Magnificent spiral galaxy NGC 4565 is viewed edge-on from planet

April 12, 2017:  Leo Trio   Image Credit & Copyright: Ignacio Diaz Bobillo  Explanation: This group is popular in the northern spring. Famous as the Leo Triplet, the three magnificent galaxies gather in one field of view. Crowd pleasers when imaged with even modest telescopes, they can be introduced individually as NGC 3628 (left), M66 (bottom right), and M65 (top).  MORE...

Dim and Diffuse Galaxy NGC 4242 - Hubble  Tucked away in the small northern constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs) is the galaxy NGC 4242, shown here as seen by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The galaxy lies some 30 million light-years from us. At this distance from Earth, actually not all that far on a cosmic scale, NGC 4242 is visible to anyone armed with even a basic telescope (as British astronomer William Herschel found when he discovered the galaxy in 1788).  This…

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope view of magnitude +11.7 open cluster NGC 299 shows a field of view of 2.04 x 1.51 arcminutes. The cluster lies 200,000 light-years away within the Small Magellanic Cloud in the constellation of Tucana (The Toucan), α=00h 53.4m, δ=-72° 12' (J2000.0). Click the picture for a full-size version.

3,000 light-years away toward the royal constellation Cepheus, young suns still lie within dusty NGC 7129. Lovely bluish dust clouds that reflect the youthful starlight while compact, deep red crescent shapes are characteristic of glowing hydrogen gas shocked by jets streaming away from newborn stars. This composite image has revealed the faint red strands of emission at the upper right, likely supernova remnant and currently being analyzed by Bo Reipurth (Univ. Hawaii). (Subaru telescope)

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day 2016 August 29 Young Suns of NGC 7129 Young suns still lie within dusty NGC some light-years away toward the royal constellation Cepheus. While these stars are at a relatively tender age, only a few.

Taken at Mount Lemmon, this nebula is named 'Thor's Helmet'.
