Keyhole Nebula - A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324), a name given to it by John Herschel in the 19th century. The Keyhole Nebula is actually a much smaller and darker cloud of cold molecules and dust, containing bright filaments of hot, fluorescing gas, silhouetted against the much brighter background nebula.

Hubble Views a Galaxy Fit to Burst This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the vibrant core of the galaxy NGC 3125. Discovered by John Herschel in 1835 NGC 3125 is a great example of a starburst galaxy a galaxy in which unusually high numbers of new stars are forming springing to life within intensely hot clouds of gas.

Study of an oak leaf by Sir John Herschel (1792-1871), 26th February, 1839, from his hypo fixing experiments. Apart from the examples of lace this negative photogenic drawing is Herschels only contact image of a real object, rather than an engraving or other form of illustration. The mark on the leaf seems to be a large J.

NGC 2207 & IC 2163 are a pair of colliding spiral galaxies about 80 mly away in Canis Major. Both galaxies were discovered by John Herschel in 1835. So far 4 supernovae have been observed in NGC 2207. The most recent encounter peaked 40 Ma. The smaller galaxy is swinging around counter-clockwise, & is now slightly behind the larger galaxy.

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows an elliptical galaxy called NGC 2865. It lies just over 100 million light-years away from us in the constellation of Hydra — The Sea Serpent — and was discovered in 1835 by astronomer John Herschel.

John Glenn turns 92 on Christmas Eve in 2013. He went into space again at the ripe old age of 77.

Rebel Galaxy: Most galaxies possess a majestic spiral or elliptical structure. About a quarter of galaxies, though, defy such conventional, rounded aesthetics, instead sporting a messy, indefinable shape. Known as irregular galaxies, this group includes NGC 5408, the galaxy that has been snapped here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
