Space. The final frontier.

Beautiful images from the vast space. Call me a geek, but I will never stop from looking up at the starts as often as possible, imagining all that is beyond our comprehension about the Universe.

This infrared view from the Herschel Space Observatory explores the Andromeda Galaxy, the closest large spiral galaxy to our own Milky Way. Only 2.5 million light-years distant, the famous island universe is also known to astronomers as M31. Andromeda spans over 200,000 light-years making it more the twice the size of the Milky Way.

Solar Eruption this past Dec 12, 2012 - The length of the eruption extends about 160,000 miles out from the sun. This relatively minor eruption is 20 times the diameter of our Earth.

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 26,000 light years away.

Dust of the Orion Nebula, Image Credit & Copyright: Nicolás Villegas. What surrounds a hotbed of star formation? In the case of the Orion Nebula -- dust. The entire Orion field, located about 1600 light years away, is inundated with intricate and picturesque filaments of dust. Opaque to visible light, dust is created in the outer atmosphere of massive cool stars and expelled by a strong outer wind of particles. The Trapezium and other forming star clusters are embedded in the nebula. The intr...
