It needs to be seen in full screen, HD, I'm lucky I can do that from my computer. I grew up in the Southern Hemisphere, the night skies are something else over there :-)

@Adriana - This is the best time-lapse of the Milky Way I've ever seen! And it sort of fulfills my dream of seing the night skies of the southern hemisphere.

Thnx.

The gorgeous night-sky time lapse animations keep on coming: this one, using images by Colin Legg, shows the sky over the Australian Outback.

Peculiar Galaxies of Arp 273 
Credit: NASAESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI / AURA)

Explanation: The spiky stars in the foreground of this sharp cosmic portrait are well within our own Milky Way Galaxy. The two eye-catching galaxies lie far beyond the Milky Way, at a distance of over 300 million light-years. Their distorted appearance is due to gravitational tides as the pair engage in close encounters. Cataloged as Arp 273 (also as UGC 1810), the galaxies do look peculiar, but interacting galaxies are now understood to be common in the universe. In fact, the nearby large spiral Andromeda Galaxy is known to be some 2 million light-years away and approaching the Milky Way. Arp 273 may offer an analog of their far future encounter. Repeated galaxy encounters on acosmic timescale can ultimately result in a merger into a single galaxy of stars. From our perspective, the bright cores of the Arp 273 galaxies are separated by only a little over 100,000 light-years. The release of this stunning vista celebrates the 21st anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope in orbit.

From NASA: A beautiful video showing a full side to side passing of an active region and the movement of sunspots as seen by the HMI instrument.

The Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager extends the capabilities of the SOHO/MDI instrument with continual full-disk coverage at higher spatial resolution and new vector magnetogram capabilities.

All beautiful, and I agree with Michel, the time lapse photography is awesome.
Comment by Michel on April 18, 2011 at 12:01pm
@doone - that is some amazing time-lapse photography!
