Stephan's Quintet, a compact group of galaxies discovered about 130 years ago and located about 280 million light years from Earth, provides a rare opportunity to observe a galaxy group in the process of evolving from an X-ray faint system dominated by spiral galaxies to a more developed system dominated by elliptical galaxies and bright X-ray emission.

Visualizing The Size And Scale Of Our World

When I was a kid, they already have their name and now I must call them by their true name. But I find my names interesting.

This Vector Graphics Toolkit is a Must-Have for Every Designer

the use of dotted lines in this design is interesting but distracts from the focus points of the stars.

The sword on Orion. Interesting idea for nebula or universe tattoo. For similar photos... http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/entire/hires/true/

The Sword Of Orion ~ The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you look closely, you’ll notice a curved line of stars “hanging” from the three Belt stars.

30 Doradus in Ultraviolet, Visible, and Red Light ~  (also known as the Tarantula Nebula or NGC 2070) Originally thought to be a star, but in 1751 Nicolas Louis de Lacaille recognized it as a nebula. Its luminosity is so great that if it were as close to Earth as the Orion Nebula, it would cast shadows. It is the most active starburst region in the Local Group of galaxies. The closest supernova observed since the invention of the telescope, Supernova 1987A, occurred in the outskirts of NGC…

Seeing stars./Just like the stars in space we are in Heaven as the same .

Beyond the Milky Way, there could be as many as 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Here are some of the most fascinating, categorized according to their general type.

How the large hadron collider works: science. How God works: in mysterious ways.

The “Black Eye” galaxy, so named because an ancient cosmic smashup produced a dark ring and a roiling, conflicted interior.

The Black Eye Galaxy (Messier is a spiral galaxy with an apparent magnitude of lying approximately 24 million light years from Earth. It is sometimes also called the Sleeping Beauty Galaxy or Evil Eye Galaxy.

The Black Eye Galaxy (also known as Galaxy Sleeping Beauty Spiral Galaxy M64, M64 or NGC 4826) was discovered by Edward Pigott in March 1779, and cataloged by Charles Messier in 1780. This galaxy is known by amateur astronomers because it is visible with small telescopes. It is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenice. It is at a distance of 17 million (5.2 Megaparsecs) light years. It has a band of dark dust around its bright nucleus, giving it the name black eye galaxy, or the…

Christopher Poindexter quotes by inshaal, Her eyes carried a certain kind of silence that begged to be understood and i felt as i was a scientist, staring with eager, fervent eyes into galaxies that have not yet had the chance to be named.

Via Hubble: The cosmic "ice sculptures" of the Carina Nebula. Scientists are still trying to explain the beautiful spires.A nebula from Latin: "cloud"is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases.

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. The above image, digitally sharpened, shows the infrared glow, recently recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope
