M81 Galaxy is Pretty in Pink

A quartet of Saturn's moons, from tiny to huge, surround and are embedded within the planet's rings in this Cassini composition. Saturn's largest moon, Titan, in the background, and the moon's north polar hood is clearly visible.

Weighing in on the Dumbbell Nebula

Combined observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the newly completed Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile have revealed the throes of stellar birth in the well-studied object known as HH 46/47.
