The 'hand of God' nebula  - A small, dense object only twelve miles in diameter is responsible for this beautiful X-ray nebula that spans 150 light years. At the center of this image made by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is a very young and powerful pulsar, known as PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short. The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic…

A frighteningly shaped reflection nebula, this cosmic crone is about 800 light-years away though. Its malevolent visage seems to glare toward nearby bright star Rigel in Orion, just off the right edge of this frame. More formally known as IC 2118, the interstellar cloud of dust and gas is nearly 70 light-years across, its dust grains reflecting Rigel’s starlight. In this composite portrait, the nebula’s color is caused not only by the star’s intense bluish light but because...

Helix Nebula..oh my sweet Lord, how SPECTACULAR is this..my heart says it is  "the eye of God"   wow!!

Nebulosa de Hélix Fonte da imagem: ESO Conhecida popularmente como "o olho de Deus", se encontra na constelação de Aquário e é a nebulosa mais próxima da Terra anos-luz). É um bom exemplo visual do que acontece quando estrelas como o nosso Sol morrem.

IC 405 is an emission / reflection nebula located in the constellation Auriga
