Images from Hubble Space Telescope. Star cluster Pismis 24 hangs over the dusty clouds of NGC a nebula about 8000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius. This picture showed that the brightest star in the cluster is in fact two stars in a tig
This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, which is even more dramatic than fiction, captures the chaotic activity atop a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars
This infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Helix nebula, a cosmic starlet often photographed by amateur astronomers for its vivid colors and eerie resemblance to a giant eye. 36 / 40 Photo by Comets Kick up Dust in Helix Nebula;
Hubble Captures View of 'Mystic Mountain' the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.
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.
Nebulous Strings in the Veil NebulaThis image shows a small portion of the Veil Nebula - the shattered remains of a supernova that exploded thousands of years ago. The Veil Nebula is located in the Constellation Cygnus about light-years away.
The Ghost Nebula, spanning two light-years, and 2000 light-years distant from Earth. Credit: Hubble Heritage Team As I'm still working on the lovely star-blessed tsentr, Neala, I found this to be most inspiring.
THE CORE OF OUR GALAXY, seen in infrared light by the Spitzer Space Telescope. Blue light is from stars, green light is from polycyclic carbon molecules, yellow and red light is from the thermal glow of warm dust. This image spans approximately 1000 light
The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth. This composite image includes images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).
