Sydney Grace x Temptalia: Light vs. Deep Versions + Visualizing & Comparing All the Shades

One of the questions I’ve been asked the most is whether someone should get the Light or Deep version of a palette, so I thought I’d discuss the differences and hopefully provide some insight/ask the right questions to help you dial in whether the light or deep version is more suitable for you, assuming you’re looking to purchase one. As always, if none of the palettes would be something you wear, please do not buy to “support” me. Engaging with the content I post, re...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia Quintessence | The Arrangement + Combinations

The Quintessence palette features four matte shades and eight shimmers. One shimmer–Orion Nebula–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, so it is more like a satin-to-pearl finish and could be used as a matte for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease. All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations possible. Note: Reaching Zenith and Parallax are the matte eyeshadows that hav...

Orion Nebula

Stellar nurseries abound in December’s evening skies. The most prominent is the Orion Nebula. It is a hazy patch of light to the right of Orion’s Belt, a short line of three stars standing up from the eastern horizon in early to mid evening.

Trapezium

The Orion Nebula is visible in the south as night falls. It looks like a fuzzy star below Orion’s Belt. Binoculars will reveal the Trapezium, a cluster of brilliant young stars near the center of the nebula.

Orion Veil

A brilliant young star in the Orion Nebula apparently doesn’t want any more brothers or sisters. It’s blowing an intense “wind” that’s clearing out much of the gas around it — pushing away the raw materials for making more stars. The star is known by the somewhat clumsy name of Theta-1 Orionis C. It’s the heaviest member of the Trapezium — a cluster of hot, massive young stars. The star is many times heavier than the Sun, tens of thousands of degrees hotter, and hundreds of thousands of times br...

A Solar Flare '10 Billion Times More Powerful' Than Earth's Sun Blasted Out of Orion's Sword

In November 2016, astronomers watched a young star some 1,500 light-years away from Earth belch out an explosion of plasma and radiation that was roughly 10 billion times more powerful than any flare ever seen leaving Earth's sun. This sudden stellar eruption may be the most luminous known flare ever released by a young star -- and it could help scientists better understand the still-murky process of star formation."Observing flares around the youngest stars is new territory and it is giving...

Bad Homes

Bad Homes Orion is one of the most prominent and beautiful of all constellations. Features include the bright orange star Betelgeuse (upper left), the blue-white star Rigel (lower right), Orion's Belt (three stars at center), and the Orion Nebula (fuzzy zone below the belt). Betelgeuse and Rigel are often featured in science fiction, but neither star would be a good home for life. And if life has evolved at either star, it's doomed: both are destined to explo...

Lifting the veil on star formation in the Orion Nebula

Writing in 'Nature', an international research team including astronomers from Cologne describe their discovery that stellar wind from a newborn star in the Orion Nebula is preventing more stars from forming nearby.

3-D views reveal ‘Orion’s Dragon’ in space

Spectral readings from the Orion Nebula have charted the cosmic weather patterns for powerful stellar winds that have created a bubble of material that's 12 light-years wide, as well as a structure that's been nicknamed "Orion's Dragon." The dragon shape stands out in a 3-D video produced using data from NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA, a Boeing 747 jet that's been converted to carry a 106-inch telescope and other scientific instruments. "Whe...

More ‘O’ Stars

The Orion Nebula is 1,500 light-years away, yet it’s easily visible to the eye alone. It contains thousands of newborn stars. But it shines so brightly thanks mainly to just one star, Theta-1 Orionis C-1. It’s a member of class “O,” the most impressive class of stars in the galaxy.

Runaways

Mismatched Twins Iota Orionis, the bright star to the lower right of center in this image of the Orion Nebula, is actually a binary--two stars locked in orbit around each other by their mutual gravitational pull. While the stars in most binaries are the same age, indicating that they were born together, the stars of Iota Orionis are different ages. That suggests that each star was born with another partner. A close encounter between the two binaries sent one ...

New Observations Reveal a Dramatic Web Structure Inside the Orion Nebula

Perhaps the most recognizable constellation in the night sky is Orion the hunter. Look closely at the three bright orbs lined up below his belt—his sword. The middle one isn’t a star, but an entire nebula, and parts of it have been invisible to researchers until recently.Read more...

Where Are Stars Born? Orion Nebula's Stellar Nursery Seen In Incredible Image

The Orion Nebula is a region of the universe known to be the ideal place for the birth of new stars. Located 1,350 light-years away from Earth, the Orion Nebula is our closest star-formation region and is studied extensively by astronomers attempting to understand how stars form and evolve. Researchers used new data gathered by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and other telescopes to create an incredible new image that reveals an inner web of filaments in Orion Nebula. The...

Orion Nebula

The constellation of Orion is best visible in the Northern hemisphere during crisp and clear winter nights. It’s very prominent with its four “corner” stars (top two Orion, the hunter’s shoulders, buttom two the hem of his skirt) around the three-in-a line belt and the dangling sword. With camera on tripod and various lenses set to shutter speeds based on the rule of 500 I mentioned previoulsy (precludes star trails), I had a go at photographing this constellation and then zooming in on that sw...

Harold Weaver

More than five decades ago, astronomers at the University of California at Berkeley were using radio telescopes to study the Orion Nebula, a giant stellar nursery. They found an especially strong signal at an unexpected wavelength. The astronomers thought the signal might come from a mysterious molecule that no one had ever seen on Earth. So they gave it an appropriate name: mysterium. They soon learned that it was a common molecule made of one oxygen atom and one hydrogen atom. The radio signal...

A tale of three stellar cities: Three different populations of baby stars

Using new observations from ESO's VLT Survey Telescope, astronomers have discovered three different populations of baby stars within the Orion Nebula Cluster. This unexpected discovery adds very valuable new insights for the understanding of how such clusters form. It suggests that star formation might proceeds in bursts, where each burst occurs on a much faster time-scale than previously thought.
