This Hubble Space Telescope view shows one of the most dynamic and intricately detailed star-forming regions in space, located light-years away in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way. (Image: NASA, ESA and A.
Extreme star cluster bursts into life - The star-forming region NGC 3603 - seen here in the latest Hubble Space Telescope image - contains one of the most impressive massive young star clusters in the Milky Way.
NGC 4874 is a giant elliptical galaxy about 10 times larger than the Milky Way, at the center of the Coma Galaxy Cluster. With its strong gravitational pull, it is able to hold onto more than globular clusters of stars, more than any other galaxy t

M 45 The well known Pleiades star cluster is slowly destroying part of a passing cloud of gas and dust. The Pleiades is the brightest open cluster of stars on Earth's sky and can be seen from almost any northerly location with the unaided eye.
This very deep image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the spiral galaxy NGC 4921 along with a spectacular backdrop of more distant galaxies. It was created from a total of 80 separate pictures through yellow and near-infrared filters.
