Explore Helix Nebula, Planetary Nebula, and more!

The Helix Nebula is 700 light-years away from Earth, but screened before audience's eyes in reconstructed 3D in Hidden…

File:Screenshot from IMAX® movie Hidden Universe showing the Helix Nebula in infrared.jpg The universe is our creator and is constantly watching over everything.

This is a photo taken by Hubble. Scientists cannot begin to figure out what it is. I like to think of it as the gate of heaven.

Swan nebula~ the heavens declare the glory of God. I don't know how scientists account for the "spire" formations.

Look through the cosmic cloud cataloged as NGC 281 and you might miss the stars of open cluster IC But, formed within the nebula, that cluster's young, massive stars ultimately power the pervasive nebular glow.

Spitzer Space Telescope image of the Milky Way

This nebula, which is in the constellation of Scutum, has no common name since it is hidden behind dust clouds. It takes an infrared telescope like NASA's Spitzer to see through this dark veil and reveal this spectacular hidden nebula.

The Seyfert galaxy NGC 1097, in the constellation of Fornax (The Furnace), is seen in this image taken by ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT). A tiny elliptical companion galaxy, NGC 1097A, is also visible at the top left.  NGC 1097, the larger galaxy, also has four faint jets — too faint to be seen in this image — that emerge from its center, forming an X-shaped pattern, and are the longest visible-wavelength jets of any known galaxy.

Earth as seen from the ISS(International Space Station) . how wonderously beautiful is our planet!

Late Night Randomness is a collection of photos we have found in searching the web that don’t necessarily fit in with our other posts or are perhaps a little too edgy to present earlier in the day.

Don't let it's cool blue color fool you, the filaments in this behemoth of a nebula are estimated to be between a scorching 11,000 and 18,000 K (19,341 - 31,941 deg Fahrenheit). The image was created using 2 narrow band filters (F502N - blue, F673 - Red, added together to make a computer generated green layer) and 1 medium band filter (F547M - Cyan) obtained from the Hubble ESO/ST-ECF Archive. All data was processed using the Fits Liberator's Linear stretch function. The eight separate panes…

Iris, the Stars Are Bright Pin It Credit: Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope/Coelum 11/3/14: The Iris Nebula, NGC 7023, lies 1,300 light-years away in the constellation Cepheus.

The Iris Nebula, NGC lies light-years away in the constellation Cepheus. Atoms floating in the interstellar medium, including carbon and silicon, combine into tiny particles about the dimension of a visible light wave, causing scattering of light.
