Beautiful butterfly! X PN M2-9 Twin Jet Nebula X Hubble Space Telescope
Gorgeous New Hubble Image Of Cosmic Butterfly Wings With so many bewilderingly beautiful examples of these cosmic objects taken over the years, it’s difficult to pick a favorite planetary nebula. But of these stunning scenes, Minkowski's Butterfly has always evoked a sense of awe in me. Never failing, here I am once again hypnotically staring into my…
Had a wonderful time meeting Astra and the crew at Gingin Observatory tonight. We saw fantastic globule star clusters, moon close-ups and caught miss Saturn herself with the iPhone! Can't wait to get involved with their Cosmic Landscape Photographic Group 😄🔭✨🌠⭐️🌙
Well it's 2:30am here in Perth, Australia, so I'm going to bed. Unfortunately there is a very thick orange cloud covering the region tonight. Fingers crossed for a possible glimpse of the Perseid Meteor Shower tomorrow night.
I'd be very interested to hear if any one else from around the world gets an eyeful! Let me know! Keep your eyes to the sky!
The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks tonight. Look up and enjoy! More info:

Explanation: Ridges of glowing interstellar gas and dark dust clouds inhabit the turbulent, cosmic depths of the Lagoon Nebula. Also known as M8, The bright star forming region is about 5,000 light-years distant. But it still makes for a popular stop on telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius, toward the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Dominated by the telltale red emission of ionized hydrogen atoms recombining with stripped electrons, this stunning, deep view of the Lagoon's central reaches is about 40 light-years across. Near the center of the frame, the bright hourglass shape is gas ionized and sculpted by energetic radiation and extreme stellar winds from a massive young star.

Also sharing these amazing photos taken by NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly who is currently spending a year orbiting our space rock onboard the International Space Station! What a job!
The Milky Way Over Yellowstone is Impossibly Beautiful These photographs of Yellowstone National Park by Dave Lane are so gorgeous it’s difficult to believe they’re from real life.
We love the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the stunning images produced (which are invisible to the human eye). Look how much the Supernova remnant Cassiopia A has changed over the years!
It has been wonderful getting to know the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A over the years! Here is the info from my latest observation of this old friend: http://chandra.si.edu/photo/2013/casa/

Spent the weekend down south in Busselton/Margret River, less light pollution but a lot of cloud cover. Caught a s**t glimpse via iPhone of our waxing gibbous moon. Can't wait to start camping with scope in tow as the Australian nights start to warm up.
WOW! Happy Birthday Chandra X-ray Observatory! Love your work!
This is my new Canon Australia EOS 750D DSLR WiFi camera with LCD touch screen that, with Celestron Telescopes T-Ring and T-Adapter inserts directly into the eyepiece of my C10-NGT computerised telescope. It can also be operated from my iPhone 6 Plus! Can't wait to get outside!

Five months after its launch, the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) mission has successfully journeyed to the region of space where Sun and Earth gravitational attraction offset each other. From the vantage point of L1, DSCOVR's EPIC camera has captured its first full-globe view of Earth, and it's well, EPIC!!!
Dear Facebook Universe,
At the request of the White House, I offer reflections on the attached image of our home, released today, July 20, 2015, forty-six years to the day after the first bootprints were left on the Moon.
Earth. Not mounted on a stand, with color-coded state and national boundaries, as schoolroom globes are prone to display. Instead, we see our world as only a cosmic perspective can provide: Blue Oceans -- Dry Land -- White Clouds -- Polar Ice. A Sun-lit planet, teeming with life, framed in darkness.
In 1972, when NASA’s Apollo 17 astronauts first captured an entire hemisphere of our planet, we were treated to such a view. The Blue Marble, it was called. The Space Program’s unprecedented images of Earth compelled us all to think deeply about our dependence on nature and the fate of our civilization.
Of course, at the time, we had other distractions. Between 1968 and 1972, the United States would experience some of its most turbulent years in memory, simultaneously enduring a hot war in Southeast Asia, a Cold War with the Soviet Union, the Civil Rights Movement, campus unrest, and assassinations. Yet that’s precisely when we voyaged to the Moon, paused, looked back, and discovered Earth for the first time.
The year 1970 would celebrate the first Earth Day. In that same year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) were formed with strong bipartisan support. In 1972, the pesticide DDT was banned and the Clean Water Act was passed. And one year later, the Endangered Species Act would be enacted, the catalytic converter would be introduced, and unleaded automotive emission standards would be set. A stunning admission that we’re all in this together, with a common future on a shared planet.
Regrettably, we still live in a turbulent world. But we now have at our disposal, not simply a photograph of our home to reflect upon, but continual data of our rotating planet, captured 13 times per day, by the robotic Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), a specially designed space camera & telescope, launched and positioned a million miles from Earth.
We will now be able to measure and track Sun-induced space weather as well as global climactic trends in ozone levels, aerosols, vegetation, volcanic ash, and Earth reflectivity, all in high resolution; just the kind of data our civilization needs to make informed cultural, political, and scientific decisions that affect our future.
Occasions such as this offer renewed confidence that we may ultimately become responsible shepherds of our own fate, and the fate of that fragile home we call Earth.

This is my Celestron C10-NGT computerised 10" Newtonian reflector telescope! She's huge (as you can see, I don't need to extend the tripod) and heavy (100 lbs). The largest Newtonian in her class. Can't wait to get her aligned and tracking! 40,000+ objects in her database. Here's hoping for clear Southern sky's soon!

3,500m icy peaks of Pluto: NASA reveals striking images of dwarf planet (PHOTOS) NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has sent back to Earth the amazing and detailed photos of Pluto and its satellite Charon for the first time. They turned out to be far from dull balls of ice, with high mountains and deep canyons.
This month NASA 360 celebrated The Hubble Space Telescope's 25th Birthday! Watch this beautiful clip explaining how much the orbiting scope has changed the way we see and understand The Universe. Can't wait to see what the 100 times more powerful NASA Webb Telescope will show us next! Launching in 2018.

Hello satellite friends of our solar system! We love you too!
The not-planets Now that I have a reasonable-resolution global color view of Pluto, I can drop it into one of my trademark scale image montages, to show you how it fits in with the rest of the similar-sized worlds in the solar system: the major moons and the biggest asteroids.
Everyone thinks the light patch on Pluto looks like a heart. I say it's totally a squid!
4, 3, 2, 1! Yay! 'Merica!
Thank you NASA! Pluto
The last image that New Horizons took of Pluto before its big flyby was just released by NASA. Spectacular! And well worth the ~10 year wait.
We will now have visited every single planet (and a dwarf-planet that was a planet, sorry Pluto) in our Solar System! Congratulations America and the New Horizons team!
