Combined visible and infra-red light images of star forming region Sharpless 2-106. This nebula is located about 2,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Cygnus. It is 2 light-years long and 1/2 a light-year across. The central star of this nebula is more than 15 times the mass of our Sun. It formed less 100,000 years ago, making this one of the youngest star-forming regions known.

Jupiter's Great Red Spot. The Great Red Spot is a great anti-cyclonic (high pressure) storm akin to a hurricane on Earth, but it is enormous (three Earths would fit within its boundaries) and it has persisted for at least the 400 years that humans have observed it through telescopes. Since it is anti-cyclonic in Jupiter's Southern hemisphere, the rotation is counterclockwise, with a period of about 6 days. (A hurricane in Earth's Southern hemisphere rotates clockwise.)

Earth from Moon

A view of Earth from The Moon taken by NASA. The sunlight is coming from the left. This would put the right side limb of the earth in shadow. And man the Earth is big!

Mercury is the innermost and smallest planet in the Solar System, orbiting the Sun once every 87.969 Earth days. Mercury is similar in appearance to the Moon: it is heavily cratered with regions of smooth plains, has no natural satellites and no substantial atmosphere.

Far Side of the Sun: This image of the sun was taken on Wednesday with the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager onboard our Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory Ahead (STEREO-A) spacecraft, which collects images in several wavelengths of light that are invisible to the human eye. This image shows the sun in wavelengths of 171 angstroms, which are typically colorized in blue.
