"Scientists Discover the Oldest, Largest Body of Water in Existence - In Space" ...The cloud of water is enough to supply 28 galaxies with water and was discovered 12 billion light years away!

Hubble’s face-on view of this unusual galaxy, known as Hoag’s Object after Arthur Allen Hoag, who discovered it in 1950, shows its nearly perfect ring of hot, massive, blue stars surrounding a nucleus of older, yellow stars. Ring-shaped galaxies can form either through a collision with another galaxy or when a second galaxy speeds through the first, leaving parts of itself behind. In Hoag's Object, there is evidence that the blue ring may be the shredded remains of a galaxy that passed nearby.

Once thought to be part of the Orion nebula, the star cluster NGC 1980 is actually a separate entity, scientists say. It appears around the brightest star seen at the bottom of this image, iota Ori.

The Rose - The spinning vortex of Saturn's north polar storm resembles a deep red rose of giant proportions surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. Measurements have sized the eye at a staggering 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 miles per hour (150 meters per second).
