She discovered a new kind of astronomical object in 2007 using the Galaxy Zoo. The class of objects is now called officially ´Hanny´s voorwerp (HsV)´ which is a great achievement I think. One hypothesis suggests that HsV consists of remnants of a small galaxy showing the impact of radiation from a bright quasar event that occurred in the center of IC 2497 about 100,000 years before how it is observed today. The quasar event is thought to have stimulated the bright emission that characterizes HsV. The quasar might have switched off in the last 200,000 years and is not visible in the available images. One possible explanation for the missing light-source is that illumination from the assumed quasar was a transient phenomenon. In this case, its effects on HsV would be still visible because of the distance of several tens of thousands of light years between HsV and the quasar in the nearby galaxy: HsV would show a &quot;light echo&quot; or &quot;ghost image&quot; of events that are older than those currently seen in the galaxy. I know Hanny for quite some time now and we discussed several times about imaging the Voorwerp sometime using my own telescope. Until now it hasn´t been done yet, but as I was working with some datasets lately I promised her to check to see if there were any images anywhere in other databases, because there are no really good images of the Voorwerp yet, except for one Hubble image. I started looking in the datasets and found that the Canadian-French-Hawaiian Telescope (CFHT) which data archive is being run by the Canadian Astronomy Data Center (CADC) had a set of images of the Voorwerp at a reasonable scale. I decided to integrate the Hubble imagery with this dataset to see if I could get a bit more widefield view of the Voorwerp. The result is shown here, and I think it's a bit of a premiere, because, as far as I have found, there is no more detailed image of the Voorwerp yet with this field of view. Data sources: Megaprime data from the CFHT (0,18&quot;/pixel) and HST data (0,05&quot;/pixel). Credits: Hubble Legacy Archive / CFHT / CADC processing: André van der Hoeven (&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.astro-photo.nl&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;www.astro-photo.nl&lt;/a&gt;) This data was generated using the facilities of the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre operated by the National Research Council of Canada with the support of the Canadian Space Agency. Based on observations made with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, and obtained from the Hubble Legacy Archive, which is a collaboration between the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI/NASA), the Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility (ST-ECF/ESA) and the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC/NRC/CSA). http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ic-catalog/p13085-ic2497-hanny.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ic-catalog/p13085-ic2497-hanny.html Sun, 25 Jan 2015 07:39:53 -0500 Iris Nebula - NGC 7023 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/nebula/p13084-iris-nebula-ngc-7023.html"><img title="Iris-130-Howard1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/745/thumbs/Iris-130-Howard1.jpg" alt="Iris-130-Howard1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: alhoward<br /><br />Description}: Telescope: Astro-Physics 130GT, f6.3 Mount: AP900 Camera: FLI PL16803 Exposure: L:R:G:B 120:90:90:90 minutes, 6.5 hrs total Binning: ALL Unbinned Software: MaximDL, CCD Stack2, Photoshop CS6, PixInsight 8 Locations: Yosemite NP Glacier Point, CA Dates: August 22 &amp;

Ptolemy described it in the second century AD as the “little cloud following the stinger of Scorpius”, and if it were not the southernmost object in Messier’s catalog, it would likely be better known to the general public. To the upper left of M7 is the tiny red star cluster NGC 6453, located 38,000 light years away. To the bottom right of M7 is the spares cluster Trumpler 30, located over 3,000 light years away. Several lanes of dark interstellar dust obscure light from the stars beyond, including dark nebula B287 to the immediate right of M7.
