Space image: Galactic maelstrom, spiral galaxy yellow, blue and pink colors This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows Messier 96, a spiral galaxy just over 35 million light-years away in the constellation of Leo (The Lion). Carefully enhanced picture looks like a realistic painting, the colors are more vivid and vibrant than in the original photo. Looks amazing as large print or poster.

Omega Nebula ~  Sculpted by stellar winds and radiation, the star factory also known as Messier 17 lies some 5,500 light-years away in the nebula-rich constellation Sagittarius.  The sharp, composite, color image shows faint details of the region's gas and dust clouds against a backdrop of central Milky Way stars. (Subaru Telescope (NAOJ), Hubble Space Telescope)

The galaxy resembles a giant maelstrom of glowing gas, rippled with dark dust that swirls inwards towards the nucleus.

Dust lanes seem to swirl around the core of Messier 96 in this colorful, detailed portrait of the beautiful island universe. Of course M96 is a spiral galaxy, and counting the faint arms extending beyond the brighter central region it spans 100 thousand light-years or so, about the size of our own Milky Way.

(September 27, 1995) This NASA Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image reveals a pair of one-half light-year long interstellar "twisters," eerie funnels and twisted-rope structures in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8) which lies 5,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. The central hot star, O Herschel 36 (lower right), is the primary source of the ionizing radiation for the brightest region in the nebula, called the Hourglass. Analogous to the…
