This is the Carina Nebula, an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. It lies within our own Milky Way galaxy, about 6,500-10,000 light-years from Earth.

The Milky Way - 84 Million Stars in 9 Billion Pixels via petapixel: The image is a composite of thousands of photos shot by the VISTA survey camera by Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in Chile. if you were to print out this image as a standard book photograph, it would be nearly 30-feet wide and 23-feet. Here is the link to the zoomable image. http://www.eso.org/public/images/eso1242a/zoomable/  #Astronomy #Milky_Way  #hahahaha8888

This global view of Jupiter's moon, Io, was obtained during the tenth orbit of Jupiter by NASA's Galileo spacecraft on 19 September 1997 at a range of more than 500,000 km (310,000 miles). Io (which is slightly larger than Earth's moon) is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Colors are enhanced. Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona

Ring of fire: Known as a 'prominence eruption', this is a loop of gas heated to an extremely high temperature. Twisted magnetic fields on the Sun's surface cause the gas to be shaped like this. This image was captured by the satellite on March 30
