Hubble studies sequences of star formation in a neighboring galaxy (via star walk)

In this detailed view from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the so-called Cat's Eye Nebula looks like the penetrating eye of the disembodied sorcerer Sauron from the film adaptation of "Lord of the Rings."

The blue star in the center of the image is Zeta Ophiuchi, a titanic object "six times hotter, eight times wider, 20 times more massive, and about 80,000 times as bright" than our Sun. Located 370 light-years away from us, Zeta Ophiuchi is travelling across the Universe on its own, zooming through at 24 kilometers per second. That's an incredible 54,000mph. In the image, the star is going from the right side to the left... Read the rest of the article

This Awesome Destroyer of Worlds Is the Best Astronomy Image of the Year

"Massive Star Makes Waves".The giant star Zeta Ophiuchi, a young, large and hot star located around 370 light-years away, is having a 'shocking' effect on the surrounding dust clouds in this infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

100's of GREAT Hubble images! Open site, ALL Hubble. AWESOME!!! They're all here.

A colourful star-forming region is featured in this stunning new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image of NGC Looking like a roiling cauldron of some exotic cosmic brew, huge clouds of gas and dust are sprinkled with bright blue, hot young stars.

Symphony of colours in the The Tarantula..it is situated 170,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) in the Southern sky and is clearly visible to the naked eye as a large milky patch. Astronomers believe that this smallish irregular galaxy is currently going through a violent period in its life. It is orbiting around the Milky Way and has had several close encounters with it

Aurora | Mission Juno  Jupiter's auroras as seen by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory with a visible light image of the gas planet taken at about the same time by the Hubble Space Telescope

As the New Horizons spacecraft approached Jupiter en route to Pluto in February Chandra took exposures of the gas giant. The purpose of the Chandra observations is to study the powerful X-ray auroras observed near the poles of Jupiter.
