Silicate Crystal Formation in the Disk of an Erupting Star

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the leading center for robotic exploration of the solar system.

This object, called the Helix nebula, lies 650 light-years away in the constellation of Aquarius. Also known by the catalog number NGC it is a typical example of a class of objects called planetary nebulae. Discovered in the century, these cosm Helix Nebula, Planetary Nebula, Orion Nebula, Eagle Nebula, Carina Nebula, Andromeda Galaxy, Nebula Wallpaper, Galaxy Wallpaper, Wallpaper Wallpapers

There's A 13th Zodiac Constellation Now And People Are Freaking Out About It

According to NASA, there are now actually 13 Zodiac constellations instead of the original 12 that astrologers everywhere know and love, and people are basically losing their minds.

The Andromeda galaxy, also known as is only million light years away. It covers about light years, so to produce this gorgeous photograph in ultraviolet light from the telescope satellite Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) have been required.

✨Los anillos de M31 en luz ultravioleta

Domingo 6 de Marzo de 2016 La Galaxia de Andrómeda, catalogada como Messier 31, está tan sólo a 2,5 millones de años luz de distancia de la Tierra. Abarca unos 260.000 años luz, por lo que para producir esta magnífica fotografía en luz ultravioleta desde el telescopio del satélite Galaxy Evolution Explorer GALEX han sido necesarios 11 campos de visión distintos. Los brazos espirales que destacan en las imágenes en luz visible de Andrómeda parecen más bien unos anillos en la vista…

The Antennae Some 60 million light-years away in the southerly constellation Corvus, two large galaxies collided. But the stars in the two galaxies cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039 don’t collide in the course of the ponderous, billion year or so.

Blue moon

HDR Canon 60D Moon was peeking behind the clouds. Increased the saturation which in turn has highlighted the halo which was mildly visible through the thin layer of cloud.

Will they or won't they? Two galaxies that probably won't become one

I've always been fascinated by interacting galaxies. Part of that is simply the scale. Galaxies are immense structures. When you go outside at night and look up, you can see a few thousand stars. Almost all of them are relatively close to the Sun, with the vast majority being less than 1,000 light years away. But the Milky Way is 100,000 light years across! The stars you see with your naked eye seem countless, but they represent about one one-hundred-millionth of all the stars in the galaxy…
