ESO's Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) has captured this unusual view of the Helix Nebula (NGC in this space wallpaper. The Helix Nebula is a planetary nebula located 700 light-years away.


Hubble Captures View of 'Mystic Mountain' the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.

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.

NGC 7822 in Cepheus via NASA

Emission nebula NGC 7822 located in the circumpolar northern constellation of Cepheus. This image was taken by Hubble so the coloring is the Hubble palette; which uses narrowband filtering and maps Hydrogen green, Oxygen blue and Sulfur red.


In the center of the Cat’s Eye there is a bright and hot star illuminating the surrounding nebula.

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.
