The Entrance of Ansiães Castle with Sirius and Orion in a Deep Nightscape Scene – Phot and Time Lapse

| | | | |

Captured in the entrance of Ansiães Castle, the still image features the result of multiple exposures to help reveal a deep nightscape scene where is possible to enjoy besides the bluish star Siriuis and the main colorful stars of Orion constellation, deepsky objects shinning in reddish/violets hues like Barnards loop, Orion nebula, Horse Head nebula, Rosette nebula,  and Lambda Orionis. Below is also possible to enjoy a time lapse video showing the shadow shape from the entrance of Ansiães Castle, located in Dark Sky Vale do Tua, northern Portugal, acting as a frame while in the background stars from winter constellations like Orion are shining in different colors due to their temperatures, the scene highlights the bluish brightest hot star in the celestial sphere, Sirius, moving behind the foreground tree. But the busy sky also feature another interesting object, even looking strange at first sight, it’s not an UFO event, but a spinning satellite which took several minutes to cross the entire field of view. Nowadays we are starting to face a huge problem, the growing presence of satellites surrounding our Planet, which will turn into space junk in a near future. Many scientists and astronomers are worried with this problem and the announcements of Elon Musk to launch thousands of new satellites, for sure, it has to be faced as a new kind of Earth/Space pollution. Enjoy with sound on.

PT: Captada na entrada do Castelo de Ansiães, a imagem estática apresenta o resultado de múltiplas exposições para ajudar a revelar um cenário nocturno profundo onde é possível apreciar para além da estrela azulada Sirius e das principais estrelas da constelação de Orion, objectos de céu profundo brilhando numa tonalidade vermelho/violeta como Barnards loop, a nebulosa de Orion, nebulosa Cabeça do Cavalo, nebulosa Roseta e Lambda Orionis. Em baixo é também possível desfrutar de um vídeo time lapse que mostra a silhueta escura da entrada do Castelo de Ansiães, localizado no Dark Sky® Vale do Tua, no norte de Portugal, a funcionar como moldura enquanto ao fundo as estrelas de constelações de inverno como Orion, brilham com diferente cores devido às suas temperaturas. Esta cena nocturna destaca ainda a estrela quente azulada mais brilhante da esfera celeste, Sirius, movendo-se atrás da árvore em primeiro plano. Mas este céu revela ainda outro objeto interessante, mesmo parecendo estranho à primeira vista, não é um evento OVNI, mas um satélite giratório que levou vários minutos para cruzar todo o campo de visão. Hoje em dia enfrentamos um grande problema, a crescente presença de satélites em torno de nosso planeta, que se transformarão em lixo espacial em um futuro próximo. Muitos cientistas e astrónomos de todo o mundo estão seriamente preocupados com este problema e os anúncios de Elon Musk que prevêm o lançamento de milhares de novos satélites. Este é um problema que terá de ser encarado como um novo tipo de poluição na Terra / Espaço.
