Nebulosa vdb 20. Es una nebulosa de reflexión dentro del cúmulo abierto de las Pléyades en la constelación de Tauro. Es la nebulosa que rodea a la estrella Electra, uno de los miembros más brillantes del cúmulo de las Pléyades. La nube recibe directamente la radiación ultravioleta de Electra, profundamente inmersa en ella, con azul característico de las nubes de las Pléyades debido al color de sus estrellas esclarecedoras. La parte iluminada de los gases tiene una forma aproximadamente…

The Hubble 12 Nebula (PN Hb 12) is a bipolar nebulae in the Cassiopeia constellation. The shape of this nebula, like a butterfly or an hourglass, was formed as a Sun-like star approached the end of its life. Photo : NASA HST, ESA, A. Zijlstra (The University of Manchester), and J.

This image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows an example of a bipolar planetary nebula. This object, which is known as Hubble 12 and also catalogued as PN lies in the constellation of Cassiopeia.

What is the Oort Cloud? The Oort Cloud is an extended shell of icy objects that exist in the outermost reaches of the solar system. It is named after astronomer Jan Oort, who first theorized its existence. The Oort Cloud is roughly spherical, and is the origin of most of the long-period comets that have …

Stars are forming in dark, dusty molecular cloud LDN 988. From dark sky sites this region can be identified by eye alone. It's part of the Great Rift of dark nebulae along the plane of the Milky Way galaxy known as the Northern Coalsack. Only about 2,000 light-years away, narrowband and near-infrared explorations of the dark nebula have revealed energetic shocks and outflows light-years across associated with dozens of newborn stars.

The Soul Nebula (IC 1848) IC 1848 is rather a large emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is often referred to as the “Embryo Nebula” because of its characteristic shape. Because of its neighbor to the SE, IC 1805(Heart Nebula), reference to them both is The Heart & Soul. Credit: Azin Dark Skies

Final SpaceX rocket launch of 2017 lights up Southern California sky - The launch happened around 5:30 p.m. in Southern California at Vandenberg Air Force Base. This mission sends 10 satellites into orbit, using another used Falcon 9 rocket for the flight.  SpaceX says this is the fourth flight for long-time customer Iridium. Both companies are under contract to launch a total of 75 satellites to provide communications services for regions all over the world. #elonmusk

NGC 3718 (Arp 214),Warped Spiral Galaxy Distance: 42.4 Million Light Years

astrotastic: “afro-dominicano: “ Twists of NGC 3718 by Mark Hanson “ A careful look at this colorful cosmic snapshot reveals a surprising number of galaxies both near and far toward the constellation.

The Seyfert galaxy NGC 1097, in the constellation of Fornax (The Furnace), is seen in this image taken by ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT). A tiny elliptical companion galaxy, NGC 1097A, is also visible at the top left.  NGC 1097, the larger galaxy, also has four faint jets — too faint to be seen in this image — that emerge from its center, forming an X-shaped pattern, and are the longest visible-wavelength jets of any known galaxy.
