What do you see in the clouds? ☁️☁️☁️ These spiraling cloud patterns off the coast of Morocco were captured by our @NASAEarth instrument on the Suomi NPP satellite on July 19, 2019. They're known as von Kármán vortices, which can form nearly anywhere that fluid flow is disturbed by a solid object. Here, the patterns formed when winds flowed around small islands in the North Atlantic.

This rounded object isn't something seen through a microscope. Instead, it's a vast orb of gas in space, cast off by an aging star and seen by the @NASAHubble telescope. The star is visible in the orb's center, shining through the gases it formerly held onto for most of its stellar life. When stars like the Sun grow advanced in age, they expand and glow red. These so-called red giants then begin to lose their outer layers of material into space. More than half of such a star's mass can be shed in this manner, forming a shell of surrounding gas. At the same time, the star's core shrinks and grows hotter, emitting ultraviolet light that causes the expelled gases to glow. Image credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA, R.

Flying through a fire cloud ☁️🔥☁️ This photo from roughly 30,000 ft (9 km) shows how smoke particles reflect light in ways that make the Sun appear blazing orange. Our DC-8 flying laboratory passed directly through a large fire cloud — called a pyrocumulonimbus — on August 8 as it was rising from a fire in eastern Washington, giving scientists a look at the phenomena. These clouds form when the intense heat of wildfires lift the smoke above the boundary layer, the lowest part of Earth's atmosphere. The flight was part of a joint NOAA and NASA field campaign called FIREX-AQ. Scientists are studying the composition and chemistry of smoke to better understand its impact on air quality and climate.

As the @NASAHubble telescope turned its eye on Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, an Earth-sized storm rolling counterclockwise between two bands of clouds, it noticed something unusual. Can you tell what it is? 🤔 The color palette in the clouds is more intense than usual. The colorful bands, which flow in opposite directions at various latitudes, result from different atmospheric pressures. Lighter bands rise higher and have thicker clouds than the darker bands. The intensity of the colors reveals important clues about the planet’s turbulent atmosphere. Click the link in the bio for more info ⬆️ Credits: NASA, ESA, A.

Before her audition for the Valentino Garavani #VSLING bag campaign, Devoray (@dominiquet.a.r.Jackson) insisted on a photoshoot with @lukegilford
According to astronaut Christina Koch, this is one of the most bold and recognizable geographical places on Earth. It's the Baja California Peninsula in Northwestern Mexico, seen here in a stunning view she shared from her orbiting spot 250 miles above the Earth. Astronauts have used hand-held cameras to photograph the Earth for decades. Beginning with the Mercury missions in the early 1960s, astronauts have taken millions of photographs of our home planet.

No, this red beam in space isn't a light saber! It's a galaxy, far, far away — 44 million light-years away, to be exact. We often imagine galaxies as having massive spiral arms or thick disks of dust, but not all galaxies are oriented face-on as viewed from Earth. From our viewpoint, our Spitzer Space Telescope can detect this galaxy's infrared light but can only view the entire galaxy on its side where we can't see its spiral features. We know it has a diameter of roughly 60,000 light-years — a little more than half the diameter of our own Milky Way galaxy.

Seven years. 13 miles. 22 samples. Our Curiosity rover has come a long way since touching down on Mars seven years ago. It has traveled a total of 13 miles (21 kilometers) and ascended 1,207 feet (368 meters) to its current location. Along the way, Curiosity discovered Mars had the conditions to support microbial life in the ancient past. And the rover is far from done, having just drilled its 22nd sample from the Martian surface. Curiosity captured this 360-degree panorama of a location on Mars called “Teal Ridge” on June 18, 2019.

A historic mission to the Moon came to a successful end 50 years ago today, July 24, 1969 when Apollo 11 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, about 900 miles from Hawaii. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins were recovered by the crew of the USS Hornet recovery ship, where President Nixon was waiting to greet them. Despite going into quarantine for the next three weeks to avoid the possibility of spreading any lunar microbes, the Apollo 11 crew would be embraced by the world for their heroic feat. #Apollo50th #Apollo #Apollo11 #nasa #space #navy

"What a spectacular view!" — Neil Armstrong "God, look at that Moon!" — Michael Collins On July 19, 1969, the Apollo 11 spacecraft entered lunar orbit. It was the fourth day of the mission and just one day before Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the surface in the lunar module, Eagle, and took the first steps on the Moon. This close-up photograph of the lunar surface taken by the Apollo 11 astronauts shows the large crater Theophilus located at the northwest edge of Mare Nectaris on the lunar nearside.

Bright, colorful pockets of star formation are blooming in this spiral galaxy just under 70 million light-years away, seen by the @NASAHubble Space Telescope. The orange-pink glow is created as hydrogen gas reacts to the intense light streaming outwards from nearby newborn stars. These bright patches can be seen here amid dark, tangled streams of cosmic dust. Astronomers look for these telltale signs of star formation when they study galaxies throughout the cosmos, as star formation rates, locations, and histories offer critical clues about how these colossal collections of gas and dust have evolved over time. New generations of stars contribute to — and are also, in turn, influenced by — the broader forces and factors that mold galaxies throughout the universe, such as gravity, radiation, matter, and dark matter.

Happy #FlagDay! One of the most iconic images from the #Apollo11 mission is of Buzz Aldrin saluting the American flag on the surface of the Moon. But did you know that over the next three years, five more flags joined the one left by Apollo 11 — and that many other flags have flown onboard our spacecraft?

COFFEE <—- my hot friend I was telling you about. ☕️
Happiness comes in waves 🌊
Hello Everyone, as you might know our environment, in all respects, be it humanity, the economy or our wildlife are particularly important issues for us. A while ago we decided to release a J1MO71 shirt collection for three different charities. Today, on the International Ocean Day, we’d like to raise your awareness for the importance of clean, accessible water by introducing to you our „Clean Oceans” charity shirt. We’ll donate 5 € to a registered charity for each T-Shirt sold. As soon as we have raised the money we’ll inform you directly about the organisation’s name and the specific cause your money will be going towards. xx Lisa & Lena #worldoceansday
