The Milky Way and Shooting Star, Troodos Square, Cyprus

AE Aurigae & IC 405 (Flaming Star Nebula). The Flaming Star nebula lies about 1500 ly away, spans about 5 ly, & is visible with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga). stellar-indulgence

Carina Nebula

Gravity bends more than just space. It bends time. The early results from Gravity Probe B, one of NASA’s most complicated satellites, confirmed ‘to a precision of better than 1 per cent’ the assertion Einstein made 90 years ago - that a massive object such as the Earth does indeed distort the fabric of space and time. This explains why GPS satellites must correct for time distortion: it passes more quickly in orbit than on the Earth.

NGC 1672 is a barred spiral Seyfert II galaxy, more than 60 mly away toward the southern constellation Dorado.

NASA’s Swift satellite picked up one of the brightest solar flares ever seen — not from our own sun, but a star 16 ly away. This flare packed the power of thousands of solar flares combined, and a flare of this magnitude from our own sun would have stripped Earth’s atmosphere and sterilized the planet. Astronomers say the flare (which would have been visible to the naked eye on 4/25/2008) caused Swifts’ Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope to shut down for safety reasons.

NGC 6357 - War and Peace Nebula

War and Peace Nebula - {[(∞)]}

Hoag's Object: A Strange Ring Galaxy: Hoag's Object spans about 100,000 ly and lies about 600 mly away toward the constellation Serpens. Coincident-ally, visible in the gap (at about one o'clock) is yet another ring galaxy that likely lies far in the distance.

Trifid Nebula (a.k.a. Messier 20 or NGC 6514).

NGC 6559 is a star-forming region (in Simeis 188) located at a distance of about 5000 light-years from Earth, in the constellation of Sagittarius, showing both emission (red) and reflection (bluish) regions.
