Panorama of the celestial night sky in southwest New Mexico

December 8, 2013 - A 360 degree panorama taken in the pre-dawn hours from the Painted Pony Resort in southwest New Mexico. Visible in this image, from left to right: Arcturus just on the treetop. The zodiacal light rising up from the east. Red Mars embedded in the zodiacal light below Leo. The Milky Way from Puppis and Canis Major at left arching up and across the sky down into Perseus at right. Sirius the brightest star. Orion setting over the main house. Jupiter, the bright object at top centre in Gemini. Aldebaran and the Pleiades setting right of the main house in Taurus. Polaris over the smaller house at right. The Big Dipper pointing to Polaris at upper right. A green glow along the northern horizon above the smaller house that may be some aurora (there was a good display this night from northern latitudes) or may be intense airglow. Green and red bands throughout the sky are airglow. Bands of high cloud also permeate the sky adding natural glows around the stars

Comet Lovejoy in the winter sky

January 18, 2015 - Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) at upper right near the Pleiades, with its long blue ion tail stretching back to the left past the Pleiades. This wide-angle shot takes in a wide sweep from Orion at bottom left up to Auriga and Perseus at top. At centre is Taurus and the Taurus Dark Clouds of interstellar dust. Some high haze drifiting through added natural star glows but also some sky gradient tints

Artists concept of an exoplanet known as UCF-1.01, orbiting a star called GJ 436 Featured Orion's Belt Image

Artists concept of an exoplanet known as UCF-1.01, orbiting a star called GJ 436

Artist's concept of an exoplanet known as UCF-1.01, orbiting a star called GJ 436, which is located a mere 33 light-years away. Although probably rocky in composition like Earth, UCF-1.01 orbits scorchingly close to its star, so in all likelihood this planet lacks an atmosphere and might even have a molten surface, as shown in this artist's impression.
Because of GJ 436's proximity to our solar system, the star field around it shares many of our culture's famous cosmic landmarks. To the far left, the constellation of Orion gleams, though in a distorted shape compared to our vantage point on Earth. The red giant Betelgeuse (Orion's right shoulder) and blue Rigel (Orion's left foot) stand out, as well as the three belt stars. From GJ 436's perspective, however, the stars do not align as they do in our sky. The Pleiades star cluster is located to the upper left of UCF-1.01
