NGC 2359: Thor's Helmet 🔭
.
Follow us @thehubblescope ⭐️
.
NGC 2359 is a helmet-shaped cosmic cloud with wing-like appendages popularly called Thor's Helmet. Heroically sized even for a Norse god, Thor's Helmet is about 30 light-years across. In fact, the helmet is more like an interstellar bubble, blown as a fast wind from the bright, massive star near the bubble's center inflates a region within the surrounding molecular cloud. Known as a Wolf-Rayet star, the central star is an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution. NGC 2359 is located about 15,000 light-years away in the constellation Canis Major. The remarkably detailed image is a mixed cocktail of data from broadband and narrowband filters that captures natural looking stars and the glow of the nebula's filamentary structures. It highlights a blue-green color from strong emission due to oxygen atoms in the glowing gas.

  • Hoje o céu abriu um pouco agora à tarde e eu fui toda animada montar o telescópio para o entardecer... 5 minutos depois o céu fechou totalmente e ficou assombroso 😂 Acho q ele não gosta muito de ser observado 🌙🔭 Na minha casa é péssimo de fazer observação por conta das luzes e prédios da cidade, mas em compensação eu consigo ver parte do nascer deles da sala o que é muito cômodo 🌌🌙👩🏻‍🚀🔭 ✨Vocês viram a super lua essa semana?  #girl #cute #kawaii #love #ulzzang #brazzang #telescopio #telescope #orion #astronomia #astronomy #kawaii #cute #girl #ciencia #sky #ceu

  • Explore Scientific Doublets and Triplets are in stock - stop in and grab one before ES prices go up March 1st. 
This is the 127 ED Doublet on the Twilight I mount. At $779 for the pair, it’s  a lot of telescope for the money!
