NGC 6960 - 8.11.2021 at 22.30 - 8.11.2021 at 22.38 Janakkala, Tervakoski Observation number 102078

Visibility I / V

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The main focus of the evening was the Asteroid 2002 AW34 crossing, which I noticed and the result was negative. After scientific work, I decided to test a new optolong L-Pro filter, with a gauze mist in the picture.

      Supernova remnant is the remnant of the big star died in supernova explosion. The supernova remnants are quite irregularly shaped. Rather many of them ring-like strusture.

      The moderate big instruments and possibly special filters are needed to see supernova remnants.

       

      The Crab Nebula was born in a star explosion in  1054. This is the easiest supernova remnant in the sky to observe. Image Tero Hirvikoski.

       

      The supernova remnant Simesis 147 is in Taurs and Auriga. Image J-P Metsävainio.

       

      The Veil Nebula in Cygnus is wide-area supernova remnant in the sky. There is a detailed image of the boxed area. Image J-P Metsävainio.
