Nebulosa

Thor's Helmet: this object, also known as NGC lies in the constellation of Canis Major (The Great Dog). The helmet-shaped nebula is around 15 000 light-years away from Earth and is over 30 light-years across.

Wolf-Rayet Bubble Nebula | NOAO image of a Wolf-Rayet star and it's bubble.

A Wolf-Rayet Bubble Nebula surrounds a Wolf-Rayet star. There are different types of WR-nebula, based on their formation mechanism: regions nebulae bubbles hydrogen voids and shells (may be assoc. The nebula shown is a 'wind-blown bubbles' type

How Far Are You Along The Cosmic Journey?

Horsehead Nebula / of course if seen from a different viewpoint in space ,this gas cloud ( nebula ) would Obviously NOT look remotely like a horses head / it's all about 'perspective ' ⭐️

NGC 6357, the War and Peace Nebula

The War and Peace Nebula - I should probably start a separate science/nerdy board, but this is so stunning it counts as art

Swinging on A Star - NGC 7129 Is A Rosebud-shaped Reflection Nebula located 3300 ly away in the constellation Cepheus. A young open cluster is responsible for illuminating the surrounding nebula.

Nature of the universe

Featured Image: the cosmic ice sculptures of the Carina Nebula via Hubblesite. The visible space is big, complex and can be incredibly beautiful. This list of 9 pictures gathers the most beautiful images of our universe I could find.

An active supermassive black hole at the core of the Centaurus A galaxy blasts jets of radiation into space. MPIfR/ESO/APEX/A.Weiss et al. NASA/CXC/CfA/R.Kraft et al. (X-ray))

The sword on Orion. Interesting idea for nebula or universe tattoo. For similar photos... http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/entire/hires/true/

The Sword Of Orion ~ The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you look closely, you’ll notice a curved line of stars “hanging” from the three Belt stars.

The Eridanus Supervoid up close shows galaxy superclusters flat-lined across its massive walls. Some speculate that this is a universe-sized black hole

The Eagle Nebula (M16 or NGC 6611) is an open star cluster surrounded by the diffuse emission nebula and H II region IC 4703. This starburst region lies 6,500 light-years away in the Serpens constellation and is home of the famous “Pillars of Creation”.

I love the Eagle Nebula it's gorgeous! The Eagle Nebula, a grand old bird roughly light-years away. Image courtesy T. Rector & B.

♡ Ðяυѕιℓℓα ♡characteristic of dust grains reflecting starlight. Central filaments of the dusty clouds glow w/ a faint reddish photo-luminescence as some dust grains effectively convert the star's invisible ultraviolet radiation to visible light. The bright blue portion of the Iris is about 6 ly across

NGC the Iris Nebula. W/in the Iris, dusty nebular material sur-rounds a hot, young star. The dom-inant color of the brighter reflection nebula is blue, characteristic of dust grains reflecting starlight.

The #Andromeda Galaxy - It is 2 million light years away from us...so what we see now is how it appeared 2 million years ago. It will collide with our Milky Way in 2 billions years from now - the two galaxies are heading towards each other at a rate of 430 km/hr! A billion years from now Andromeda will loom as a spectacular site, eventually swelling to fill half of the night sky.
