The Tadpole Galaxy (also known as UGC 10214 or Arp 188) is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located about 420 million light-years away toward the northern constellation Draco. Its most dramatic features are an incredibly long trail of stars and massive, bright blue star clusters, reflecting the essence of our dynamic, restless and violent Universe. - Credit: NASA, Hubble, Mehdi Bozzo-Rey

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes. FOUR BILLION LIGHT YEARS ACROSS!!!!

The Sombrero galaxy was voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104, are as spectacular as its appearance. The Sombrero Galaxy spans about 50,000 light years across and lies 28 million light years away.

The Bird (ESO 593-IG 008) is a triple merger of galaxies, composed of one barred spiral, one more irregular & a third (the head) irregular galaxy that seems to be forming stars at a frantic rate. 650 mly away. ESO VLT

♥ Witch's Broom Nebula.  How can we look at photos taken of outer space, and not be totally AWE STRUCK???
