    Timelapse video of observatories atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The lasers are essentially reference points to help calibrate the telescopes. Extremely cool video.

    See the big version here.

    Venus approaching the exit of its solar transit. Sun’s color courtesy of the radio telescope set up with a particular filter that translates to this very nice purple in the visual spectrum. Mauna Kea, HI.

    Screencap of ultraviolet-spectrum video capture of solar prominences behind Venus as it crosses in front of the sun. Note that UV light is being scattered *around* Venus, hence its apparent translucence.

    My uncle took this photo of Saturn last night. Weather wasn’t ideal, and I think he’s using a pretty small telescope for yard shots, but it came out alright.
Strange how photos like this give me the sense of reaching out into space and touching the planet directly.

    The universe is cool as shit, dudes and dudettes.
lookaroundforinspiration:

April 24, 2012. The infrared vision of NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed that the Sombrero galaxy, named after its appearance’s similarity in visible light to a wide-brimmed hat, is in fact two galaxies in one according to NASA.
