Cat's Paw Nebula.

Using Gravity to Peer into the Most Violent Places in the Universe: Colliding Black Holes

The black hole in galaxy NGC 1277 has a mass of 17 billion suns (for comparison, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way has a mass of about 4 million Suns) and contains an absolutely extraordinary 14% of the total mass of the galaxy it is in. The size of NGC 1277 is all the more astonishing because the surrounding galaxy is very small. This could be the largest supermassive black hole found to date.

Very faint planetary nebula Abell 7 is some 1,800 light-years distant, just south of Orion in planet Earth's skies in the constellation Lepus, The Hare. A planetary nebula represents a very brief final phase in stellar evolution that our own Sun will experience 5 billion years hence, as the nebula's central, once sun-like star shrugs off its outer layers. Abell 7 itself is estimated to be 20,000 years old. Its central star is seen here as a fading white dwarf some 10 billion years old.

A stellar nursery in the Cygnus X star forming region

The core of our galaxy, seen in infrared light by the Spitzer Space Telescope. Blue light is from stars, green light is from polycyclic carbon molecules, yellow and red light is from the thermal glow of warm dust.  This image spans approximately 1000 light years by 1600 light years.  The galactic core is 26000 light years away.
