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.
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).
Witch's Broom Nebula: 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.

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.
Galactic Wreckage in Stephan's Quintet - A clash among members of a famous galaxy quintet reveals an assortment of stars across a wide color range, from young, blue stars to aging, red stars. This group is also known as the Hickson Compact Group 92
Andromeda Galaxy (the Andromeda Galaxy is one of the closest Galaxy to us, scientists even believe that someday the Andromeda Galaxy will make a collision with our Milky way and completely destroy both of the Galaxies). I learned this on How The Universe
Stellar Nursery in Doradus This massive, young stellar grouping, called is only a few million years old and resides in the 30 Doradus Nebula, a turbulent star-birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way
Intergalactic debris and far-flung atoms, shards of carbon nanomatter rounded up by gravity to circle the sun. As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship.
NGC 1300 by Steven Marx. A barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about light-years across; just slightly larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster.
Each year the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope releases a brand new image to celebrate its birthday. This year, the subject of its celebratory snap is part of the Monkey Head Nebula, last viewed by Hubble in creating a stunning image released in known as…
