This is an image of the sun captured on April 17, 2016. The sunspot in this shot to the upper right is AR2529 and shows some nice plages and filaments around it. Some nice prominences were visible along the solar limb.

Now maybe we can actually capture more images!! M3 is a globular star cluster located approximately 33,900 light years away from Earth in the constellation Canes Venatici. It is made up of about 500,000 stars, making it one of the largest and brightest clusters, and is estimated to be 8 billion years old. It was discovered by Charles Messier on May 3, 1764 and around 1784 was resolved into stars by William Herschel. M3 has an apparent magnitude of 6.2, which makes it difficult to see with the naked eye, even under dark conditions. The small galaxy located near the 2:00 position in this image is NGC 5263.

NGC 3242, commonly known as the Ghost of Jupiter, is a planetary nebula located in the constellation Hydra. William Herschel discovered the nebula on February 7, 1785, and cataloged it as H IV.27. John Herschel observed it from the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, in the 1830s, and numbered it as h 3248, and included it in the 1864 General Catalogue as GC 2102; this became NGC 3242 in J. L. E. Dreyer's New General Catalogue of 1888. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13713-ngc-3242-from-the-city.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13713-ngc-3242-from-the-city.html Sun, 03 Apr 2016 14:40:24 -0400 jupiter rgb <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13712-jupiter-rgb.html"><img title="jupiter_rgb3.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/jupiter_rgb3.jpg" alt="jupiter_rgb3.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: winston<br /><br />Description}: jupiter rgb @ 2 min each filter derotate with winjupos 2016-03-30<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13712-jupiter-rgb.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13712-jupiter-rgb.html Fri, 01 Apr 2016 09:21:09 -0400 M-96 from the City <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13711-m-96-from-the-city.html"><img title="M-96_20160327_C-8_f61.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/M-96_20160327_C-8_f61.jpg" alt="M-96_20160327_C-8_f61.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Kenn<br /><br />Description}: Taken from home less than 1/4 mile from a Ralphs Shopping Center. Messier 96 (also known as M96 or NGC 3368) is an intermediate spiral galaxy about 35 million light-years away in the constellation Leo(the Lion). It was discovered by French astronomer Pierre Méchain on March 20, 1781. After communicating his finding, French astronomer Charles Messier confirmed the finding four days later and added it to his catalogue of nebulous objects. Finding this object is extremely difficult with binoculars. With a telescope of 25.4 cm (10.0 in) aperture, the galaxy is visible as a 3 × 5 arcminute halo with a brighter core region http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13711-m-96-from-the-city.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13711-m-96-from-the-city.html Mon, 28 Mar 2016 14:47:10 -0400 M-96 from the City <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13710-m-96-from-the-city.html"><img title="M-96_20160327_C-8_f61.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/M-96_20160327_C-8_f61.jpg" alt="M-96_20160327_C-8_f61.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Kenn<br /><br />Description}: Taken from home less than 1/4 mile from a Ralphs Shopping Center.

This bright yellowish, fan-shaped structure is a so-called Herbig-Haro object, which means it is a newborn star (in this case PV Cephei) shooting out two jets of gas in opposite directions from it's north and south poles. In this image we can only see one of the jets as the other one is mostly obscured by dark molecular dust. This object catalogued HH215 or GN 20.45.4, is actually changing in intensity over only a few years, which is quite fast in astronomical timescales. Luckily, the HH215 was really bright at the time of these exposures. IN images shot as close as 2012 the fan is much less visible. The dark and dusty nebulae stretching downwards from the center of the image is called LBN 468 and contains amongst others LDN1158, LDN1157, LDN1148, LDN1155 and Rno 124 Cepheus. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13696-gyulbudaghian-s-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13696-gyulbudaghian-s-nebula.html Wed, 16 Mar 2016 20:03:08 -0400 Gyulbudaghian's nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13695-gyulbudaghian-s-nebula.html"><img title="LBN468_1200.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/LBN468_1200.jpg" alt="LBN468_1200.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Ginge<br /><br />Description}: Slightly above and to the right of the center of this image is an object called Gyulbudaghian's Nebula, named after Armenian astronomer Armen Gyuldubaghian who discovered it in 1977.
