#Astronomy: #Mayall’s object (also known as #Arp148) is the stunning result of an encounter between two galaxies resulting in a ring-shaped galaxy and a long-tailed companion, located almost 465 million light-years away within the constellation #UrsaMajor. The pair extends across 80 thousand light-years.

Spectacular New Hubble Image Of The Universe

Sagittarius Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy

Central area of the Milky Way galaxy, released by astronomers at the European Southern Observatory's Paranal Observatory in Chile. The photo shows 84 million stars in an image measuring 108,500×81,500, which contains nearly 9 billion pixels, and is actually a composite of thousands of individual photographs shot with the observatory's VISTA survey telescope.
