  • The Carpenter, Shih, sees an extremely large tree which he refuses to cut down, telling his apprentice “Forget it – say no more!” said the carpenter. “It’s a worthless tree! Make boats out of it and they’d sink; make coffins and they’d rot in no time; make vessels and they’d break at once. Use it for doors and it would sweat sap like pine; use it for posts and the worms would eat them up. It’s not a timber tree – there’s nothing it can be used for. That’s how it got to be that old!” After Carpenter Shih returns home and falls asleep for the night, that same large tree intrudes on Carpenter Shih’s dreams and speaks to him: “What are you comparing me with? Are you comparing me with those useful trees? The cherry apple, the pear, the orange, the citron, the rest of those fructiferous trees and shrubs – as soon as their fruit is ripe, they are torn apart and subjected to abuse. Their big limbs are broken off, their little limbs are yanked around. Their utility makes life miserable for them, and so they don’t get to finish out the years Heaven gave them, but are cut off in mid-journey. They bring it on themselves – the pulling and tearing of the common mob. And it’s the same way with all other things. “As for me, I’ve been trying a long time to be of no use, and though I almost died, I’ve finally got it. This is of great use to me. If I had been of some use, would I ever have grown this large? Moreover you and I are both of us things. What’s the point of this – things condemning things? You, a worthless man about to die-how do you know I’m a worthless tree?” 4th Century BCE (Pic: @travis_craig_photographyhawaii ) # Follow us to be featured . . via @astronomicwonders . . . #moon #galaxy #stars #astronaut #hubble #iss #astrophotography #astronomia #space #milkywaychasers #spacestation #constellation #super_longexpo #milkywaycake #exploration #milkywayphoto #milkywaycases #Spacegram #star #solarsystem #planets #nightphotography #elitelongexposures

  • Captured last April after sunset on a Chilean winter's night an exceptionally intense airglow flooded this scene. The panoramic skyscape is also filled with stars, clusters, and nebulae along the southern Milky Way including the Large and Small Magellanic clouds. Originating at an altitude similar to aurorae, the luminous airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light through chemical excitation. Commonly recorded with a greenish tinge by sensitive digital cameras, both red and green airglow emission here is predominately from atmospheric oxygen atoms at extremely low densities and has often been present in southern hemisphere nights during the last few years. Like the Milky Way on that dark night the strong airglow was visible to the eye, but seen without color. Mars, Saturn, and bright star Antares in Scorpius form the celestial triangle anchoring the scene on the left. The road leads toward the 2,600 meter high mountain Cerro Paranal and the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescopes.

  • UGC 12591: The Fastest Rotating Galaxy Known. Why does this galaxy spin so fast? To start, even identifying which type of galaxy UGC 12591 is difficult -- it has dark dust lanes like a spiral galaxy but a large diffuse bulge of stars like a lenticular. Surprisingly observations show that UGC 12591 spins at about 480 km/sec, almost twice as fast as our Milky Way, and the fastest rotation rate yet measured. The mass needed to hold together a galaxy spinning this fast is several times the mass of our Milky Way Galaxy. Progenitor scenarios for UGC 12591 include slow growth by accreting ambient matter, or rapid growth through a recent galaxy collision or collisions -- future observations may tell. The light we see today from UGC 12591 left about 400 million years ago, when trees were first developing on Earth.

  • 18 Sep 2018. Planets on a placid river 💡 I couldn’t feel any breeze at all while standing here on the Silo Farm Bridge, over the Tuross River, back in early September of 2018. There must have been some movement of air because while I was setting up to photograph this serene scene, a small cloud floated across the lower part of the sky and into my field of view. You can almost imagine that it’s a white pillow on which someone has set a giant pearl for display. The “pearl” in this case is the planet Venus, very bright, very white, and very close to the horizon. This quiet stretch of the Tuross River provided an almost-perfect mirror to reflect Venus’ orb, as well as that of the planet Jupiter, up and to the right of our pearl of the night. 🌌🔭 Almost lost in the glow and glare of the Milky Way’s galactic core area is another of our Solar System’s more massive planets, the lovely Saturn. Above the Milky Way and those three planets is Mars, noticeably more orange than the others and possibly enjoying not having to share its part of the sky with them. The God of War, as Mars is known, has to stand out, after all! The distinct while pillar of light stretching from below Venus and up towards Mars is the Zodiacal Light, a prominent feature of the after-dusk skies of the southern hemisphere at this time of year. 📷 I used two LED banks, fitted with “warm” colour filters, at either end of the bridge, to provide illumination on the river banks and the frontmost trees. This single image that you’re looking at is made up of eleven individual overlapping photos that have been combined by a process called “stitching”. I took each of those eleven shots with the following equipment and settings: Canon EOS 6D Mk II camera, Samyang 14mm XP lens @ f/2.8, using a 20-second exposure @ ISO 6400. • • • • • @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 @photographerfocus # Follow us if you liked this. . . via @nightscapades . . . #cosmos #astrophysics #astronaut #universetoday #nightscaper #astronomer #spacestation #milkywayphoto #rocket #milkywaychaser #milkywaycases #super_longexpo #nightphotography #constellation #milkywaygalaxy #timelessuniverse #globe

  • Вам возможно могло надоесть это озеро, название которого я б не выговорил даже если б знал, с этими звёздами и этим псевдо полярным сиянием, поэтому я подумал, что данное фото могло бы стать интереснее, если б, например, на озере этом когда-то произошли жуткие события и я сейчас описал вам легенду! А легенда такова, что именно здесь, на берегу сего водоёма находилась хижина одного одинокого финского изобретателя-романтика. Он жил уединённо, но всегда мечтал повстречать красавицу, с которой бы разделил свою скромную обитель и обрёл любовь. И однажды судьба уготовила ему желанный дар! В лесу заблудилась прекрасная путница... Она блуждала в лесах 3 дня, была голодна, замёрзла и промокла. Ещё её изрядно погрызли оленьи кровососки😊 На 4й день она набрела на хижину нашего героя. Он приютил её, накормил, согрел и был очень любезен)) Так как всю её семью загрызли волки в лесу, то ей всё равно некуда было идти и оставалось лишь остаться жить у своего спасителя😊 Но ей там было так скучно, что через неделю она померла от этой своей скуки😄 Юноша, чьё имя, кстати, было Фредрик Идестам, убивался горем почти месяц, выпил ящик болотной браги и поклялся себе, что больше никогда не даст никому скучать! В общем избегая всех деталей, оказалось что местность эта в финской провинции именовалась деревней Нокиа, а герой наш создал не что иное как первый телефон данной марки со встроенной игрой змейкой😊 Я мог плохо запомнить подробности, а мог просто тупо всё это выдумать, поэтому не стал бы даже пытаться запомнить ничего из данного текста и просто перемотал потраченное время вспять 😄 #МлечныйПуть #АврораБореалис #СеверноеСияние #НочноеНебо #ДлиннаяВыдержка #auroraborealis #nothernlights  #MilkyWay #nightphotography #nightsky #longexposure #longexposureoftheday #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #long_exposure #super_longexpo #canonrussia #canonfinland #VisitFinland #visitscandinavia #ig_suomi #ig_finland #Карелия #northkarelia #natgeotravel #natgeopix #fisheye #astrophotography #aurorahunters

  • The tower of interstellar gas that you are looking at no longer exists. As strange and confusing as it sounds, The famous Pillars Of Creation (within the Eagle Nebula) are believed to have perished a mere 6000 years ago. Considering that the Pillars Of Creation lie 7000 light years away and that light travels at a finite speed, one could estimate that it would take another 1000 years for humanity to be able to observe any destruction or change within the Pillars. Scientists became aware of the eventual death once images taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope discovered a cloud of hot dust within the general vicinity of the pillars. Nicolas Flagey accounted this to be the shockwave produced by a supernova that probably washed the pillars away like a tsunami. After discovering that the Pillars Of Creation have been almost completely destroyed, it's easy to think of the Pillars as weak, perhaps even small. The left Pillar is estimated to be 4 light years in length with the finger like protrusions at the summit of the clouds being larger than our entire solar system. Knowing that this picture is literally a gaze into the past is incredible and terrifying. The universe is undeniably beautiful and the unpredictable nature of it makes it even more entrancing. # ➡️Follow us for more!⬅️ . . via @astronomyfix . . . #universetoday #astronaut #astrophysics #astrophoto #hubble #nightsky #cosmos #astronomi #milkyway #milkywaystars #endeavour #longexposure #milkywaycases #exploration #milkywaychasers #constellation #super_longexpo #nightlaunch #ig_astrophotography #fantastic_universe #spacestation #night #milkywaygalaxy #wotn_milkyway

  • Does the Sun return to the same spot on the sky every day at the same time? No. A more visual answer to that question is an analemma, a composite image taken from the same spot at the same time over the course of a year. The featured analemma was composed from images taken every few days at 4 pm near the village of Callanish in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, UK. In the foreground are the Callanish Stones, a stone circle built around 2700 BC during humanity's Bronze Age. It is not known if the placement of the Callanish Stones has or had astronomical significance. The ultimate causes for the figure-8 shape of this an all analemmas are the tilt of the Earth axis and the ellipticity of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. At the solstices, the Sun will appear at the top or bottom of an analemma. Equinoxes, however, correspond to analemma middle points -- not the intersection point. Today at 1:54 am (UT) is the equinox ("equal night"), when day and night are equal over all of planet Earth. Many cultures celebrate a change of season at an equinox.

The clouds bend with the stars the sharp colors layer with dull dark As orange mingles with indigo catching the breath of the few to witiness this spectacle at the peak of its crescendo . With the end of another day is the hope of a new beginning to wash the face of our lives enabling us to try once again. . — Unknown — . ✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪✪ . Location: Punggol Beach Massacre Site, Punggol Settlement, 3 Punggol Point Road, Singapore. . Description: This beach brings back grim memories to older generations because during the World War II in 1942, 400 Chinese civilians were massacred by the Japanese soldiers. The Punggol Beach was one of the three main sites in Singapore where the Sook Ching Massacre took place. The killngs were done on a large-scale basis, as the Japanese sent many men who were suspected of being anti-Japanese to be shot dead and exterminated. The victims who perished were hastily discarded into the sea or left abandoned on the foreshore. . Located at Punggol Point, this place is also known as Punggol Beach Massacre. The location has been marked as a national heritage site. . Resources: ▪ Street Directory - Travel Guide ▪ Wikipedia ▪ Roots.sg
