The edge of #RCW86 | During the #Apollo flights astronauts reported seeing odd flashes of light, visible even with their eyes closed. Since then we have learned that the cause was cosmic rays, extremely energetic particles that reach Earth from outside the solar system and are constantly bombarding its atmosphere. Once you arrive on Earth still they have enough energy to cause failure of electronic components. Galactic cosmic rays come from sources inside our home galaxy, the Milky Way...
an image of the sky with stars and clouds in it, as seen from space
A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324), a name given to it by John Herschel in the 19th century. The Keyhole Nebula is actually a much smaller and darker cloud of cold molecules and dust, containing bright filaments of hot, fluorescing gas, silhouetted against the much brighter background nebula.

Hubble Telescope Captures Sharpest Image Yet of Mysterious Red Rectangle
Hubble Telescope Captures Sharpest Image Yet of Mysterious Red Rectangle | The Red Rectangle is so named because of its strange shape and striking color. But this stellar nebula looks more like a cosmic "X" in this new image from Hubble.

So this cloud is totally photobombing the green Aurora Borealis here... Northern Lights are best seen outside the cities' light pollution and on clear skies in the period of November to March. Photograph at Lake Myvatn, Iceland by Park Jongwoo on 500px.

A mysterious blast of light spotted earlier this year near the constellation Leo was actually the brightest gamma-ray burst ever recorded, and was triggered by an extremely powerful stellar explosion, new research reports. On April 27, several satellites — including NASA’s Swift satellite and Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope — observed an unusually bright burst of gamma radiation. The explosion unleashed an energetic jet of particles that traveled at nearly the speed of light, researchers sai...

Giant 'twisters' in the Lagoon Nebula
This Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image reveals a pair of one-half light-year long interstellar 'twisters' - eerie funnels and twisted-rope structures - in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8) which lies 5,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius.
