    This composite image shows a superbubble in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small satellite galaxy of the Milky Way located about 160,000 light years from Earth. Many new stars, some of them very massive, are forming in the star cluster NGC 1929, which is embedded in the nebula N44, so named because it is the 44th nebula in a catalog of such objects in the Magellanic Clouds. The massive stars produce intense radiation, expel matter at high speeds, and race through their evolution to explo...

    Large Magellanic Cloud - by Deep Space Photography - This vibrant infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way galaxy. Located160,000 light-years from Earth, it is one of a handful of dwarf galaxies that orbit the Milky Way.

    isn't this lovely? and it reminds me of mother of pearl, too. i love space pictures - planets, nebulas, stars, etc. A rainbow of the Universe. If I could do anything, I would study astronomy. The sky has always intrigued me and I would love to learn all I can about it. I would love to be as close as possible to this science. It is a beautiful party of God's creation.

    Our entire solar system in this little dot of the Milky Way galaxy. There are around 300,000,000,000 stars in the Milky Way galaxy alone. Each star having possibly one or more planets in orbit.

    This view across 24,000 light years of the Milky Way Galaxy was taken by Hubble to assess the various ages, in the billions of years, of the galaxy's various stars. Of interest is the small dots that appear between the larger, brighter stars of the Milky Way -- those are numerous distant galaxies beyond our own. (NASA, ESA, and L. Bedin, STScI)

    Large Magellanic Cloud Nearly 200,000 light-years from Earth, the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, floats in space, in a long and slow dance around our galaxy. Vast clouds of gas within it slowly collapse to form new stars. In turn, these light up the gas clouds in a riot of colors, visible in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

    N44C is the designation for a region of glowing hydrogen gas surrounding an association of young stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby, small companion galaxy to the Milky Way visible from the Southern Hemisphere.

    The Milky Way

    Hubble Views Grand Star-Forming Region This massive, young stellar grouping, called R136, is only a few million years old and resides in the 30 Doradus Nebula, a turbulent star-birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. There is no known star-forming region in the Milky Way Galaxy as large or as prolific as 30 Doradus.

    A Tall Milky Way

    Andromeda in Infrared. It is the closest galaxy to the Milky way at about 250 million light years distant. It will collide with our own galaxy in a few billion years to create one massive galaxy. I wonder what will happen when the two super massive black holes at the centre of our galaxies collide?
