Astrophoto: Incredible Deep View of Globular Clusters Swarming the Sombrero Galaxy; each tiny box signifies a globular cluster; A globular cluster is a spherical collection of stars that orbits a galactic core as a satellite. Globular clusters are very tightly bound by gravity, which gives them their spherical shapes and relatively high stellar densities toward their centers (Wikipedia). Our Milky Way Galaxy has numerous globular clusters.

- Barred Spiral Galaxies have stars composed bar shapes at the center of the Galaxy rotating around the bulge, these bars are effecting the motion of the galaxy and their spiral arms. Barred Spiral Galaxies are the most common Spiral Galaxies. The Milky Way is one of them. - Irregular Galaxies do not have a shape and are quite uncommon, they are thought to be the aftermath of Galaxies interactions. (continua nos comentários) Vi no facebook
Galaxy Classifications: From Dwarfs to Spirals and Beyond Surprisingly, over the course of most of humanity's existence, we had no idea that other galaxies even existed. All we could see was our own little corner of the universe. It wasn't until the early 1900's that the nature of the so-called "Andromeda nebula" was discerned. Edwin Hubble settled the galaxy vs. nebula debate in 1925, and it was finally revealed that this "nebula" was actually a galaxy containing some 400
Types of galactic formations. Our Milky Way is a beautiful example of a spiral galaxy.

***MESSIER 77*** was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1780, who originally described it as a nebula. Méchain then communicated his discovery to Charles Messier, who subsequently listed the object in his catalog. Both Messier and William Herschel described this galaxy as a star cluster. via Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dark-Matter/113077625507306 (629×960)
Face-on spiral galaxy M77 lies a mere 60 million light-years away toward the aquatic constellation Cetus. Also known as NGC 1068, its very bright core is well studied by astronomers exploring the mysteries of supermassive black holes in active galaxies. While M77 is also seen at x-ray, ultraviolet, infrared, and radio wavelengths, this visible light image highlights another remarkable aspect of the galaxy. In the picture, the data has been enhanced to show outer faint details

Bucket list: Kayaking the Celestial Falls, Oregon. What an adventure this must be.
Christie Glissmeyer of Hood River, Oregon is leading the women's white water boating industry and pushing the boundaries to the next level. Glissmeyer is the women's world waterfall record holder of 82 feet off of Metlako Falls. She has also won multiple white water kayaking competitions. Pictured here is Celestial Falls along the White River in Oregon, which is tucked away close to a sleepy cowboy town in Tygh Valley. On an icy 28 degree Super Bowl Sunday morning Christie is setting herself up for the fifty+ footer off of the falls which was pumping out about 260 CFS that day.

Final Frontier, Mists, Eaglenebula, Star, Eagles, Space, Universe
Located approximately 7,000 light-years from Earth and nestled in the constellation Serpens lays the ultimate stellar nursery: the Eagle Nebula. This planetary nebula is home to seven strikingly beautiful pillars, most commonly referred to as the “Pillars of Creation," because it is in these towers that new stars are formed. #nebula #EagleNebula
The Eagle Nebula via the Hubble Space Telescope. How can that not inspire? Far out in the reaches of the universe, stars are dancing...every time I look at it I see new images, new stories... @theweekmagazine
This cloud of gas and dust is a large portion of the Eagle Nebula, a dense star-forming region. Released in 2005, this photo from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a spire that is approximately 57 trillion miles high — about twice the distance from our Sun to the next nearest star.

The Eagle Has Risen: Stellar Spire in the Eagle Nebula - Hubble Space #universe| http://exploringuniverse416.blogspot.com
The Eagle Nebula is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens, discovered by Jean-Philippe de Cheseaux in 1745-46. Its name derives from its shape that is thought to resemble an eagle. It is the subject of the famous "The Pillars of Creation" photograph by the Hubble Space Telescope that shows pillars of star-forming gas and dust within the #universe| http://exploringuniverse977.blogspot.com
The dominant colours in the image were produced by gas energized by the star cluster's powerful ultraviolet light. The blue colour at the top is from glowing oxygen. The red colon in the lower region is from glowing hydrogen. The Eagle Nebula image was taken in November 2004 with the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
