In this image by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, an unusual, ghostly green blob of gas appears to float near a normal-looking spiral galaxy. The bizarre object, dubbed Hanny's Voorwerp (Hanny's Object in Dutch), is the only visible part of a

M31, also known as the Andromeda galaxy, is one of the closest galaxies to our own at “only” 2.5 million light-years away.

Andromeda is our nearest neighboring galaxy at million light years away. One single light year is roughly 6 trillion miles. Feeling small yet?

Oh look, it's a wittle baby galaxy. This may be the youngest galaxy ever seen; an irregular dwarf galaxy about 45 million light-years away is seen in this image from NASA. NASA/ESA/A.

This is the 'Cosmic Bird' galaxy, aka galaxy ESO 593-IG 008. It bucks the trend of the more common spiral shaped galaxies, instead appearing as a bird shaped wonder. There is a catch though. What we are seeing is the result of 3 different galaxies crossing paths to form a super galaxy.

A stunning rare case of a triple merger of galaxies. This system, which astronomers have dubbed 'The Bird' - albeit it also bears resemblance with a cosmic Tinker Bell - is composed of two massive spiral galaxies and a third irregular galaxy.

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.

colliding galaxies...maybe they are really just boogieing with each other!  I'd love to hear that galactic rock music!

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

This image of the core of the nearby spiral galaxy M51 was taken with the Wide Field Planetary camera (in PC mode) on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The cross in the center was first interpreted as two dust rings circling the nucleus. It was later determined to simply be foreground dust lanes silhouetted by the active nucleus. Bright ionization cones can be seen extending perpendicular to the largest dust feature.

Indescribable

The nucleus of the Whirlpool Galaxy The Cross marks the location of the black hole at the center of the galaxy. The Cross is formed by two dust rings. Bright ionization cones can be seen extending perpindicular to the largest dust ring.
