Interstellar dust wanders in the cosmos aimlessly. Speeds are unimaginable. Yet every time I watch it all seems incredibly still.

The famous Pleiades (above), a piece of the red California Nebula (below) and many, many dark and cold nebulae.

Shot with: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV - Samyang 135 f2.0 @ f2.8 - Skywatcher HEQ5

Exciting! Another AAPOD conquired!
This time the "Astronomy Picture Of the Day" is the conjunction between the Moon and Jupiter (bottom right) of a few months ago. By zooming, and with a nice pair of new eyes, you should be able to see Jupiter's satellites too.
This picture is an average of 11 different photographs taken to capture both the bright details of the Moon and the less bright ones of Jupiter and his companions.

Today my old Comet 45P is the "Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day". Honestly this is an immense honor for me. And now let's focus on NASA APOD. Stay tuned ;)

Two weeks ago, one of the most spectacular astronomical events of these years: the total solar eclipse. I was not physically present, but I was there with all the instruments at my disposal.
Here is my timelapse from raw shots acquired by NASA PROBA 2 satellite in the ultraviolet spectrum (17,4nm). The acquisitions in this wavelength allow us to observe all those surfaces that have an average temperature of 1 million degrees... the Sun is slightly hot uh?

A timelapse showing the sunset some hours before the June solstice day (or Summer Solstice). The solstice is the time when the Sun reaches the point of maximum or minimum altitude in its apparent motion along the ecliptic. That is why, for us in the Northern Hemisphere, today (maximum altitude) is the longest day of the year.
This translates into more solar energy on the ground and thus the opening of the summer season.
By contrast for the southern hemisphere the Sun is at lower altitudes: winter season is beginning for them (winter solstice).

The beautiful monochromatic shades of something that will never leave us.
A 70 megapixel four panel mosaic of our home: the Milky Way.
The field of view is huge. You can see dozens of objects usually observed by astronomers like nebulae, globular clusters, open clusters and Saturn (that bright spot on the right bottom corner).

Taking one of the Milky Way mosaic panels I'm working on. I decided to use my beloved Canon 50 mm f1.8 STM closed to f3.2 to reduce chromatic aberrations. On the right you can see the guide scope in action. We will see... Stay tuned ;)

One year ago one of the most beautiful astronomical events of 2016 (May 9): the transit of Mercury. 
A transit occur when an inner planet (Mercury or Venus) pass between the Sun and us. The entire phenomenon took more than 7-8 hours.
Thanks to this type of phenomenon we can realize the size of bodies we have on our heads. Note that the Earth has a diameter about twice that of Mercury (respectively 12700 and 4800 km).

These fascinating plasma arches that connect clouds and ground can emits an electric current up to 200,000 Ampere.
Think that only 0.020 Ampere are enough to immobilize muscles of any human being. 
About 1.5 billion lightning strikes caused by thunderstorms and other natural phenomena are discharged on the ground every year.

A small fishing boat leaves the coasts of Dalvíkurbyggð (Dalvik for friends) in search of fish. In this icelandic little town all the inhabitants (about 2000 in total) spend their lives fishing. 
In this photo: water from the sky, water for life.
