40 Washington: Scientists have created the first high-resolution 3-D model of the expanding cloud produced by Eta Carinae's eruption in the 19th century. The model of the Homunculus Nebula reveals protrusions, trenches, holes and irregularities in
44 Sheffield (United Kingdom): New research by academics at the University of Sheffield has solved a long-standing mystery surrounding the evolution of galaxies, deepening our understanding of the future of the Milky Way.
The Trifid Nebula is a stellar nursery, where baby stars are born. In this infrared image, the green is cooler hydrogen gas, while the multitude of bright blue and cyan stars are hot, young stars between us and the distant nebula...The colours are
When a galaxy travels towards you, the light waves get squashed together and the light becomes bluer. When a galaxy travels away from you the light waves get stretched and the light becomes redder.'' The question then becomes: what was the colour of
Captured using using ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile spotted planetary nebula PN A66 33 was created when an aging star blew off its outer layers. The bubble is, by chance, aligned with a foreground star, and bears an uncanny resemblance to a
The moon has been moving east away from the sun, and a wafer-thin crescent moon can be seen above the western horizon in twilight tonight...The Pleiades, also known as M45, is a cluster of young stars that lie about 400 light-years from Earth. They
Awesome composite view from the Herschel Space Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope...A wispy and filamentary cloud of gas and dust, the Crab nebula is the remnant of a supernova explosion that was observed by Chinese astronomers in the year
Look no further than this miraculous photo of Messier 11, an ancient globular cluster located about 35,000 light-years away. The image was compiled from observations made by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 and Advanced Camera for Surveys in the
At 1,500-times wider than our sun, red supergiant W26 is the biggest known star in the Universe...Observing how it dies could help reveal how dying superstars supply the cosmos with ingredients necessary for planetary formation and possibly even life.
Astronomy Photo of the Day describe this dust pillar, at any rate, and I know better than to argue with a bunch of astronomers armed with a flair for figurative language. And this gorgeous gas is just one small part of the generally just ridiculously
