Astronomy Images.

I’m a keen amateur astronomer, I have a 127mm aperture 1500mm focal length Maksutov Cassegrain telescope on an EQ3 mount with dual axis tracking. Last year I upgraded my camera from a Samsung instamatic digital camera to a Nikon 3200 DSLR. I also purchased a few extras that would enable me to take prime focus […]

Set the controls for the heart of the sun — skopelosnews

A small charabanc outing, organized by Georgia Patsea at Dolphin of Skopelos Travel, invaded the country home of master baker and astronomer Giorgos Michelis yesterday to watch the Transit of Mercury on his formidable array of telescopes.

Almost super moon — Mike Powell

I think that tonight is officially the “super moon,” but the weather forecasters predict that it will be cloudy. Knowing this, I went out last night (and again this morning) to get some shots of the almost super moon. I learned a couple of things from this experience. First, it’s not too hard to get […]

Are the heavens calling you? — CNS Blog

There’s a whole universe to discover if you just look up: planets, nebulae, star clusters, rare naked-eye comets, even the moon and the sun. Since I was a kid, I’ve explored the sky as much as I could. With my modest six-inch reflector telescope I undertook hours of personal observation as a teenager. I grabbed […]

Scorpius Constellation — snapsbynina

It is currently 12:26 am and I have to be up at 6 tomorrow but I am too excited to not share! I decided to go outside tonight around 11 in hopes that the sky would be clear and got these pictures! After many, MANY tries with different constellation apps, I still couldn’t figure out […]

Night-thinking  — Jade’s Blog!

A few questions: Why does it get dark at 6 pm? Is it because Nicaragua is closer to the equator? Is it dark at 6 year-round? This isn’t because they don’t observe daylight savings, right? Do I just not understand how the sun works? Can an astronomy nerd draw me a diagram, please? Space physics […]

Skywatcher — Atlas

I’m writing this while moving at 130km an hour and even though it’s late my mind’s going 300km an hour. You see I’m a bit of a skywatcher, and my neck bends weird because of it (at least I’m pretty sure) and I like to refer to myself as an astronomer. You see when I […]

Real Astronomy — Astronomy and Light Festival

Well think again with resources like Our Solar Siblings and iTelescope.net, you can access research telescopes across the world […]

Share Your World — A Day In The Life

What was your favorite subject in school? I always enjoyed English, and in High School I loved my Astronomy class. We leaned about the phases of the moon and the stars- I found it fascinating. If you could have a servant come to your house every day for two hours, what would you have them do? […]

Moon Talk — Reflections on Existence

Moon shared with me her wisdom As she twirled her gauzy skirt. She blinked her glowing lashes Saying, “Beware of getting hurt.” For what appears like love Can disappear into the mist. The one who keeps your secrets Is the one who should be kissed. I asked her in my ignorance […]

50 Years of the Astronomy Centre at the University of Sussex — In the Dark

On Saturday (15th October) I was back in Brighton for the first time since I left my job there at the end of July. The occasion was a very nice lunch party to celebrate 50 years of the Astronomy Centre at the University of Sussex, which started properly in 1966. It was a pleasant occasion, […]

“Dance in the Light” — Ed Lehming Photography

“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.” ― C.S. Lewis The light in the forest last week was beautiful and brief. I was […]

on what’s going on with Astronomy — Starguy Speaks

In the past four months, four high profile cases of sexual harassment in astronomy have come to light, prompting such headlines as “Astronomy’s snowballing sexual harassment scandal picks up even more cases”, “Astronomy’s sexual harassment problem gets Congressional attention” and “Astronomers Are Finally Doing Something About Sexual Harassment” and (with a thesis very similar […]

LDS Cosmology and Modern Astronomy: A Beautiful Marriage — A Mirror, a Sword and Shield

The great scientist Carl Sagan wrote, …in some respects, science has far surpassed religion in delivering awe. How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, ‘This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said—grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater […]

Measure the Heavens? – The Faith of Astronomy — Creation Theory

Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord. (Jeremiah 31:37) We start with a simple observation: God has not, and will not, cast off the […]
