The planet has an Earth Similarity Index of 0.81, one of the highest Earth Similarity Indices for any known extrasolar planet.[3] It is in its star's habitable zone. To date, it is the second closest known potentially habitable exoplanet to Earth.[2] The closest potentially habitable exoplanet is Kapteyn b, at 13 light years distant.   Gliese 832 c (also known as Gl 832 c or GJ 832 c) is an extrasolar planet located approximately 16 light-years away in the constellation of Grus

Zwicky-18 was once thought to be a very young galaxy, only 500 million years old. But indeed it is much older. In October 2007 some faint, old stars had been discovered there with the Hubble telescope. Although a relative short time ago there was a major starburst, which led to the observed high number of bright, young stars.  Constellation: Ursa Major Age: 10 billion years Distance: 59 million light-years Visual magnitude: 16 Number of Stars: 800 million Diameter: 3 000 light-years Type…

M 94 is a small, active spiral galaxy. The speed of rotation of the stars around the galactic center of M 94 strongly decreases, when going further outside. This leads to the conclusion, that dark matter is lacking here nearly completely. Dark matter is what allows most other galaxies a faster rotation.  Constellation: Canes Venatici Distance: 16 million light-years Visual magnitude: 9.0 Diameter: 30 000 light-years Type: Sb D

February 01 2017 at 03:16PM This beautiful pair of interacting #galaxies consists of NGC 5754 the large spiral on the top and NGC 5752 the smaller companion in the bottom left corner of the image. NGC 5754's internal structure has hardly been disturbed by the interaction. The outer structure does exhibit tidal features as does the symmetry of the inner spiral pattern and the kinked arms just beyond its inner ring. In contrast NGC 5752 has undergone a starburst episode with a rich population…

This Lupus 3 molecular cloud located at the border of Scorpius and Lupus constellation, lies about 500 light years away. The bright part of the dark cloud is the blue reflection nebula called GN 16.05.2 or Bernes 149.    Inside the cloud a lot of protostars, young stars and stellar objects were found by the astronomers on infrared wavelength. They found many Herbig Haro obcects as well, one of them, HH78 is also visible on this image.

The Carina Nebula; A Painting. The Carina Nebula, in the Carina constellation, is also known as the Great Nebula in Carina, the Eta Carinae Nebula, or NGC 3372. It surrounds several open clusters of stars including two of the most massive and luminous stars in our Milky Way galaxy. It is from 6,500 to 10,000 light years from our own Earth. The painting is 16 inches high by 20 inches wide, acrylic on stretched canvas, on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides. It is signed and dated on…
