Cúmulo Trumpler 16. Es un cúmulo abierto en la Nebulosa Carina, una inmensa caldera de gas y polvo en la constelación de Carina, la Quilla. WR 25 y Tr16-244, un par de estrellas colosales ubicadas dentro del cúmulo. WR 25 es la más brillante; Tr16-244 vecina es la tercera más brillante, encima a la izquierda de WR 25. La segunda más brillante, a la izquierda de WR 25, es una estrella de baja masa situada mucho más cerca de la Tierra que la nebulosa de Carina.

Horsehead Nebula. I remember staring at this picture as a child, thinking of all…

Orion Horse head Nebula // Not necessarily a place we can go, but God sure does make beautiful things.

This 10.5-billion-year-old globular cluster is home to heavy-metal stars of a celestial kind! The stars comprising this spectacular spherical cluster, known as NGC 6496, are enriched with much higher proportions of metals — elements heavier than hydrogen and helium are curiously known as metals in astronomy — than stars found in similar clusters.

Millions of Stars in Omega Centauri Featured in this sharp telescopic image, globular star cluster Omega Centauri (NGC is some light-years away. Some 150 light-years in diameter, the cluster is packed with about 10 million stars much older than the Sun.

Dusty Galaxy Centaurus A. Evidence indicates that Cen A is likely the result of the collision of two normal galaxies. Cen A lies only 13 million light years away, making it the closest active galaxy.
