Explanation: December’s New Moon brought a solar eclipse to some for the holiday season. It also gave beautiful dark night skies to skygazers around the globe, like this moonless northern winter night. In the scene, bright stars of the Winter Hexagon along the Milky Way are rising. Cosy mountain cabins in the snowy foreground are near the village of Oravska Lesna, Slovakia. The shining celestial beacons marking the well-known asterism are Aldebaran, Capella, Pollux (and Castor), Procyon, Rigel, and Sirius. This winter nightscape also reveals faint nebulae in Orion, and the lovely Pleiades star cluster. Slide your cursor over the image to trace the winter hexagon, or just follow this link.

说明:12月的新月给这个充满节日气氛的月份带来了日食。它还为全球的天文爱好者带来了美丽的黑暗夜空,就像这个没有月亮的北半球冬夜。在这幅雪景影像中,沿着银河系冬季六边形的明亮恒星高悬在斯洛伐克.奥拉夫斯卡莱斯纳附近舒适的小木屋上空。组成这个著名星群的亮星是毕宿五、五车二、北河三和北河二、南河三、参宿七以及天狼星。这幅深空曝光影像还呈现了猎户座内的黯淡星云和美丽的昴宿星团。
