Journey of Comet ISON on 27 October 2013
http://www.justinngphoto.com
Copyright: Justin Ng


A short timelapse video, covering 69 minutes of imaging time from astronomical darkness state to civil twilight state, on 27 October 2013.

From the video you can see the reduced visibility of Comet ISON as the sky was becoming brighter gradually. Moon was also visible with an illumination of about 50%.
The nucleus of Comet ISON is still intact and its current magnitude is about 8. You will also see an image as a result of stacking 46 images together as well as an inverted image in the video. NGC 3428 is also visible in the video near the two brightest stars on the lower left.

Comet ISON made its maiden journey into the inner solar system and it will make its closest approach to the Sun on 28 November 2013. Nobody can tell exactly if it will sizzle or fizzle but if Comet ISON survives its closest encounter with the Sun, it might put on a dazzling show for people living in the Northern Hemisphere throughout the night in December 2013.
Comet ISON will be closest to Earth on 26 December 2013 and it will become dimmer as its distance from the Sun increases. Comets are notoriously unpredictable so let's keep our fingers crossed!

A Halloween week ngc 6992, Eastern Veil. Bicolor using Ha red, 20%Ha+80%OIII Green, OIII Blue. I thought this looked kind of spooky, with the illusion of a ghostly demonic head protruding from the left of the nebula.

NGC 7635 the Bubble nebula in Hubble palette

Copyright: Steve Coates
NGC 7538, the Bubble nebula, is an HII emission nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia around 7100 to 11,000 light years from Earth. The bubble is created by intense radiation and stellar winds from nearby stars. This was collected over several nights this past month from my light polluted skies of central Florida.
Ha 20min subs totaling 4 hours.
OIII 20 min subs totaling 3 hours.
SII 20 min subs totaling 3 hours.

Not for CD-ROM 8000 year old petroglyphs that by day seem quite random, but at night provides a glimpse into a possible connection with the night sky.

The big emision nebula located near Deneb is splitted mainly in two parts resulting in two different nebulae. The well known NGC 7000 and IC 5070.
This is an SHO mosaic made of two panels.

Trick or treat - Auroras

© Thomas Kast, All Rights Reserved
http://www.salamapaja.fi

These auroras danced in the sky just minutes before midnight to Halloween 2013. It was a result of a X-flare unleashed by the sun a few days earlier. This is taken with a wide angle lense, so the upper part of the photo was right above my head.
