Churning Out Stars

The Herschel Space Observatory has uncovered a weird ring of dusty material while obtaining one of the sharpest scans to date of a huge cloud of gas and dust, called NGC 7538.

A Puzzling Cosmic Ring

NASA's Hubble and Spitzer telescopes combined to make these shape-shifting galaxies taking on the form of a giant mask. The icy blue eyes are actually the cores of two merging galaxies, called NGC 2207 and IC 2163, and the mask is their spiral arms.

Galactic Gathering Gives Impressive Light Display

Enceladus looks as though it is half lit by sunlight in this view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. Images like this one are designed to capture the extended plume of icy material spraying from the moon's south polar region.

Astronomers have made the most detailed study yet of an extremely massive young galaxy cluster using three of NASA's Great Observatories. This rare galaxy cluster, located 10 billion light-years from Earth, is almost as massive as 500 trillion suns.
