A MOO J1142+1527 está a 8,5 bilhões de anos-luz de nós

The galaxy cluster called MOO can be seen here as it existed when light left it billion years ago. - Whopping galaxy cluster spotted with help of NASA telescopes

Blazing Black Holes Spotted in Spiral Beauty This new view of spiral galaxy IC also known as Caldwell includes data from NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR. IC 342 lies 7 million light-years away in the Camelopardalis constellation.

This mosaic image of Andromeda spiral galaxy -- showing explosive stars in its interior and cooler, dusty stars forming in its many rings --  combines observations from the Herschel Space Observatory taken in infrared light  (the orange hues), and the XMM-Newton telescope captured in X-rays (the blues). Andromeda is our nearest large neighbor -- located about 2.5 million light-years away and holds nearly trillion stars. Our Milky Way galaxy contains about 200 - 400 billion stars.

Scientists discover planets which travel up to 30million miles per hour after coming into contact with black holes

NGC 1850 is an unusual double cluster that lies in the bar of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way

Globular cluster NGC light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud in Dorado: surrounded by nebula-like material akin to Star Trek shields, believed to be generated during supernova events throughout it’s history. It is actually 2 clusters:

The Seven Sisters (or Pleiades) in the Taurus constellation star clusters.

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.
