    Fireworks Galaxy Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/R. Kennicutt (U. of Ariz./Inst. of Astr., U. of Cambridge) and the SINGS Team NGC 6946, or "The Fireworks Galaxy," is a neighbor of our Milky Way galaxy. It is located approximately 10 million light-years away in Cepheus. This image was captured with the Spitzer space telescope's Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on June 23, 2008.

    Galaxy ESO 318-13 lies millions of light-years from Earth, but Hubble Space Telescope shows it with remarkable clarity in this image. The bright star that appears to shine from within the galaxy actually belongs to our galaxy. - Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA

    These bright beacons shine to us from the edges of the visible universe and are reminders to scientists of our universe's chaotic infancy. Quasars release more energy than hundreds of galaxies combined. The general consensus is that they aremonstrous black holes in the hearts of distant galaxies.
