Artwork of the celestial northern hemisphere Featured 19 Feb 2004 Print

Artwork of the celestial northern hemisphere

Northern hemisphere stars. Computer artwork of the brightest stars visible in the northern hemi- sphere, with lines of latitude (circles) and longitude (radii). The star clouds of the Milky Way appear as grey areas. The celestial north pole (which lies over Earth's north pole) is at centre, with the celestial equator forming the outermost circle. As the Earth spins during the night, an observer would see the stars apparently moving in circles around the north pole. The bright star near the north pole is Polaris, the Pole Star; it is a valuable aid to navigation because it hardly moves at all. (See image R800/154 for the southern hemisphere)

Artwork of ancient Mars with water on its surface Featured 19 Feb 2004 Print

Artwork of ancient Mars with water on its surface

Ancient Mars. Computer artwork of Mars at least 3 billion years ago, with its moon Phobos (at upper centre). The surface environment of ancient Mars may have allowed life forms to develop. Ancient Mars was warm, with seas covering much of its surface; it also had a thick atmosphere (blue). Water exists on modern Mars only as ice on the surface in polar regions, underground or as vapour or ice crystals in the atmosphere. The atmospheric pressure of modern Mars is only 0.6% that of Earth's, and the average surface temperature is -33 degrees Celsius. This means that it is very unlikely that life still exists on Mars. Phobos was probably an asteroid that Mars captured

Optical view of Supernova 1987A & Tarantula nebula Featured 19 Feb 2004 Print

Optical view of Supernova 1987A & Tarantula nebula

Tarantula nebula and supernova 1987A. True-colour optical image of the Tarantula nebula (NGC 2070, 30 Doradonis, upper left) and supernova 1987A (lower right). Both of these features are in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small galaxy which lies around 170, 000 light years away. The Tarantula nebula is one of the largest and most powerful nebulae known. It is an enormous region of glowing ionised hydrogen gas. The supernova became visible in 1987 as a giant star exploded at the end of its life. It provided astronomers with valuable data about star death. This image was produced by digitally combining photographs taken by the UK Schmidt Telescope in blue and red light
