This month in space we’ve had a supermoon, Northern Lights, and solar flares uncover face.
Far over a stars in a constellation of Leo (The Lion) is strange universe IC 559.
IC 559 is not your bland galaxy. With a strange figure and splendid blue spattering of stars, it is a fascinating galactic anomaly. It might demeanour like meagre cloud, yet it is in fact full of gas and dirt that is spawning new stars.
Discovered in 1893, IC 559 lacks a exquisite turn coming of some of a galactic peers and not does not heed to a unchanging shape. It is indeed personal as a “type Sm” universe — an strange universe with some justification for a turn structure. (NASA)
This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope picture performed Sep 8, 2014 shows a turn universe famous as PGC 54493, located in a constellation of Serpens (The Serpent). This universe is partial of a universe cluster that has been complicated by astronomers exploring an intriguing materialisation famous as diseased gravitational lensing. This effect, caused by a disproportionate placement of matter (including dim matter) around a Universe, has been explored around surveys such as a Hubble Medium Deep Survey. Dark matter is one of a good mysteries in cosmology. It behaves really differently from typical matter as it does not evacuate or catch light or other forms of electromagnetic appetite hence a tenure “dark”. Even yet we can't observe dim matter directly, we know it exists. One distinguished square of justification for a existence of this puzzling matter is famous as a “galaxy revolution problem”. Galaxies stagger during such speeds and in such a approach that typical matter alone a things we see would not be means to reason them together. The volume of mass that is “missing” visibly is dim matter, that is suspicion to make adult some 27 percent of a sum essence of a Universe, with dim appetite and normal matter creation adult a rest. PGC 55493 has been complicated in tie with an outcome famous as vast shearing. This is a diseased gravitational lensing outcome that creates little distortions in images of apart galaxies. (NASA)
An X1.6 category solar light flashes in a center of a object in this picture taken Sep 10, 2014, in this picture pleasantness of NASA. This picture was prisoner by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory and shows light in a 131 Angstrom wavelength, that is typically colorized in teal. A singular double detonate of magnetically charged solar storms will strike Earth Thursday night and Friday, lifting concerns that GPS signals, radio communications and appetite transmissions could be disrupted, officials pronounced on Sep 11, 2014.

The mortal formula of a absolute supernova blast exhibit themselves in a ethereal tapestry of X-ray light, as seen in this picture from NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory and a European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton.
The picture shows a stays of a supernova that would have been witnessed on Earth about 3,700 years ago. The vestige is called Puppis A, and is around 7,000 light years divided and about 10 light years across. This picture provides a many finish and minute X-ray perspective of Puppis A ever obtained, done by mixing a mosaic of opposite Chandra and XMM-Newton observations. Low-energy X-rays are shown in red, medium-energy X-rays are in immature and high appetite X-rays are colored blue. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
This soft-focus picture taken by a crewmember aboard a International Space Station during Expedition 37 shows a Elba-Follonica-Grosseto-Orbetello area of Italy during night, with moonglint on a surrounding waters. (NASA)
Swirls of immature and red seem in an halo over Whitehorse, Yukon on a night of Sep 3, 2012 in this NASA welfare image. Stargazers opposite a far-reaching swath of a United States could get a singular perspective on Sep 12, 2014 of a northern lights, a colorful vast arrangement routinely usually manifest in distant northern latitudes.
