Have you ever played a connect-the-dots game? Recently, astronomers noticed a mysterious spiral pattern hiding around a baby star. But instead of dots, the pattern was made up by a strange kind of physics phenomenon called masers!
In 2021, NASA’s Fermi & Swift space telescopes simultaneously picked up a powerful flash of gamma rays – named GRB 211211A, that was unusually close to our planet, only about a billion light-years away. So this GRB is one of the last GRBs to happen.
Astronomers have just captured a new image of a beautiful sort of “dance” between two galaxies: the spiral NGC 1512, it’s the pretty, large, barred spiral in the picture, and its small neighbor NGC 1510.
When a red supergiant goes supernova, something special may happen: a brief but brilliant flash of light might be seen before the full explosion! more at #365DaysOfAstro @unawe #spacescoop
