A Perfect Spiral.. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has produced this finely detailed image of the beautiful spiral galaxy #NGC6384. This galaxy lies in the #constellationOphiuchus (The Serpent Bearer), not far from the centre of the Milky Way on the sky. The positioning of NGC 6384 means that we have to peer at it past many dazzling foreground Milky Way stars that are scattered across this image.

Great Nebula in Orion

The Great Nebula in Orion an immense, nearby starbirth region, is probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulas. Here, glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1500 light-years away.

Photographs of outer space and our universe. This is the Orion Nebula. Some people say that it makes them feel small when looking at those pictures; it makes me feel


Would love to know what nebula this is. This is a color-enhanced, flipped version of a portion of the Orion Nebula showing baby star formation.

Wolf-Rayet Bubble Nebula | NOAO image of a Wolf-Rayet star and it's bubble.

A Wolf-Rayet Bubble Nebula surrounds a Wolf-Rayet star. There are different types of WR-nebula, based on their formation mechanism: regions nebulae bubbles hydrogen voids and shells (may be assoc. The nebula shown is a 'wind-blown bubbles' type

Informally known as the "Soap Bubble Nebula", this planetary nebula is officially known as PN G75.5+1.7.

Pop goes the supernova! Actually, that's planetary nebula PN or better known as the Soap Bubble Nebula, which was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich back in Just look at it and wonder what other marvels does the Universe have in stock?


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

Exquisite Butterfly Nebula

The Butterfly Nebula - NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae.
