IC 4628: The Prawn Nebula

South of Antares, in the tail of the nebula-rich constellation Scorpius, lies emission nebula IC 4628. Nearby hot, massive stars, millions of years young, irradiate the nebula with invisible ultraviolet light, stripping electrons from atoms. The electrons eventually recombine with the atoms to produce the visible nebular glow, dominated by the red emission of hydrogen. At an estimated distance of 6,000 light-years, the region shown is about 250 light-years across, spanning over three full moons on the sky. The nebula is also cataloged as Gum 56 for Australian astronomer Colin Stanley Gum, but seafood-loving astronomers might know this cosmic cloud as the Prawn Nebula. The tantalizing color image is a new astronomical composition using data from the European Southern Observatory’s wide field OmegCAM and amateur images made under dark skies on the Canary Island of Tenerife.

Aaaa I got the stormcalling juggeling momento for Taliith. Im so happy.

She looks happy as well. I like to think she was practicing for months, and only created a few explosion impacts on the ground, before she decided to show her lovely wife Valaste.

Valaste was mildly concerned at first, her wife didnt need new ways to accidently cause explosions, but soon came to enjoy her loudmer spellsword wife’s new party trick. She did ask for a private show version later as well :)

Ancient Oceans on Mars

It is now widely accepted that Mars was once a very wet place. About four billion years ago Mars would have had enough water to cover its entire surface in a liquid layer about 140 metres deep. It is likely that the liquid would have pooled to form an ocean occupying almost half of Mars’s northern hemisphere, and in some regions reaching depths greater than 1.6 kilometres. This artist’s impression shows what the planet may have looked like with its ancient ocean. Imagine: could life have lived in such a place?

The Wonders of the Carina Nebula

“This broad image of the Carina Nebula, a region of massive star formation in the southern skies, was taken in infrared light using the HAWK-I camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Many previously hidden features, scattered across a spectacular celestial landscape of gas, dust and young stars, have emerged.”
