Comet Lovejoy before a Globular Star Cluster



Comet Lovejoy has become visible to the unaided eye. To see the comet, just go outside an hour or so after sunset and look for a fuzzy patch to the right of Orion's belt. Binoculars and a star chart may help. Pictured here, Comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) was captured three days ago passing nearly in front of M79, the globular star cluster visible as the bright spot slightly above and to the left of the comet's green-hued coma. The nucleus of Comet Lovejoy is a giant dirty iceberg that is shedding gas into a long and intricate ion tail, extending across the image, as it nears the Sun. The comet is expected to become even easier to spot for northern observers during January, as it is rises earlier and, hopefully, continues to brighten.

BEKAA VALLEY, LEBANON: The little Syrian boy sits proudly next to his snowman and smiles for CNN’s Christian Streib. He has no coat, gloves or hat to protect him from the freezing cold, but for a moment he is distracted from the harsh reality of life inside a makeshift refugee camp in Lebanon. We do not know his name, but he is one of 842,000 refugees the U.N. says are spending the winter in Lebanon after fleeing a brutal three-year civil war in Syria.



That smile is worth the whole world.



the contrast here is so powerful

Previsões de Nostradamus para 2015




Antes de mais, quero desejar um feliz ano novo a todos os leitores do blog ouniversoparanormal, que vêm, desde sempre, a acompanhar cada uma destas postagens assombrosas que vos trago.

Como o fim de 2014 está muito próximo, nesta postagem vou dar-vos a conhecer as previsões feitas pelo astrólogo, médico e alquimista francês, Nostradamus (1503-1566). Segundo os pesquisadores das suas profecias, 2015 será um ano muito difícil para a humanidade, carregado de acontecimentos terríveis.

Nostradamus afirma que, em 2015, todos os impostos serão abolidos e que serão organizadas tentativas de assassinato aos líderes das quatro grande potências mundiais. Outras previsões afirmam que os mortos ressuscitarão, será encontrada uma receita para prolongar a vida (graças à qual os humanos poderão viver até aos 200 anos). A Alemanha e a França enfrentarão uma grande crise e a Itália será atingida pela erupção do Vesúvio; as pessoas começarão a falar a linguagem dos animais; os casais necessitarão de uma autorização especial para ter um bebé (em alguns países); ocorrerá um grande terramoto na América, mas local do epicentro não foi divulgado, o que provocará uma grave crise humanitária.

De acordo com a comunidade científica, o mundo enfrentará novas descobertas científicas e a previsão mais inexplicável é a que afirma a ressureição dos mortos.

Será que alguma destas profecias irá acontecer mesmo? Esperem até para o ano, já não falta muito.

Hubble Sees an Ancient Globular Cluster



This image captures the stunning NGC 6535, a globular cluster 22,000 light-years away in the constellation of Serpens (The Serpent) that measures one light-year across. Globular clusters are tightly bound groups of stars which orbit galaxies. The large mass in the rich stellar centre of the globular cluster pulls the stars inward to form a ball of stars. The word globulus, from which these clusters take their name, is Latin for small sphere. Globular clusters are generally very ancient objects formed around the same time as their host galaxy. To date, no new star formation has been observed within a globular cluster, which explains the abundance of aging yellow stars in this image, most of them containing very few heavy elements. NGC 6535 was first discovered in 1852 by English astronomer John Russell Hind. The cluster would have appeared to Hind as a small, faint smudge through his telescope. Now, over 160 years later, instruments like the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on the NASA/ European Space Agency (ESA) Hubble Space Telescope allow us to marvel at the cluster and its contents in greater detail.
