The Milky Way - 84 Million Stars in 9 Billion Pixels via petapixel: The image is a composite of thousands of photos shot by the VISTA survey camera by Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.

Behold an expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0, left behind after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud: “Multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays from Chandra, in blue. The outer edge of the explosion (red) and stars in the field of view are seen in visible light from the Hubble Space Telescope.”(NASA/Chandra X-Ray Observatory)  Source: Humanoid History

Infrared view of the Pillars of Creation.   Unlike in the visible-light view, this view shows newly born stars, forming from the gas and dust in this region of space.  No wonder Sheldon is an astrophysicist on Big Bang Theory this is amazing stuff!

Goes High Def to Revisit the Iconic 'Pillars of Creation' This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, taken in near-infrared light, transforms the pillars into eerie, wispy silhouettes, which are seen against a background of myriad stars.

Supernova SN1987A (exploded February 23, 1987). NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has found evidence that the star exploded in a lopsided fashion, sending ejected material flying in one direction and the core of the star in the other. The findings offer the best proof yet that star explosions of this type, called Type II or core-collapse supernova, are inherently asymmetrical, a phenomenon that had been difficult to prove before now.

Supernova SN one of the brightest stellar explosions visible, belongs to the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy about 168 000 light-years away.

Located some 1300 light-years away in the constellation of Carina (The Keel of the ship Argo). It is informally known as the Wishing Well Cluster, as it resembles scattered silver coins which have been dropped into a well, It was the first target to be observed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope. (May 1990) The stars that with moderate masses are still shining brightly with blue-white colors, but the more massive ones have already exhausted their supplies of hydrogen becoming red giant stars.

Located some 1300 light-years away in the constellation of Carina (The Keel of the ship Argo) or known as the Wishing Well Cluster, first target to be observed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope.

Cassiopeia a Spitzer

Supernovae are some of the brightest objects in the sky, outshining entire galaxies with the fleeting light they produce. The huge explosions then spread gas and material over a wide area (remnants of a supernova around Cassiopeia is pictured above)

This mosaic image of Andromeda spiral galaxy -- showing explosive stars in its interior and cooler, dusty stars forming in its many rings --  combines observations from the Herschel Space Observatory taken in infrared light  (the orange hues), and the XMM-Newton telescope captured in X-rays (the blues). Andromeda is our nearest large neighbor -- located about 2.5 million light-years away and holds nearly trillion stars. Our Milky Way galaxy contains about 200 - 400 billion stars.
