Clearest images of Jupiter ever

The Clearest Images of Jupiter ever taken

These beautifully real images are some of the closest images of Jupiter. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System. It is a gas giant with a mass more than two and a half times that of all the other planets in the Solar System combined, but slightly less than one-thousandth the mass of the Sun. The original image was captured by JunoCam, the camera on NASA’s Juno mission in orbit around Jupiter. This image was taken on Juno’s 22nd close pass by Jupiter on Sept. 12, 2019 with image processing done by Prateek.

Near M94

Today Chandra is studying stars in Canes Venatici. Nearby in the sky in M94, new stars are forming rapidly within a bright band called a starburst ring. The ring is likely caused by a pressure wave moving outward from the galaxy’s center, compressing gas & dust in outer regions. @chandraxray

Inside Rosette Nebula

Here’s a look inside the Rosette Nebula (Sh2-275). This is SHO palette with RGB stars.

TON 618: a black hole

“TON 618, That already has the size of a hundred of Solar Systems”.

The black hole that is already the size of 100 solar systems and continues to grow.

It has been devouring matter for more than a billion years and is now the largest cosmic object in the known to universe.

The black holes are cosmic objects possessing intensive gravity that traps close matter, which includes enormous clouds of gas and stars. This ability to ‘feed’ allows them to increase their mass and size, yet some have grown so much that they challenge the knowledge of astrophysicist. That’s the case of TON 618.

Most black holes originate from star death and have between a few and a hundred times the mass of the Sun (solar mass). Meanwhile, the so-called supermassive black holes have between hundreds of billions of solar masses and are located at the center of each galaxy.
The origin of these is not quite clear yet.

Even more mysterious is the existence of ultra-massive black holes such as TON 618, since their decomposed mass cannot be explained merely by accumulation of material or fusion with other black holes.

But TON 618 doesn’t just stand out for it’s mass. It is also the largest object in the known universe.

100 Total Dark Solar System.

A black hole is basically a dark sphere. The surface of this sphere is the horizon of events, the border from which nothing, not even light, can escape to powerful gravity.

The distance of the event horizon to the center of TON 618 is 1,303 astronomical units or UA (an UA equals the distance from Earth to the Sun). Therefore, the black hole circumference has an area of 5.3 million UA2.

In comparison, the imaginary circumference of our solar system (taking as it’s edge to the far far out orbit, dwarf planet three times farther than Pluto) has an area of 54,000 UA2.

This means they could fit almost 100 solar system alone in the dark silhouette of TON 618.

TON 618 is at the center of a galaxy where matter is crawling around it. The feast
