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
Although Hubble can't point at the sun, it can still take some pretty awesome images, like this one, which shows a halo of hot gas surrounding spiral galaxy NGC 4631 that's similar to the Milky Way galaxy.
As a star's shell explodes outward, its core squeezes inward. The result can be a black hole or neutron star. This highly distorted supernova remnant, called may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy.
NGC a planetary nebula. The remnant star visible at the center of NGC 2371 is the super-hot core of the former red giant, now stripped of its outer layers. Its surface temperature is NGC 2371 is about 4300 ly away in the constellation Gemini
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.

Celestial Emissions - Eta Carina Nebula by Glowing regions of gas in our galaxy are known as emission nebulae. Imaging these nebulae through filters that only allow the passage of very specific wavelengths of light produces this type of image.
