Infant stars are glowing gloriously in this image of the Serpens star-forming region, captured by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The reddish-pink dots are baby stars deeply embedded in the cosmic cloud of gas and dust that collapsed to create it.
For the first time ever, astronomers have detected circularly polarized light emitted from a dying star collapsing into a black hole. This image is an artist’s impression of the collapsing event, which is known as a gamma-ray burst.

NGC 1579 nebula lies about light-years away in the constellation of Perseus. The red glow of NGC 1579 comes from a young, massive star emitting red light embedded in the nebula, which contains dust that diminishes, reddens, and scatters the light.

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the center of globular cluster M The power of Hubble has resolved the cluster into a multitude of glowing orbs, each a colossal nuclear furnace. M 4 is relatively close to us,.
