American astrophotographer Matt Harbison has published the most detailed image of the constellation Orion, on which he has been working for over five years. The full scale ORION project consists of 2508 individual images on 200 panels. The image takes up 44 terabytes of RAM. The author called the work on the color balance of the image a real art.

On October 28, during two evening auctions dedicated to the art of the 20th century, Sotheby’s in New York managed to raise $ 283.9 million. The start of the auction caused a resonance – the auction started with the announcement of the withdrawal from sale of two masterpieces from the Baltimore Art Museum. All Impressionist and Modernist lots have been sold. In fact, half of the catalog had preliminary guarantees. A session of post-war and contemporary art raised $ 142.2 million, and among the lots were sold three futuristic unique Alfa Romeo cars. The work of the young master Matthew Wong also caused a stir – with a preliminary estimate of 300 thousand dollars, the picture went under the hammer for $ 1.37 million.
