♥ I just love looking at M 42, the Orion Nebula. .. One of the most prominent emission nebulas visible to the naked eye and a good pair of binoculars.

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.

Butterfly Nebula NGC 6302 is a bipolar planetary nebula in constellation Scorpius. Its structure is among most complex. The dainty looking celestial insect wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas released by a dying star heated to over 36,000 deg F, tearing across space at over 600,000 MPH—fast enough to travel from Earth to the Moon in 24 minutes! -Research by Dianadee:) -> http://www.pinterest.com/DianaDeeOsborne/universe-lights -  Pin photo via Jerzee…

A butterfly-shaped nebula, NGC surrounds a dying star. It's just one of four brain-shattering images from the new wide-field camera aboard the upgraded Hubble Space Telescope.

Eye of Good Nebula

Helix Nebula - Often referred to as "The Eye of God". My favourite nebula!

This is one of the most-famous astronomy photos in the world. Called "The Pillars of Creation" it was taken by the Hubble telescope in 1995 and shows massive columns of hydrogen gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula—7,000 light years from Earth.     Researchers took more images of this region of space using the Spitzer Space Telescope. These shots suggest that the Pillars of Creation might actually be long gone—destroyed thousands of years ago by a nearby supernova.

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 :).

Giant Star Trail A new ultraviolet mosaic from NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer shows a speeding star that is leaving an enormous trail of "seeds" for new solar systems. The star, named Mira (pronounced my-rah) after the latin word for "wonderful," is shedding material that will be recycled into new stars, planets and possibly even life as it hurls through our galaxy.
