Explore Cassiopeia Constellation and more!

A new image taken with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope provides a detailed look at the tattered remains of a supernova explosion known as Cassiopeia A (Cas A). It is the youngest known remnant from a supernova explosion in the Milky Way. The new Hubble image shows the complex and intricate structure of the star's shattered fragments.

⭐ Astronomy fact 31 of A new star is born in our galaxy roughly every 18 days.

Betelgeuse ~ The bright, pinkish-white star at upper left of Orion. A red supergiant, it is one of the largest and most luminous stars known. Betelgeuse is approximately 640 light-years away from Earth. If it were at the center of our solar system, its surface would extend to the orbit of Jupiter and beyond, wholly engulfing Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Betelgeuse is a star nearing the end of its life. (NASA)

Black Hole-Powered Jets Plow Into Galaxy  This composite image of a galaxy illustrates how the intense gravity of a supermassive black hole can be tapped to generate immense power. The image contains X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), optical light obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope (gold) and radio waves from the NSF’s Very Large Array (pink).
