All-Sky Panorama Credit & Copyright: Axel Mellinger - Explanation: This quite stunning panorama of the entire sky is a mosaic of 51 wide-angle photographs. Made over a three year period from locations in California (USA), South Africa, and Germany, the individual pictures were digitized and stitched together to create an apparently seamless 360 by 180 degree view. Using a mathematical prescription like one often used to map the whole Earth's surface onto a single flat image, the complete digital mosaic was distorted and projected onto an oval shape. The image is oriented so the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy runs horizontally through the middle with the Galactic center at image center and Galactic north at the top. Most striking are the "milky" bands of starlight from the multitude of stars in the galactic plane cut by the dark, obscuring dust clouds strewn through the local spiral arms. In fact, almost everything visible here is within our own Milky Way Galaxy. Two fuzzy patches in the lower right quadrant of the mosaic do correspond to external galaxies, though. Known as the Magellanic Clouds, these are small, nearby satellite galaxies of the magnificent Milky Way.

Jupiter's Brain Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, Cassini Project, NASA - Explanation: Gas giant Jupiter is the solar system's largest world with about 320 times the mass of planet Earth. Famous for its Great Red Spot, Jupiter is also known for its regular, equatorial cloud bands, visible in very modest sized telescopes. The dark belts and light-colored zones of Jupiter's cloud bands are organized by planet girdling winds which reach speeds of up to 500 kilometers per hour. On toward the Jovian poles though, the cloud structures become more mottled and convoluted until, as in this Cassini spacecraft mosaic of Jupiter, the planet's polar region begins to look something like a brain! This striking equator-to-pole change in cloud patterns is not presently understood but may be due in part to the effect of Jupiter's rapid rotation or to convection vortices generated at high latitudes by the massive planet's internal heat loss. The Cassini spacecraft recorded this dramatically detailed view of Jupiter during its turn of the millennium flyby enroute to Saturn.

The Orion Nebula from VLT Credit: Mark McCaughrean (AI Potsdam) et al., ISAAC, VLT ANTU, ESO - Explanation: The Great Nebula in Orion is a colorful place. Visible to the unaided eye, it appears as a small fuzzy patch in the constellation of Orion. But this image, a representative-color composite of 81 near-infrared light images taken with VLT's ISAAC, shows the Orion Nebula to be a busy neighborhood of young stars, hot gas, and dark dust. The power behind much of the Orion Nebula (M42) is the Trapezium - four of the brightest stars in the nebula. The eerie blue glow surrounding the bright stars pictured here is their own starlight reflected by nearby dust. Dark brown dust filaments cover much of the region. The whole Orion Nebula cloud complex, which includes the Horsehead Nebula, will slowly disperse over the next 100,000 years.

Towering Forest in the Fog - The great forests of Washington are a constant inspiration to me, and here the fog added mystery to the usual majesty in the Olympic National Forest. The distortion of converging lines caused by tilting the camera up can be easily corrected with the view camera, but in this case it lends a sense of height and drama.Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
An Airplane in Front of the Sun Credit & Copyright: Thierry Legault - Explanation: Sometimes, good planes come to those who wait. Experienced solar photographer Thierry Lagault had noticed planes crossing in front of the Sun from his home in suburban Paris. He then got the idea for the above photograph, but had to wait through many near misses. About two weeks ago, he got his wish: a jet crossed directly in front of the Sun when his solar imaging equipment was set up. The resulting image, shown above, was taken in a specific color of red light called Hydrogen-Alpha, and the picture's contrast has been digitally enhanced. Dark prominences can be seen lacing the Sun's busy surface. The airplane is an MD-11. Authors & editors: Robert Nemiroff (MTU) & Jerry Bonnell (USRA) NASA Technical Rep.: Jay Norris.

Fallen Log and Snake Grass - Winding through the Cascade mountains northeast of Seattle is a wonderful road called the Mountain Loop Highway. The still waters of a small lake found along this route provided an opportunity for an abstract study of an old log extending into the lake, surrounded by outrageously green snake grass. Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
St. Mary Lake Sunset, Glacier Nat'l Park - After a full day exploring the jaw-dropping scenery along the Going-To-The-Sun Highway in Glacier National Park, I finished the day from a popular overlook of St. Mary Lake and Wild Goose Island as the last rays of fiery sun lit up the sky above the silhouette of towering peaks. Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
Evening Light on Ocean and Rocks - From a cliff near Sunset Bay State Park on the Oregon Coast, the elements of water, rock and light combined to produce a spectacular show of power and beauty. The major challenge in shooting from this cliff edge was the strong, constant wind buffeting the bellows of my 4x5 view camera. Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
Spherical Planetary Nebula Abell 39 Credit & Copyright: George Jacoby (WIYN Obs.) et al., WIYN, AURA, NOAO, NSF - Explanation: One of the largest spheres in our Galaxy is giving valuable clues about the chemical composition of stars by its very shape. Planetary nebula Abell 39, now six light-years across, was once a sun-like star's outer atmosphere expelled thousands of years ago. The nearly perfect spherical nature of Abell 39 allows astronomers to accurately estimate how much relative material is actually absorbing and emitting light. Observations indicate that Abell 39 contains only about half of the oxygen found in the Sun, an intriguing but not surprising confirmation of the chemical differences between stars. The reason why the central star is slightly off center by 0.1 light-years is currently unknown. Abell 39 lies about 7000 light years away, although several galaxies millions of light years away can be seen through and around the nebula.

Yellow Tulip in a Sea of Red - The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival near Mount Vernon, Washington attracts thousands of visitors from around the country each spring for its stunning displays of bold, eye-candy color. Roaming the outskirts of a particularly beautiful red field awash in evening sunshine, I was delighted to find the contrast of this lone yellow tulip. Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
Cascading Creek in Olympic Forest - This lush rushing creek in Olympic National Park is unsigned and barely visible from the roadway, but I was greatly rewarded after pulling over and scrambling down the slope to soak in this lovely view and the special glow of the light on a wet, foggy Northwest morning. Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
First Light on Mount Rainier - The evening before this sunrise from the east side of Mount Rainier National Park I scouted foregrounds of gnarled pines along the Silver Forest trail until darkness descended upon me, but was unable to decide where to shot from. Early the next morning as I hit the trail, the perfect foreground revealed itself and the glory of first light did not disappoint. Meditations on the Great Northwest - by Ross Martin - PhotoTripUSA.
X-rays From The Cat's Eye (large version) Credits: NASA / X-ray: Y. Chu (UIUC) et al., Optical: J. P. Harrington, K. J. Borkowski (UMD), Composite: Z. Levay (STScI) Explanation: Haunting patterns within planetary nebula NGC 6543 readily suggest its popular moniker -- the Cat's Eye nebula. In 1995, a stunning false-color optical image from the Hubble Space Telescope detailed the swirls of this glowing nebula, known to be the gaseous shroud expelled from a dying sun-like star about 3,000 light-years from Earth. This composite picture combines the famous Hubble image with new x-ray data from the orbiting Chandra Observatory and reveals surprisingly intense x-ray emission indicating the presence of extremely hot gas. X-ray emission is shown as blue-purple hues superimposed on red and green optical emission. The nebula's central star itself is clearly immersed in the multimillion degree, x-ray emitting gas. Other pockets of x-ray hot gas seem to be bordered by cooler gas emitting strongly at optical wavelengths, a clear indication that expanding hot gas is sculpting the visible Cat's Eye filaments and structures. Gazing into the Cat's Eye, astronomers see the fate of our sun, destined to enter its own planetary nebula phase of evolution ... in about 5 billion years.

Watch the Sky Rotate (labled photo) Credit
: The CONCAM Project, NOAO, NASA, NSF - Explanation: If you could watch the sky for an entire night, what would you see? The above time-lapse sequence from the CONtinuous CAMera (CONCAM) project shows the answer for the skies above Kitt Peak National Observatory on 2000 December 23. First and foremost stars appear to orbit about Polaris, a star near the top of the image. Actually, the Earth is spinning under the sky, and the camera is affixed to the Earth. The diffuse band of light that moves across the image is actually the central disk of our Milky Way Galaxy. Identifiable objects rotating across the frame include the constellation of Orion, stars such as Sirius and Betelgeuse, and planets such as Jupiter and Saturn. The CONCAM project is deploying astronomical quality web-cameras to major observatories with goals of starting a continuous record of the sky and helping astronomers using large telescopes monitor weather conditions remotely.
