Clouds Of Perseus. “So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet, try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” Stephen Hawking

Clouds of Perseus ~ contains over solar masses of gas and dust, but the eye is drawn to red NGC Known as the California Nebula, its characteristic glow of atomic hydrogen gas is fueled by ultraviolet light from luminous blue star Xi Persei.

NGC 6537: the Red Spider Nebula is a planetary nebula in the constellation Sagittarius. The central white dwarf, the remaining compact core of the original star, produces a powerful and hot (≈10,000 K) wind blowing with a speed of 300 kilometers per second, which has generated waves 100 billion kilometres high. The star at the center of the Red Spider Nebula is surrounded by a dust shell. Surface temperature is probably 150,000-250,000 K. Distance estimated as 1900 light years. (Wikipedia)

Red Spider Planetary Nebula The Red Spider Planetary Nebula shows the complex structure that can result when a normal star ejects its outer gases and becomes a white dwarf star.

NGC 2276 and NGC 2300 are "boundary" targets in that they are the northernmost objects in the New General Catalog of space stuff. NGC 2276 is a beautiful spiral galaxy that is punctuated by pink star forming regions. In fact it has one of the highest rates of star formation that has been measured. Its neighbor, NGC 2300, appears as a regular elliptical galaxy that shows some evidence of shells (and perhaps former structure).

Most stars die spectacularly brilliant deaths. Thanks to projects such as NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, we’re able to see them as never before.

NGC a planetary nebula. The remnant star visible at the center of NGC 2371 is the super-hot core of the former red giant, now stripped of its outer layers. Its surface temperature is NGC 2371 is about 4300 ly away in the constellation Gemini

The Glowing Eye Credit: HST/NASA/ESA The glowing eye of NGC 6751 in the constellation Aquila, the nebula is a cloud of gas ejected several thousand years ago from the hot star visible in its center

Nice architecture.

Tulip Nebula - I'm pinning this for the picture. The article says we are made of star stuff. That sounds nice and poetic, but it doesn't give you any meaning, unfortunately. Star stuff doesn't care about you.

Friday, March 4, 2011: The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope produced this stunning image of the well-known Horsehead Nebula. It is part of an enormous cloud of molecular gas and dust obscuring background light from nearby emission nebula IC 434, producing the silhouette.--Tom Chao

Lightning in space:  A single bolt of lightning is 50 percent longer than the entire Milky Way galaxy.Scientists have observed lightning on Mars and Saturn but didn't know that lightning could occur in the middle of space, with a force equal to a trillion lightning bolts, or to use the proper scientific terms, 50 million tons of electricity.  This insane electrical current was discovered near galaxy 3C303 firing a massive jet of electrified matter 150,000 light-years into outer space.

That electrical current was discovered near galaxy It's not doing anything that cool . it's just firing a massive jet of electrified matter light-years into outer space. RTh 6 Most Mind-Blowing Things Ever Discovered in Space Cracked.

Bubble nebula, NGC7635.

Who doesn't love a good nebula? This is NGC 7635 or the "Bubble Nebula" in the constellation Cassiopeia.

We are all galactic being sharing the same universal ♥
