How massive can a star be? Estimates made from distance, brightness and standard solar models had given one star in the open cluster Pismis 24 over 200 times the mass of our Sun, making it a record holder. This star is the brightest object located just to the right of the gas front in the above image. Close inspection of images taken recently with the Hubble Space Telescope, however, have shown that Pismis 24-1 derives its brilliant luminosity not from a single star but from three at least.

Pismis located at the core of small open star cluster Pismis can be seen in this image provided by NASA and ESA. The star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 that extends on the arm of the Sagittarius constellation.

A photograph of a star forming - Hubble Space Telescope

"a photograph of a star forming, courtesy of Hubble… --This is the most amazing image from space I have ever seen :)" - I can't believe this is even a photograph! It looks like a painting!

For the 26th birthday of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers are highlighting a Hubble image of an enormous bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star.

Hubble Sees a Star 'Inflating' a Giant Bubble ~ Just in time for the anniversary of Hubble's launch on April the telescope has photographed an enormous, balloon-like bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star.
