NGC 6240 A giant gas cloud spanning 300,000 light years with a mass of 10 billion Suns inside the galaxy merger system NGC 6240. This collision involves two spiral galaxies about the size of the Milky Way, each containing a supermassive black hole in the center, which are on their way to form an even more massive black hole.

The two coolest guys in Hawaii Five-O :)

This is a comparison of the original Hawaii Five-O starring Jack Lord as McGarret and the new series starring Alex O'Loughlin, "Book 'em, Danno" and the unforgettable theme song.

NGC 4725 is a member of the Coma-Sculptor galaxy cluster and lies 12.6 Mpc away from Earth (Gibson et al. 2009, ApJ, 512, 48). This galactic gem is believed to be tidally interacting with the neighbour galaxy NGC 4747 (outside the pictured field), as a neutral hydrogen plume pointing towards NGC 4725 suggests. In the optical,NGC 4725 is dominated by a single spiral arm that seems to originate from an inner ring rich in newborn stars and conspicuous HII regions (in red in the image).

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.

(Bode’s & Messier 82 (Cigar are respectively spiral & starburst galaxies about 12 mly away in Ursa Major.This couple is seen through the faint glow of an Integrated Flux Nebulae (or IFN).

For the first time, researchers are seeing how white dwarf systems evolve directly confirmed in the night sky using NASA's Kepler space telescope. The star, white dwarf WD 1145+017, is currently destroying and disintegrating an orbiting planet bit by bit. Scientists are watching the death of a solar system. This particular white dwarf star is about 570 light-years from Earth in the constellation Virgo. (Oct 22, 2015; Journal of Science)
