APOD: Triple Transit and Mutual Events (2021 Aug 21)

Explanation: These three panels feature the Solar System's ruling gas giant Jupiter on August 15 as seen from Cebu City, Philippines, planet Earth. On that date the well-timed telescopic views detail some remarkable performances, transits and mutual events, by Jupiter's Galilean moons. In the top panel, Io is just disappearing into Jupiter's shadow at the far right, but the three other large Jovian moons appear against the planet's banded disk. Brighter Europa and darker Ganymede are at the far left, also casting their two shadows on the gas giant's cloud tops. Callisto is below and right near the planet's edge, the three moons in a triple transit across the face of Jupiter. Moving to the middle panel, shadows of Europa and Ganymede are still visible near center but Ganymede has occulted or passed in front of Europa. The bottom panel captures a rare view of Jovian moons in eclipse while transiting Jupiter, Ganymede's shadow falling on Europa itself. From planet Earth's perspective, similar mutual events, when Galilean moons occult and eclipse each other, can be seen every six years or so when Jupiter is near its own equinox.

Crescent Moon - Member Jim Sentowski took this photo of the crescent Moon showing the effect of the smoke from the Canadian forest fires. It turned a normally white moon into an orange moon which resembles the planet Mars.

APOD: Alphonsus and Arzachel (2021 Jul 17)
Image Credit & Copyright: Noel Donnard
https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap210717.html

Explanation: Point your telescope at tonight's first quarter Moon. Along the terminator, the shadow line between night and day, you might find these two large craters staring back at you with an owlish gaze. Alphonsus (left) and Arzachel are ancient impact craters on the north eastern shores of Mare Nubium, the lunar Sea of Clouds. The larger Alphonsus is over 100 kilometers in diameter. A low sun angle highlights the crater's sharp 1.5 kilometer high central peak in bright sunlight and dark shadow. Scouting for potential Apollo moon landing sites, the Ranger 9 spacecraft returned closeup photographs of Alphonsus before it crashed in the crater just northeast (left) of its central mountain in 1965. Alpetragius, between Alphonsus and Arzachel, is the small crater with the deeply shadowed floor and overly large central peak.

The probe flew closer to Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, than any other spacecraft in more than two decades, offering dramatic glimpses of both the icy orb and the gas giant.

ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY.

This photo of the Veil Nebula took many nights to complete.

Each clear night gave me another chance to collect light on this stunning supernova remnant.

After hours of capturing and processing the data, I am left with this.

A dazzling reminder of what lies beyond our world.

Another fantastic image from member Rodrigo Roesch . Here's what he says about it. "Attached is my last project. This is the WR-134. It is a combination of OIII, Ha and some RGB for the star color. The idea was to pull the bubble around the WR star which is mostly OIII. I found it very hard to do it since it is very faint and the stars can easily overwhelm the field. I added 12h of OIII, 5h of Ha and 1h of color with the RASA
Hope you like it"
