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.

These are larger dust bunnies than you will find under your bed. Situated in rich star fields and glowing hydrogen gas, these opaque clouds of interstellar dust and gas are so large they might be able to form stars. Their home is known as IC a bright

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

The Black Eye Galaxy (Messier is a spiral galaxy with an apparent magnitude of lying approximately 24 million light years from Earth. It is sometimes also called the Sleeping Beauty Galaxy or Evil Eye Galaxy.

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

A Transcendentalist place to go is a place where you can look at the stars. The trees in this picture represent how people reach for the stars. A peaceful and quiet place like this is definitely a transcendentalist location.

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.

Andromeda Galaxy

Andromeda Galaxy: nearest neighboring major galaxy to our "Milky Way Galaxy". Due to begin a collision with our Milky Way galaxy in about billion years, Andromeda is million light years away from Earth (at the speed of light).

New Supernova Found "Next Door"—Getting Brighter

A freshly exploded star has been confirmed in a relatively nearby galaxy, offering astronomers a glimpse at the earliest stages of a supernova.

NGC 3190 (The Predator) is a spiral galaxy with tightly wound arms and lying in the constellation Leo. It was discovered by William Herschel in 1784. NGC 3190 is member of Hickson 44 galaxy group, estimated at around 80 million light years away, and consisting of four galaxies in a tight group. In 2002 two supernovae were observed in the galaxy.
