Dusty Galaxy, Home to an Exploding Star: NASA Image of the Day

2016-11-03T10:49:13+00:00

Fun fact: Dusty Galaxy was actually my stripper name back in the 70s. I kid of course, I had a completely different stripper name. Anyhoo...space. I absolutely love these images. Exploding stars from long ago and galaxies that look like a giant crack in reality, this just confirms two things [...]

2016-11-03T10:49:59+00:00

This is an image of the "Little Sombrero" galaxy, a spiral galaxy seen on its edge and called sombrero because it looks absolutely nothing like a type of wide-brimmed hat from Mexico. Or maybe it does if you have spent way too many hours staring at the sky through a [...]

Hubble’s View of the Polar Ring of Arp 230: NASA Image of the Day

2016-11-03T10:51:09+00:00

Here we have a clear and distinct image of the Star Child on his way from Europa. No, that's silly. It's really the cosmic cocoon of Adam Warlock obviously. Anyone can see that. In reality it is Arp 230 a galaxy of strange shape and part of the "Atlas of [...]

This is gorgeous. Not much more to say about this other than that. Hubble is awesome. The largest NASA Hubble Space Telescope image ever assembled, this sweeping bird’s-eye view of a portion of the Andromeda galaxy (M31) is the sharpest large composite image ever taken of our galactic next-door neighbor.
