The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth. This composite image includes images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).
clouds of interstellar gas and dust — the raw material for new star formation. The nebula, located light-years away in the constellation Carina, contains a central cluster of huge, hot stars, called NGC 3603
Hubble Watches Star Clusters on a Collision Course. Astronomers using data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have caught two clusters full of massive stars that may be in the early stages of merging. The 30 Doradus Nebula is light-years from Earth.
A colourful star-forming region is featured in this stunning new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image of NGC Looking like a roiling cauldron of some exotic cosmic brew, huge clouds of gas and dust are sprinkled with bright blue, hot young stars.
NASAs Hubble Space Telescope reveals a majestic disk of stars and dust lanes in this view of the spiral galaxy NGC which lies 46 million light-years away in the constellation of Ursa Major (The Great Bear).
Hubble Serves Up a Holiday Snow Angel The bipolar star-forming region, called Sharpless looks like a soaring, celestial snow angel. The bipolar star-forming region, called Sharpless looks like a soaring, celestial snow angel.
