    The hunter's stars

    Girt with many a blazing star, Orion, the Hunter, is one of the most easily recognizable constellations. In this night skyscape from January 15, the hunter's stars rise in the northern hemisphere's winter sky, framed by bare trees and bounded below by terrestrial lights around Lough Eske (Lake of Fish) in County Donegal, Ireland. Red giant star Betelgeuse is striking in yellowish hues at Orion's shoulder above and left of center. Rivaling the bright red giant, Rigel, a blue supergiant star holds the opposing position near Orion's foot. Of course, the sword of Orion hangs from the hunter's three belt stars near picture center, but the middle star in the sword is not a star at all. A slightly fuzzy pinkish glow hints at its true nature, a nearby stellar nursery visible to the unaided eye known as the Orion Nebula

    Don't really know colin. It is not my work. Found it on the web on a NASA site. It only states that it was taken in Ireland.

    Aurora Over Norway

    A large coronal mass ejection occurred on our Sun five days ago, throwing a cloud of fast moving electrons, protons, and ions toward the Earth. Although most of this cloud passed above the Earth, some of it impacted our Earth's magnetosphere and resulted in spectacular auroras being seen at high northern latitudes.
    Pictured is a particularly photogenic auroral corona captured last night above Grotfjord, Norway.

    Hi Rob,

    What a shot!!! Living in Moscow certainly occludes my possibility of seeing just about all phenomena - There is just too much light pollution...

    Apparently those in the South Island of NZ may be treated to a display but too far south for me

    Maybe a butterfly? Although my first impression was angel.

    I agree with that, too ... the eagles beak facing towards the right and down a little.

    It is an absolutely stunning photograph ... to be in that hemisphere to see these creations has to be wonderful. I used to live way up in the Pacific Northwest (Washington State) and would see these during the summer months - absolutely beautiful to see.
