Spiral galaxy NGC 891 shows the edge of its dust-disk as a thick dark lane in this image. Supernovae winds blow the dust out of the plane into an extended halo, with a pressure resulting from the sudden, violent explosion of young, massive stars.

The picture shows a famous cosmic mirage known as the Einstein Cross, and is a direct visual confirmation of the theory of general relativity. It is one of the best examples of the phenomenon of gravitational lensing — the bending of light by gravity as predicted by Einstein in the early 20th century. In this case, the galaxy’s powerful gravity acts as a lens that bends and amplifies the light from the quasar behind it, producing four images of the distant object.

Gravitational Lensing at work, “Einstein’s Cross”: a single distant quasar is lensed into four distinct points of light by a nearer galaxy.

10 Most Fascinating Galaxies of our Universe

Two decades ago, astronomers spotted one of the brightest exploding stars in more than 400 years. Since that first sighting, the doomed star, called Supernova has continued to fascinate astronomers with its spectacular light show. The NASA/ESA Hubbl

Wispy nebula. A new photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope shows a nebula formed around a group of young, hot, stars. Designated N44C, the nebula is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby, small companion galaxy to the Milky Way. It’s peculiar because the star located at the centre of the nebula is inexplicably hot – it could be that the star has a black hole or neutron star companion.
