#UMPlus - Glen Canyon by David Lane https://www.universomágico.com/2021/06/glen-canyon-por-david-lane.html The impressive landscape photographed by astronomer David Lane, shows the orography, beauty and a sky located on a planet in the Solar System, Earth. Although the image appears to have been taken on a distant planet from a distant star in another galaxy, the scene takes place in the state of Utah very close to Arizona in the United States. It is Lake Powell, a lake surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches where several rivers converge, including the San Juan River and the Colorado River. Visitors can climb, hike, swim or sail, as well as take pictures of the landscape and the dark sky where the stars shine in a special way. It has received the nickname of being the Lost National Park of the United States, because the flooded canyons resemble the federal designations that surround it. But the color is what is most surprising for its intensity, the amber, tangerine and red rock colors, contrast with the intense blue of its waters. David thought that light pollution from Page Arizona, located just a few miles southwest of the lake, might spoil the scene, but the camera caught something totally different, turning the cliffs a neon yellow hue. In the distance in the water, they are appreciated.....

#UMPlus - Dwarf galaxy UGCA 281 https://www.universomágico.com/2021/06/galaxia-enana-ugca-281.html UGCA 281 is a compact and blue dwarf galaxy, it is located in the Constellation of Canes Venatici and located at a distance of about 18 million light years from the Milky Way. Within this galaxy, two giant star clusters appear bright white and are enveloped by greenish clouds of hydrogen gas. These clusters are responsible for most of the recent star formation at UGCA 281. The rest of the galaxy is made up of older stars and appears redder in color. The reddish objects in the background are.....

#UMPlus - NGC 691 https://www.universomágico.com/2021/06/ngc-691.html This image shows the spiral galaxy NGC 691, imaged in exceptional detail by the wide-field camera 3 of the Hubble Space Telescope. This galaxy is about 130,000 luyz years in diameter and is the dominant member of the NGC 691 Group of galaxies, a group of galaxies named after him, gravitationally bound, and about 120 million light-years apart. of the Milky Way. Other members of the group include IC 163, NGC 678, NGC 680, NGC 694, IC 167, and NGC 697. NGC 691 exhibits a multiple ring structure, with three rings that have been recognized in the infrared spectrum of light. When imaging in H-alpha, this galaxy appears irregular. The total rate of star formation in the galaxy is estimated to be approximately.....
