Birth of a star! This image of Herbig-Haro object HH combines radio observations acquired with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) with much shorter wavelength visible light observations from ESO’s New Technology Telescope (NTT).

Hubble Ultra-Deep Field image (full range of ultraviolet to near-infrared light) includes some of the most distant galaxies to have been imaged by an optical telescope, existing shortly after the Big Bang. (I think that this is one of the most fascinating images ever taken - Bruce).

Shell galaxy NGC 474's beautiful and unique structure is not well understood but is probably the result of tidal stripping from galactic collisions over hundreds of millions of years. #astronomy

Arp 227 consists of two galaxies in the constellation Pisces: the large lenticular galaxy ly across) NGC 474 about 93 mly away; and the spiral galaxy NGC 470 about 95 mly away. They lie at a separation of about ly.

This stunning false-colour picture shows off the many sides of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A. Located light-years away, Cassiopeia A is the remnant of a once massive star that died in a violent supernova explosion 325 years ago.

Central filaments of the dusty clouds glow w/ a faint reddish photo-luminescence as some dust grains effectively convert the star's invisible ultraviolet radiation to visible light.

For the first time ever, astronomers have detected circularly polarized light emitted from a dying star collapsing into a black hole. Above is an artist's impression of the collapsing event, which is known as a gamma-ray burst.

Carina Nebula This furthers my theory that although space appears to be a silent, slow, area there is really much more going on out there. I see a beautiful, flying beastie of beauty.

The Arches Cluster is the densest known star cluster in the Milky Way, and is located about 100 light years distant, in the constellation Sagittarius. So beautiful. How can people not know heaven is a real, physical place?

The area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.
