#HelixNebula | ESO's Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) has captured this unusual view of the Helix Nebula (NGC 7293), a planetary nebula located 700 light-years away. The coloured picture was created from images taken through Y, J and K infrared filters. While bringing to light a rich background of stars and galaxies, the telescope's infrared vision also reveals strands of cold nebular gas that are mostly obscured in visible images of the Helix.

NASA?s CIBER experiment seeks clues to the formation of the first stars and galaxies. CIBER will blast off on June 4 from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia. It will study the total sky brightness, to probe the component from first stars and galaxies using spectral signatures, and searches for the distinctive spatial pattern seen in this image, produced by large-scale structures from dark matter.

Absolutely gorgeous super long astronomy telescope photography of stars and galaxies in the Cosmos. RESEARCH #DdO:) - https://www.pinterest.com/DianaDeeOsborne/universe-lights/ - UNIVERSE LIGHTS. If our sun were size of a penny, the NEARest star, Alpha Centauri, would be 350 miles away. At this scale, the Milky Way galaxy would be 7.5 million miles across, or more than 30 times the distance between Earth & the moon. #Size.

A Menagerie of Galaxies. Located 4 billion light-years away in the constellation Cetus, galaxy cluster Abell 370 contains an astounding assortment of several hundred galaxies tied together by the mutual pull of gravity. The brightest and largest galaxies in the cluster are the yellow-white, massive, elliptical galaxies containing many hundreds of billions of stars each. Spiral galaxies—like our Milky Way—have younger populations of stars and are bluish. Entangled among the galaxies are…

Click to expand [Credit: ESA]  The European Space Agency has released a beautiful graphic summarising the  almost 14 billion year history of the Universe, showing in particular the  events that contributed to the Cosmic Microwave Background, or CMB.  The timeline in the upper part of the illustration shows an artistic view  of the evolution of the cosmos on large scales.      The processes depicted range from inflation, the brief era of     accelerated expansion that the Universe underwent…
