Thackary's Globules. Located  in rich star fields & hydrogen gas, these opaque clouds of interstellar dust & gas are so large they might be able to form stars. They are located in IC 2944, a bright stellar nursery about 5900 ly away toward the constellation Centaurus. The largest of these dark globules, first spotted by S African astronomer A. D. Thackeray in 1950, is likely two separate but overlapping clouds.

This might be just a simulation of two merging black holes, but it's still insane to look at.

Snake Nebula (aka Barnard 72) is a dark nebula in the Ophiuchus constellation. It is a small but readily apparent S-shaped dust lane that snakes our in front of the Milky Way star clouds from the north-north-west edge of the bowl of the Pipe Nebula. To the right side of the Snake Nebula is found Barnard 68. Below it are found Barnard 69, Barnard 70, and Barnard 74. Wikipedia

Hebes Chasma, esa.int: This martian abyss, more than 4 times as wide and deep as the Grand Canyon,  is an enclosed, almost 8 km-deep trough stretching 315 km in an east–west direction and 125 km from north to south at its widest point. It sits about 300 km north of the vast Valles Marineris canyon. Credits: ESA/DLR/FU Berlin (G. Neukum). Thanks to @Ben Silbermann ! #Space #Mars

Milky Way, We are nothing more than dust in the cosmos, And I don't care what you think about it!

The Eridanus Void. This area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.
