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 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 Eridanus Void. This 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 matter once present in the region.
the butterfly nebula / NGC 6302 / lies about light-years away in the constellation scorpius.
NGC 7318 (also known as UGC 12100 or HCG 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.
Researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems.
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!
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: billion years old, making it the most ancient star seen. It lies in our own galaxy, the Milky Way, at a distance of around light years from Earth. story dated: 10 Feb 2014
