Explore Milky Way, Scientists, and more!

For years, researchers believed these ancient galaxies were destroyed after colliding or merging with each other. Now scientists believe they have found remnants of lost galaxies behind discs of 'stolen' stars - and they say our own Milky Way may be hiding one too. Pictured is the centre of the Milky Way

Is there a HIDDEN galaxy in the Milky Way?

Scientists at the Swinburne University of Technology believe they have found remnants of lost galaxies behind discs of 'stolen' stars - and they say our own Milky Way may be hiding one too.

Celestial Emissions - Eta Carina Nebula

Celestial Emissions - Eta Carina Nebula by Glowing regions of gas in our galaxy are known as emission nebulae. Imaging these nebulae through filters that only allow the passage of very specific wavelengths of light produces this type of image.

The area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.

Soooo Wow !!! The Butterfly nebula,  NGC 6302, lies about 4,000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius.

NGC 7318 (also known as UGC 12099/UGC 12100 or HCG 92d/b) are a pair of colliding galaxies about 300 million light-years away in the Constellation Pegasus. They are members of the famous Stephan's Quintet.

For the first time, researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disc of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems, meaning that these findings will have major consequences for the hunt for exoplanets. (ESO)

Simeis 147 (Spaghetti Nebula) is a large SuperNova remnant in the constellations of Taurus & Auriga. It is the result of a SN explosion about years ago. It is 3000 light years away and about 140 light years across - Massive!

something incredible

The galaxy NGC 1097 is located 50 million light-years away. It is spiral-shaped like our Milky Way, with long, spindly arms of stars. The "eye" at the center of the galaxy is a large black hole surrounded by a ring of stars.

Australian astronomers find the oldest star, 13.6 billion years old, making it the most ancient star seen. It lies in our own galaxy, the Milky Way.

The Tadpole Galaxy (also known as UGC 10214 or Arp 188) is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located about 420 million light-years away toward the northern constellation Draco. Its most dramatic features are an incredibly long trail of stars and massive, bright blue star clusters, reflecting the essence of our dynamic, restless and violent Universe. - Credit: NASA, Hubble, Mehdi Bozzo-Rey
