M45: The Pleiades (The Seven Sisters) Exposure : 18 x 300s subs Gain 11.0 Total Integration : 1.5hrs The Pleidies a magnificent open star cluster contains hot B type stars located in the constellation Taurus (The Bull) and at a distance of only 444ly from Earth it is the nearest star cluster that is obvious and visible to the naked eye. When observed it resembles a smaller version of the Big Dipper embedded in a beautiful sea of blue nebulosity. Dominated by hot blue and luminous stars it is fairly young at 100 million years and the cluster is predicted to last for another 250 million years before dispersing due to gravitational interactions with its galactic neighborhood. #nebula #astrophotographer #astrophotography #telescope #starrynight #deepsky #stargazing #solarsystem #milkywaychasers #flickr #universetoday #astronomy #longexpo #nightshooters #altairhypercam183c #astrography #nightscaper #nightsky #cosmos #astronomia #milkyway #nightscape #astrobin #astrobackyard #backyardastronomy #lightpollution #lazyshutters #ourplanetdaily #explore #universe

Too much 💡⠀ ⠀ Astronaut pictures like this one taken by @astro_alex_esa from the @iss, are used by citizen science project Cities at Night to help counter light pollution.⠀ The end result of Cities at Night will be map of Earth that is accessible to anyone. Researchers want to use the map to locate energy inefficiencies in urban cities to urge dimming of the lights. This would also reclaim some of the night sky for urban dwellers to enjoy.⠀ ⠀ Go to our @instagram Story to learn more about this project.⠀ ⠀ 📸@europeanspaceagency / @Nasa

Travelling is often poetic, isn’t is? It gives me freedom to think in another way and prioritise differently. That said happy to be back in my studio and home for a couple of days before leaving again. (Snapshot from on the road last couple of days). #snapshot #night #driving #carview #emptyroad #highway #travelling #nolightpollution #lightpollution #light #lightanddark #roadmarkings #road
