Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Milky Way Dawn

Explanation: As dawn broke on March 27, the center of the Milky Way Galaxy stood almost directly above the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory. In the dry, clear sky of Chile’s Atacama desert, our galaxy’s dusty central bulge is flanked by Paranal’s four 8 meter Very Large Telescope units in this astronomical fisheye view. Along the top, Venus is close to the eastern horizon. The brilliant morning star shines very near a waning crescent Moon just at the edge of one of the telescope structures. Despite the bright pairing in the east, the Milky Way dominates the scene though. Cut by dust lanes and charged with clouds of stars and glowing nebulae, the center of our galaxy sprawls across the darker zenith even as the deep blue sky grows brighter and buildings still glint in moonlight.

THE SPHINX –A HAPPY ARTICLE

Sphinx Main
The Editor:   Why the happy article, Lois ?

Seagram’s Cat:  I’m tired of the sleazy political stuff.    Be happy, like the Islamic people in Iran.  GET AS DRUNK AS A SECRET SERVICE AGENT,  PASS OUT IN THE HOTEL HALLWAY.

Bacardi Cat:   Have a few, and look at how some of our loyal readers live.

Tequila Cat:  You won’t have to worry about the city, traffic, muggings, killings, or even obnoxious neighbors.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Stripping ESO 137-001
Image Credit: NASA, ESA, CXC

Explanation: Spiral galaxy ESO 137-001 hurtles through massive galaxy cluster Abell 3627 some 220 million light years away. The distant galaxy is seen in this colorful Hubble/Chandra composite image through a foreground of the Milky Way’s stars toward the southern constellation Triangulum Australe. As the spiral speeds along at nearly 7 million kilometers per hour, its gas and dust is stripped away when ram pressure with the cluster’s own hot, tenuous intracluster medium overcomes the galaxy’s gravity. Evident in Hubble’s near visible light data, bright star clusters have formed in the stripped material along the short, trailing blue streaks. Chandra’s X-ray data shows off the enormous extent of the heated, stripped gas as diffuse, darker blue trails stretching over 400,000 light-years toward the bottom right. The significant loss of dust and gas will make new star formation difficult for this galaxy. A yellowish elliptical galaxy, lacking in star forming dust and gas, is just to the right of ESO 137-001 in the frame.
