This is how the solar system is actually moving as it traverses the galaxy.  omfg  So beAutiful  Wait  Yeah it’s not circular as you’ve been taught. It does revolve around the sun, but like every other star, the sun travels, and pulls us too. Fih-boe-nah-chi   and just where the fuck are we going  ask the sun

An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way. Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t.

The area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.

Eclipse of Venus -- NASA’s Picture of the Day on Aug.20, 2013.   Usually it is the Earth’s Moon that eclipses the Sun. Last June, most unusually, the planet Venus took a turn. Pictured above during the occultation, the Sun was imaged in three colors of ultraviolet light by the Earth-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, with the dark region toward the right corresponding to a coronal hole. The next Venusian solar eclipse will occur in 2117.

To celebrate its 22nd anniversary in orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope released a dramatic new image of the star-forming region 30 Doradus, also known as the Tarantula Nebula because its glowing filam

New View of the Tarantula Nebula

30 Doradus, one of the largest star-forming regions located close to the Milky Way, is fondly called Trantula Nebula as the glowing filaments resemble spider legs.

Uranus a beautiful planet indeed--7th planet from the Sun. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune...both are different chemical composition than the larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. For this reason, astronomers sometimes place them in a separate category called "ice giants"...
