Maybe the chicken crossed to the other side of the nebula.

Nice image in any case!

Nice...no chicken as far as I can tell either. The blue channel (OIII?) really provides great contrast for the Bok globules.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

This is an image of IC 2044, also known as the Running Chicken Nebula. I will be honest with you I am not seeing the chicken. It is an open cluster and associated emission nebula about 6,500 light years away in the constellation Centaurus. It has some very prominent Bok Globules in the center, which are usually sites of active star formation. However, there does not appear to be any star formation associated with the globules in IC 2044. This image was captured with 5nm narrowband filters (Ha, SII, and OIII) and processed with the Hubble palette.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Hi all:

Comet c2019 Y4 Atlas has brightened unexpectedly over the past few weeks and is now around magnitude 8.5 on the border between Ursa Major and
Camelopardalis:

http://www.greggsastronomy.com/IMAGES/c2019-Y4-Atlas-LRGB_031920.jpg
LRGB, 40 minutes total exposure.

The comet was discovered on December 28 by the ATLAS program (https://www.space.com/41167-asteroid-warning-telescope-atlas-passes-test.html).
The comet may continue to brighten as it approaches the sun in May. It is expected to pass about 23 million miles from the sun so there is some concern that it may not survive.

Re: Power Outage at DSNM 2020-03-21 ~10 PM

Howard,

 

Yes… I found that map first but it didn’t show anything near Animas. I then remembered that DSNM is off the COOP and not the other company. Sure enough, about 99% of Hidalgo in NM and Cochise in AZ were out of power. I’m guessing something big went down.

Hi Dan,

 

Yes.  Outage occurred at about 8:30 PM local Arizona time.

I sent a note to Michael and Vince last night.

Received no reply but I noticed power was back
up this morning.  I was pretty sure it was a power
problem because I could not ping 206.128.69.5.

It could of course have been the router or Valley
telecom but I knew it was power this morning when
I saw that my computer had rebooted.

I knew about this:

 

But it didn't show anything.  I have copied the URL of

the map you found and added it to my arsenal of
analytical stuff.  :-)  Thanks for providing that link!

 

Thanks,
