Brazilian astronomers said Friday they had found two star clusters forming in a remote part of our Milky Way galaxy where such a thing was previously thought impossible. (Show's to go you, nature finds a way.)

A new image taken with ESO's VISTA survey telescope reveals the Trifid Nebula in a new light. By observing in infrared light, astronomers can see right through the central parts of the Milky Way and spot many previously hidden .

Stars Swarm Like Celestial Bees in Stunning New Photo A new image of Messier 55 from ESO's VISTA infrared survey telescope shows tens of thousands of stars crowded together like a swarm of bees. The stars are some of the oldest in the universe.

A highly bright green comet is about to put an amazing shoe for star gazers. This particular icy space rock, called Comet Linear, will observable from next week and it is going to be about 100 times brighter than astronomers had anticipated. Sky gazers, specially, in the southern hemisphere, were got to view of the comet earlier this week, after it came across Earth at 3.3 million miles away. At the moment, Comet Linear is moving swiftly into sight from the northern hemisphere. But because…

A mere 12.5 million light-years from Earth, irregular dwarf galaxy NGC 4449 lies within the confines of Canes Venatici, the constellation of the Hunting Dogs. About the size of our Milky Way's satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud, NGC 4449 is undergoing an intense episode of star formation, evidenced by its wealth of young blue star clusters, pinkish star forming regions, and obscuring dust clouds in this deep color portrait.

#ESO137001 | The spiral galaxy ESO 137-001 looks like a dandelion caught in a breeze in this new composite image from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The galaxy is zooming toward the upper left of this image, in between other galaxies in the Norma cluster located over 200 million light-years away. The road is harsh: intergalactic gas in the Norma cluster is sparse, but so hot at 180 million degrees Fahrenheit that it glows in X-rays detected by Chandra (blue).

Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-Ray Observatory have captured a stunning new image of the spiral galaxy ESO
