North America Nebula


Click for wallpaper download

The North America nebula is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus. It received its name because it resembles the North American continent. To see it, tilt your head to the left and look at the left portion of the red nebula. Florida and the Gulf of Mexico can be easily seen on the bottom. The nebula is actually about 4 times the size of the full moon in the sky, but because of its low surface brightness it is hard to spot outside of photographs. The exact distance of the nebula is not known but it is thought the bright star Deneb (brightest star in this image) is the star responsible for ionizing the gas. If this is the case, it’s approximately 1,800 light years away and 100 light years across in size.

Summer Milky Way


Click for wallpaper download

A close up just north of the Sagittarius region of the Milky Way. The predominate reddish nebula seen in the photograph are the Eagle nebula and Omega nebula. The pair reside 5000 – 7000 light years away. The dark regions are areas where stellar dust and gas are blocking out star light behind them. The stars are so dense because we’re looking directly into the center of the galaxy. To the naked eye the Milky Way appears as a wispy cloud because our eyes cannot resolve the individual stars.

Polaris

Due to the Earth’s roation, stars rotate around Polaris (a.k.a. the North Star). Because Polaris is right near our celestial pole, it always stays at the same spot in the sky. Other streaks in the sky are meteors.
