No clue what this is but I can’t help by being mesmerized by this.. space is incredible

Flaming Star Nebula: Auriga's flaming star - Reflecting blue star's bright light - Onto reflective nebula.

the awesome infinity!!!

Hubble view of star-forming region This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows Sh or for short. This is a compact star forming region in the constellation Cygnus (The Swan). A newly-formed star called IR is shrouded.

A new image of two tangled galaxies has been released by NASA's Great Observatories. The Antennae galaxies are shown in this composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Spitzer Space Telescope.

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).

The Witch's Broom Nebula is also part of the famous Veil Nebula complex, this being the western portion. The entire complex is the remnant of a powerful supernova explosion which occurred thousands of years ago, sending elements forged in the destroyed stars core into space. The bright star is 52 Cygni.

M16 - Combining almost opposite ends of the electromagnetic spectrum, this composite of the Herschel in far-infrared and XMM-Newton's X-ray images shows how the hot young stars detected by the X-ray observations are sculpting and interacting with the surrounding ultra-cool gas and dust, which, at only a few degrees above absolute zero, is the critical material for star formation itself.

The small open star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 in Scorpius, about light-years away from Earth.

Clouds Of Perseus. “So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet, try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” Stephen Hawking

Clouds of Perseus ~ contains over solar masses of gas and dust, but the eye is drawn to red NGC Known as the California Nebula, its characteristic glow of atomic hydrogen gas is fueled by ultraviolet light from luminous blue star Xi Persei.

NGC 1300 by Steven Marx          A barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about 110,000 light-years across; just slightly larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster, a cluster of 200 galaxies. [**]
