The raw image taken by NASA Curiosity somewhere in July was hugely discussed in the Facebook group ‘Journey to the Surface of the Mars’.

(14-24 Nov. 1969) --- A very thin, crescent Earth, seen from the Apollo 12 Command and Service Modules (CSM) as NASA's second lunar landing crew returned home from the moon in November 1969. The brightness in the lower left corner of the photograph is a lens flare caused by sunlight reflecting on the window and the lens of the handheld Hasselblad camera.

Some geostationary satellites photographed last night with some airglow

8 October 2015

Quote:
I would assume it is 20x 4min exposures, [edit:] but I'd like to know for sure.

And, if I'm not mistaken, the gif is being animated in reverse (edit: confirmed). OP said they are at 63ºN latitude, so the equator is towards the South. The stars should be moving from left to right.



Cleaned up version


Here, I edited out everything that moved.

First glimpse of Mars flowing water



Quote:
The instrument saw the signatures of magnesium perchlorate, magnesium chlorate and sodium perchlorate—all hydrated salts that require water to form and also contain it.

Few meters wide, hundreds of meters long.

Never heard of "Strawberry Moon", we did have "blackberry week" for the school holidays

Any other names for the Moon In June?

Title Solar eruption larger than Earth

Description
A gigantic ribbon of hot gas bursts upwards from the Sun, guided by a giant loop of invisible magnetism. This remarkable image was captured on 27 July 1999 by SOHO, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory. Earth is superimposed for comparison and shows that from top to bottom the loop of gas, or prominence, extends about 35 times the diameter of our planet into space.
