The size of our planet

The "Pillars of Creation" photo of the Eagle Nebula. Taken by the Hubble Telescope on April 1, 1995.

Spacecraft Cassini orbiting Saturn has recorded yet another amazing view. Titan, Saturn's largest moon, appears above. The rings of Saturn are seen as a thin line because they are so flat and imaged nearly edge on. Details of Saturn's rings are therefore best visible in the dark ring shadows seen across the giant planet's cloud tops. Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute/J. Major.

Stellar Ripple Approximately 100 million years ago, a smaller galaxy plunged through the heart of the Cartwheel galaxy, creating ripples of brief star formation. In this image, the first ripple appears as an ultraviolet-bright blue outer ring so powerful that it may be one of the most powerful UV-emitting galaxies in the nearby universe.

Largest spiral galaxy in the universe (so far)


Harvest Moon

This photograph taken by Voyager 1 shows a close up of the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, a storm that has been raging in the gas giant's atmosphere for at least three hundred years. The white spot shows another cloud system that is believed to have formed around 1940.
