The unusual spiral galaxy, Messier has asymmetric spiral arms and a displaced core. Messier 66 is the largest member of the Leo Triplet, a trio of interacting spiral galaxies.

The iconic Ring Nebula may seem like just a stunning circle of wispy interstellar gas, but new images from the Hubble Space Telescope reveal it to be more like a deep-space jelly doughnut, scientists say.

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 colony of hot, young stars is stirring up the cosmic scene in this new picture from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The image shows the Orion nebula, a happening place where stars are born.

The Hubble Extreme Deep Field is most distant image of the Universe ever created. Its diameter is one tenth the width of the full moon, its area is one 30 millionth of the entire sky. Within this field of view there are more than 5000 galaxies, 600 trillion stars and 50 quadrillion planets and moons. This photograph is a slice of infinity, proof of the immense scale of reality.

Saturn eclipsing the sun, with the Earth visible in the upper left section of Saturn's rings. In 2009, NASA's robotic Cassini spacecraft drifted in Saturn's shadow for about 12 hours and Cassini saw a view unlike any other.  The rings light up so much that new rings were discovered. (NASA/APOD)

“Not just beautiful, though--the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing.”

Pismis located at the core of small open star cluster Pismis can be seen in this image provided by NASA and ESA. The star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 that extends on the arm of the Sagittarius constellation.

IC 342, the Hidden Galaxy, is positioned only 10 degrees above the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, so its light is heavily obscured and reddened by dust. It is 7 million light-years away but is not part of our Local Group of galaxies: Bruce Waddington

Cúmulo Trumpler 16. Es un cúmulo abierto en la Nebulosa Carina, una inmensa caldera de gas y polvo en la constelación de Carina, la Quilla. WR 25 y Tr16-244, un par de estrellas colosales ubicadas dentro del cúmulo. WR 25 es la más brillante; Tr16-244 vecina es la tercera más brillante, encima a la izquierda de WR 25. La segunda más brillante, a la izquierda de WR 25, es una estrella de baja masa situada mucho más cerca de la Tierra que la nebulosa de Carina.

~~Hubble reveals heart of Lagoon Nebula ~ faintly visible to the naked eye on dark nights as a small patch of grey in the heart of the Milky Way by NASA Goddard Photo and Video~~

This close-up shot of the center of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier clearly shows the delicate structures formed when the powerful radiation of young stars interacts with the hydrogen cloud they formed.
