There are many satellites collecting images for space exploration, and visuals continue to be created with data from these satellites. Let’s take a look at the wonderful space photographs of this week.
Revolutionary observation tools, such as the Hubble Space Telescope, are contributing to many observations to solve the mystery of space.
Data from satellites and telescopes allow incredible visuals to come out after a series of combining and coloring processes. Here are the observations and the wonderful space photographs created through these processes.
1. NGC 3169:
The Hubble Space Telescope sometimes captures an image at just the right angle, as we can see in this photograph of the NGC 3169. The NGC 3169 in this photograph, which looks quite beautiful, is about 70 million light-years from Earth.
2. Red image of the Moon:
Did you know that the moon sometimes appears red as it rises from the horizon? This image shows that when the Moon rises, it first looks red and then orange. This coloration is due to the way the light scatters in our atmosphere as the Moon appears on the horizon.
3. Galaxy NGC 1156:
Galaxy NGC 1156 is one of the busiest star clusters in the universe. The technically irregular galaxy NGC 1156 does not have a clearly identifiable shape. However, bright red features show young star activity.
Wing of the 4th International Space Station:
Astronaut Luca Parmitano took this photo last week from the International Space Station. On his second trip to the station, Parmitano not only visualized not only a wing of the International Space Station solar panels but also the sunlight shining in the ocean.
5. Centaurus A:
In this image we see one of the brightest objects in space, the galaxy called Centaurus A. The bizarre form of Centaurus A probably arose when an elliptical galaxy collided with a small spiral galaxy millions of years ago, but such an ambiguous form will not affect its function. If you look at the bottom left corner, you can see the bright pink areas where the stars are actively formed. You can look at the top right to see the blue areas shining with young stars.
6. ‘Very Large Telescope’:
This image shows the Güney Very Large Telescope ait from the European Southern Observatory. This telescope consists of four separate telescopes, which can also be seen from the sides of the frame with a fisheye look. The Büyük Very Large Telescope ı created by these four telescopes is able to observe 4 million times more detailed than the human eye.
