Check shaileshshah77's Instagram @Regrann from @nasa -  While this lovely image contains hundreds of distant stars and galaxies, one vital thing is missing - the object Hubble was actually studying at the time! This is not because the target has disappeared. The telescope's camera actually uses two detectors: the first captures the object being studied - in this case an open star cluster known as NGC 299 - while the other detector images the patch of space just 'beneath' it. This is what can be seen here. Technically, this picture is merely a sidekick of the actual object of interest - but space is bursting with activity, and this field of bright celestial bodies offers plenty of interest on its own. It may initially seem to show just stars, but a closer look reveals many of these tiny objects to be galaxies. The spiral galaxies have arms curving out from a bright center. The fuzzier, less clearly shaped galaxies might be ellipticals. Some of these galaxies contain millions or even billions of stars, but are so distant that all of their starry residents are contained within just a small pinprick of light that appears to be the same size as a single star!
The bright blue dots are very hot stars, sometimes distorted into crosses by the struts supporting Hubble's secondary mirror. The redder dots are cooler stars, possibly in the red giant phase when a dying star cools and expands.

Check nathan_conspiracy51_'s Instagram LMC Shell Game
.
"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
.
An alluring sight in southern skies, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is seen here through narrowband filters. The filters are designed to transmit only light emitted by ionized sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms. Ionized by energetic starlight, the atoms emit their characteristic light as electrons are recaptured and the atom transitions to a lower energy state. As a result, this false color image of the LMC seems covered with shell-shaped clouds of ionized gas surrounding massive, young stars. Sculpted by the strong stellar winds and ultraviolet radiation, the glowing clouds, dominated by emission from hydrogen, are known asH II (ionized hydrogen) regions. Itself composed of many overlapping shells, the Tarantula Nebula is the large star forming region at top center. A satellite of our Milky Way Galaxy, the LMC is about 15,000 light-years across and lies a mere 180,000 light-years away in the constellation Dorado.

Check astrophysicsig's Instagram Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system and is the closest planet to the sun and has the fastest orbit around the sun, completing one orbit every 88 Earth days. Much of what we know about Mercury comes from Earth-based observations and spacecrafts which have been sent there. At first glance, Mercury appears very similar to our moon, with huge impact craters and evidence of early volcanic activity. Mercury is only 30% larger than our moon, but it is much heavier. It's gravity however, is still too weak to hold onto any kind of atmosphere, and because of this temperatures on the surface can be as hot as 427°C (801°F), and can drop to as low as -183°C (-297°F). Mercury's large mass is a result of the planet having a strangely large iron core, which occupies 40% of Mercury's interior. Astronomers believe that Mercury may have been larger in its past, but likely lost most of its outer mantle and crust in a collision in its very early history. Scientist are unsure about why it doesn't have a moon in its hill sphere. A possible explanation could be its closeness to the Sun, due to the gravitational influence of the sun in its hill sphere. 
While Mercury has a very fast orbit, completing one full orbit every 88 Earth days, a day on Mercury is actually quite long, around 58.6 Earth days. However, there are some regions on Mercury which never see sunlight at all. Mercury is probably the last place you would expect to find ice, yet astronomers have found observational evidence in the north and south poles that ice may exist within some craters. Because Mercury orbits completely upright, the sun barely peeks over the horizon at the north and south poles. Some craters remain in perpetual darkness. Astronomers have found evidence, in the form of bright radar reflections, that some of these craters may contain ice, likely deposited by earlier impacts from comets.

A medida que la galaxia gira en sentido contrario a las agujas del reloj alrededor de su centro, los brazos espirales vienen muy dramáticamente hasta el núcleo. Se pueden ver regiones de formación de estrellas rosadas que remontan los brazos espirales, y estrellas azules jóvenes y poderosas se ven cerca del exterior de la galaxia.

Check astrothoughts's Instagram Does this strange dark ball look somehow familiar? If so, that might be because it is our Sun. In the featured image from 2012, a detailed solar view was captured originally in a very specific color of red light, then rendered in black and white, and then color inverted. Once complete, the resulting image was added to a starfield, then also color inverted. Visible in the image of the Sun are long light filaments, dark active regions, prominences peeking around the edge, and a moving carpet of hot gas. The surface of our Sun can be a busy place, in particular during Solar Maximum, the time when its surface magnetic field is wound up the most. Besides an active Sun being so picturesque, the plasma expelled can also become picturesque when it impacts the Earth's magnetosphere and creates auroras.  #astronomy #space #spaceship #outerspace #stars #eclipse #moon #earth #mars #saturn #jupiter #neptune #hubble #hubbletelescope #nasa #shuttle #ufo #aliens #astrothoughts #astrology #iss #spacevideos #ufovideos #followforfollow #science 1453796498931378398_4309478497

Check universe_inc's Instagram ''Not only are we in the universe, the universe is in us. I don't know of any deeper spiritual feeling than what that brings upon me.'' – Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist

Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system. It’s just a little bigger than Earth’s moon. It is the closest planet to the sun, but it’s actually not the hottest. Venus is hotter. Along with Venus, Earth, and Mars, Mercury is one of the rocky planets. It has a solid surface that is covered with craters. It has a thin atmosphere, and it doesn’t have any moons.

This small planet spins around slowly compared to Earth, so one day lasts a long time. Mercury takes 59 Earth days to make one full rotation. A year on Mercury goes by fast. Because it’s the closest planet to the sun, it doesn’t take very long to go all the way around. It completes one revolution around the sun in just 88 Earth days.

A day on Mercury is not like a day here on Earth. For us, the sun rises and sets each and every day. Because Mercury has a slow spin and short year, it takes a long time for the sun to rise and set there. Mercury only has one sunrise every 180 Earth days!

This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map imaging campaign during MESSENGER's primary mission. Image released Feb. 18, 2013.
