The Horse Head Nebula is a cloud of ionized- hydrogen in the constellation Orion. The clouds are lit from within by young hot stars. The interstellar dust absobs the light from part of ionized cloud creating this beautiful contrast
Hubble Sees a Star 'Inflating' a Giant Bubble ~ Just in time for the anniversary of Hubble's launch on April the telescope has photographed an enormous, balloon-like bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star.
Wednesday, March A helical reflection nebula surrounds young star Cyg, which lies in the dark cloud LDN 981 (Lynds Usually, dust from the circumstellar disc and the envelope surrounding it obscures our view of a young star. In the cas
Star Cluster NGC 2074 in the Large Magellanic Cloud Hubble peered into a small portion of the nebula near the star cluster NGC 2074 (top). The region is a firestorm of raw stellar creation, perhaps triggered by a nearby supernova explosion. It lies.
The Eagle Has Risen: Stellar Spire in the Eagle Nebula. A billowing tower of gas and dust rises from the stellar nursery known as the Eagle Nebula. This small piece of the Eagle Nebula is 57 trillion miles long trillion km).
The top view, taken by NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, is the first visible-light image of a dust ring around the nearby, bright young star Fomalhaut (HD The image offers the strongest evidence yet that an unruly planet may be tugging on the dusty belt.
