evil eye galaxy

Here are two more nebula galaxies. The pair are about 31 million light-years apart. Not far in the sky from the handle of the Big Dipper, they officially lie within the boundaries of the small constellation Canes Venatici.

Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons so far

This "family portrait" is a composite of the Jovian system: the edge of Jupiter with its Great Red Spot + Jupiter's 4 largest moons, known as the Galilean satellites. The moons (top-to-bottom): Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

Zeta Ophiuchus, a massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate 80,000 times higher than the Sun. Looks remarkably like a bow.

The breathtakingly beautiful Cocoon Nebula is located about 4,000 light years away toward the constellation of Cygnus. Hidden inside the Cocoon is a newly developing open cluster of stars dominated by a massive star in the center of the above image that opened a hole in an existing molecular cloud through which much of the glowing material flows. The same star, which formed about 100,000 years ago, provides the energy source for much of the emitted and reflected light from this nebula.

Orion's Belt.

Gaze out at infinity's endless stars and realize all the "stuff" that seems so huge in our lives really isn't. Even though we're on a teensy ball in this huge universe, worrying about our individua

Ghost nebula

The famous nebula in Orion, located about light-years from Earth, is actively making new stars today. Although the optical nebula is dominated by the light from four massive, hot young stars, IRAC reveals many other young stars still embedded in thei
