M33: Triangulum Galaxy : The small, northern constellation Triangulum harbors this magnificent face-on spiral galaxy, M33. Its popular names include the Pinwheel Galaxy or just the Triangulum Galaxy. M33 is over 50,000 light-years in diameter, third largest in the Local Group of galaxies after the Andromeda Galaxy , and our own Milky Way. About 3 million light-years from the Milky Way, M33 is itself thought to be a satellite of the Andromeda Galaxy and astronomers in these two galaxies would likely have spectacular views of each others grand spiral star systems. As for the view from planet Earth, this sharp composite image nicely shows off M33s blue star clusters and pinkish star forming regions along the galaxys loosely wound spiral arms. In fact, the cavernous NGC 604 is the brightest star forming region, seen here at about the 1 o'clock position from the galaxy center. Like M31, M33s population of well-measured variable stars have helped make this nearby spiral a cosmic yardstick for establishing the distance scale of the Universe. via NASA


I’d leave it open.

based on this post by @fistatfirstklance + yours truly. also @wittyy-name asked me to tag her in this (haha im still screaming) so here we go

It starts as a one time thing.

Pidge had looked down one day, Lance’s older brother instinct had kicked in, and he’d ended up spending twenty minutes trying to string a pretty green stone he’d picked up on a piece of string. Any normal person would’ve just given it to Pidge directly, but Lance thought it’d be more fun to hide it somewhere and wait for Pidge to find it. She’d walked out of Green’s hangar the next morning with the stone around her neck and a smile on her face, and well. It spiraled from there.

but can we talk about how good actors are Tarjei and Henrik? they’re so good that even that I don’t speak their lenguaje I knew something was wrong just to see Isak face when Even started spiraling and I knew he was spiraling just for the way he started talking and laughing. because I have seen that kind of behavior in real life and he just flawlessly played it.

and I’m shaking and I’m crying and it’s so worth it because this kind of stories deserves to be shared and deserves this amazing actors.

NGC 6902 / NGC 6902B / IC 4946 - Galaxy Group in Sagittarius

In the far south-eastern corner of Sagittarius, a constellation otherwise known for its spectacular highlights near the crowded Milky Way centre, lies the very rarely imaged galaxy NGC 6902 and a couple of its neighbours. Despite its beautiful and elegant appearance there is very little information about this galaxy to be found anywhere.

It contains a bright central ring and possibly also an elusive inner bar. The spiral arms are quite faint despite almost 17 hours of exposure, which is indicative of a rather weak population of O type stars. The arms also have a knotted appearance, perhaps due to the presence of brighter HII regions located within them.

A number of other galaxies can be seen scattered across the field of view, including the smaller face-on spiral NGC 6902B to the upper left. At the top of the frame lies edge-on galaxy IC 4649 with some traces of obscuring dust and a hint of a bar structure surrounding its core.

And far in the background countless distant galaxy groupings can be seen as small fuzzy yellowish dots throughout the image.

“I have been you, you will be I”

Had a lot of fun with this one. Making silicone old age pieces next week so thought I’d refresh myself with some plain ol’ makeup. Clothes are all painted on too. For best viewing, cover each side then view a a whole.

Send me a message if you are interested in seeing this as a Youtube tutorial, as I’m not sure what the level of interest is for this sort of thing. Feel free to subscribe if my looks tickle your fancy. :)

Hope you’re all having a lovely week x

please send me vld requests! 


Okay, so those Nendo stickers to make faces on the blank face plates right? So I’m that maniac who needs to know every possible combination and not just the suggested faces. (The colored lines separate the intended expressions from the variations.)

1. We know generally the eyes/eyebrows and mouths are two separate pieces. For the more complex ones like Ichi’s whiskers and Jyushi’s spit, I have no idea how many separate pieces the stickers will be in, so I just guessed yo. (Assuming the spiral face is one piece. Wouldn’t make sense not to be.)

2. Obv if you buy more than one Nendo that drastically changes how many combinations you can make. This is just for each boy’s individual stickers since they take their minute facial differences into account.

3. Idk why the skin tones and sizes seem to differ. The stickers should be clear so skin color shouldn’t be an issue.

4. The images are technically prototypes I think? So the final stickers may differ and render this moot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

P.S. Sorry if these look askew/wonky. This is just a general idea; it’ll probably look different when actually spaced on the face since these are 2D renderings of 3D objects.

The Owl Nebula in Ursa Major

A planetary nebula about 6000 years old formed by the 16th magnitude central star shown here between the “eyes” of the Owl. Numerous distant galaxies can be seen in the image, including an obvious edge-on spiral to the left of M97 and a near face-on spiral to the right at a 4 o'clock position.
