NGC 3324 - ESA/NASA/STScI/AURA

1998. What may first appear as a sunny side up egg is actually NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's face-on snapshot of the small spiral galaxy NGC 7742. But NGC 7742 is not a run-of-the-mill spiral galaxy. In fact, this spiral is known to be a Seyfert 2 active galaxy, a type of galaxy that is probably powered by a black hole residing in its core.

Star Cluster NGC 2074 in the Large Magellanic Cloud.  I always wondered what NASA was hiding when they blacked out those three squares.

Hubble at 25: the best images from the space telescope - in pictures  This view of the Carina Nebula shows star birth in a new level of detail. The fantastical landscape of the nebula is shaped by the action of outflowing winds and ultraviolet radiation from the massive stars that inhabit this inferno. These stars are shredding last vestiges of the giant cloud from which they were born.

Open Star Clusters M35 and NGC 2158 -- "...near the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, they contain from 100 to 10,000 stars, all of which formed at nearly the same time. M35, on the upper left, is relatively nearby, relatively young at 150 million years old, and relatively diffuse, with about 2500 stars spread out over a volume 30 light years... NGC 2158, is at the lower right... is... over 10 times older, and much more compact with many more stars in roughly the same volume of space."

"Fiery Young Stars Wreak Havoc in Stellar Nursery" - The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has imaged a violent stellar nursery called NGC 2174, in which stars are born in a first-come-first-served feeding frenzy for survival.
