This mosaic image of Andromeda spiral galaxy -- showing explosive stars in its interior and cooler, dusty stars forming in its many rings --  combines observations from the Herschel Space Observatory taken in infrared light  (the orange hues), and the XMM-Newton telescope captured in X-rays (the blues). Andromeda is our nearest large neighbor -- located about 2.5 million light-years away and holds nearly trillion stars. Our Milky Way galaxy contains about 200 - 400 billion stars.

Scientists discover planets which travel up to 30million miles per hour after coming into contact with black holes

Best Of European Space Agency Photos - Herchel's Image Of Andromeda Galaxy The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are

NGC 1365, also known as the Great Barred Spiral Galaxy, is about 56 million light-years away in the constellation Fornax. The NGC 1365 galaxy is 200,000 light-years across and about twice the size of the Milky Way, making it one of the largest galaxies known to astronomers.

“Barred spiral galaxy NGC 1365 is truly a majestic island universe some light-years across. Located a mere 60 million light-years aw.

ESO is a pair of merging galaxies located about 600 million light years away in the constellation Triangulum Australe 남쪽삼각형자리. Their contents have been dragged out in long tails by the interaction.

NGC 1333 is seen in visible light as a reflection nebula, dominated by bluish hues characteristic of starlight reflected by interstellar dust. A mere 1,000 light-years distant toward the heroic constellation Perseus, it lies at the edge of a large, star-forming molecular cloud. This striking close-up spans about two full moons on the sky or just over 15 light-years at the estimated distance of NGC 1333....NASA

Wow.. just wow.

weareallstarstuff: NGC 3576 is a minor nebula in the Sagittarius arm of the galaxy a few thousand light-years away from the Eta Carinae nebula.

Wizard Nebula (NGC 7380) - This open star cluster is still wrapped within its natal cloud of interstellar gas and dust known as the Wizard nebula. It is located about 8,000 light-years away, along the plane of our galaxy, towards the constellation Cepheus - Image : © Michael Miller

NGC 7380 open star cluster and its natal cloud, the Wizard Nebula, located about light-years away from Earth in the constellation Cepheus.

We forget running away and stop in our tracks to listen and hear the pull of our own voices like the Magi with their star, the wise ones with their camels, perfumes and gold, believing their inner songs, a journey in the bones of their feet, like migrating birds or salmon swimming ladders of stars to the beginning of life. — LINDA HOGAN, FROM “ME, CROW, FISH, AND THE MAGI,” IN SAVINGS

Gorgeous color in the Milky Way and good beta on the photo This LIFE is really Awesome and frightening to think about :P
