#NASA NGC 6670 is a pair of galaxies interacting with each other and are just 50,000 light years away.

#NASA Two moons? No, Titan, Saturn's largest moon, casts a shadow.

#NASA If you aimed a telescope towards the 3-star belt in the constellation of Orion, you would see this.

#NASA The planet, Uranus. Its 27 moons are named after the characters from the works of William Shakespeare and Alexander Pope.

#NASA When you see the star, V838 Monocerotis, what does it remind you of?

#NASA The Bubble Nebula (NGC 7635). How many stars this nursery 7,100-11,000 light years away gave birth to, I do not know.

#NASA When you look into the barred spiral galaxy, NGC 1512, it almost looks like the Star Wars depiction of traveling through hyperspace.

#NASA Every dot of light is a galaxy, not a star, when you look as far out of the known universe as you possibly can.

#NASA Before you, two superlatives: Jupiter, the largest planet in our Solar System; and Ganymede, Jupiter's largest satellite (moon). Ganymede also happens to be the largest of all the moons of any of the planets, even larger than our own Moon.

#NASA Eta Carinae (η Carinae) is one very unstable star. Are you glad we're 7,500-8,000 light years away?

#NASA The planet, Saturn, with a clear view of its icy South Pole and well-defined ring system.
