'Snow Moon' Shines Over Hermosillo, Mexico

A “snow moon” shone over Hermosillo, Mexico, on Friday, February 10. A full moon in February coincided with a partial, or penumbral, lunar eclipse over the weekend, giving many astronomy enthusiasts a wonderful sight. The phenomenon was called snow moon in the US because it was traditionally the snowiest time of the year.

Here's the Supermoon From 2015 Rising in the Southern Hemisphere (File)

In the lead-up to the supermoon expected November 14, 2016, a photographer released a timelapse video of the September 28, 2015, supermoon, shot from the southern coast of Australia. The 2015 “super blood moon,” which was a <a href="http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-09-28/rare-super-blood-moon-wows-sky-watchers-across-globe/6811208" target="_blank">total lunar eclipse,</a> was captured by sky watchers and astronomy enthusiasts around the world. The supermoon for 2016 is expected to be the biggest and brightest in <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/nov/10/the-science-of-supermoons-the-lunar-lowdown-on-the-biggest-and-brightest-in-60-years" target="_blank">more than 60 years</a>. Supermoons are about 30 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than conventional full moons. This video shows a timelapse of the 2015 moon shot from Barwon Heads, which sits along the southern coast of Australia in Victoria.

Hubble: Timelapse of V838 Monocerotis (2002-2006) [1080p]50s

Hubble: Timelapse of V838 Monocerotis (2002-2006) [1080p]

The unusual variable star V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon) continues to puzzle astronomers. This previously inconspicuous star underwent an outburst early in 2002, during which it temporarily increased in brightness to become 600,000 times more luminous than our Sun. Light from this sudden eruption is illuminating the interstellar dust surrounding the star, producing the most spectacular "light echo" in the history of astronomy. As light from the eruption propagates outward into the dust, it is scattered by the dust and travels to the Earth. The scattered light has travelled an extra distance in comparison to light that reaches Earth directly from the stellar outburst. Such a light echo is the optical analogue of the sound echo produced when an Alpine yodel is reflected from the surrounding mountainsides. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has been observing the V838 Mon light echo since 2002. Each new observation of the light echo reveals a new and unique "thin-section" through the interstellar dust around the star. This video morphs images of the light echo from the Hubble taken at multiple times between 2002 and 2006. The numerous whorls and eddies in the interstellar dust are particularly noticeable. Possibly they have been produced by the effects of magnetic fields in the space between the stars. credit: ESA/Hubble

What The Betelgeuse Explosion Would Look Like From Earth22s

What The Betelgeuse Explosion Would Look Like From Earth

Orion, the massive star Betelgeuse is dying. It reached the end of its life and currently in the terminal throes of shedding vast bubbles of gas into space. Betelgeuse lies some 430 light-years from Earth. Note that determining distances, especially to red supergiant stars, is an unnerving problem in Astronomy. Estimates vary and are often revised, with some as high as 650 light-years, yet it’s already one of the brightest stars in Earth’s sky. The reason is that Betelgeuse is a supergiant star. However, such brilliance comes at a price. Betelgeuse is one of the most famous stars in the sky because it’s due to explode someday. Its enormous energy requires that the fuel be expended quickly, and in fact Betelgeuse is now near the end of its lifetime. In astronomical terms, someday soon it will run out of fuel, collapse under its own weight, and then rebound in a spectacular supernova explosion. When this happens, Betelgeuse will brighten enormously for a few weeks or months, perhaps as bright as the full moon and visible in broad daylight. When will it happen? Probably not in our lifetimes. But, in fact, no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.
