Portrait of NGC 281 

Image Credit & Copyright:   J-P Metsävainio (Astro Anarchy)
Look through the cosmic cloud cataloged as NGC 281 and it’s almost easy to miss stars of open cluster IC 1590.  But, formed within the nebula, that cluster’s young, massive stars ultimately power the pervasive nebular glow.  The eye-catching shapes looming in this portrait of NGC 281 are sculpted columns and dense dust globules seen in silhouette, eroded by intense, energetic winds and radiation from the hot cluster stars.  If they survive long enough, the dusty structures could also be sites of future star formation.  Playfully called the Pacman Nebula because of its overall shape, NGC 281 is about 10,000 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia.  This composite image was made through narrow-band filters, but combines emission from the nebula’s hydrogen, sulfur, and oxygen atoms in a visible spectrum palette.  It spans over 80 light-years at the estimated distance of NGC 281.

Columbia’s Reentry

In this image from a NASA video, the silhouette of  Space Shuttle Columbia Commander for mission STS-80, Kenneth Cockrall,  is visible against the front windows of the Space Shuttle during reentry  on December 7, 1996. The orange glow in the window is from ionizing  atoms in the atmosphere caused by the friction of air against the  Shuttle’s surface during reentry.

Silhouetted Endeavour

Though astronauts and cosmonauts often encounter  striking scenes of Earth’s limb, this very unique image, part of a  series over Earth’s colorful horizon, has the added feature of a  silhouette of the space shuttle Endeavour. The image was photographed by  an Expedition 22 crew member prior to STS-130 rendezvous and docking  operations with the International Space Station on February 9, 2010. The  orange layer is the troposphere, where all of the weather and clouds  which we typically watch and experience are generated and contained.  This orange layer gives way to the whitish Stratosphere and then into  the Mesosphere.
