Tulip Nebula: Only a few decades ago man had the audacity to claim that the universe was finite and that we had discovered all the galaxies that existed. Then Hubble came along and proved that we'd been a bit limited in our thinking. That in fact there were thousands of galaxies we hadn't dreamed existed. It's sort of like the flat earth syndrome. Now we think we know better

An aurora borealis seen from the International Space Station by umer zahid. - This is amazing and just reminds of us of how beautiful nature is! :)
An aurora (plural: auroras or aurorae) is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere.
Aurora Borealis as seen from the International Space Station. Beautiful. Words cannot describe the depth of beauty that God has bestowed on us, if we just open our eyes, release the hate from our hearts, and just let the beauty flow through you. I believe it would be a much better and easier time here on Earth.

Funzug.com | Top 10 Hubble Space Pictures
In this series (see other pics) astronomers selected the top 10 most amazing pictures taken by the Hubble space telescope in the last 16 years. "...they illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." Michael Hanlon/AH (Nov 25th, 2006) . After correcting an initial problem with the lens, when the Hubble Space Telescope was first launched in 1990, the floating astro-observatory began to relay back to Earth, incredible snapshots of the "final frontier" it was perusing. Recently, astronauts voted on the top photographs taken by Hubble, in its 16-year journey so far. Remarking in the article from the Daily Mail, reporter Michael Hanlon says the photos "illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." In this photo, the Hourglass Nebula, 8,000 light years away, has a pinched-in-the-middle look because the winds that shape it are weaker at the centre.

The Earth-facing side of the sun is mostly blank and quiet. This could change in the days ahead as a new sunspot emerges over the sun's southeastern limb. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory can see the active region's magnetic canopy, which is towering over the limb in advance of the sunspot itself. The core of the active region should show itself no later than Tuesday. Meanwhile, solar activity is low.

The Milky Way Over Mauna Kea In a clear sky from a dark location at the right time, a faint band of light becomes visible across the sky. Soon after your eyes become dark adapted, you might spot the band for the first time. It may then become obvious. Then spectacular. One reason for a growing astonishment might be the realization that this fuzzy swath contains billions of stars and is the disk of our very own spiral galaxy. Since we are inside this disk, the band appears to encircle the Earth. Visible in the above image, high above in the night sky, the band of the Milky Way Galaxy arcs. The bright spot just below the band is the planet Jupiter. In the foreground lies the moonlit caldera of the volcano Haleakala, located on the island of Maui in Hawaii, USA. A close look near the horizon will reveal light clouds and the dark but enormous Mauna Kea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The Bubble Nebula. Although it looks delicate, the 10 light-year diameter bubble offers evidence of violent processes at work. Above and right of the Bubble's center is a hot, O-type star, several 100,000 times more luminous and approximately 45 times more massive than the Sun. A fierce stellar wind and intense radiation from that star has blasted out the structure of glowing gas against denser material in a surrounding molecular cloud.

Hubble telescope captures view of deep space "Mystic Mountain"
This craggy fantasy mountaintop enshrouded by wispy clouds looks like a bizarre landscape from Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image, which is even more dramatic than fiction, captures the chaotic activity atop a pillar of gas and dust, three light-years tall, which is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars. The pillar is also being assaulted from within, as infant stars buried inside it fire off jets of gas that can be seen streaming from towering peaks. This turbulent cosmic pinnacle lies within a tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7500 light-years away in the southern constellation of Carina. The image celebrates the 20th anniversary of Hubble's launch and deployment into an orbit around the Earth. Scorching radiation and fast winds (streams of charged particles) from super-hot newborn stars in the nebula are shaping and compressing the pillar, causing new stars to form within it. Streamers of hot ionised gas can be seen flowing off the ridges of the structure, and wispy veils of gas and dust, illuminated by starlight, float around its towering peaks. The denser parts of the pillar are resisting being eroded by radiation. Nestled inside this dense mountain are fledgling stars. Long streamers of gas can be seen shooting in opposite directions from the pedestal at the top of the image. Another pair of jets is visible at another peak near the centre of the image. These jets, (known as HH 901 and HH 902, respectively, are signposts for new star birth and are launched by swirling gas and dust discs around the young stars, which allow material to slowly accrete onto the stellar surfaces. Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 observed the pillar on 1-2 February 2010. The colours in this composite image correspond to the glow of oxygen (blue), hydrogen and nitrogen (green), and sulphur (red).

I taught about this in Science today... what's cooler than the Cat's Eye Nebula?
Cat's Eye Nebula or NGC 6543, is a planetary nebula in the constellation of Draco. Structurally, it is one of the most complex nebulae known, with high-resolution Hubble Space Telescope observations revealing remarkable structures such as knots, jets, bubbles and sinewy arc-like features. In the center of the Cat's Eye there is a bright and hot star; around 1000 years ago this star lost its outer envelope, producing the nebula. It was discovered by William Herschel on February 15, 1786

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE: all of the Sun is hidden or eclipsed by the Moon. When the Moon's dark umbral shadow sweeps across Earth's surface, then a total eclipse of the Sun is seen. The track of the Moon's shadow across Earth's surface is called the Path of Totality. It is typically 10,000 miles long but only 100 miles or so wide. In order to observe the Sun totally eclipsed by the Moon, you must be in the path of totality. The total phase of a solar eclipse is very brief. It rarely lasts more than

The Fairy of Eagle Nebula. Fairypillar formation of Cosmic dust from outer space. The size of this formation is unimaginable! The dust sculptures of the Eagle Nebula are evaporating. As powerful starlight whittles away these cool cosmic mountains, the statuesque pillars that remain might be imagined as mythical beasts. Pictured above is one of several striking dust pillars of the Eagle Nebula that might be described as a gigantic alien fairy. This fairy, however, is ten light years tall and spews radiation much hotter than common fire. The greater Eagle Nebula, M16, is actually a giant evaporating shell of gas and dust inside of which is a growing cavity filled with a spectacular stellar nursery currently forming an open cluster of stars. The above image in scientifically re-assigned colors was released in 2005 as part of the fifteenth anniversary celebration of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope.
This is an extremely high definition Hubble Telescope shot of the Eagle Nebula. The Eagle has risen: Stellar spire in the Eagle Nebula. Stars in the Eagle Nebula are born in clouds of cold hydrogen gas that reside in chaotic neighbourhoods, where energy from young stars sculpts fantasy-like landscapes in the gas. The tower may be a giant incubator for those newborn stars. A torrent of ultraviolet light from a band of massive, hot, young stars [off the top of the image] is eroding the pillar.

Hubble Finds Dark Matter Ring in Galaxy Cluster. An international team of astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a ghostly ring of dark matter that was formed long ago during a titanic collision between two massive galaxy clusters. It is the first time that a dark matter distribution has been found that differs substantially from the distribution of ordinary matter.
Science on the big scale and the small scale is important for understanding the structure of the universe. The Hubble Space Telescope is looking for indications of dark matter in star clusters, while particle experiments are also hunting down this mysterious substance.
This Hubble Space Telescope composite image released in May 2007 shows a ghostly ring of dark matter in the galaxy cluster ZwCl0024+1652. In this image, a map showing how the gravity of the cluster distorts light from other galaxies is superimposed on a 2003 Hubble image of the cluster. The image is one of the strongest pieces of evidence to date for the existence of dark matter, an unknown substance that pervades the Universe.
Abell 1689 Galaxy Cluster is one of the most massive in the Universe. It is seen to warp space as predicted by Einstein's theory of gravity. The power of this gravitational lens depends on its mass, but the visible matter accounts for about 1% of the mass needed to make the bluish arcing images of back-ground galaxies. Most of the gravitational mass needed to warp space in this manner is in the form of dark matter
