The Eagle Has Risen: Stellar Spire in the Eagle Nebula. A billowing tower of gas and dust rises from the stellar nursery known as the Eagle Nebula. This small piece of the Eagle Nebula is 57 trillion miles long trillion km).
The Sombrero Galaxy - 28 million light years from Earth - was voted the most beautiful picture taken by Hubble Telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, are as spectacular as it’s appearance. It has 800 billion suns and is light years across.
A stunning rare case of a triple merger of galaxies. This system, which astronomers have dubbed 'The Bird' - albeit it also bears resemblance with a cosmic Tinker Bell - is composed of two massive spiral galaxies and a third irregular galaxy.
NGC 6888 - Crescent Nebula, is a cosmic bubble about 25 ly across, blown by winds from its central, bright, massive star. NGC central star is classified as a Wolf-Rayet star (WR NGC 6888 is about 5000 light years away in the constellation Cygnus.
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
A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…
