APOD: Opportunity's Decade on Mars (2014 Jan 25) Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Cornell Univ/Arizona State Univ http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140125.html Explanation: On January 25 (UT) 2004, the Opportunity rover fell to Mars, making today the 10th anniversary of its landing. After more than 3,500 sols (Mars solar days) the golf cart-sized robot from Earth is still actively exploring the Red Planet, though its original mission plan was for three months. This self-portrait was made with Opportunity's panoramic camera earlier this month. The camera's supporting mast has been edited out of the image mosaic but its shadow is visible on the dusty solar panels arrayed across the rover's deck. For comparison, a similar self-portrait from late 2004 is shown in the inset. Having driven some 39 kilometers (24 miles) from its landing site, Opportunity now rests at Solander Point at the rim of Endeavour Crater. http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA17759 http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA07372 http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/ http://athena.cornell.edu/ http://www.mars.asu.edu/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140125 #APOD

APOD: From the Northern to the Southern Cross (2014 Jan 27) Image Credit & Copyright: Nicholas Buer http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140127.html Explanation: There is a road that connects the Northern to the Southern Cross but you have to be at the right place and time to see it. The road, as pictured above, is actually the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy; the right place, in this case, is dark Laguna Cejar in Salar de Atacama of Northern Chile; and the right time was in early October, just after sunset. Many sky wonders were captured then, including the bright Moon, inside the Milky Way arch; Venus, just above the Moon; Saturn and Mercury, just below the Moon; the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds satellite galaxies, on the far left; red airglow near the horizon on the image left; and the lights of small towns at several locations across the horizon. One might guess that composing this 30-image panorama would have been a serene experience, but for that one would have required earplugs to ignore the continued brays of wild donkeys. http://www.nicholasbuer.com/ http://facebook.com/nicholasbuerphotography Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140127 #APOD

APOD: Sunspot Loops in Ultraviolet (2014 Jan 26) Image Credit: TRACE Project, NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140126.html Explanation: It was a quiet day on the Sun. The above image shows, however, that even during off days the Sun's surface is a busy place. Shown in ultraviolet light, the relatively cool dark regions have temperatures of thousands of degrees Celsius. Large sunspot group AR 9169 from the last solar cycle is visible as the bright area near the horizon. The bright glowing gas flowing around the sunspots has a temperature of over one million degrees Celsius. The reason for the high temperatures is unknown but thought to be related to the rapidly changing magnetic field loops that channel solar plasma. Large sunspot group AR 9169 moved across the Sun during 2000 September and decayed in a few weeks. http://trace.lmsal.com/ http://www.nasa.gov/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140126 #APOD

APOD: Jelly Donut Shaped Rock Appears on Mars (2014 Jan 28) Image Credit: Mars Exploration Rover Mission, Cornell, JPL, NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140129.html Explanation: What if a rock that looked like a jelly donut suddenly appeared on Mars? That's just what happened in front of the robotic Opportunity rover currently exploring the red planet. The unexpectedly placed rock, pictured above, was imaged recently by Opportunity after not appearing in other images taken as recently as twelve Martian days (sols) before. Given the intriguing mystery, the leading explanation is somewhat tame -- the rock was recently scattered by one of the rover's tires. Even so, the rock's unusual light tones surrounding a red interior created interest in its composition -- as well as causing it to be nicknamed Jelly Donut. A subsequent chemical analysis showed the rock has twice the abundance of manganese than any other rock yet examined -- an unexpected clue that doesn't yet fit into humanity's understanding of the Martian geologic history. Opportunity, just passing its 10-year anniversary on Mars, continues to explore the Murray Ridge section of the rim of 22-kilometer wide Endeavor Crater. http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA17761 http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/ http://athena.cornell.edu/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140129 #APOD

Spiral Galaxy M83: The Southern Pinwheel Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA), and W. P. Blair (JHU) et al. http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140128.html Explanation: M83 is one of the closest and brightest spiral galaxies on the sky. Visible with binoculars in the constellation of Hydra, majestic spiral arms have prompted its nickname as the Southern Pinwheel. Although discovered 250 years ago, only much later was it appreciated that M83 was not a nearby gas cloud, but a barred spiral galaxy much like our own Milky Way Galaxy. M83, pictured above by the Hubble Space Telescope in a recently released image, is a prominent member of a group of galaxies that includes Centaurus A and NGC 5253, all of which lie about 15 million light years distant. Several bright supernova explosions have been recorded in M83. An intriguing double circumnuclear ring has been discovered at the center of of M83. http://hubblesite.org/news/2014/04 http://heritage.stsci.edu/2014/04/ http://spacetelescope.org/news/heic1403/ http://fuse.pha.jhu.edu/~wpb/ http://heritage.stsci.edu/2014/04/bio/bio_primary.html http://www.projectstardate.org/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140128 #APOD
