Ligado a todos estes intricados processos, encontra-se o surgimento de manchas escuras na superfície do Sol – as badaladas manchas solares. Ao contrário do que algumas pessoas possam pensar, elas não são um sinal de que a estrela se encontra “doente”, antes pelo contrário.

The sun is degrees Fahrenheit and miles away from Earth. It is also times the size of Earth. Earths would fit inside it. If Earth was a golf ball, the sun would be 15 feet in diameter.

This image from ESO’s La Silla Observatory shows part of a stellar nursery nicknamed the Seagull Nebula. This cloud of gas, known as Sh 2-292, RCW 2 and Gum 1, seems to form the head of the seagull and glows brightly due to the energetic radiation from a very hot young star lurking at its heart. The detailed view was produced by the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope.

Nebulosa esmeralda brilhante vista pelo Telescópio Espacial Spitzer da NASA é uma reminiscência de um anel brilhante. Os astrónomos acreditam que anéis como este são realmente esculpidas pela luz poderosa de gigantes estrelas "O". Estas estrelas são o tipo mais maciço de estrelas conhecidas.

This glowing emerald nebula seen by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has been sculpted by the powerful light of giant "O" stars. O stars are the most massive type of star known to exist. Named RCW this region of hot gas and glowing dust can be found in

A small eruption blew a bright, disjointed stream of plasma into space (Oct. 18, 2017). The source of the blast was just out of sight beyond the edge of the sun. Images from SOHO's coronagraph instruments show a bright loop of material heading away from the sun near this same area. The video, taken in extreme ultraviolet light, covers just two hours of activity. (Credit: Solar Dynamics Observatory, NASA)

The sun spews out a bright stream of plasma in this image captured by NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) last Wednesday (Oct.

Em algum remoto rincão do universo cintilante que se derrama em um sem número de sistemas solares, havia uma vez um astro, em que animais inteligentes inventaram o conhecimento. Foi o minuto mais soberbo e mais mentiroso da “história universal”: mas também foi somente um minuto. Passados poucos fôlegos da natureza congelou-se o astro, e os animais inteligentes tiveram de morrer. [Friedrich Nietzsche]

Best Of European Space Agency Photos - Herchel's Image Of Andromeda Galaxy The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are

Nebulosa do Caranguejo Formada por restos de uma supernova, ou tudo o que sobrou de uma explosão estelar gigantesca. A explosão foi percebida daqui da Terra há cerca de mil anos, na China e no Japão.

This image is the largest image ever taken with Hubble's camera. It was assembled from 24 individual exposures taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and is the highest resolution image of the entire Crab Nebula ever made.
