Cosmic ‘Winter’ Wonderland

[Image: ngc6357.jpg?itok=YSpaTbOq]

Quote:Although there are no seasons in space, this cosmic vista invokes thoughts of a frosty winter landscape. It is, in fact, a region called NGC 6357 where radiation from hot, young stars is energizing the cooler gas in the cloud that surrounds them.

NGC 6357: Stellar Wonderland

[Image: ngc6357_nasa_960.jpg]

APOD Wrote:Explanation: For reasons unknown, NGC 6357 is forming some of the most massive stars ever discovered. This complex wonderland of star formation consists of numerous filaments of dust and gas surrounding huge cavities of massive star clusters. The intricate patterns are caused by complex interactions between interstellar winds, radiation pressures, magnetic fields, and gravity.

Hubble Gazes at a Cosmic Megamaser

[Image: potw1652a.jpg?itok=5osF5N3n]

Quote:This galaxy has a far more exciting and futuristic classification than most — it hosts a megamaser. Megamasers are intensely bright, around 100 million times brighter than the masers found in galaxies like the Milky Way. The entire galaxy essentially acts as an astronomical laser that beams out microwave emission rather than visible light (hence the ‘m’ replacing the ‘l’).

A megamaser is a process where some components within a galaxy (like gas clouds) are in the right stimulated physical condition to radiate intense energy  (in this case, microwaves).

This megamaser galaxy is named IRAS 16399-0937 and is located over 370 million light-years from Earth. This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image belies the galaxy’s energetic nature, instead painting it as a beautiful and serene cosmic rosebud.

M31: The Andromeda Galaxy

[Image: m31_antonis_960.jpg]

APOD Wrote:Explanation: What is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy? Andromeda. In fact, our Galaxy is thought to look much like Andromeda. Together these two galaxies dominate the Local Group of galaxies. The diffuse light from Andromeda is caused by the hundreds of billions of stars that compose it. The several distinct stars that surround Andromeda's image are actually stars in our Galaxy that are well in front of the background object.

Global Temperature Record Broken for Third Consecutive Year

[Image: globaltemps_gis_2016.png]

The planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 1.1°C (2.0°F) since the late 19th century.

Quote:Two years ago, we wrote: “The year 2014 was Earth’s warmest in 134 years of records.” Last year we wrote: “2015 was the warmest year ever recorded on Earth, and it was not even close.” This year, we are running out of ways to say it.
