary structures visible in the above image are actually shock waves - fronts where fast moving material encounters slow moving gas. The Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years and is located about 1500 light years away in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye just below and to the left of the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the popular constellation Orion. The above image shows the nebula in three colors specifically emitted by hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur gas. The whole Orion Nebula cloud complex, which includes the Horsehead Nebula, will slowly disperse over the next 100,000 years. http://www.atlasastronomia.com/astrofotografia/cesar/cesar.html Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130604 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0604
