Kept an eye on Arora watch but the were saying that it was travelling in the wrong direction (which I don't quite get).
It basically didn't come this far down.
Looks like it would have been amazing if you were in Norway, Iceland and Canada though.
Last night was just too cloudy either way to see anything.
And then there's of course my own theory of progression which briefly and to the point states that all elements in the universe strive for immunity through the principle of survival of the fittest, meaning that the universe will probably end with something absurd, like flatness at absolute zero, and possibly containing hyper immune patterns constructed through time, pressure and chance for whatever reason. It was written in this incarnation some 10 years ago, but dates all the way back to when I was a teen. So it's a bit high flying in this version as I remember it.
This new image of the Antennae Galaxies shows obvious signs of chaos. Clouds of gas are seen in bright pink and red, surrounding the bright flashes of blue star-forming regions — some of which are partially obscured by dark patches of dust. The rate of star formation is so high that the Antennae Galaxies are said to be in a state of starburst, a period in which all of the gas within the galaxies is being used to form stars. This cannot last forever and neither can the separate galaxies; eventually the nuclei will coalesce, and the galaxies will begin their retirement together as one large elliptical galaxy.
This image uses visible and near-infrared observations from Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), along with some of the previously-released observations from Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).
The UN outer space treaty states that no government can claim interstellar objects, but it says nothing about private ownership. So I claimed all known galaxies in 2006, except the milkyway - who wants that shithole anyway. So yea, they're mine.
And they're not for sale at this point, but you're welcome to look - no touchy.
