Orion Revisited: Astronomers Find New Star Cluster in Front of the Orion Nebula    by JASON MAJOR on NOVEMBER 26, 2012

Star Cluster Near Orion Nebula Revealed in Telescope Views

A star cluster once thought to belong to the Orion Nebula is actually a separate entity, scientists say. A powerful telescope camera made the star cluster NGC 1980 find.

An Unexpected Ending for Deep Impact by JASON MAJOR on SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 Comet Tempel 1 a minute after being struck by Deep Impact’s impactor on July 4, 2005 (NASA/JPL-Caltech/UMD) After almost 9 years in space that included an unprecedented July 4th impact and subsequent flyby of a comet, an additional comet flyby, and the return of approximately 500,000 images of celestial objects, NASA’s Deep Impact/EPOXI mission has officially been brought to a close.

Cassini's Final Full Image of Saturn : Here's a mosaic of Saturn made from raw images acquired by Cassini on Sept. 13, 2017, as it was on its way toward its dive into the planet's atmosphere. These images are uncalibrated for color but were acquired in visible-light RGB filters. This will be our last close-up image of Saturn for a long time.

Rosetta’s Comet Really “Blows Up” in Latest Images - Jet activity on Comet 67P/C-G imaged on Jan. 31 and Feb. 3, 2015. By ESA/Rosetta/NAVCAM

No, comet is not about to explode or disintegrate. But as it steadily gets nearer to the Sun the comet’s jets are getting more and more active and they’re putting on quite a show for the orbiting Rosetta spacecraft!

Jason Major created this RGB-composite showing Saturn's largest moon Titan. Major used raw Cassini images acquired on 1/92/2914. 'The moon's south polar vortex can be seen just along the terminator, as well as its cyan-colored upper-level haze layer,' Major said in a NASA statement.  These amazing images of Saturn were created by enthusiasts from the public data available from the Cassini spacecraft.
