Image of the star Monocerotis reveals dramatic changes in the illumination of surrounding dusty cloud structures. The effect, called a light echo, has been unveiling never-before-seen dust patterns ever since the star suddenly brightened for.

Green is one of the rarest colors found in space. It's produced by a unique form of ionized oxygen gas.

New Hubble Telescope image of Horsehead Nebula in infrared.

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
