Steve Power captures “Lincoln County Twilight”


Steve Power photo

I don’t know Steve. That looks a lot like Venus and Jupiter to me. And of course the ever present Winter display of the constellation Orion in the upper left with the three stars in a row and the two bright stars on either end. On the top end is the “Red Giant” Betelgeuse, a star nearing the end of its life because it has burned up most of its hydrogen fuel. As the mass of the fuel diminishes, the star will lose gravitational attraction on itself and its flaming gasses will fan outward in a very bright display that astronomers say will be visible in the middle of the day here on Earth. Eventually Betelgeuse will expand outward, covering a very large area, then it’ll collapse back onto itself. What little mass is left will be super-compressed into what is usually called a white dwarf and eventually a black hole since the mass will be so dense that even light won’t escape it. Therefore that particular speck of light in our heavens will disappear forever.

Thanks Steve for a most thought provoking photo!!
