A Space Station Meets its Destiny Credit: STS-98 Crew, NASA - Explanation: The International Space Station (ISS) had a date with Destiny earlier this month. More specifically, the crew of the Space Shuttle Atlantis installed the science laboratory named Destiny on the ISS. Destiny, pictured here, will also serve as a control center for the Earth orbiting space station. To help install this module, space shuttle astronauts conducted the 100th space walk by an American, an event that occurred nearly 40 years after Ed White first ventured outside of his Gemini 4 spacecraft. The space shuttle's crew took the above picture after their spacecraft had undocked from the space station. Over two hundred kilometers below lies the Rio Negro region of Argentina.

The Sudbury Neutrino Detector Credit: A. B. McDonald (Queen's University) et al., The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Institute - Explanation: Two thousand meters below the ground, a giant sphere has begun to detect nearly invisible particles. These particles, neutrinos, are extremely abundant in the universe but usually go right through just about everything. By stocking this 12-meter sphere with an unusual type of heavy water and surrounding it with light detectors, astrophysicists hope to catch the occasional collision. Since the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) is sensitive to all types of neutrinos, future results might hold clues to how much neutrinos change types on the fly, how our own Sun emits neutrinos, and even how important neutrinos are to the composition of the entire universe.

Mt. Rundle - Mount Rundle is a remarkably obvious landmark in Banff, Alberta, Canada. It is probably one of the most photographed landmarks in the area. This picture was taken at dawn (about 4:40am) and it captures the warmth of the sunset contrasted by the cold starkness of the mountain. In the Spirit of Nature - by Bert and Mary Anne Sirkin - PhotoTripUSA.
Barred Owl - This picture of a Barred Owl was taken in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida. This Barred Owl was flying back and forth between several trees eating, what appeared to be, grasshoppers. In the Spirit of Nature - by Bert and Mary Anne Sirkin - PhotoTripUSA.
Jumbo Rocks - This was taken at Joshua Tree National Park in an area called "Jumbo Rocks". The area is aptly named, as there are large rocks that appear to be piled upon each other in some sort of organized chaos. The rocks have incredible texture. In the Spirit of Nature - by Bert and Mary Anne Sirkin - PhotoTripUSA.
Star Forming Region S106 Credit & Copyright: CISCO, Subaru 8.3-m Telescope, NAOJ - Explanation: Massive star IRS4 is beginning to spread its wings. Born only about 100,000 years ago, material streaming out from this newborn star has formed the nebula dubbed Sharpless 106 Nebula (S106), pictured above. A large disk of dust and gas orbiting Infrared Source 4 (IRS4), visible in dark red near the image center, gives the nebula an hourglass shape. S106 gas near IRS4 acts as an emission nebula as it emits light after being ionized, while dust far from IRS4 reflects light from the central star and so acts as a reflection nebula. Detailed inspection of this representative color infrared image has revealed hundreds of low-mass brown dwarf stars lurking in the nebula's gas. S106 spans about 2 light-years and lies about 2000 light-years away toward the constellation of Cygnus.

American Purple Gallinule - This was taken in Everglades National Park at the "Anhinga Trail". This Gallinule made a surprise visit - the first one we had ever seen. He (she??) walked across the water plants with it's incredibly large yellow feet looking for food. It was out in the open sun, midday and I was caught with slow film and had to shoot with a 600mm lens at f16/22 (small aperture required for minimal depth of field at the close distance). This required the Gallinule to remain perfectly still for each exposure of about 1/20 second. The slight breeze caused motion in some of the plants in the picture, but in this shot, the Gallinule remained still long enough to stay reasonably sharp.

Star Forming Region Hubble-XCredit: C. R. O'Dell (Vanderbilt Univ.) et al., Hubble Heritage Team, NASA - Explanation: In nearby galaxy NGC 6822, this glowing emission nebula complex surrounds bright, massive, newborn stars. A mere 4 million years young, these stars condensed from the galaxy's interstellar gas and dust clouds. The nebular glow is powered by the bright stars' intense ultraviolet radiation while its shape is sculpted by the interaction of stellar winds and radiation with the immense interstellar clouds themselves. Cataloged as Hubble-X, many skygazers find the appearance of this extragalactic star forming region reminiscent of the most famous stellar nursery in our own galaxy, the Orion Nebula. Hubble-X is intrinsically much brighter than Orion though, and at a distance of 1.6 million light-years it is about 1,000 times farther away. Hubble-X is also about 100 light-years across compared to 10 light-years for the Orion Nebula. Why is it called Hubble-X? X is the Roman numeral 10, this nebula's designation in a catalog of similar objects for galaxy NGC 6822.

Mountains Recede Into Sunset - I have gazed westwards into the Nisqually Valley southeast of Seattle many times from this viewpoint, but on this night the contrast of lovely pink light behind the layers of blue mountains made for a memorable sunset.

Rainier Shines Through Morning Fog - Working full time at my day job doesn't always leave much time for photography, so even though I had to be at work in Seattle by 8:30am the next day, I chose to make the 2 1/2 hour drive the night before to Chinook Pass on the east side of Mount Rainier, where I curled up in the seat of my car for a few hours of sleep before rising at 5am to prepare for this sunrise shot. I set up where I hoped the mountain would show itself despite the heavy fog, and all the effort was more than rewarded as a glowing Mt. Rainier shone through the parting mist.

NEAR Spacecraft Survives Landing on Asteroid Eros Credit: NEAR Project, JHU APL, NASA - Explanation: Yesterday NEAR-Shoemaker became the first spacecraft to land on an asteroid and send signals back from its surface. Since the robot spacecraft was not designed for such a contingency, the success of the landing on asteroid 433 Eros was not assured. Shown above is the last picture taken by NEAR-Shoemaker before its touchdown. The streaking on the lower part of the image was caused by the loss of telemetry as the satellite impacted the surface. The image was taken 130 meters above the surface and spans 6 meters across. Rocks as small as a human hand are visible. As engineers continue to try to communicate with the beached car-sized spacecraft, scientists will work to understand features visible in the highest resolution photographs ever taken of an asteroid.

Near-Shoemaker Views Eros
Credit: NEAR Project, JHU APL, NASA - Explanation: Orbiting asteroid 433 Eros, 145 million miles from Earth, NASA's NEAR spacecraft has been returning stunning views as its year long mission of exploration nears completion. A mosaic of NEAR images recorded at a range of about 127 miles, this picture illustrates some of the amazing contrasts which apparently exist within the domain of this diminutive world. Features as small as 65 feet are visible here, while long shadows emphasize the differences in the cratered regions at the left and smooth grooved terrain at right. Up close, the undulating surface seems flecked with bright deposits and peppered with enormous boulders. Last year, NASA changed the spacecraft name from NEAR to NEAR-Shoemaker in honor of the late Dr. Eugene M. Shoemaker, legendary geologist, comet hunter, and inspirational pioneer in the field of interplanetary science. Tomorrow, NEAR-Shoemaker will complete its scheduled mission as it will be commanded to descend to the surface of the ancient asteroid.

Nashville Four Planet Skyline Credit & Copyright: Larry Koehn - Explanation: So far this February, evening skies have been blessed with a glorious Moon and three bright planets; Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. But just last week, on January 30th, an extreme wide-angle lens allowed astrophotographer Larry Koehn to capture this twilight view of Moon and four planets above Nashville, Tennessee, USA. These major solar system bodies lie along the ecliptic plane and so follow a diagonal line through the picture. Starting near the upper left corner is bright Jupiter, which takes on a slightly triangular shape due to the lens distortion. Just below and right of Jupiter is Saturn. Continuing along the diagonal toward the lower right is an overexposed, six day old Moon and brilliant Venus seemingly embedded in clouds. The fourth planet pictured is Mercury. Notoriously hard to see from planet Earth because it never wanders far from the Sun, Mercury is visible just above the lower right corner. The line from Jupiter to Mercury spans about 92 degrees across the Nashville sky. Authors & editors: Robert Nemiroff (MTU) & Jerry Bonnell (USRA) NASA Technical Rep.: Jay Norris.

Planetary Nebula Mz3: The Ant Nebula Credit: R. Sahai (JPL) et al., Hubble Heritage Team, ESA, NASA - Explanation: Why isn't this ant a big sphere? Planetary nebula Mz3 is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun that is, surely, round. Why then would the gas that is streaming away create an ant-shaped nebula that is distinctly not round? Clues might include the high 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible above at the nebula's center. One possible answer is that Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. Since the central star appears to be so similar to our own Sun, astronomers hope that increased understanding of the history of this giant space ant can provide useful insight into the likely future of our own Sun and Earth.
