    ♥ The “Black Widow” pulsar is moving through the galaxy at a speed of almost a million kilometers per hour. A bow shock wave due to this motion is visible to optical telescopes, shown in this image as the greenish crescent shape. The pressure behind the bow shock creates a second shock wave that sweeps the cloud of high-energy particles back from the pulsar to form the cocoon.

Pulsar: "Black Widow," is moving through the galaxy at a speed of almost a million kilometers per hour.

This is an image of the Black Widow Pulsar moving through our galaxy at one million kilometers per hour. That is its bow shock wave. It looks like the grim reaper to me and if it passed too close to us, it would be.

The Black Eye Galaxy (also called Sleeping Beauty Galaxy; designated M64) absorbed a satellite galaxy that collided with it, perhaps more than one billion years ago. Active formation of new stars is occurring in the shear region where the oppositely rotating gases collide, are compressed, and contract. It is approximately 17 million light years from Earth. The inner region has a radius of only approximately 3,000 light-years, while the outer section extends another 40,000 light-years.

The Black Eyed Galaxy - also known as the Sleeping Beauty Galaxy... stunning!

M64 or Black Eye Galaxy: diameter of 43,000 light-years, approximately 17 million light-years from earth. Mind blowing!

ACEO Black Widow Nebula - Two opposing bubbles are being formed in opposite directions by the powerful outflows from massive groups of forming stars. In the Spitzer Telescope image, the baby stars can be seen as specks of yellow where the two bubbles overlap.
