ASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, stellar winds flowing out from the fast-moving star Zeta Ophiuchi are creating a bow shock seen as glowing gossamer threads, which, for this star, are only seen in infrared light.
NASA Telescope Spots Cosmic Rose in Deep Space ~~ Photo Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA ~~ This infrared image from NASA's WISE space telescope shows a cosmic rosebud blossoming with new stars, including the Berkeley 59 cluster and a supernova remnant.
The Lagoon Nebula ~ captured in all its psychedelic glory by the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii. An all-time favorite of sky-watchers on both hemispheres, the Lagoon Nebula (Messier or is among the most striking examples of a stellar nursery in our n

A Hubble Space Telescope photo of a rapidly spinning neutron star, also known as a pulsar, millions of light-years away.
The North American Nebula. This swirling landscape of stars is known as the North American nebula. In visible light, the region resembles North America, but in this new infrared view from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, the continent disappears.
"Massive Star Makes Waves".The giant star Zeta Ophiuchi, a young, large and hot star located around 370 light-years away, is having a 'shocking' effect on the surrounding dust clouds in this infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
Galactic Pyrotechnics on Display Anomalous arms are seen in this composite image of NGC 4258 from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observator, NSF's Karl Jansky Very Large Array, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope.
Clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.
Zeta Ophiuchus, a massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of
The Horse Head Nebula is a cloud of ionized- hydrogen in the constellation Orion. The clouds are lit from within by young hot stars. The interstellar dust absobs the light from part of ionized cloud creating this beautiful contrast
This stunning space wallpaper reveals which is an enormous stellar nursery about 6200 light-years away in the Perseus Arm, one of the Milky Way galaxy’s main spiral arms, that hosts both low- and high-mass star formation.
NGC Revealing Hidden Black Holes The spiral galaxy NGC 3627 is located about 30 million light years from Earth. This composite image includes X-ray data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope (re
The Ant Nebula, a cloud of dust and gas whose technical name is resembles an ant when observed using ground-based telescopes. The nebula lies within our galaxy between and light years from Earth. Photo taken by Hubble Telescope.
