NASA Mars Spacecraft Detects Large Changes in Martian Sand Dunes
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has revealed that movement in sand dune fields on the Red Planet occurs on a surprisingly large scale, about the same as in dune fields on Earth.
[May 9, 2012] NASA: "NASA Spacecraft Detects Changes in Martian Sand Dunes -- Advancing Dune in Nili Patera, Mars Back-and-forth blinking of this two-image animation shows movement of a sand dune on Mars. The images are part of a study published by Nature on May 9, 2012, reporting movement of Martian sand dunes at about the same flux (volume per time) as movement of dunes in Antarctica on Earth."
This floating ring is the size of a galaxy. In fact, it is part of the Sombrero Galaxy, one of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infra-red light. The above image, digitally sharpened, shows the infra-red glow, recently recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope, superposed in false-color on an existing image taken by NASA's Hubble Space
M104 also catalogued as NGC 4594 and popularly known as The Sombrero Galaxy, is an unbarred spiral galaxy appearing in the constellation Virgo, and located 28 million light years from Earth.

This gorgeous infrared image offers a colorful spin on a famous Hubble image of the Sombrero Galaxy. It's actually a spiral galaxy much like the Milky Way...even if it looks more like a giant floating ring than anything else.
Sombrero galaxy. Scientists suspect that it probably has a super massive black hole at its center, just like our own Milky Way. This particular picture was created from pictures taken by Hubble Space Telescope as well as Spitzer.

By looking deep into space, the Hubble has been able to photograph the past. Incredibly, with the help of Hubble, astronomers have been able to see what the universe looked like 600 million years after the Big Bang. It is believed that the firestorm of starbirth along the dark dust rift of Centaurus A is a result of a violent collision.

A cosmic butterfly hovers in a lightly populated region of the Milky Way, 2,000 light years from Earth. Known as Sharpless 2-106, it gets its roughly symmetrical shape from outrushing heat streaming into a cold environment.

Celestial ‘Snow Angel’ Dazzles in Hubble Telescope Photo... This image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows Sh 2-106, or S106 for short. This is a compact star forming region in the constellation Cygnus (The Swan). Just in time for the holidays, the Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a spectacular view of a star-forming region in our Milky Way galaxy that looks like a snow angel in deep space. This region, called Sharples 2-106 (or S106 for short) is located nearly 2,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation of Cygnus (The Swan). The nebula is found in a relatively isolated part of the Milky Way, researchers said. The S106 nebula measures several light-years across, and contains vast clouds of gas that resemble outstretched wings amidst an hourglass shape. The light from the glowing gas is colored blue in this image. Hubble’s view captures furious activity in the nebula, with ridges and ripples of super-hot gas mixing with the cooler interstellar medium. A massive young star, called Infrared Source 4 or IRS 4, is responsible for this turbulence, scientists said. CREDIT: NASA/ESA
Sagittarius never looked like this. A two-lobed nebula in the heart of the constellation, it lies some 3,000 light years from Earth and is home to the hottest star ever recorded.

The Red Spider Nebula in the constellation Sagittarius is about 3000 light years away.
NGC 6537 a.k.a The Red Spider Nebula is a planetary nebula located in the constellation Sagittarius. The nebula has a prominent two-lobed shape, possibly due to a binary companion or magnetic fields.
Inferno The Carina Nebula is a huge and exceedingly hot mass of stars located 7,500 light years from Earth. Outflowing stellar wind and blistering ultraviolet radiation roil the primal gas cloud that gave birth to the stars, making the nebula a beautiful thing to look at—but from a very safe distance.

Carina Nebula that shows a region of star birth and death. The nebula contains at least a dozen brilliant stars that are 50 to 100 times the mass of our Sun. This is one of the largest panoramic images ever taken with Hubble Telescope (BusinessInsider 2012)

Just in from NASA, a spectacular image assembled from 48 frames taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the Carina Nebula 7500 light-years away, which means we are seeing these stars as they were in 5500 BC — making this the oldest picture on Shorpy so far. The bright star at left is Eta Carinae, which can be seen throwing off two enormous lobes of gas prior to exploding — possibly in the next few thousand years, maybe tomorrow — as a titanic supernova.
Object Name: Carina Nebula, NGC 3372 Object Description: Emission Nebula in the Milky Way Galaxy In celebration of the 17th anniversary of the launch and deployment of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, a team of astronomers is releasing one of the largest panoramic images ever taken with Hubble’s cameras. It is a 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula where a maelstrom of star birth – and death – is taking place.
Best Of European Space Agency Photos Panorama Of The Carina Nebula This Hubble Space Telescope image shows the central region of the Carina Nebula where star birth – and death – is taking place. The Carina Nebula is about 7500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina.

Did NASA satellite capture giant UFO surfing around the sun? The video shows what looks like a metallic, jointed spaceship with a gigantic extension, perhaps a boom arm, anchored off its lower end. The-Icarus-spacecraft-flying close to the sun looks unnervingly like a huge, metallic 'mothership' familiar from Hollywood blockbusters. The picture was released by Nasa's sun-watching Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, known as SOHO - has become an immediate cult hit on the internet.

A beautiful prominence eruption producing a coronal mass ejection (CME) shot off the east limb (left side) of the sun on April 16, 2012. Such eruptions are often associated with solar flares, and in this case an M1 class (medium-sized) flare occurred at the same time, peaking at 1:45 PM EDT. The CME was not aimed toward Earth.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured this image of an M7.9 class flare on March 13, 2012. A solar flare is an intense burst of radiation coming from the release of magnetic energy associated with sunspots. Flares are our solar system’s largest explosive events. They are seen as bright areas on the sun and last from mere minutes to several hours.

Orion's Rainbow of Infrared Light This new view of the Orion nebula highlights fledging stars hidden in the gas and clouds. It shows infrared observations taken by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the European Space Agency's Herschel mission, in which NASA plays an important role. A star forms as a clump of this gas and dust collapses, creating a warm glob of material fed by an encircling disk.
Orion Nebula shows us how stars are born. This new view of the Orion Nebula shows embryonic stars within extensive gas and dust clouds. Combining far-infrared observations from the Herschel Space Observatory and mid-infrared observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, the image shows newly forming stars surrounded by remnant gas and dust in the form of discs and larger envelopes.

GRID-SPHERE PASSIVE COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE. n 1959 the USAF became interested in the use of satellites as space reflectors for long distance communications. One possibility was a metalized balloon-type structure that could be boosted into space in a small container and inflated after it reached orbit. The NASA ECHO I, launched Aug. 12, 1960, was one of these.

This sharp cosmic portrait features glowing gas and obscuring dust clouds in IC 1795, a star forming region in the northern constellation Cassiopeia. Also cataloged as NGC 896, the nebula's remarkable details, shown in its dominant red color, were captured using a sensitive camera, and long exposures that include image data from a narrowband filter. The narrow filter transmits only H-alpha light, the red light of hydrogen atoms.
