Great astrophotographies – October 2009
This is time for me to present my selection of the best pictures of the NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD). As always, this month was packed with beautiful images. It was a bit difficult to select just ten.
Today’s picture features the M1: The Crab Nebula from Hubble. “This is the mess that is left when a star explodes. The Crab Nebula, the result of a supernova seen in 1054 AD, is filled with mysterious filaments.”
I am absolutely still amazed at how many splendors can be seen at night. I just hope we may find a way to make our nights darker so more people can see them.
Here is this month’s list :
- M1: The Crab Nebula from Hubble ;
- NGC 7331 and Beyond ;
- Moon and Planets in the Morning ;
- Martian Dust Devil Trails ;
- Nereus Crater on Mars ;
- Bright Nebulae of M33 ;
- Fireball Meteor Over Groningen ;
- Pleiades and Stardust ;
- Stars Over Easter Island ;
- Carina Pillar and Jets.
I hope you like this month’s selection.
