clouds of interstellar gas and dust — the raw material for new star formation. The nebula, located light-years away in the constellation Carina, contains a central cluster of huge, hot stars, called NGC 3603
Hubble snaps NGC 5189 The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope celebrates the holiday season with a striking image of the planetary nebula NGC The intricate structure of the stellar eruption looks like a giant and brightly coloured ribbon in space.
The spiral galaxy NGC 3627 is located about 30 million light years from Earth. The inset shows the central region, which contains a bright X-ray source that is likely powered by material falling onto a supermassive black hole.
NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a by a passing galaxy, not seen in this Hubble Space Telescope photo. That's because the near-collision between the galaxies ha
NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a supermassive black hole.
