Colliding Galaxies Swirl in Dazzling New Photo

The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth. This composite image includes images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).


It just 'accidently' makes the symbol of infinity! perfect since in symbolism, the sun symbols Christ, the moon the Church. ~ mw ~ Fixed position photograph of the sun, taken at the same time of day over a year. Looks like the infinity symbol!

M16 - Combining almost opposite ends of the electromagnetic spectrum, this composite of the Herschel in far-infrared and XMM-Newton's X-ray images shows how the hot young stars detected by the X-ray observations are sculpting and interacting with the surrounding ultra-cool gas and dust, which, at only a few degrees above absolute zero, is the critical material for star formation itself.

Horse head nebula

The Horse Head Nebula-is a dark nebula in the constellation Orion. The nebula is located just to the south of the star Alnitak, which is farthest east on Orion's Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex.

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

Pillars of Creation - a photograph taken in 1995 by the Hubble Telescope of the Eagle Nebula, 7000 light years from earth. The pillars were destroyed about 6000 years ago. Their destruction will not be seen from earth for another 1000 years. Amazing...
