Our eyes are as beautiful as the galactic nebulae. We're part of the universe as much as the universe is part of us.

Hubble's 20th anniversary image shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks. It seems unimaginable that things like this exists. It looks so solid, so imposing! It looks unreal!

Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsävainio observed IC 1396, making a gorgeous image of it. But he wasn’t satisfied just doing that. He’d been playing with making 3D images for some time, and decided this might be a good opportunity to make a model of the structure of the nebula, and then create an animated GIF of it.

This image of supernova remnant 0509-67.5 was made by combining data from two of NASA's Great Observatories. Optical data of SNR 0509-67.5 and its accompanying star field, taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, are composited with X-ray images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory.

Necklace Nebula, PN G054.2-03.4. The Necklace Nebula is the exploded aftermath of a giant star that came too close to its Sun-like binary companion. The two stars that produced the nebula live in a relatively small orbit around each other. They have a period of 1.2 days and a separation on the order of 5 times the radius of the Sun. The bright ring measures 12 trillion miles wide.
