different-filter

yo pls let me draw u

(if everyone ignores this i will cry)

ok so recently i got my drawing muse back n this is v v v important to me because it was absent for like years tbh (including during my art gcse smh :(( ) so i need more inspiration and things or people to draw

so basically if u wanna be nice and dont mind me drawing u i would rlly appreciate this:

  • u DO NOT have to be following me!
  • reblog this post (to spread the love n the word)
  • send me a link to ur chosen selfie/photo of urself or link me to ur instagram or whatever tbh ***
  • and that’s it

*** it’d be rlly great if the pic was decent quality, as in: not too blurry or too dark, and without like 10 different filters slapped on top of it u know

ALSO IMPORTANT IF UR CONSIDERING THIS:

Turquoise-tinted plumes in the Large Magellanic Cloud

The brightly glowing plumes seen in this image are reminiscent of an underwater scene, with turquoise-tinted currents and nebulous strands reaching out into the surroundings.

However, this is no ocean. This image actually shows part of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small nearby galaxy that orbits our galaxy, the Milky Way, and appears as a blurred blob in our skies. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has peeked many times into this galaxy, releasing stunning images of the whirling clouds of gas and sparkling stars (opo9944a, heic1301, potw1408a).

This image shows part of the Tarantula Nebula’s outskirts. This famously beautiful nebula, located within the LMC, is a frequent target for Hubble (heic1206, heic1402).

In most images of the LMC the colour is completely different to that seen here. This is because, in this new image, a different set of filters was used. The customary R filter, which selects the red light, was replaced by a filter letting through the near-infrared light. In traditional images, the hydrogen gas appears pink because it shines most brightly in the red. Here however, other less prominent emission lines dominate in the blue and green filters.

This data is part of the Archival Pure Parallel Project (APPP), a project that gathered together and processed over 1000 images taken using Hubble’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, obtained in parallel with other Hubble instruments. Much of the data in the project could be used to study a wide range of astronomical topics, including gravitational lensing and cosmic shear, exploring distant star-forming galaxies, supplementing observations in other wavelength ranges with optical data, and examining star populations from stellar heavyweights all the way down to solar-mass stars.

A version of this image was entered into the Hubble’s Hidden Treasures image processing competition by contestant Josh Barrington.
