- C / 2020 M3 (Atlas) by David Lindemann
universomagico.net/2021/10/c20
Comet C / 2020 M3 (Atlas) was discovered by the near-Earth asteroid warning system called ATLAS, which detected this comet on June 27, 2020 when it was shining with a magnitude of 18.8. As of the date of this article, it is not bright enough to be seen with the naked eye, however simple binoculars can capture it well. For those who do not have adequate optics, the.....

universomagico.net/2021/10/ngc
Lynn Hilborn's detailed image shows the western part of the Veil Nebula, cataloged as NGC 6960 is popularly known as the Witch's Broom Nebula. About 8,000 years ago a star exploded and lit up Earth's sky day and night for weeks. After that short period of time it began to fade into the remnant trace of the supernova explosion that took place before human history began. Today it still continues to expand and gain color as it.....

- Sh2-43 ionized region
universomagico.net/2021/10/reg
There is little data that we can collect from the scientific literature for Sh 2-43. Only the Sharpless Catalog itself identifies it as an ionized region, the RCW Catalog places it a short distance from RCW 156, and Galaxy Map records Sh 2-43 as RCW 156. The Digitized Sky Survey image places Sh 2-43 at the center, hover over the image or click on touch screens to identify it. Galaxy map indicates that it is in the same direction as.....

From the Cocoon Nebula IC 5146, to the bright open cluster Messier 39, while in the center of the image stands a large cloud of molecular hydrogen ionized by radiation from the young and hot nearby stars. The light is distributed throughout the frame, but there are also some dark clouds that stand out because they are in.....

- The open cluster NGC 2164

This image shows the open star cluster NGC 2164 located in the Constellation of Doradus, which was discovered by the Scottish astronomer James Dunlop on September 27, 1826. It is an open cluster of the Large Magellanic Cloud LMC, a neighboring galaxy of the Milky Way which is located at a distance of about 160,000 light years from the Solar System. The Large Magellanic Cloud is said to be a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way because.....

universomagico.net/2021/10/ngc
NGC 5084, seen here in an image by astronomer Martin Pugh, is a lenticular galaxy located at a distance of about 80 million light years from the Milky Way and located in the constellation Virgo. From its apparent size and distance it is deduced that it has a diameter of about 200,000 light years. It is one of the largest and most massive galaxies in the Virgo Supercluster. At an inclination of 86º with respect to.....
