Massive star IRS 4 is beginning to spread its wings. Born about 100,000 years ago, material streaming out from this newborn star has formed the nebula dubbed Sharpless 2-106 Nebula (S106), pictured above. It lies about 2000 light-years away toward the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus).

The Andromeda Galaxy photographed with a 12.5-inch telescope by amateur astronomer Robert Gendler.
The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared One of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infrared light. The above image, digitally sharpened, shows the infrared glow, recently recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope
"Physicists say we are made of stardust. 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. We are man, we are thought, we are story. We are all star stuff."
This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousand of young stars & developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion.
This is probably the most amazing photo you will see of the Orion nebula's center, a cloud of gas and dust known as M42. The work was created by Adam Block at the Mount Lemon Sky Center observatory in Arizona. Image: Adam Block/Mount Lemmon SkyCenter/University of Arizona
In honor of NASA's 55th Anniversary we put together this infographic that shows NASA's planned expeditions through 2030.
On July 19, NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured a rare image of Saturn's rings and our planet Earth and its moon.
The European Space Agencys Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are forming
I like that this shows how much of the Milky Way we've actually really looked at. There's so much out there we haven't found yet. This is why I love astronomy/cosmology
This object is a billowing tower of cold gas and dust rising from a stellar nursery called the Eagle Nebula. 7,000 light-years distant from us, the soaring tower is 9.5 light-years or about 90 trillion kilometers tall. When Swiss astronomer Philippe Loys de Chéseaux discovered the Eagle Nebula in the mid-eighteenth century, he only described the cluster of stars surrounding it. Charles Messier independently rediscovered it in 1764 as part of his catalog, dubbing it M16.
