NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey captured this view of a runaway star racing away from its original home. Surrounded by a glowing cloud of gas and dust, the star AE Aurigae appears on fire. Appropriately, the cloud is called the Flaming Star nebula.
Pillars of Creation - Taken in 1995 by Hubble Telescope, forming in Eagle Nebula light years away. And it's about 4 light years tall! Personally, one of the most beautiful, inspiring and fascinating images I've ever seen :).
