#NGC7714

NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a passing galaxy (not pictured) during a near-collision approximately 100 million years ago.

NGC 7714 is a spiral galaxy 100 million light-years from Earth.

Galaxy merger caught by Hubble telescope

NGC 7714 is a spiral galaxy 100 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy drifted too close to smaller neighbor NGC causing dramatic changes to both.

Researchers studying what appears to be a beefed-up version of our solar system have discovered that it is encased in a halo of fine dust. The findings are based on infrared data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory, in which NASA is a partner.

MIND THE GAP Giant planets orbit between two dusty belts around the young star HD seen in this artist’s illustration, providing a glimpse of what our solar system might have looked like billion years ago.

In the center of this image, taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, are two faint galaxies that seem to be smiling. In the case of this "happy face", the two eyes are the galaxies SDSSCGB 8842.3 and SDSSCGB 8842.4 - Image Credit: NASA and ESA -  Image enhancement: Jean-Baptiste Faure

Smiley face This photo taken of the galaxy cluster SDSS by the Hubble Space Telescope appears to show a smiling face at the center. The two eyes are bright galaxies and the smile lines are arcs caused by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing.

#GalaxyCentaurus - The Supermassive Black Hole in Galaxy Centaurus A "Centaurus A is the fifth brightest galaxy in the sky — making it an ideal target for amateur astronomers — and is famous for the dust lane across its middle and a giant jet blasting away from the supermassive black hole at its center (top image)." Centaurus A is an active galaxy about 12 million light years from Earth located in the constellation Centaurus.

<b>Cosmic eye candy.</b> This week marks the anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope way back in 1990. Thanks, Hubble, for providing us with "whoa" fodder for 22 years!

Supernova Shock Wave Paints Cosmic Portrait-- Remnants from a star that exploded thousands of years ago created a celestial abstract portrait, as captured in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image of the Pencil Nebula.

Fireworks displays are nothing compared to the cosmic explosions and implosions that occur every moment across our universe.

Who needs fireworks when you have the stars?
