Phoenix Nebula

Phoenix Nebula - The universe is such an amazing, interesting, and beautiful thing.

Magnificent!

The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared One of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infrared light

Hubble image of UGC 10214 galaxy in the constellation of the Dragon.

Incredible Hubble image of UGC 10214 galaxy in the constellation of the Dragon. This is so spectacular, it doesn't even look real!

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

A spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality. The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) on the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a dramatic view of gas and dust sculpted by intense radiation from hot young stars deep in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8).

NGC 6537: the Red Spider Nebula is a planetary nebula in the constellation Sagittarius. The central white dwarf, the remaining compact core of the original star, produces a powerful and hot (≈10,000 K) wind blowing with a speed of 300 kilometers per second, which has generated waves 100 billion kilometres high. The star at the center of the Red Spider Nebula is surrounded by a dust shell. Surface temperature is probably 150,000-250,000 K. Distance estimated as 1900 light years. (Wikipedia)

Red Spider Planetary Nebula The Red Spider Planetary Nebula shows the complex structure that can result when a normal star ejects its outer gases and becomes a white dwarf star.

At the centre of every large galaxy lives a giant black hole that swallows gas or dust clouds that stray too close. As matter spirals inwards, it is compressed into an accretion disk. By the time it falls into the black hole, the matter is so hot that much of its mass is converted to energy, which emerges as heat, light and jets of high-energy particles. http://www.nature.com/polopoly_fs/7.14928.1389717382!/image/Quasar.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_630/Quasar.jpg
