I can't believe this Hubble's star explosion time-lapse video is real. Time lapse video of Monoceros, light years away. The variable red star got so big this it became one of the largest stars ever observed, producing more light than the Sun.
The Sombrero Galaxy - 28 million light years from Earth - was voted the most beautiful picture taken by Hubble Telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, are as spectacular as it’s appearance. It has 800 billion suns and is light years across.
I'm surprised nobody has pinned this by now! Video footage from El Teide, the highest mountain in Spain, and one of the best places (As you will see) in the world to film/photograph stars and galaxies. if you've never seen this, I can honestly say
Located approximately 300 million light-years away in the constellation of Volans, AM is one of the most spectacular ‘Ring Galaxies’ currently known. Image Credit: NASA, ESA, and The Hubble Heritage Team (AURA/STScI)
Giant telescope captures dying star's ghost glowing in deep space
The wispy nebula running top to bottom of this image is a nearby star-forming region. In visible light, the dust within the nebula obscures and reflects the light of the stars within and behind it, giving rise to several cataloged nebulae.
