APOD: Light Pillars from a Little Planet (2014 Jan 31) Image Credit & Copyright: Janne Voutilainen http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140131.html Explanation: Eerie pillars of light ring the edges of this snowy little planet. Of course the little planet is planet Earth, shown in a nadir-to-zenith, around-the-horizon, little planet projection. The spherical panoramic image mosaic maps a view from Siilinjärvi in eastern Finland. Flat ice crystals, like those more often found in high, thin clouds, are gently fluttering in very cold air near the surface. The pillars of light appear as their briefly horizontal facets reflect upward directed light from ground sources downward, toward the observer. In fact, the fluttering crystals produce an effect analogous to the shimmering columns of moonlight or sunlight reflected by surface waves across water. http://pallopanoraama.blogspot.fi/2010/11/komeimmat-keinovalopilarit-koskaan.html Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140131 #APOD

APOD: Mars and Orion over Monument Valley (2014 Feb 02) Image Credit & Copyright: Wally Pacholka (Astropics, TWAN) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140202.html Explanation: Welcome to The World At Night. Sharing the night sky seen around the world, this view from Monument Valley, USA includes a picturesque foreground of famous buttes. Buttes are composed of hard rock left behind after water eroded away the surrounding soft rock. The two buttes on the image left are known as the Mittens, while Merrick Butte is on the right. Recorded in 2007 December, planet Mars is at the left of the skyscape, a glowing beacon of orange that is the brightest object in the frame. To the right of Mars lies the constellation of Orion. Betelgeuse is the reddish star near the center and the Belt of Orion and the Orion Nebula are farther right. Finally, the bright blue star Rigel appears above Merrick Butte in this stunning view of The World At Night. http://www.astropics.com/ http://twanight.org/Pacholka Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140202 #APOD #TWAN
