Orion: Belt, Flame, and Horsehead


What surrounds the famous belt stars of Orion? A deep exposure shows everything from dark nebula to star clusters, all embedded in an extended patch of gaseous wisps in the greater Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. The brightest three stars, appearing diagonally on the left of the featured image are indeed the famous three stars that make up the belt of Orion. Just below Alnitak, the lowest of the three belt stars, is the Flame Nebula, glowing with excited hydrogen gas and immersed in filaments of dark brown dust. Just to the right of Alnitak lies the Horsehead Nebula, a dark indentation of dense dust that has perhaps the most recognized nebular shapes on the sky. The dark molecular cloud, roughly 1,500 light years distant, is cataloged as Barnard 33 and is seen primarily because it is backlit by the nearby massive star Sigma Orionis. The Horsehead Nebula will slowly shift its apparent shape over the next few million years and will eventually be destroyed by the high-energy starlight.

The Negro Seaman Acts

skjam:

historical-nonfiction:

These were laws passed in South Carolina, which allowed people to imprison free African-American sailors while their ships were docked in South Carolina. In fact, they were required to be jailed for the duration of the vessel’s visit! The captain had to pay their jail fees to get them out. If the captain refused to pay the jail fees, the sailors could be sold into slavery.

The US Circuit Court and the US Attorney General found the law unconstitutional. South Carolina did not care. This law was on the books in South Carolina from 1822 to 1863.

I t also applied to British citizens of African descent, which did not please Her Majesty’s Government.  http://ift.tt/2qRJfIH
