NGC 7008 is a planetary nebula in the Cygnus constellation, around 2800 light years from earth.⁣ ⁣ This is another example of a planetary nebula that was formed in a binary star system (hence the blue color). Read my post of September 17th if you want to know how that works exactly. What's interesting/different about this one however, is that it still appears to have layers. If you zoom in and look closely, you can darker areas separating multiple layers of the nebula. So what's going on there? Those darker layers are actually dust clouds. Now, there's a couple of different theories about where those came from. But for the purpose of this post; I'll stick with the most widely accepted one.⁣ ⁣ What we think happened is that the progenitor star (the star which shedded its layers to form the nebula) had several large/massive planets or brown dwarfs orbiting it relatively closely. Upon the expansion and material shedding of their star; these planets got destroyed. The dust clouds we see now is the remnant/debris of those planets.⁣ ⁣ #slooh #astronomer #astronomy #science #space #astrophysics #universe #cosmos #telescope #galaxy #milkyway #photography #spacetime #spacetravel #physics #astrophotography #interstellar #nebula #astronomie #stars #deepspace #deepsky #nightsky #nasa #spacex #photooftheday #picoftheday #naturephotography #stargazing

STARGAZING ✨⭐⁣ If we could we'd stay in the desert for the rest of our lives just stargazing each night 🙈 lately we have been obsessed with these beautiful night skies 💙 all of this started when we attended the Dark Sky Festival @lassennps which we attended spontaneously last year when camping there! They had experts there all night with amazing gear that let you see everything 🌠 we were so impressed that ever since we love going to places far off the beaten path to reduce light pollution in order to see ALL the stars just like in this picture....when we took this we were in the deep desert in Nevada with no city for 200 miles in each direction 😊 we stayed up all night and just looked at this magical sky 🌚

One of my favorite things to do in astrophotography is shoot mosaics. Not only do you get a larger swath of the sky at higher resolutions, but it allows for much larger prints. This is a 2x2 panel mosaic of the Veil Nebula (sometimes called the Cygnus Loop). A supernova remnant, this object covers 3 degrees, a FOV difficult to achieve in a single shot at high resolution. This image was made with nearly 55 hours of integration time using the @qsimaging 683wsg-8 and @astrodonfilters .

For several evenings, the moonrise comes soon after sunset. This results in an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening, which was a traditional aide to farmers and crews harvesting their summer-grown crops. Hence, it’s called the “Harvest Moon”. . . This year it was on the Friday the 13th. Not that I am superstitious, hell I was born on the 13th 😈 . . This one was taken from a point along the Taylors bay path near Bradleys Head 😊 . . @thecandidpixel . . #harvestmoon #moon #time #day #instaharvest #instatime #instaday #sony #sonya7rm3 #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #discovery #night #love #space #luna #photooftheday #photography #nightsky #like #astronomy #earth #universe #star #science #follow #bhfyp
