Oh, such a beautiful purple and blue nebulae. I need to be careful that we don't go too 'deep space'. It's more sky and stars. But still, this is nice.

Most bright stars in our Milky Way Galaxy reside in a disk. Since our Sun also resides in this disk, these stars appear to us as a diffuse band that circles the sky.

NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a by a passing galaxy, not seen in this Hubble Space Telescope photo. That's because the near-collision between the galaxies happened at least 100 million years ago.

The moon passed between Nasa's Deep Space Climate Observatory and the Earth, allowing the satellite to capture this rare image of the moon's far side in full sunlight. We normally don't see this side of the moon. As the moon is tidally locked to the earth and doesn't rotate, we only ever see the one face from the earth. Awesome shot!
