Digital photoshop composite showing distinct phases of the eclipse next to each other in Hanover. . . A partial solar eclipse is seen in Hanover, Pennsylvania, as it peaks on Monday, August 21, 2017. From Hanover, the moon obscured about 78% of the sun at its peak. #canonusa #1dxmarkii #solareclipse #eclipse #eclipse2017 #sun #pennsylvania #hanoverpa #NYTEclipseWatch #astrophotography #spacedotcom #spacephotography #igers #greatamericaneclipse #visitpa #universetoday #astro_photography #astronomia #natgeospace #rsa_sky #solarsystem #nasa #instaspace #weather #agameoftones #astronomy #usaprimeshot @yourtake @usatoday @pennlive @spacedotcom @justinweather @visit_pa

Un huevo frito espacial?

Un huevo frito espacial? NGC 7742. : Esto podra asemejarse a un huevo frito, pero es realmente mucho ms grande. De hecho, es una galaxia rodeada de estrellas color azul formando regiones y brazos espirales dbilmente visibles, el centro de la yema de color amarillo de este frente de la galaxia espiral NGC 7742, es de unos 3.000 aos luz. Y est a Unos 72 millones aos luz de distancia en la constelacin Pegaso . Por lo que se sabe NGC 7742 es una galaxia Seyfert - un tipo de galaxia espiral activa con un centro o ncleo que es muy brillante en longitudes de onda visibles. En todo el espectro, el enorme brillo de Seyferts puede cambiar en periodos de pocos das a meses y en galaxias como NGC 7742 se sospecha que albergan enormes agujeros negros en sus ncleos. Esta imagen de color hermoso es cortesa del Telescopio Espacial Hubble. . #galaxia #discovery #creation #amazing #astronomy #beauty #chandra #nasabeyond #constellation #creation #galaxy #hubble #hubbletelescope #interstellar #nature #nasa #cosmos #hubblehangout #space #universe #naturelovers #cosmology #science #hst

"It's best not to stare a

"It's best not to stare at the sun during an eclipse." - Jeff Goldblum . The first major total solar eclipse over North America since 1979 takes place next Monday, August 21st! Come down to the park to experience this one of a kind event from the park lawn. Solar filters and glasses will be provided for those who join along with several other tools to view an eclipse safely. If you are unable to join, stop by the park visitor center anytime between now and then to pick up a complimentary "pinhole" solar viewing card and information concerning peak view times in Rome, NY. . We hope to see you at the eclipse party...( -RPR) . #moon #lunar #solareclipse @nationalparkmagazine #nationalparkgeek @nationalpark #nationalparkservice #Nationalparkmagazine @GoParks #FindYourPark #encuentratuparque #trailsnotscales #fatgirlshiking #she_explores #modernhikers #latinosforparks #outdoorwomen #brownpeoplecamping #roamingwomen #outdoorwomen #sheexplores #womenwhoexplore #unlikelyhikers #walking #adventure_some_women #girlshikingclub #modernhiker #blackoutdoors peoplewhoexplore @womenofcolorinnature #solarsystem #womenwhohike #peoplewhohike #eclipse #astronomy

Maggie Craig, a librarian

Maggie Craig, a librarian at the Hamilton Grange Branch branch of the NYPL, sent us this shot of books from a display she had setup to educate kids about the eclipse. This shot includes artwork from the kids, done at the library. A few eclipse glasses were given to the children and their families. #EclipseGlasses #SolarEclipse2017 #Eclipse2017 #eclipse #Manhattan #UnlimitedManhattan #artwork #solar #SolarAstronomy #astronomers #art #kids #SunGazing #UniverseToday #universe #children #NYC #What_I_Saw_In_NY #PicturesOfNewYork #pictureNYC #NYCVibes #NYCityWorld #NewYorkers #IG_NYCity #IG_NewYorkCity #NewYork_IG #NewYork_Instagram #library #astronomy #NYPL

#Repost @nasa After launching on Monday from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Dragon has journeyed to the International Space Station (@iss). It arrives to the space station Wednesday, Aug. 16. Astronaut Jack Fischer (@astro2fish) shared this image of the robotic arm on space station saying "The arm is out and ready to capture a @SpaceX Dragon by the tail. Cant wait to get to work on 2 tons of science!" The flight will deliver investigations and instruments that study cosmic ray particles, protein crystal growth, stem cell-mediated recellularization and a nanosateliite technology demonstration. The vehicle also will deliver supplies and equipment to crew members living aboard the station. In all, 6,400 pounds of experiments and supplies will arrive when Astronauts Jack Fischer of NASA and Paolo Nespoli of ESA (European Space Agency - @europeanspaceagency) use the stations robotic arm to capture Dragon on Wednesday morning.

An extract on #astronomy

Astronomy is the oldest of the natural sciences. The early civilizations in recorded history, such as the Babylonians, Greeks, Indians, Egyptians, Nubians, Iranians, Chinese, and Maya performed methodical observations of the night sky. Historically, astronomy has included disciplines as diverse as astrometry, celestial navigation, observational astronomy and the making of calendars, but professional astronomy is now often considered to be synonymous with astrophysics. During the 20th century, the field of professional astronomy split into observational and theoretical branches. Observational astronomy is focused on acquiring data from observations of astronomical objects, which is then analyzed using basic principles of physics. Theoretical astronomy is oriented toward the development of computer or analytical models to describe astronomical objects and phenomena. The two fields complement each other, with theoretical astronomy seeking to explain the observational results and observations being used to confirm theoretical results. Astronomy is one of the few sciences where amateurs can still play an active role, especially in the discovery and observation of transient phenomena. Amateur astronomers have made and contributed to many important astronomical discoveries, such as finding new comets.

Astronomy (from the Greek from astron, "star" and - -nomia from nomos, "law" or "culture") means "law of the stars" (or "culture of the stars" depending on the translation). Astronomy should not be confused with astrology, the belief system which claims that human affairs are correlated with the positions of celestial objects. Although the two fields share a common origin, they are now entirely distinct.

Generally, either the term "astronomy" or "astrophysics" may be used to refer to this subject. Based on strict dictionary definitions, "astronomy" refers to "the study of objects and matter outside the Earth's atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties" and "astrophysics" refers to the branch of astronomy dealing with "the behavior, physical properties, and dynamic processes of celestial objects and phenomena". In some cases, as in the introduction of the introductory textbook The Physical Universe by Frank Shu, "astronomy" may be used to describe the qualitative study of the subject, whereas "astrophysics" is used to describe the physics-oriented version of the subject. However, since most modern astronomical research deals with subjects related to physics, modern astronomy could actually be called astrophysics. Few fields, such as astrometry, are purely astronomy rather than also astrophysics. Various departments in which scientists carry out research on this subject may use "astronomy" and "astrophysics," partly depending on whether the department is historically affiliated with a physics department, and many professional astronomers have physics rather than astronomy degrees. Some titles of the leading scientific journals in this field includeThe Astronomical Journal, The Astrophysical Journal and Astronomy and Astrophysics.
