Extreme star cluster bursts into life - The star-forming region NGC 3603 - seen here in the latest Hubble Space Telescope image - contains one of the most impressive massive young star clusters in the Milky Way.

Clouds Of Perseus. “So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet, try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” Stephen Hawking

Clouds of Perseus ~ contains over solar masses of gas and dust, but the eye is drawn to red NGC Known as the California Nebula, its characteristic glow of atomic hydrogen gas is fueled by ultraviolet light from luminous blue star Xi Persei.

Australian astronomers find the oldest star, 13.6 billion years old, making it the most ancient star seen. It lies in our own galaxy, the Milky Way.

astronomyforamateurs:   Thor’s Helmet - NGC 2359 is an emission nebula that is in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light years away and 30 light years long. The central star is Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot red giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage.

Nice architecture.

Tulip Nebula - I'm pinning this for the picture. The article says we are made of star stuff. That sounds nice and poetic, but it doesn't give you any meaning, unfortunately. Star stuff doesn't care about you.

The Carina Nebula

dramatic dark dust knots and complex structures are sculpted by the high-velocity stellar winds and high-energy radiation from the ultra-luminous variable star called Eta Carinae.

The Witch's Broom Nebula is also part of the famous Veil Nebula complex, this being the western portion. The entire complex is the remnant of a powerful supernova explosion which occurred thousands of years ago, sending elements forged in the destroyed stars core into space. The bright star is 52 Cygni.

Lightning in space:  A single bolt of lightning is 50 percent longer than the entire Milky Way galaxy.Scientists have observed lightning on Mars and Saturn but didn't know that lightning could occur in the middle of space, with a force equal to a trillion lightning bolts, or to use the proper scientific terms, 50 million tons of electricity.  This insane electrical current was discovered near galaxy 3C303 firing a massive jet of electrified matter 150,000 light-years into outer space.

That electrical current was discovered near galaxy It's not doing anything that cool . it's just firing a massive jet of electrified matter light-years into outer space. RTh 6 Most Mind-Blowing Things Ever Discovered in Space Cracked.
