Distant Galaxy Core in the Hubble GOODS North Field

Here is the latest release from ESA.It zooms in with an expansive view of the deep sky Hubble Space Telescope survey called GOODS North (Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey).
Zooming into this field reveals a compact galactic core dubbed GOODS-N-774, the first galaxy spotted in this stage of formation — a very early stage where the dense galactic core is still furiously churning out newborn stars.

Gravitational Lensing of a Distant Merger

This artist’s impression shows how the effect of gravitational lensing by an intervening galaxy magnifies, brightens and distorts the appearance of a remote merging galaxy far behind it.
The viewpoint of the observer moves sideways so that that the distant galaxy merger appears first to one side, where it is faint, and then appears right behind the foreground object and is dramatically magnified and its total apparent brightness increases.

Late Summer M5 Solar Flare

How this event may affect Earth!
Watching this video will make you wander how such a beauty may eventually cause Earth’s distruction.
On Aug. 24, 2014, the sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 8:16 a.m. EDT. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory and STEREO captured images of the flare, which erupted on the left side of the sun. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however, when intense enough they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.

Star Formation in the Southern Milky Way

A beautiful pictorial video from ESO that you will want to ply over and over again!
This very short video gives a close-up view of a spectacular mosaic of images from the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile that shows two dramatic star formation regions in the southern Milky Way. The first is of these, on the left, is dominated by the star cluster NGC 3603, located 20 000 light-years away, in the Carina–Sagittarius spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. The second object, on the right, is a collection of glowing gas clouds known as NGC 3576 that lies only about half as far from Earth.

Mystery in the Ozone Layer

Not long ago I posted a video about this mystery compound in the atmosphere.
Here we have a follow up video that explains further about this mystery.
Almost 30 years after the Montreal Protocol put the brakes on ozone-depleting chemicals, one compound remains stubbornly and mysteriously abundant in the atmosphere. NASA scientists are tracking down the source and studying its effect on the ozone layer.
