New record broken! 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 to a new class of objects recently discovered by WISE -- extremely luminous infrared galaxies, or ELIRGs.

The galaxy belongs to a recently discovered new class of objects called extremely luminous infrared galaxies.

Image of the Day: An Awesome Galaxy (and Its Odd Companion )--Twice the Size of the Milky Way  This spectacular image of the large spiral galaxy NGC 1232 is based on three exposures in ultra-violet, blue and red light, respectively. The colours of the different regions are well visible : the central areas contain older stars of reddish colour, while the spiral arms are populated by young, blue stars and many star-forming regions.

The nearest stars, their distances in light-years, spectral types and known planets. Only 9 of the stars within 15 light years can be seen with the unaided eye from Earth.

NASA announced today that it has discovered the first "circumbinary planet"--a planet orbiting two stars. While the planet's officially called Kepler 16b, astronomers are already referring to it as Tatooine, after the home planet of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies, which also had two suns.

NASA's Kepler mission has discovered a world where two suns set over the horizon instead of just one. The planet, called is not thought to be habitable. It is a cold world, with a gaseous surface, and it circles two stars, just like "Star Wars" Tatooine.

This is a very tiny comet. In fact this is Rosetta's Comet and we recently landed a probe on it as it flew through space. This is what Rosetta's Comet looks like when compared to the city of Los Angeles, California.
