Latest mind-blowing space goodness:

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft shows a wide shot and two close-ups of a region in asteroid Bennu’s northern hemisphere.



This remarkable image was taken in the Terra Sabaea region of Mars, west of Augakuh Vallis, by the Colour and Stereo Surface Imaging System (CaSSIS) onboard the ESA-Roscosmos ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter.

Fuzzy orb of light is a giant elliptical galaxy M49 filled with 200 billion stars. Unlike spiral galaxies, which have a well-defined structure and boast picturesque spiral arms, elliptical galaxies appear fairly smooth and featureless. At a distance of 56 million ly and measuring 157000 ly across, M49 was the first member of the Virgo Cluster of galaxies to be discovered, and it is more luminous than any other galaxy at its distance or nearer.



M11 open star cluster in the southern constellation of the Shield.

@ the picture above, notice the other galaxies off to the lower right. Those galaxies look like they are near to each other. They are in fact 5ish million light years apart, and one is very much larger than the other.

Reminds me of one of my Elite photos.

I call it Guess Which Star is Closer? It illustrates the concept well.

Yep, the little one is in fact closer. That's just a big-big-big red giant.

Spiral galaxy M98 located ~ 45 million ly away in the constellation of Coma Berenices. It is estimated to contain about a trillion of stars.



This image from ESA’s Mars Express shows Aurorae Chaos, a large area of chaotic terrain located in the Margaritifer Terra region on Mars.

This image – combined of many exposures – captures 'totality' during the 2 July 2019 total solar eclipse, the moment that the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun from Earth's perspective, blocking out its light and allowing the Sun's extended atmosphere – the corona – to be seen. The processing of this image highlights the intricate detail of the corona, its structures shaped by the Sun's magnetic field. Some details of the lunar surface can also be seen. The image was created by the ESA-CESAR team observing the eclipse from ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile, South America.

Juno spacecraft captured this view of an area within a Jovian jet stream showing a vortex that has an intensely dark center




This 8-image mosaic is of Sojourner, NASA's first rover on Mars. [July 4, 1997]



Spiral galaxy NGC 2985 lies > 70 million light years from the Solar System in the constellation of Ursa Major (The Great Bear).

NGC 3169 is located ~ 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Sextans. It's part of the Leo I Group of galaxies, which, like the Local Group that houses our home galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of a larger galactic congregation known as the Virgo Supercluster.

Ahuna Mons on Ceres

This mountain rises to an elevation of 4 km at its peak – Europe’s Mont Blanc on Earth would rise slightly above it (as measured from sea level) – and is marked by numerous bright streaks that run down its flanks.
