NCG 7714

NGC 7714 is a spiral galaxy 100 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy drifted too close to smaller neighbor NGC causing dramatic changes to both.

NGC 3199 (RCW 48) is a bright, 20’ crescent-shaped nebula in the southern constellation of Carina about 12,000 light years distant.  Deeper images, as presented above, show the bright crescent to be part of a larger elliptical bubble.

Resembling curling flames from a campfire, a magnificent nebula in a nearby galaxy observed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope provides new insight into the fierce birth of stars as it may have occurred in the early universe.

Flame Nebula (NGC 2024) - taken in infrared light, where a young star cluster becomes visible.

This image, the first to be released publicly from VISTA, the world’s largest survey telescope, shows the spectacular star-forming region known as the Flame Nebula, or NGC in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and its surroundings.

A Halo for NGC 6164  Image Credit & Copyright: Don Goldman    Explanation: Beautiful emission nebula NGC 6164 was created by a rare, hot, luminous O-type star, some 40 times as massive as the Sun. Seen at the center of the cosmic cloud, the star is a mere 3 to 4 million years old. In another three to four million years the massive star will end its life in a supernova explosion. Spanning around 4 light-years, the nebula itself has a bipolar symmetry.
