Cat's Paw Nebula ~ Nebulas are known for being identified with familiar shapes. Introducing the Cat's Paw Nebula visible in Scorpius. At 5,500 light years distant, Cat's Paw is an emission nebula with a red color that originates from an abundance of ionized hydrogen atoms. Alternatively known as the Bear Claw Nebula or NGC 6334, stars nearly ten times the mass of our Sun have been born there in only the past few million years. Pictured above is a deep field image of the Cat's Paw nebula.

The Sombrero Galaxy, also known as M104, spans about 50,000 light years across and lies 28 million light years away.

Beautiful Sombrero Galaxy - This is a real picture, taken by the Hubble telescope. This beautiful galaxy has a huge 'dust' ring around it, but it has very few stars in the center. Instead, the core has a super-massive black hole.

Despite being less famous than its galactic cousins, elliptical or spiral galaxies, dwarf irregular galaxies - as captured in this image by the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA / ESA - is a very common type of galaxy in the universe. Known as UGC 4459, this dwarf galaxy lies about 11 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major, a constellation that is also home to the Pinwheel Galaxy (M101), the Owl Nebula (M97) , Messier 81, Messier 82 and other galaxies belonging to M81 group.

The Hourglass Nebula, 8,000 light years away, has a "pinched-in-the-middle" look because the winds that shape it are weaker at the centre.

The Einstein Rings: Hubble Captures Galaxies in an Exotic Alignment #gravitationallensing #einsteinrings

The Einstein Rings. The Hubble Space Telescope revealed a never-before-seen optical alignment in space. The pattern caused by the bending of light from 2 distant galaxies strung directly behind a forground massive galaxy, like 3 beads on a string.
