The Horsehead Nebula In New Light - Views from Hubble and Herschel Telescopes - This fly-through takes the observer on a journey into the famous constellation of Orion, to visit the iconic Horsehead Nebula and its fascinating environment. A new wide-field view from ESA’s Herschel space observatory complements the latest close-up view of the Horsehead by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

This object is a billowing tower of cold gas and dust rising from a stellar nursery called the Eagle Nebula. 7,000 light-years distant from us, the soaring tower is 9.5 light-years or about 90 trillion kilometers tall.  When Swiss astronomer Philippe Loys de Chéseaux discovered the Eagle Nebula in the mid-eighteenth century, he only described the cluster of stars surrounding it. Charles Messier independently rediscovered it in 1764 as part of his catalog, dubbing it M16.

Messier 15 is one of the oldest globular clusters in our skies. This is the best ever image of this cluster, which contains over 100 000 stars, a planetary nebula known as Pease 1 (otherwise named PN Ku 648 or Kürster 648), and something more exotic: at its core, it is thought to host a rare type of black hole. 				~spacetelescope.org

Hubble Telescope Captures Stunning Image Of Messier Dense Star Cluster In Milky Way

The Hubble Space Telescope has continuously unleashed a stream of jaw-dropping intergalactic imagery since it launched on April 24, 1990. Not only do these images, which look more like paintings at first glance, allow researchers to study distant worlds, galaxies and nebulae, they have captured the minds of the general public, getting us genuinely excited about space exploration. But here's some sad news: despite all of these wonderful things, Hubble is getting older.  In a few short year...
