The Eye of God~~Dust and the Helix Nebula ~ Dust makes this cosmic eye look red. The eerie Spitzer Space Telescope image shows infrared radiation from the well-studied Helix Nebula (NGC a mere 700 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius
Supernova Remnant NGC 2060 - NGC 2060 was a supernova that occurred in Large Magellanic Cloud and is part of Tarantula Nebula. The name NGC 2060 is also used for the associated star cluster. It was formed by a supernova about years ago.
This glowing emerald nebula seen by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has been sculpted by the powerful light of giant "O" stars. O stars are the most massive type of star known to exist. Named RCW this region of hot gas and glowing dust can be found in
n this composite image, visible-light observations by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope are combined with infrared data from the ground-based Large Binocular Telescope in Arizona to assemble a dramatic view of the well-known Ring Nebula.
A dying star throws a cosmic tantrum in this combined image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Galaxy Evolution Explorer. The star's dusty outer layers are unraveling into space, glowing from the intense ultraviolet radiation being pumped out by
