It is not widely known, but the events of the early chapters of Genesis are encoded into the Chinese written language. There is a mind-blowing book about it, titled “The Discovery of Genesis.”

It’s a matter of faith, some people so HATE God or feel so resentful to him they pretend to be atheist and attack faith whenever it shows up (but barely any other faith than Christianity), the same Ilk have changed BC to BCE so from BEFORE CHRIST to there crappy Before the common era nonsense (since it is NOT a common era at all with Chinese, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhists, Jains and many others having completely different dates to us and following a different traditional timeline) and of course they have tried to dispose of AD and replaced with the equally nonsensical ACE, basically the WOKE crowd most of whom hate Christ and blame Christianity for having morality.
Now I am not saying that is the case here BUT it fit’s as far as the one line attack on youtube over a video that does not fit there world view is concerned.

To me since I believe this I would suggest a good possibility that one of the three wise men may have actually been from China since after all whom watched the stars more closely than the Chinese.

A very interesting piece of information and I would love to see more on that and it put’s the resurrection of accurate to AD31, since Jesus is believed by many to have been 33 when he died (Though that may be wrong he may have been younger but for some sect’s the number 33 is very important to there numerological belief systems) then that would make his birth 2BC.

Stranger things have happened than we would like to believe but then a closed mind has often blinded itself to the world of infinte possabillity and then again an open mind can also be led astray more easily so open it carefully but remember pandora and her box knowledge can be a great cornucopia but false assumptions based on false knowlwedge lead to errors in judgement.
Belief will always lead us weather we are right or wrong.

Very cool! Star and flag OP, thank you for sharing this video!

I watched the video just now, it is only three minutes..

It is very interesting…

Basically there was a three hour eclipse and the Chinese people who had no way of knowing what was going on recorded through prophecy that during this eclipse the “man from heaven” died…

And all the sins of the world were placed on him, and now all the sins of the world through Him are pardoned..

Ancient Chinese astronomers wrote these things down when Jesus died and was resurrected and they had no way of knowing other than prophecy inspired by the Holy Spirit.

This is truly amazing and beautiful information

Here is a historical reference by Greek historian, Phlegon, regarding the eclipse, which happened during the 202 Olympics…

“In the fourth year, however, of Olympiad 202, an eclipse of the sun happened, greater and more excellent than any that had happened before it; at the sixth hour, day turned into dark night, so that the stars were seen in the sky, and an earthquake in Bithynia toppled many buildings of the city of Nicaea.”

– Phlegon’s 13th book quoted in Jerome’s translation of Eusebius’ Chronicle, 202 Olympad.

www.neverthirsty.org…

NOTE:
“The fourth year of Olympiad 202” would be between Summer 32 AD and Summer 33 AD…and “the sixth hour” would’ve been 12/noon.

This is really Fortean stuff!!!

 

CHINA’S ANCIENT ALIENS

The Yellow Emperor was a highly gifted “Son of Heaven”. Chinese civilization owes much to the legendary ruler. Huang-ti’s image was that of a “thunder”. And his home star was Regulus…but before he returned there on the “changhuan”, the Yellow Emperor was quite active on our planet.

Liquid Water 1.5 km under Mars surface detected via Radio Echo Radar

iGadgetPro
Feb 7, 2022

European Space Agency and NASA found Liquid Water deposits under South Pole of Mars using MARSIS Radar instrument. Science article presents strong radar echoes from the bottom of the Martian southern polar deposits are interpreted as being due to the presence of liquid water under 1.5 km of ice. Finally it is possible, that under huge layer of ice there could probably be lakes and flowing Martian rivers. Radio Echo Sounding (RES) is a suitable technique to resolve this dispute, because low frequency radars have been used extensively and successfully to detect liquid water at the bottom of terrestrial polar ice sheets. Sound/acoustic radar means that frequency of transmitted signal is quite low. The Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS) instrument on the Mars Express spacecraft is used to perform RES experiments at Mars.

Project Lyra – The Mission to Chase After ‘Oumuamua

It’s been over 4 years since Oumuamua visited our Solar System and left amateur and professional astronomers scratching their heads saying “WTF was that thing ?” , sadly Oumuamua passed before we could get a look at it so now the Institute for Interstellar Studies have revealed they have been working on a plan to launch a mission to chase after the what ever it was to answer the questions Oumuamua left us with , was it a chunk of ice , rock or something more exotic.

The Institute say if they launch a probe in 2028 by using slingshots of our Solar System planets they could catch up to the mystery object in 26 years , yeah it’s a long wait and some of us probably won’t get to see the results but the idea is still an exciting prospect.

Interestingly enough, there are many proposals on the table for missions that could do just that. Consider Project Lyra, a proposal by the Institute for Interstellar Studies (i4is) that would rely on advanced propulsions technology to rendezvous with interstellar objects (ISOs) and study them. According to their latest study, if their mission concept launched in 2028 and performed a complex Jupiter Oberth Manoeuvre (JOM), it would be able to catch up to ‘Oumuamua in 26 years.

On October 30th, 2017, less than two weeks after ‘Oumuamua was detected, the Initiative for Interstellar Studies (i4is) inaugurated Project Lyra. The purpose of this concept study was to determine if a mission to rendezvous with ‘Oumuamua was feasible using current or near-term technologies. Since then, the i4is team has conducted studies that considered catching up with the ISO using nuclear-thermal propulsion (NTP) and a laser sailcraft, similar to Breakthrough Starshot – an interstellar mission concept for reaching Alpha Centauri in 20 years.
www.universetoday.com…-154028

Video from the Institute for Interstellar Studies detailing their plan.

It’s no secret that I find ‘Oumuamua fascinating and think it’s the closest we’ve come to finding something possibly designed by ET but I also find the name of the project fascinating too , mainly because of this sat in my picture callery.

Not saying it’s Aliens but …..

Nifty keen!

 

This NASA Probe Just Accidentally Detected Something Huge Travelling Through The Orion Nebula

Unexplained Mysteries
Jan 25, 2022

This NASA probe just accidentally detected something huge travelling through the Orion Nebula. Today, we take a look at what was just detected in the Orion Nebula.

The M42 is a nebula that can be found in the Milky Way galaxy. It’s more commonly called the Orion Nebula, and it’s been detailed by many ancient cultures throughout our history. The Orion Nebula can be seen without the use of telescopes, making it one of the most viewed and photographed Nebula’s.

A few years back astronomers spotted an interesting object while looking through photographs of the Orion nebula they had captured. The astronomer was using a powerful telescope and decided to photograph Orion, but….

Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

Very cool. And very huge.

The Apollo 12 Mission’s photo number AS12-46-6848 is rather soothing.

 

NOTE: I have been made aware that what I’ve published here is in fact the Chang’e 4 lander and not the Cube. I sincerely apologize for this error. I’m embarrassed af. Forgive me.

I just did a mega-crop from the 25MB tiff file available at Arizona State University’s website devoted to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Go to www.lroc.asu.edu… and there is a topographical map and a photo you can zoom in on.

So, wow, it is truly a thing and a remarkable one at that!

Props to the ATS crew for finding this.

As French and Saunders used to say, “Absolutely Fabulous!”

Bummer that it will take 3 months for Yutu 2 to get over there, but after investigating the specifics of the rover, it is an unfortunate necessity.

I do hope that the Chinese pause after each leg and send pictures as they get closer and closer. That would be really nice.

But, damn, look at that thing!

Footage From The First-Ever Probe to Touch The Sun

This is what it’s like to touch the Sun.

The footage was taken by NASA’s Parker Solar Probe over the period of 4 days as it swooped into the Sun’s corona.

So, what are we actually looking at? These images were captured by the Parker probe’s WISPR (Wide-field Imager for Solar Probe) instrument.

All of those streaks the probe is zooming through are coronal streamers – massive loops of electrically charged gas and plasma that connect two regions of opposite polarity on the Sun. They’re extended out by the solar wind and they glow like this because they’re filled with electrons.

These streamers, also known as helmet streamers, are usually only visible from Earth during an eclipse – but in the footage they’re seen as the spacecraft flies above and below them inside the corona.

But that’s not all there is to gape at in the Parker time lapse. Take another look and you may notice there are planets visible in the background – including Earth!
www.sciencealert.com…

If you have time take a look at the screen shots in the article that explain what is shown in the footage , cool stuff.

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Touches The Sun For The First Time

NASA Goddard
Dec 14, 2021

For the first time in history, a spacecraft has touched the Sun. NASA’s Parker Solar Probe has now flown through the Sun’s upper atmosphere – the corona – and sampled particles and magnetic fields there. The new milestone marks one major step for Parker Solar Probe and one giant leap for solar science. Just as landing on the Moon allowed scientists to understand how it was formed, touching the very stuff the Sun is made of will help scientists uncover critical information about our closest star and its influence on the solar system.

Could this be a Crashed Disc-Shaped Object Spotted Near Ceti Mensa on Mars?

Jean Ward
Dec 3, 2021

The photograph analyzed here (PSP_001984_1735) was acquired by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on 29 December 2006 and is described as ‘Swirls of Rock in Candor Chasma.’

Here I feature an anomaly I discovered at a new site in Ceti Mensa in the region Valles Marineris. The anomaly looks like a disc-shaped object which hit the surface of Mars at a very low angle and left a trench behind it. The disc-shaped object measures approximately 12 to 15 metres in diameter. Apart from removing a few sand dunes to highlight the object I didn’t change anything else in the photograph. To see the anomaly for yourselves please download the original JP2 from the NASA link provided below and download HiVIEW to open the JP2 (the anomaly is right there for anyone to see).

Alternatives: Could this possibly be a ramp leading into an underground entrance or is this an incomplete Project Ice-Worm structure? Or are we seeing a strange arc-shaped dune?

As always, until we get to see these anomalies up close and personal, I can only speculate as to what these objects might be.

Here’s a crop of the 658 MB JP2 image, taken at 80% zoom.

As it shows more than the video we can see that:
– the “track” is not completely straight, it makes a slight “S” shape;
– it starts on a raised feature;
– it appears to continue just on the surface to the left of the “UFO”.

An anaglyph (for those with those red/cyan glasses) shows that it’s really a deep “cut” in the ground and that it’s not smooth, as more or less in the middle we can see a slight deviation of the ditch’s walls.

PS: I strongly recommend having a pair of those 3D glasses, these images give us a completely different view of Mars.

(click the images for full size)

One thing I only noticed on the anaglyph was that the “ditch” cuts the small hill just below “south” of it.

In this height map you can get an idea of relative height of the area (click for full size).I marked the area being discussed with a black rectangle.

This NASA Satellite Has Just Detected A Huge Miles Long Structure Moving On The Surface Of Mars

Unexplained Mysteries
Nov 4, 2021

This NASA satellite has just detected a huge miles long structure moving on the surface of Mars. Today, we take a look at what this NASA satellite detected on the surface of Mars. In recent years Mars has been featured a lot in the news, and this is because space agencies are gearing up to send various missions there. NASA and other companies like Spacex have been vocal about how they plan to send humans there within the next few decades, with the end plan having various space shuttles carrying humans there daily. It sounds far-fetched but it’s something that researchers have said can happen. Although it can happen though it comes with various obstacles, mainly cost. Setting up something like this will easily go into the billions.

Thank you for watching!
Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

“Isolated Araneiform Topography”

This image of the south pole was taken by HiRISE on (87.123°S, 126.291°E) on March 24th, 2007. Araneiform comes “aranea” (Latin) meaning spider; the HiRISE team saw these channels, carved into the surface by CO2 gas erupting from the ground, and thought they looked spider-like. They form after CO2 sublimates as the seasons change causing a build up a gas below the surface. Eventually the surface ruptures, creating these features. To me they look more like neurons but I can see their resemblence to spiders.

The width of this image is about 1 km.

Photograph of a Helicopter and a Rover from a Spacecraft orbiting Mars at an altitude of 279 km (173.4 miles) on September 24 2021, Local Mars time 15:30.

After a dramatic landing in February, the Perseverance rover and its Helicopter sidekick was re-imaged by HiRISE about 700 meters (2300 feet) from its original landing site. The rover doesn’t drive in a straight line though, and has covered much more ground than that (faint wheel tracks on the nearby ground are visible). HiRISE images like this one allow the rover team to choose the best route to get to their primary target and help put the rover’s observations in context within Jezero Crater.

  • The distance between the rover and the helicopter when this image was taken on September 24th was 175 meters (574 feet)
  • MRO Spacecraft altitude 279.0 km (173.4 miles)
  • Original image scale range from 28.8 cm/pixel (with 1 x 1 binning) to 57.6 cm/pixel (with 2 x 2 binning)
  • Map projected scale 25 cm/pixel and North is up
  • Raw images: www.uahirise.org/ESP_071077_1985
  • Viewed and cropped with HiView software from the 390 Mb HiRISE image
  • The HiRISE camera is onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) that’s been orbiting and imaging Mars for 15 years.
  • The HiRISE camera was built by Ball Aerospace and Technology Corporation and is operated by the University of Arizona.

This Telescope Just Observed Something Huge Approach Our Moon That Can’t Be Explained

Unexplained Mysteries
Sep 24, 2021

This telescope just observed something huge approach our Moon that can’t be explained. Today, we take a look at what this telescope observed close to our Moon.

The Moon is one of the most studied celestial objects outside of Earth. In 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon, marking a turning point in humanity, in which space agencies promised to return.

As mentioned by spacex, only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history, noting that no one has been back since 1972. Spacex have announced that they plan to send their Starship spacecraft and Super Heavy rocket to the Moon, noting that Starship will have the ability to carry in excess of 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit.

NASA’s Mars Perseverance Rover Captured Possible Aliens’ Spacecraft Flying In The Martian Sky

Physics Insight
Sep 11, 2021

NASA’s Mars Perseverance rover acquired these images using its onboard Left and Right Navigation Camera (Navcam). The camera is located high on the rover’s mast and aids in driving. These images were acquired on Sep. 11, 2021 (Sol 199) and Sep. 8, 2021 (Sol 196).

NASA’s Perseverance rover has now socked away two Red Planet samples. Perseverance collected a drilled-out core of a Martian rock dubbed “Rochette” and sealed the sample in its designated titanium tube on Wednesday (Sept. 8). The success came just four days after the car-sized rover collected its first-ever Martian sample, which was also cored from Rochette.

Perseverance Rover Spotted Strange Moving Object On Mars || Mysterious Object Is Moving On Mars

Physics Insight
Jul 5, 2021

Since NASA launched Perseverance Rover to Mars, on July 30, 2020, NASA is continuously monitoring it and taking its live updates. Its main goal is to Seek signs of ancient life and collect samples of rock and regolith (broken rock and soil) for possible return to Earth. The rover landed on Jezero Crater, Mars on Feb. 18, 2021. Perseverance is currently at the eastern edge of a scientifically interesting region called “Séítah,” which is characterized by sandy ripples that could be very challenging terrain for wheeled vehicles like the rover.

NASA’s Mars Perseverance rover acquired these images using its Left Mastcam-Z camera. Mastcam-Z is a pair of cameras located high on the rover’s mast. These images were acquired on Jul. 4, 2021 (Sol 132).

I love moving objects on Mars.

Especially when they’re in the air. I believe I saw these before, but I’m not sure, as there were several reports like this back in this timeframe.

It is quite exciting for this old soul to see them. I have no idea what they might be.
Perhaps something living, but that planform is quite bizarre. All the other ones had a remarkably similar appearance.

Talk about High Strangeness… flying rocks?

Hubble is back and once again delivering the goods , this time the telescope has captured a stunning image of an ‘Einstein Ring’ , basically a cosmic looking glass created in this instance by the gravity of 2 Galaxies at the centre of the ring.

In the center in the image is a shiny, near-perfect ring with what appear to be four bright spots threaded along it, looping around two more points with a golden glow.
This is called an Einstein ring, and those bright dots are not six galaxies, but three: the two in the middle of the ring, and one quasar behind it, its light distorted and magnified as it passes through the gravitational field of the two foreground galaxies.

Because the mass of the two foreground galaxies is so high, this causes a gravitational curvature of space-time around the pair. Any light that then travels through this space-time follows this curvature and enters our telescopes smeared and distorted – but also magnified.

Just fabulous! Bravo Hubble Team!

Newly Discovered World Is The Closest Directly Imaged Exoplanet Ever , COCONUTS !

COCONUTS 2b that is , just 35 light years away a Star called COCONUTS 2 hosts a gas giant Planet called COCONUTS 2b , luckily for us the Planet orbits it’s parent Star at an impressive 6,471 times the distance between Earth and the Sun away from it’s parent allowing us to get a picture and making it the closest Exoplanet we’ve imaged so far, the great distance also means a year on / in COCONUTS 2b takes 1.1 million years !

COCONUTS 2b is the red dot top left.

Not only is COCONUTS-2b (named for the COol Companions ON Ultrawide orbiTS survey) the closest directly imaged exoplanet to Earth to date – at a distance of just 35 light-years – it’s a rarity among exoplanet discoveries: a relatively cool, massive gas giant, orbiting its star at a great distance.

“With a massive planet on a super-wide-separation orbit, and with a very cool central star, COCONUTS-2 represents a very different planetary system than our own Solar System,” said astronomer Zhoujian Zhang of the University of Hawaiʻi Institute for Astronomy.

What made it visible is that, although it’s cool for a gas giant exoplanet, it’s still pretty warm, with a temperature of around 434 Kelvin (161 degrees Celsius, or 322 degrees Fahrenheit), in spite of its distance from the warmth of the star.

COCONUTS-2b is still quite young, up to only around 800 million years; its warm temperature is residual heat from the exoplanet’s formation, trapped inside the massive exoplanet, six times the mass of Jupiter. This heat means that the exoplanet faintly glows in infrared wavelengths – enough to be discernible in direct images.

Its huge orbital distance will have other benefits for future research, too. It may be able to help us better understand how gas giants form, a process that we still don’t understand very well – and taking a closer look at it will help us better understand gas giant diversity.

So, something actually pretty awesome. In a paper published today in Nature astrophysicists have reported the first ever detection of light emitted from behind a black hole. Ya know, those things that have such a strong gravitational pull, light itself can’t escape.

An analysis of X-ray flares from the innermost of region of a black hole’s accretion disk revealed short flashes of photons with patterns consistent with emmision from behind the black hole.

Pretty much, x-rays and photons are bouncing around the accretion disk of the black hole in such a way that the photons could only have emerged from behind the black hole itself.

Such a thing was predicted by Einstein some time ago now, some long time and finally, for the first time, it has now been observed.
This means soon we may actually get a glimpse at the far.side of a black hole.

news.stanford.edu…

Link to study published in nature.

Watching X-rays flung out into the universe by the supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy 800 million light-years away, Stanford University astrophysicist Dan Wilkins noticed an intriguing pattern. He observed a series of bright flares of X-rays – exciting, but not unprecedented – and then, the telescopes recorded something unexpected: additional flashes of X-rays that were smaller, later and of different “colors” than the bright flares.

According to theory, these luminous echoes were consistent with X-rays reflected from behind the black hole – but even a basic understanding of black holes tells us that is a strange place for light to come from.

“Any light that goes into that black hole doesn’t come out, so we shouldn’t be able to see anything that’s behind the black hole,” said Wilkins, who is a research scientist at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. It is another strange characteristic of the black hole, however, that makes this observation possible. “The reason we can see that is because that black hole is warping space, bending light and twisting magnetic fields around itself,” Wilkins explained.

The strange discovery, detailed in a paper published July 28 in Nature, is the first direct observation of light from behind a black hole – a scenario that was predicted by Einstein’s theory of general relativity but never confirmed, until now.

The leading theory for what a corona is starts with gas sliding into the black hole where it superheats to millions of degrees. At that temperature, electrons separate from atoms, creating a magnetized plasma. Caught up in the powerful spin of the black hole, the magnetic field arcs so high above the black hole, and twirls about itself so much, that it eventually breaks altogether – a situation so reminiscent of what happens around our own Sun that it borrowed the name “corona.”

“This magnetic field getting tied up and then snapping close to the black hole heats everything around it and produces these high energy electrons that then go on to produce the X-rays,” said Wilkins.

As Wilkins took a closer look to investigate the origin of the flares, he saw a series of smaller flashes. These, the researchers determined, are the same X-ray flares but reflected from the back of the disk – a first glimpse at the far side of a black hole.

Link to study published in nature.

Abstract from the study:

The innermost regions of accretion disks around black holes are strongly irradiated by X-rays that are emitted from a highly variable, compact corona, in the immediate vicinity of the black hole1,2,3. The X-rays that are seen reflected from the disk4, and the time delays, as variations in the X-ray emission echo or ‘reverberate’ off the disk5,6, provide a view of the environment just outside the event horizon. I Zwicky 1 (I Zw 1) is a nearby narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxy7,8. Previous studies of the reverberation of X-rays from its accretion disk revealed that the corona is composed of two components: an extended, slowly varying component extending over the surface of the inner accretion disk, and a collimated core, with luminosity fluctuations propagating upwards from its base, which dominates the more rapid variability9,10. Here we report observations of X-ray flares emitted from around the supermassive black hole in I Zw 1. X-ray reflection from the accretion disk is detected through a relativistically broadened iron K line and Compton hump in the X-ray emission spectrum. Analysis of the X-ray flares reveals short flashes of photons consistent with the re-emergence of emission from behind the black hole. The energy shifts of these photons identify their origins from different parts of the disk11,12. These are photons that reverberate off the far side of the disk, and are bent around the black hole and magnified by the strong gravitational field. Observing photons bent around the black hole confirms a key prediction of general relativity.

Mars has hidden depths hinted at by intriguing pits scattered around the planet. Some of these tantalizing windows may be entrances to underground caverns. If humans ever make it to Mars, they may want to consider hunkering down underground to protect themselves from space radiation.

This image from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) in 2011 shows a hole on the slopes of the Pavonis Mons volcano. “Why there is a circular crater surrounding this hole remains a topic of speculation, as is the full extent of the underlying cavern,” NASA said in an image feature in 2020.

“Mysterious Light-Toned Deposit in Vinogradov Crater”

This image of Vinogradov (20.981°S, 323.137°E), a heavily eroded 220 km diameter crater in Margaritifer Terra, was taken by HiRISE on July 1st, 2014. You can see many strange light-toned blobs, some of which appear circular and probably outline small craters. Scientists think this could have formed from the ejecta of a nearby crater, but the details of its origins are still unknown.

The width of this image is about 1 km.

Juno Flies Past the Moon Ganymede and Jupiter, With Music by Vangelis

NASA
Jul 14, 2021

On June 7, 2021, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s ice-encrusted moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. Less than a day later, Juno made its 34th flyby of Jupiter. This animation provides a “starship captain” point of view of each flyby. For both worlds, JunoCam images were orthographically projected onto a digital sphere and used to create the flyby animation. Synthetic frames were added to provide views of approach and departure for both Ganymede and Jupiter.

Asteroid Juno Passing in front of M10

Needed something to shoot while waiting for the summer targets to rise, and I saw in stellarium that the ~250km asteroid Juno was going to pass in front of the M10 globular cluster. Each night had different seeing, clouds, and moon conditions, which is why the frames vary a bit in brightness and sharpness (also had a couple satellites fly through causing the streaks). Also photographed M10 in color back in 2019. Captured on June 16, 17, and 18th, 2021 from a Bortle 6 zone.

“South Polar Cap, Summer 2000”

This image of the Martian south pole (83.9°S 160.0°E) was taken by the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) spacecraft on April 17th, 2000. It was southern summer and the south pole was now at its smallest extent. In southern winter the south pole would easily fill the entire width of this image, but in summer it shrinks to only about 420 km across.

Was any post-processing done to this?

mustalainen

Yes, quite a bit, firstly the actual picture only captures about 0.012% of the visual light (Ha wavelength) so there is no color. Secondly it is a mosaic of the sharpest part of the 300 sharpest frames. then you sharpen that further and bring out contrasts using a special program. When that is done you bring out the colors using photoshop.

A Dust Devil on Mars

This image of a dust devil in Amazonis Planitia (35.824° N 207.485° E, a few hundred km east of SpaceX’s proposed Mars landing sites) was taken on February 16th, 2012 by HiRISE. Amazonis Planitia is a large flat region in the northern lowlands which give rise for relatively high wind speeds during some parts of the year. Dr. Paul Geissler wrote about this image: “The delicate arc in the plume was produced by a westerly breeze at about a 250-meter height that blew the top of the plume towards the east. The westerly winds and the draw of warmth to the south combine to guide dust devils along southeast trending paths, as indicated by the tracks of many previous dust-devils.”

Everyday I post an image like this in r/Areology, check out that subreddit if you like this kind of stuff!

The width of this image is about 1km and the diameter of the dust devil is about 30 meters.

Any feedback is welcome I used my Orion sky quest 8in Dobsonian Telescopes with a 10mm and 2x Barlow

My camera is a Sony a5000

So first I took a 0:24 second video

Then I put it into the program called PIPP that turned it into a AVI file

Then I took the AVI file in AutoStakkert and had it stack it altogether

Then did some fine tuning in registacks

Thank you!!

Full view of Jupiter in infrared light

troyunrau

Jupiter’s heat is largely internally generated — not from the sun. So the bands you’re seeing is where heat is rising from the interior, while the cold bands have cooled due to losing heat to space (in the form of infrared).

There is some sunlight related heating, but Jupiter emits twice as much as it gets from the sun. There are some that propose that Jupiter has some limited amounts of fusion going on in the interior to sustain this, but it could also just be latent heat of formation or due to mineral phase changes (crystallization processes).

Image taken by SkyCam on sol 99. Guessing they are stars?

paulhammond5155, Top contributor

The SkyCam is a modified (flight-spare) HazCam from Curiosity Rover. Therefore, I think it would be surprising if any stars were visible in this frame. To resolve stars the exposure duration would need to be fairly long, if that was the case we would see all the bright spots tracking around the sky as Mars rotated (the camera is fixed to the deck and does not move).

I believe it might be able to resolve the Martian moons, possibly some of the brighter planets and maybe fortuitously capture an incoming meteorite. Most of what we are seeing is probably noise and cosmic ray hits.

I’d really like these to be stars and galaxies as one comment mentioned, but to me it seems unlikely. But hey what do I know?

I’d like to be wrong in this case 🙂

EDIT: I have added the internal ring (anulus) and other optical shields that would mask areas of all exposed SkyCam images. These areas are masked to prevent stray light from entering the camera. But we can see in the image shared that there are star-like features etc where there should be none. Look closely at the original image and we can make out the masked areas of the lens (they’re a little darker. Each SkyCam image also captures part of the mast, again that should mask light entering the camera from stars etc LINK
