A remote galaxy shining with the light of more than 300 trillion suns has been discovered using data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The galaxy is the most luminous galaxy found to date and belongs .
NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a passing galaxy (not pictured) during a near-collision approximately 100 million years ago.
Supermassive Black Hole Found Spinning Nearly at the Speed of Light
The Sombrero Galaxy - 28 million light years from Earth - was voted the most beautiful picture taken by Hubble Telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, are as spectacular as it’s appearance. It has 800 billion suns and is light years across.
Smiley face This photo taken of the galaxy cluster SDSS by the Hubble Space Telescope appears to show a smiling face at the center. The two eyes are bright galaxies and the smile lines are arcs caused by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing.
The eye at the center of this galaxy is actually a monstrous black hole surrounded by a ring of stars. The galaxy, called NGC 1097 and located 50 million light-years away, is spiral-shaped like our Milky Way, with long, spindly arms of stars.
NGC 2146 A galaxy being stretched out of shape has been imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Known as NGC it has been severely warped and deformed so that an immense dusty arm of glittering material now lies directly in front of the centre
