The World At Night (TWAN ) 📷: Milky Way and Equinox Aurora Photo by #TWAN_Guest : @ChiragUpreti From the photographer: "Chasing auroras in Iceland, we were lucky to witness a unique aurora under fortunate circumstances that made this shot possible. Auroras are breathtaking and pretty (exponentially more so when viewed for the first time ), however they are also a source of natural light pollution. Here, the aurora appeared to slowly spread from the north, to west then south. The sky over the city of Vik was predicted to be cloudy for the night, but there was a lucky break in the cloud cover that reveled the near vertical Milky Way in this dark site. The illumination of the aurora as it approached the Milky Way was in stark contrast to the dark sky. The slowly dancing wall of magenta and yellow hues was followed by a bright green diffused glow as it advanced towards the Milky Way. Interestingly, the clouds near the horizon also took on a prominent green hue. Also seen in the distant horizon, likely is a precipitation shaft of a far away storm. The foreground here is farmland that leads to the open ocean. About 10-15 minutes after this shot the green glow enveloped the sky and the Milky Way details were lost, soon after the clouds came in and we called it a night. This was a very pleasant and welcome surprise for the Autumn equinox!" Technical details: A single-exposure image with Sony A7S2.

The World At Night (TWAN ) 📷: Moonlit Star-Trails on May 2019 Photo by #TWAN_Guest : Bhaskar Sarkar @onewildwanderer From the photographer: This photo is taken from the rooftop of the Indian Antarctic Research Station, Bharati. In the foreground is one of the satellite antennas looking over the frozen Quilty Bay. It was a clear moonlit sky, the first one in 3 months since the winter had begun. With the sudden loss of cloud cover, the temperature had suddenly plummeted to below -30 degrees Celsius and the winds were peaking at around 30 knots. But this unanticipated appearance of clear sky was too much a temptation to hold me back from freezing my fingers off. The moon illuminated the foreground so vividly, while the Aurora Australis danced into the frame just at the right time. 📎Technical Details: 401 photos taken over 20 minutes stacked, Camera: Canon Eos 6D Mark II, Lens: Samyang 14mm/f2.8, Each photo has the following exif data - Exposure 1.6 seconds, ISO 6400, 14mm, f/2.8 , Photos stacked in Adobe Photoshop CS6 and edited in Adobe Lightroom 6 . 🌐 twanight.org/Guest #twanight

The World At Night (TWAN ) @nightskyphotographer 's photo is featuring today as APOD in NASA. 📷: The Veins of Heaven Explanation: Transfusing sunlight through a still dark sky, this exceptional display of noctilucent clouds was captured earlier this month, reflected in the calm waters of Vallentuna Lake near Stockholm, Sweden. From the edge of space, about 80 kilometers above Earth's surface, the icy cloudsthemselves still reflect sunlight even though the Sun is below the horizon as seen from the ground. Usually spotted at high latitudes in summer months the night shining clouds have made a strong showing so far during the short northern summer nights. Also known as polar mesopheric clouds they are understood to form as water vapor driven into the cold upper atmosphere condenses on the fine dust particles supplied by disintegrating meteors or volcanic ash. NASA's AIM mission provides daily projections of noctilucent clouds as seen from space. . © twanight.org/Heden #P_M_Heden #twanight

The World at Night (TWAN ) Photo by @BabakTafresh Today is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. The race to reach the space in 1950s was largely driven by political leaders to establish a new superpower. An immense budget and public will supported both Soviet and American space scientists to advance technologies like never before. The Sputnik satellite launched the space age in 1957. The U.S. remained second, until Apollo 8 astronauts reached the moon orbit in 1968 and Apollo 11 landed on the moon in July 1969. After the Apollo programs, the manned space race faded and efficient robotic exploration of the solar system, at far lower cost, became the focus of increasingly international collaborations. 📷: Moon rising through the Earth Shadow (blue band ) above the Graves Lighthouse, the outermost of Boston Harbor Islands. * © twanight.org/Tafreshi #Babak_Tafreshi #twanight

The World at Night (TWAN ) 🎋Today, the solstice is at 15:54 Universal Time. 🎬: Baku Analemma (motion ) by #TuncTezel ( @vulerulum ) One full year of solar motion is captured in this photo sequence flash animation from shore of the Caspian Sea in Baku, Azerbaijan (📎See the completed analemma at previous post ). For this image the photos are all made during the local noon. The highest point shows the sun near the day of Summer Solstice (June 21 ) and the lowest marks the shortest days near the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21 ). . Explained the photographer: "After moving to Baku in December 2011, I had quickly realized that the city was no good for TWAN imaging because of its excessive light pollution. So, I decided to take on daytime imagery instead, an analemma project. I first completed a sunrise analemma which were photographed between April and September 2012, and was in fact the second analemma work after my Tutulemma back in 2006. This noon analemma project, appears here, started before the second one and ended after it. From a spot I marked on the sidewalk of my job site, I shot 5-panel all-sky panoramas every 7~10 days. The shooting time was 12:40 local time (GMT+4 ) or 13:40 summer time (GMT+5 ) corresponding to local noon in Baku. I started shooting the first one on 14th December 2011 and shot the last set on 6th December 2012. I used a 8 mm f/3.5 circular fisheye lens, which is normally enough for a single shot all-sky picture. But the Peleng lens I use loses sharpness along the edges, so I went for 5-panel panoramas. I did not use any kind of filter to block the Sun and at this shooting made a series for HDR processing instead. So, every imaging day needed shooting of 18 separate pictures to be processed later. That is why it took 4 months for me to get this final picture, after completion of shooting back in December. So, here it is; an all-sky, high (and low ) noon analemma." .

The World at Night (TWAN ) 📷: Baku Analemma Photo by #Tunc_Tezel ( @vulerulum ) Seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day too, one full year of solar motion is captured in this multi-exposure analemma image from shore of the Caspian Sea in Baku, Azerbaijan. #Analemma is the figure "8" loop that results when one observes the position of the sun at the same time of day over the course of a year. The 23.5° tilt of the earth's axis of rotation and its elliptical orbit about the sun result in the apparent change in the sun's location in the sky when observed at the same location at the same time of day over a year's time. For this image the photos are all made during the local noon. The highest point shows the sun near the day of #Summer_Solstice (June 21 ) and the lowest marks the shortest days near the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21 ). twanight.org?id=3004094 © twanight.org/Tezel #twanight

The World at Night (TWAN ) @Juan_Carlos_Casado 's photo is featuring today as #APOD in #NASA 📷: A Triangular Shadow of a Large Volcano Explanation: Why does the shadow of this volcano look like a triangle? The Mount Teidevolcano itself does not have the strictly pyramidal shape that its geometric shadow might suggest. The triangle shadow phenomena is not unique to the Mt. Teide, though, and is commonly seen from the tops of other large mountains and volcanoes. A key reason for the strange dark shape is that the observer is looking down the long corridor of a sunset (or sunrise ) shadow that extends to the horizon. Even if the huge volcano were a perfect cube and the resulting shadow were a long rectangular box, that box would appear to taper off at its top as its shadow extendedfar in to the distance, just as parallel train tracks do. The featured spectacular image shows Pico Viejo crater in the foreground, located on Tenerife in the Canary Islands of Spain. The nearly full moon is seen nearby shortly after its total lunar eclipse. * © twanight.org/Casado #Juan_Carlos_Casado #twanight

Very low above horizon is bright star Canopus from constellation Carina, part of the mystic boat of the Noah. The meteor was really bright and like an unexpected intruder changed this composition to something very spiritual.

The World at Night (TWAN ) 📷: Sunspots, Mercury & Humans Photo by #TWAN_Guest : @Nikunj_Rawal From the photographer: A transit of Mercury across the Sun takes place when the planet Mercury comes between the Sun and the Earth, and Mercury is seen as a small black dot moving across the face of the Sun. Mercury - the closest, the smallest and the ellipsed orbit planet in our solar system has just transited across the Sun on May 9th 2016 between 16:40 to 19:20 (IST ) from Jamnagar Gujarat, India. This was a well planned single shot image taken from 350 meter distance away from foreground using ultra-telephoto zoom lens. People are enjoying watching transit with music. Earth sized sunspot AR2542 is visible in center right disc of the Sun. Every seven years or so, Mercury can be seen from Earth-passing across the face of Sun. This happens because Mercury’s orbit is inclined by 7 degrees to the plane of Earth’s orbit. Mercury has tiny size (4,860 km ) compare to Sun (13.9 lakh km ) projecting in this featured image appears as a small dot. This was my dream shot and took few days to settle the location, timing and accuracy. I planned for hill/mountain type location a month ago and indentified the Sunset path in ‪‎Google Map‬. 3 days back I just glanced around the hill alone. 2 days back I took my friend with me for the trial session and seemed ok to me. On the judgment day, climbed the hill with a chair, water bottles (in 43°C temperature ) and a guitar for posing shot. I was around 350 meter away from foreground where ultra telephoto zoom lens was to do its work. Most frustrating thing was there was no mobile phone network detectable there, so very much difficulties in communication. Overall, It was a brilliant experience executing the shot. Perhaps, unforgettable experience till now. Feels good, feels better, feels inspired. The next transit of Mercury will occur on 11th Nov 2019 visible from America, Europe and Africa.

The World at Night (TWAN ) #Ben_Canales is TWAN photographer of this month, May 2019. @bcstartrail is innovative night photographer and videographer based in Oregon who often presents human elements in his images. 🌐 www.twanight.org/Canales 🌐 www.thestartrail.com . Originally from the light polluted state of New Jersey in the USA, Ben Canales had no idea what the glowing cloud was above him while camping in the Australian Outback. His current path of chasing moments under the stars dramatically begun that night when he realized it was the Milky Way. Fast forward almost a decade later living in Oregon, and one night camping with a borrowed camera, he was able to take a picture of the Milky Way. Through photography, his personal pursuit evolved into an opportunity to share the night sky with friends and family living under the city lights. Since that night, Canales continues to find deepest inspiration sharing the beauty of the night sky via photography, timelapse and video. His passion is to create media where the viewer can find connection to the stars through a human element within each scene. In 2011, he won National Geographic’s Travel Photo of the Year with a self portrait of stargazing at Crater Lake. His work has been featured on The Weather Channel, APOD, published in books and magazines, and placed in various night sky photography competitions. Canales excitedly pursues the progress of low light technology into the new realm of video of the night sky. #twanight

The World at Night (TWAN ) 📷: Saturn and the Da Vinci Glow @vulerulum 's photo is featuring today as #APOD in NASA. Explanation: On February 2nd early morning risers saw Saturn near an old Moon low on the eastern horizon. On that date bright planet, sunlit crescent, and faint lunar night side were captured in this predawn skyscape from Bursa, Turkey. Of course the Moon's ashen glow is earthshine, earthlight reflected from the Moon's night side. A description of earthshine, in terms of sunlight reflected by Earth's oceans illuminating the Moon's dark surface, was written over 500 years ago by Leonardo da Vinci. On May 2nd an old Moon also rose in the predawn twilight. On that date its ashen glow shared the sky with Venus, the brilliant morning star. May 2nd also marked the 500th anniversary of Leonardo's death in 1519. © twanight.org/Tezel #Tunc_Tezel #twanight

The World at Night (TWAN ) 🌍 #EarthDay is an annual event celebrated on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Let's do something to help our planet and stop destroying it.🌎 * 📷: Colorful Solar Corona over Himalayas Photo by @JeffDaiPhoto Seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day too. In the foreground is the famous Himalayan mountain peak Ama Dablam (Mother's Necklace ), located in the #world_heritage site, Sagarmatha national park of Nepal. But what are those colorful rings around the Sun? A corona visible only to Earth observers in the right place at the right time. Rings like this will sometimes appear when the Sun or Moon is seen through thin clouds. The effect is created by the quantum mechanical diffraction of light around individual, similarly-sized water droplets in an intervening but mostly-transparent cloud. Since light of different colors has different wavelengths, each color diffracts differently. Solar Coronae are one of the few quantum color effects that can be easily seen with the unaided eye. This type of solar corona is a visual effect due to water in Earth's atmosphere and is altogether different from the solar corona that exists continually around the Sun -- and stands out during a total solar eclipse. twanight.org?id=3005325 © twanight.org/Dai #Jeff_Dai #twanight

The World at Night (TWAN ) @Juan_Carlos_Casado 's photo is featuring today as APOD in NASA. 📷: Spiral Aurora over Icelandic Divide Explanation: Admire the beauty but fear the beast. The beauty is the aurora overhead, here taking the form of great green spiral, seen between picturesque clouds with the bright Moon to the side and stars in the background. The beast is the wave of charged particles that creates the aurora but might, one day, impair civilization. In 1859, following notable auroras seen all across the globe, a pulse of charged particles from a coronal mass ejection (CME ) associated with a solar flareimpacted Earth's magnetosphere so forcefully that they created the Carrington Event. A relatively direct path between the Sun and the Earth might have been cleared by a preceding CME. What is sure is that the Carrington Event compressed the Earth's magnetic field so violently that currents were created in telegraph wires so great that many wires sparked and gave telegraph operators shocks. Were a Carrington-class event to impact the Earth today, speculation holds that damage might occur to global power grids and electronics on a scale never yet experienced. The featured aurora was imaged in 2016 over Thingvallavatn Lake in Iceland, a lake that partly fills a fault that divides Earth's large Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. * © twanight.org/Casado #Juan_Carlos_Casado #twanight

Taken after local midnight on April 17, the central Milky Way is rising over the region's southeast horizon. Its luminous track of stars and nebulae along the plane of our galaxy are reflected in the mirror-like lake. The brightest celestial beacon mingled with the diffuse galactic starlight is Jupiter. Slightly dimmer, Saturn is below and left just above the mountains.
