The Black Dragon Nebula (IC 4678) occupies space between us and a dense spiral arm of our galaxy. The nebula, a huge complex of gas and dust, creates a distinct silhoutte as dust in the foreground blots out light from background stars. IC 4678 lies about 5,000 light years from Earth in the constellation of Sagittarius, near the well-known Trifid and Lagoon Nebulas.

This is something new to me. Photographing star clusters. But it looks awesome. This is the Chi Persi and h Persi double cluster. In small telescopes the clusters appears as a beautiful assemblage of bright stars located in a rich star field.

Mount Pleasant Radio Telescope Observatory

The University of Tasmania’s Mount Pleasant Radio Telescope Observatory under a brilliant night sky, thanks to @miaglastonbury.

Grote Reber, an American pioneer of radio astronomy in the 1930s, made Tasmania his home in the 1950s because of its unique location at high magnetic latitude. He settled on the outskirts of Bothwell, a rural town 1 hour north-west of Hobart, and spent the next forty years working in partnership with the university and undertaking world-leading work in radio astronomy.
