.
"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, bewith you all. Amen."
.
Eta Car is a massive star, but it's not as bright as it used to be. Now only easily visible in binoculars or a small telescope, Eta Carinae has a history of spectacular flaring and fading behavior. In fact, in April of 1843 Eta Car briefly became second only to Sirius as the brightest star in planet Earth's night sky, even though at a distance of about 7,500 light-years, it is about 800 times farther away. Surrounded by a complex and evolving nebula, Eta Carinae is seen near the center of this false-color infrared image, constructed using data from the Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX). The MSX satellite mapped the galactic plane in 1996. In the picture, wispy, convoluted filaments are clouds of dust glowing at infrared wavelengths. Astronomers hypothesize that Eta Car itself will explode as a supernova in the next million years or so. Massive Eta Car has even been considered a candidate for a hypernova explosion and the potential source of a future gamma-ray burst.

Find out usembsweden's Instagram #Reposted @nasa : This stunning image, captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, shows part of the sky in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer). The region is rendered in exquisite detail - deep red and bright blue stars are scattered across the frame, set against a background of thousands of more distant stars and galaxies. Two features are particularly striking: the colors of the stars, and the dramatic crosses that burst from the centers of the brightest bodies. While some of the colors in this frame have been enhanced and tweaked during the process of creating the image from the observational data, different stars do indeed glow in different colors. Stars differ in color according to their surface temperature: very hot stars are blue or white, while cooler stars are redder. They may be cooler because they are smaller, or because they are very old and have entered the red giant phase, when an old star expands and cools dramatically as its core collapses.

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram "Currently we hunt for exoplanets using the solar transit method. The planet systems we've found so far look very little like our own solar system with lots of very large planets orbiting with very short periods. Are these findings merely a consequence of our planet hunting method (which would logically find more large planets with shorter orbital periods more often because they're easier to spot and they pass in front of their star more often) or is our solar system really an exception to the norm in the universe?" (Well, an intriguing question, isn't?)
To date, scientists have found more planets that could be classified as either mini-Neptunes or super-Earths. So in a way our solar system is "unique" in the way that we don't have, as far as we know, either of these two types of planets in our solar system. Although if Planet Nine exists, it would fall under one of these two categories. Larger planets with close orbits to their stars are the easiest to detect, yet since the introduction of the transit method, planets of different sizes and orbits have become quite numerous. As the image above shows, higher mass planets are actually less common than lower mass planets. So if our solar system does not contain a super-Earth or mini-Neptune, you could consider us to be a unique solar system being that those types of planets are the most common. Well, I hope that answers it. To know more follow me and do check out my earlier posts.

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram Kepler 62f is a super-earth exoplanet discovered by NASA's Kepler space telescope. Kepler 62f is one of five planets that orbit the star Kepler 62. 
Kepler 62f was confirmed to orbit in its stars habitable zone. It lies somewhat in the outer regions of the habitable zone and has an Earth similarity index of 0.69, making it one of the most Earth-like planets found. Kepler 62f is around 1,200 light years away in the constellation Lyra, so we probably won't be visiting anytime soon. It has a radius of only 1.4 larger than Earths and orbits a K-type star, which is slightly cooler and dimmer than our Sun. 
Kepler 62f is likely a rocky world covered by an ocean. Its age and composition are similar to Earth and its size isn't too much larger, so Kepler 62f is a prime candidate for an Earth twin. Kepler 62f is also being examined by the SETI institution.

Find out facticle's Instagram There are approximately 2 trillion galaxies in the universe, up to 10 times more than previously thought, astronomers have reported. The surprising finding is based on 3D modeling of images collected over 20 years by the Hubble Space Telescope and was published in the Astronomical Journal. Astronomers also studied the size of the universe and although the visible universe is approximately 13.8 billion light years in radius, through calculations on the accelerated expansion of the universe astronomers have estimated the universe is approximately 90 billion light years across. *The posted picture is from Hubble and is called 'eXtreme Deep Field'. This picture is taken of an extremely dark and small area of the sky and every point of light in this picture is an entire galaxy.

Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram The first Earth-like planet to be confirmed around another star was Kepler 22b. Located about 600 light years away in the constellation Cygnus, and was discovered by the Kepler space telescope in 2011. 
Kepler 22b is unlike Earth in one major way, it's size. In fact, Kepler 22b is belongs to a newly discovered class of planets known as super-earths, which are smaller in size than Neptune but are larger than the Earth. Kepler 22b has a radius roughly 2.4 times the size of Earths. It's mass and composition remain unknown. There's still much debate about Kepler 22b, mostly its composition is debated. Some think that it may not be a super-earth, but rather, it may be a mini Neptune. This was first proposed because astronomers could not detect the planet using the radial velocity method, meaning that it's a very "light" planet. However, just because it's "light" doesn't mean it's primarily composed of gas. One hypothesis is that Kepler 22b is actually a water world. 
So is Kepler 22b habitable? This still remains unknown. Although we do know that it's the right size and the right distance from its star to have water as a liquid on its surface, it's atmospheric and surface composition remain a mystery. It's orbit is also unknown. For all we know Kepler 22b could have an extremely elongated elliptical orbit, rendering it uninhabitable to life as we know it. Astronomers have predicted that if Kepler 22b has an atmosphere similar to Earth, it would have an average surface temperature of 20°C. Without an atmosphere it would likely have an average temperature of -11°C. Kepler 22b also orbits a G-type star very similar to our own.

Find out kons_'s Instagram Saturn's moon Daphnis appears to be creating waves within Saturn's rings. On January 16, the Cassini spacecraft took the closest image of Daphnis as of yet. At a mere 8 kilometres across, Daphnis orbits inside of the Keeler gap within the rings of Saturn. Although Daphnis is tiny, its weak gravity is enough to pull on nearby material within the rings. It's the gravity of this tiny moon that creates the extraordinary wave-like appearance of the rings. 
We're all use to gravity. It keeps us stuck to the Earth, unless you have a powerful rocket of course. It's extraordinary to see how gravity can create something so stunning. Nature never ceases to amaze. Although I imagine it would be quite dangerous, I would love to stand on the surface of this moon. Just the sight of the rings from this perspective would be absolutely beautiful. Seeing an image is beautiful enough, I can't imagine what it would be like to be standing on that tiny moon. ❤️
