Galaxy in Different Lights

The 'Dumbbell nebula,' also known as Messier 27, pumps out infrared light in this image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Planetary nebulae are now known to be the remains of stars that once looked a lot like our sun.

Weighing in on the Dumbbell Nebula

How many rings do you see in this new image of galaxy Messier 94, also known as NGC 4736? At first glance one might see a number of them, astronomers believe there is just one. This image was captured in infrared light by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

Stellar Storm of Infrared Light

A dying star, called the Helix nebula, is shown surrounded by the tracks of asteroids in an image captured by NASA's WISE. Skirting around the edges of the Helix nebula are the footprints of asteroids marching across the field of view.
