The Tadpoles of IC 410 : This telescopic close-up shows off the otherwise faint emission nebula IC 410. It also features two remarkable inhabitants of the cosmic pond of gas and dust below and right of center, the tadpoles of IC 410. Partly obscured by foreground dust, the nebula itself surrounds NGC 1893, a young galactic cluster of stars. Formed in the interstellar cloud a mere 4 million years ago, the intensely hot, bright cluster stars energize the glowing gas. Composed of denser cooler gas and dust, the tadpoles are around 10 light-years long and are likely sites of ongoing star formation. Sculpted by winds and radiation from the cluster stars, their heads are outlined by bright ridges of ionized gas while their tails trail away from the clusters central region. IC 410 lies some 10,000 light-years away, toward the nebula-rich constellation Auriga. via NASA

ペルセウス座に続いて昇るすばる,ヒアデス,ぎょしゃ座 秋の進行

Simply gorgeous, eastern sky in September. Over cirrus clouds, Perseus followed by the ice-blue tiny cluster of Pleiades (center right), V-shaped Hyades of Taurus with orange Aldebaran (bottom right) , and the large pentagon of Auriga with magnificently bright Capella at its upper corner (lower left).

a wishing well that all men call the world: earth against the stars, photographed by soho and dscovr, 18th november 2015.

a composite of real imagery: earth is photographed by dscover’s epic instrument (11 times over 22 hours), but epic exposures are too short to pick up stars; instead, i have used a starfield synthesized from soho images earlier in the year when the sun was moving through taurus and auriga, where the earth is now. the framing of the images and the apparent motion of the stars are also based on soho images. 

the numerous inaccuracies and creative slights of hand are mine.

( i balance on a wishing well
that all men call the world
we are so small between the stars
so large against the sky
and lost among the subway crowds
i try to catch your eye -

Riding high in the constellation of Auriga, beautiful, blue vdB 31 is the 31st object in Sidney van den Bergh’s 1966 catalog of reflection nebulae. It shares this well-composed celestial still life with dark, obscuring clouds recorded in Edward E. Barnard’s 1919 catalog of dark markings in the sky. All are interstellar dust clouds, blocking the light from background stars in the case of Barnard's dark nebulae. For vdB 31, the dust preferentially reflects the bluish starlight from embedded, hot, variable star AB Aurigae. Exploring the environs of AB Aurigaewith the Hubble Space Telescope has revealed the several million year young star is itself surrounded by flattened dusty disk with evidence for the ongoing formation of aplanetary system. AB Aurigae is about 470 light-years away. At that distance this cosmic canvas would span about four light-years.

You have such amazing art! aaadfsgsv Anywho for my question, what gave you inspiration to create acapella? And how did he get to earth?

gOSH Thank you so much!! I really appreciate it ^^ 
oOO these are good questions umm.. With Novacapella design I was obviously influenced by space since I adORE anything to do with space and stars.. I had also seen the concept floating around on tumblr of space and elemental entities and I wanted to give it a go myself..

(I made a typo on the watermark it should be gaylart- Mess. tumblr aaa)

The lill space beans name is also made up of two space related names: Nova, which is a star that shines bright and returns to it’s original state in a few months or so, and Cappella which is the brightest star in the constellation of Auriga, I believe. I couldn’t decide between them so a friend suggested I push the two together in a spacy amalgamation and I liked it, ergo: Novacapella!

As for how Novacapella actually got to Earth… Well… As the shooting star indicates in the picture above…

It wasn’t graceful, to say the least…

They had been observing the earth grow for a while, not really understanding the reasons for why it and the creatures changed so much, but finding fascination in how quickly it all happened. After watching for a long time they got sick of by-standing and, for lack of a better term, flung themselves down onto the planet.
They later stole some clothes and they’ve been causing trouble Experiencing the planet in it’s glory ever since.

The first time you started to realize the strange combination of freckles on your ribs you were 12. There they were 4 freckles on your ribs and you could’ve swear that they were there a few months ago.

You thought that it was due to the long summer days you spent on the beach as you usually would end up with your shoulders cover up in freckles by the end of it.  But that thought died when you were 16 and more freckles appeared right next to the previous ones and this time they seemed to draw something. Almost as it they were starts, but this was impossible!

From that exact moment you became quite paranoid about that portion of skin, everyday checking to see if there were more freckles. With the paranoia came the fear, the fear of something happening to you, the fear of have some serious problem of health.

It’s easy to get lost following intricate filaments in this detailed image of faint supernova remnant Simeis 147. Also cataloged as Sharpless 2-240 it goes by the popular nickname, the Spaghetti Nebula. Seen towardthe boundary of the constellations Taurus and Auriga, it covers nearly 3 degrees or 6 full moons on the sky. That’s about 150 light-years at the stellar debris cloud’s estimated distance of 3,000 light-years. This composite includes image data taken through narrow-band filters, enhancing the reddish emission from ionized hydrogen atoms to trace the shocked, glowing gas. The supernova remnant has an estimated age of about 40,000 years, meaning light from the massive stellar explosion first reached Earth 40,000 years ago. But the expanding remnant is not the only aftermath. The cosmic catastrophealso left behind a spinning neutron star or pulsar, all that remains of the original star’s core.

Open Cluster M37

This is the brightest among the three Messier Open Clusters in the constellation Auriga. It represents a well developed cluster of several hundred stars with quite a few already in the state of Red Giants. The age is about 300 Mio years. It is in a distance of 4700 LY and 25 LY extended.

The image was taken at the observatory of IAS at Hakos Farm in Namibia.

Some stars shine a little brighter than others.

                                                     Capella

This is a 45 second exposure I took with my telescope, I’ve been going through a phase recently of trying to capture a list of the top ten brightest stars in our night sky.
Capella is a red giant star in the constellation auriga 46 light years away.
It is the fourth brightest star in our night sky, 13 times larger than our own sun and 100 times brighter!
