Star Birth

Star Birth

"This festively colorful nebula, called NGC 604, is one of the largest known seething cauldrons of star birth seen in a nearby galaxy. NGC 604 is similar to familiar star-birth regions in our Milky Way galaxy, such as the Orion Nebula, but it is vastly larger in extent and contains many more recently formed stars. This monstrous star-birth region contains more than 200 brilliant blue stars...

Gomezs Hamburger

Gomezs Hamburger

"Hold the pickles; hold the lettuce. Space is serving up giant hamburgers. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a photograph of a strange object that bears an uncanny resemblance to a hamburger. The object, nicknamed Gomez's Hamburger, is a sun-like star nearing the end of its life. It already has expelled large amounts of gas and dust and is on its way to becoming a colorful, glowing...

Gravity Lens - 1 object seen as 2

Gravity Lens - 1 object seen as 2

QSO 0957+561 was the first object ever to be identified as a gravitational lens in space. It’s a single quasar, located some 8 billion light-years from Earth. But it looks like two quasars, due to the presence of an gigantic mass located in space between Earth and the quasar. The intervening mass – a distant galaxy – bends light from the quasar, so that we see two quasar images instead of one.<...

Ring Nebula

Ring Nebula

The famously named "Ring Nebula" is located in the northern constellation of Lyra, and also catalogued as Messier 57, M57 or NGC 6720. It is one of the most prominent examples of the deep-sky objects called planetary nebulae (singular, planetary nebula), often abbreviated by astronomers as simply planetaries or PN.

Farthest Known Galaxy

Farthest Known Galaxy

An international team of astronomers may have set a new record in discovering what is the most distant known galaxy in the universe. Located an estimated 13 billion light-years away, the object is being viewed at a time only 750 million years after the big bang, when the universe was barely 5 percent of its current age. The primeval galaxy was identified by combining the power of NASA's Hubble ...

Baby Galaxy

Baby Galaxy

Scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have measured the age of what may be the youngest galaxy ever seen in the universe. By cosmological standards it is a mere toddler seemingly out of place among the grown-up galaxies around it. Called I Zwicky 18, it may be as young as 500 million years old (so recent an epoch that complex life had already begun to appear on Earth). Our Milky Way ga...

Hubble Deep Field - 1500 Galaxies at Once

Hubble Deep Field - 1500 Galaxies at Once

Representing a narrow "keyhole" view stretching to the visible horizon of the universe, the Hubble Deep Field image covers a speck of the sky only about the width of a dime 75 feet away. Though the field is a very small sample of the heavens, it is considered representative of the typical distribution of galaxies in space, because the universe, statistically, looks largely the same in...

Cats Eye Nebula

Cats Eye Nebula

This Hubble telescope image shows one of the most complex planetary nebulae ever seen, NGC 6543, nicknamed the "Cat's Eye Nebula." Hubble reveals surprisingly intricate structures including concentric gas shells, jets of high-speed gas, and unusual shock-induced knots of gas. Estimated to be 1,000 years old, the nebula is a visual "fossil record" of the dynamics and late evo...

Comet 17P Holmes

Comet 17P Holmes

Outburst of Comet 17p holmes.
Between October 23–24, 2007, Comet Holmes grew much brighter,
going from magnitude 17 to magnitude 2.5 in just a few hours.
It became easily visible to the naked eye.
October 25 17P/Holmes appeared as the third brightest "star" in that constellation.
This is about the position right now.
