This image shows two companion galaxies. O balé de duas galáxias no espaço escuro.

This image shows two companion galaxies, NGC 4625 (top) and NGC 4618 (bottom), and their surrounding cocoons of cool hydrogen gas (purple). The huge set of spiral arms on NGC 4625 (blue) was discovered by the ultraviolet eyes of NASA's GALEX.

The constellation of Virgo (The Virgin) is the largest of the Zodiac constellations, and the second largest overall after Hydra (The Water Snake).

Hubble Sees a Stranger in the Crowd

Among a crowd of face- and edge-on spiral, elliptical, and irregular galaxies, lies NGC a lenticular galaxy situated about 80 million light-years from Earth.

Milky Way

Hubble Telescope Image: The Majestic Sombrero Galaxy - A brilliant white core is encircled by thick dust lanes in this spiral galaxy, seen edge-on. The galaxy is light-years across and 28 million light years from Earth.

California nebula

The Butterfly Nebula - NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae.

Meteor!

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has imaged a mysterious X-shaped debris pattern and trailing streamers of dust that suggest a head-on collision between two asteroids.

This image is one of six images taken by NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope, showing that tight-knit twin, or binary stars might be triggered to form by asymmetrical envelopes.

NGC also called the Bubble Nebula is a nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia.

NGC3256  in 360°

Galaxies don't normally look like NGC this current picture of which shows two galaxies that are slowly colliding. Quite possibly, in hundreds of millions of years, only one galaxy will remain.

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.

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.

Within nebula DEM L 106 is a second nebula, N30B. The peanut-shaped cocoon of dust, called a reflection nebula, surrounds a cluster of young, hot stars. The bright, supergiant star at the top of the picture illuminates the dusty cocoon. Wispy filaments from DEM L 106 fill the rest of the image.
