It was so fun that can produce a full solar disk from thousands of spectral lines, especially that we can't buy such wavelength solar filters from the market :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The Horsehead Nebula (also known as Barnard 33) is without doubt one of the most recognized and fascinating objects in the sky. This iconic feature is formed by the sharp outline of a dark dust cloud, with a remarkable likeness to a horse's head, silhouetted against a brightly glowing patch of ionized Hydrogen (IC434) that is being energized by the hard ultraviolet radiation from nearby Sigma Orionis, a quintuplet star system lying just outside the top of the image.

I sought to process this image to show not only the traditional Horsehead silhouette but also the details of the dense dust cloud (Lynds 1630 molecular cloud) from which it emerges.
Visible in the foreground is a large looming shadow being cast by the Horsehead's tower of dust, appearing as a dark fan-shape all across the image down towards the bottom centre-left, intercepted on its left edge by the intricate bright blue reflection nebula NGC2023.
In contrast to the red emission glow, the reflection nebula is caused by light from the nebula's bright blue central stars which is being reflected off the surrounding dust.The brightest member of the central cluster is the B star HD 37903, a very young star with intense ultraviolet radiation that has carved a four light years wide cavity in the dust that we see as the reflection nebula.

Throughout the dark cloud, both in and below the Horsehead, are several small glowing reddish patches. These are the feeble lights from new stars being born in the cloud. Some of these are Herbig-Haro objects; the result of plasma jets ejected from young protostars which collide with the surrounding gas and dust and cause the glowing emission. Inside the bright blue nebula NGC2023 are also several brightly coloured wisps of emission patches, further hints of young stellar objects and the regions' overall complexity and beauty.

It's a shame this won't make APOD as there was another image of it recently.

starsurfer, unless you can reliably read the minds of Drs. Nemiroff and Bonnell, now and into perpetuity, you don't know whether Rolf's lovely image will be shown on APOD or not.

Post by Efrain Morales » Thu Jan 23, 2014 2:11 pm

Super Nova In M82 The Cigar Galaxy on January 23rd 06:23ut. comparing to the image I took on april of last year showing the SN with markers with the latest image. The supernova detected as early as the 15th of january is currently at magnitude +11 to +12 at 12 million light years distance.

Fantastic image, geckzilla! Thanks for processing all that Hubble data and creating stunning images for us!

SN 2014J - type I in M82 (NGC 3034) in Ursa Major.

http://www.irida-observatory.org/Observ ... tions.html

Copyright: [url=mailto://info@irida-observatory.org]Velimir Popov, Emil Ivanov[/url]

According to CBET 3792 this transient has been discovered by Steve J. Fossey on 2014/01/21.810
NGC 3034 (M82)-SN2014J (= PSN J09554214+6940260)
Found in M82 at R.A. = 09h55m42s.14, Decl. = +69°40'26".0 (= NGC 3034)
Located 54" west and 21" south of the center of M82

Following the posting on the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams (CBAT) about a possible Supernova in M82 (TOCP Designation: PSN J09554214+6940260) we performed some follow-up of this object through a 12"RC astrograph + CCD from our remote controlled IRIDA Observatory.
