In a galaxy far, far away - Spiral Galaxy NGC 4622 from Hubble Telescope

Cone Nebula (NGC 2264) -  Star-Forming Pillar of Gas and Dust

Radiation from hot stars off the top of the picture illuminates and erodes this giant, gaseous pillar. Additional ultraviolet radiation causes the gas to glow, giving the pillar its red halo of light.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered what astronomers are reporting as the dimmest stars ever seen in any globular star cluster. Globular clusters are spherical concentrations of hundreds-of-thousands of stars. These clusters formed early in the 13.7-billion-year-old universe. The cluster NGC 6397 is one of the closest globular star clusters to Earth. Seeing the whole range of stars in this area will yield insights into the age, origin, and evolution of the cluster.

Nebula NGC 3582 contains giant loops of gas that resemble solar prominences. Researchers think dying stars ejected the loops, but this stellar nursery also produces new stars.  Credit: ESO, Digitized Sky Survey 2 and Joe DePasquale

This picture of the star formation region NGC 3582 was taken with the Wide Field Imager at the European Space Observatory’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. The image reveals giant loops of gas ejected by dying stars.

COLLIDING GALAXIES The Hubble Space Telescope  captured this image of The Mice, two galaxies in the process of  merging. Each galaxy probably has a supermassive black hole  at its center, and eventually the two black holes will sink to the  center of the merged galaxy and collide.

Impending collision of galaxies threatens mass extinctions in four billion years (so not before the solar eclipse)
