Carina Nebula - The top image shows in visible light, like this, it is easy to see the wispy dust being pushed away because of the high speed wind and radiation. The lower picture was taken in infrared. Infrared radiation is able to cut through the dust better than visible light, which is why the stars show up more clearly. While the nebula itself is less visible, it is easy to see the new star forming in the middle. (credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)

Notice the hexagon shaped storm at Saturn’s north pole, the sides of the hexagon are 8,600 miles long, larger than Earth!

A close-up of Astronaut John Grunsfeld shows the reflection of Astronaut Andrew Feustel, perched on the robotic arm and taking the photo. The pair teamed together on three of the five spacewalks during Servicing Mission 4 in May 2009.

Black Widow Nebula Hides in the Dust -In this Spitzer image, the two opposing bubbles are being formed in opposite directions by the powerful outflows from massive groups of forming stars. The baby stars can be seen as specks of yellow where the two bubbles overlap. (credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. of Wisc.)

Orion's Cradle - Cradled in glowing hydrogen, stellar nurseries in Orion lie at the edge of a giant molecular cloud some 1,500 light-years away. This breath-taking view spans about 13 degrees across the center of the well-known constellation with the Great Orion Nebula, the closest large star forming region, just right of center. The deep mosaic also includes (left of center), the Horsehead Nebula, the Flame Nebula, and Orion's belt stars. (credit & copyright Tony Hallas)

The Horsehead Nebula in Infrared from Hubble - This newer view of the nebula shows it at infrared wavelengths. While it appears shadowy in optical light but is transparent and ethereal in the infrared. (credit: NASA, ESA, and The Hubble Heritage Team (STSci/AURA))

Witch Head nebula - The billowy clouds of the nebula, where baby stars are brewing, are being lit up by massive stars. Dust in the cloud is being hit with starlight, causing it to glow with infrared light, which was picked up by WISE's detectors. The Witch Head nebula is estimated to be hundreds of light-years away in the Orion constellation, just off the famous hunter's knee. (credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech)
