CENTAURUS A
https://www.astrobin.com/full/348854/0/

I say not only the image of centaurus a, but of all the image that it encompasses, I challenge the friends to open the image in high difficulty by the link: https://www.astrobin.com/full/348854/0/ LA VOCE YOU CAN ENHANCE THE IMAGE IN MAX RESOLUTION, and try to locate galaxies in the photo. One tip, there are almost 30 galaxies in the image.

Forged in a collision of two normal galaxies, the fantastic blend of Centaurus A blue star clusters, pink star-forming regions and towering dark dust bands are seen here in remarkable detail. Near the center of the galaxy, remains of cosmic debris is constantly consumed by a central black hole with a billion times the mass of the Sun. As in other active galaxies, this process generates radio energy, X-rays and gamma rays radiated by Centaurus THE.

OMEGA CENTAURI
https://www.astrobin.com/full/348713/0/ ... do_Menezes

OMEGA CENTAURI

A globular cluster unlike any other, globular cluster more observed, presents in average 10x more massive than the other globular agglomerates.

Located in the constellation Centaurus, and can be seen with the naked eye in the southern hemisphere, in places of low light pollution.

It is so mysterious, that recent research based on observations using the NASA Hubble Space Telescope and the Gemini Observatory, indicated that there is a black hole at its center. This suggests that the Omega Centauri may actually be a dwarf galaxy that has been stripped of its outer stars and not of a globular cluster.

The Heart of the Moon

Post by balliamo1 » Wed May 30, 2018 5:34 pm

Our Moon is a common astronomical object and we might think we know everything of it.
In some occasions although, when sun illuminates it radently, specific lunar region details are reveiled from a different point of view.
In this picture, taken with a 14" reflector telescope, the region between the Appennin mounts and the Archimedes crater region creates the effect of an heart being sketched on the Moon!
Despite the regular monthly apperance on our sky, our satellite still offers unknown views for both romantic lovers as well for celestial amatours observers.

The PETAVIUS crater is an exceptional formation. Large crater of complex morphology and fractured floor, located near the south border of the Mare FECUNDITATIS and near the southeast limb of the Moon. Its wide inner walls have a rugged and worn appearance, are steep, irregular and structured on terraces

M16 Pillars of Creation – Infrared Light - Another point of view

Although NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken many breathtaking images of the universe, one snapshot stands out from the rest: the iconic view of the so-called "Pillars of Creation." The jaw-dropping photo, taken in 1995, revealed never-before-seen details of three giant columns of cold gas bathed in the scorching ultraviolet light from a cluster of young, massive stars in a small region of the Eagle Nebula, or M16.

Though such butte-like features are common in star-forming regions, the M16 structures are by far the most photogenic and evocative. The Hubble image is so popular that it has appeared in movies and television shows, on tee-shirts and pillows, and even on a postage stamp. And now, in celebration of its 25th anniversary, Hubble has revisited the famous pillars, providing astronomers with a sharper and wider view, shown in the right-hand image. For comparison, the original 1995 Hubble image of the gaseous towers appears in the left-hand view. Streamers of gas can be seen bleeding off pillars as the intense radiation heats and evaporates it into space. Stars are being born deep inside the pillars.

Observing in infrared light, Hubble pierced through the obscuring gas and dust of M16’s Pillars of Creation. This ethereal image reveals the young stars that are being formed within the pillars. It also uncovers a myriad of background stars that were hidden at visible wavelengths.
