TNGC 6334 (also known as the Cat's Paw Nebula, Bear Claw Nebula, or Gum 64)


NGC 6334 is a large star-forming region, covering an area in the night sky slightly larger than the full moon. It is one of the most active star nurseries producing massive stars in the Milky Way.

Located toward the constellation Scorpio, about 5,500 light years away and an estimated 50 light years in length.

The big bright cloud has earned the nickname cat paw because it looks like a gigantic cat footprint because of the three bubbles in the image that resemble the pads of its paws.

RIGIL KENTAURUS (ALPHA CENTAURI)

Alpha Centauri (α Centauri, α Cen), also known as Rigil Kentaurus, is the closest star system to the Solar System, at a distance of 4.37 light years (1.34 parsecs) from the Sun.

Alpha Centauri is not exactly a star but a star system.
One of the three stars in the system, the smallest, is called Proxima Centauri.
- and that's because it's the closest star to Earth!
Next Centauri is the closest star to our Solar System and is at a distance of about 4.3 light years.

A wonderful display of nacreous clouds was visible this evening from Oslo.
Nacreous clouds, sometimes called mother-of-pearl clouds, are rare but once seen are never forgotten. They are mostly visible within two hours after sunset or before dawn when they blaze unbelievably bright with vivid and slowly shifting iridescent colours. They are filmy sheets slowly curling and uncurling, stretching and contracting in the semi-dark sky. Compared with dark scudding low altitude clouds, nacreous clouds stand majestically in almost the same place - an indicator of their great height.
They need the very frigid regions of the lower stratosphere some 15 - 25 km high and well above tropospheric clouds. They are so bright after sunset and before dawn because at those heights they are still sunlit.
They are seen mostly during winter at higher latitudes. Sometimes, however, they occur as far south as England.

NGC 1499 - California in colors


A known nebula but nevertheless rather difficult to photograph, all in nuances, volumes, and "blur / sharp" effect.

Located in the constellation of Perseus, 70 light years long and +/- 1500 light years away from us, it is a very beautiful veil of interstellar gas which emits light in the near infrared. This large "cloud" is illuminated (or in gravitational interaction) by / with the blue star Menkib, in the top center of the image, and "above" the nebula.

Picture processing was very sensitive to treat. It may be possible to give it a lot of different shades and gradations, the whole thing is to remain consistent with the original colors.

Here, I wanted to emphasize its richness of nuances, especially on the "lower part" which has more yellow hues, rather than staying on a gradient of red and magenta only. The clouds around the nebulae are also present.

1st ever HaRGB image I was able to take, at the end of 2019.

Baader Ha 7nm 2" and Astronomik CLS 2" filters

In the middle of the photo, the red supergiant star, Betelgeuse, the second brightest star in the constellation Orion, just now in December 2019 has declined dramatically for two months, calling the attention of astronomers and fans who they debated and speculate if it could be the next supernova.

The Grus Quartet (Galaxy) (NGC 7552, 7582, 7590, 7599)

Located in the Grus Constellation, are all 4 spiral galaxies.

Further up we have NGC 7552, the smallest of the three below is ngc 7590, with its mate next to ngc 7599. The most central and most studied of them is NGC 7582.

NGC 7582 is a type 2 Seyfert galaxy, such a classification is due to the fact that the galaxy has an extremely bright supermassive central black hole very similar to a quasar (most energetic objects in the universe). The black hole of NGC7582 is about 10 million times the mass of our sun.
