A spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality. The Advanced Camera for.

The Nearest Stars to Earth

The nearest stars, their distances in light-years, spectral types and known planets. Only 9 of the stars within 15 light years can be seen with the unaided eye from Earth.

For reasons unknown, star V838 Mon's outer surface suddenly greatly expanded with the result that it became the brightest star in the entire Milky Way Galaxy in January 2002. Then, just as suddenly, it faded. A stellar flash like this has never been seen before. It's true that supernovae and novae expel matter out into space. But while the V838 Mon flash appears to expel material into space, what is seen here is actually an outwardly moving light echo of the bright flash.

On April the NASA Hubble Space Telescope will celebrate it’s anniversary. During these 22 years of service the HST has given humankind a better insight in to how planet earth came to be and provided us with some amazing picture of space.

Is this what heaven looks like? Hubble telescope captures dying star emitting four mysterious and ethereal beams of light

This NASA image shows bright stars, shining through what looks like a haze in the night sky, part of a young stellar grouping in one of the largest known star formation regions of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.
