Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousands of young stars and developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. Massive stars light up the Orion nebula, the bright region near the center of the image.
Sombrero Galaxy is one of the largest in nearby Virgo cluster of galaxies. A dark band of dust obscures the mid-section in optical light but glows brightly in infra-red light; as recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope.
THE CORE OF OUR GALAXY, seen in infrared light by the Spitzer Space Telescope. Blue light is from stars, green light is from polycyclic carbon molecules, yellow and red light is from the thermal glow of warm dust. This image spans approximately 1000 light
This nebula, which is in the constellation of Scutum, has no common name since it is hidden behind dust clouds. It takes an infrared telescope like NASA's Spitzer to see through this dark veil and reveal this spectacular hidden nebula.
BIG image of Andromeda. This wide, detailed Spitzer Space Telescope view features infrared light from dust (red) and old stars (blue) in Andromeda, a massive spiral galaxy a mere million light-years away.
NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope floats million miles from earth as it silently observes our universe. In this image we see the nebula IC located in the constellation Auriga, about light-years away. Star formation is occurring rapidly in thi
Twelve Years of Spitzer Images This montage displays an image released from each year of operation of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
Colossal Mystery Object Observed at Milky Way Center --"A Failed Star or Unknown Planet?" 11/10/17 Astronomers have used the light-warping effects of gravity to spot a massive object OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb using NASA’s infrared Spitzer Space Telescope
