The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope – with a little help from an amateur astronomer – has produced one of the best views yet of nearby spiral galaxy Messier 106.
Shockwaves originating from the central starburst region of galaxy Messier 82 are most likely the source of bright clouds within a “cap” of gas clouds located some 40,000 light years away, astronomers have discovered.
Through detailed study of the constellation Ursa Major, astronomers have reportedly found two new clouds of hydrogen gas.
While searching for data looking for star-forming regions around a galaxy located more than 200 million light years away, researchers have accidentally discovered that it is, in fact, the largest known spiral galaxy in the entire universe.
Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) have managed to capture a new infrared image of 47 Tucanae, the second most massive globular cluster in the galaxy.
Astronomers combine multiple images to create a wide-field mosaic of the Cygnus Loop, sure to be one of the best images produced this year.
NASA and the ESA reveal a Hubble Space Telescope image of a planetary nebula that resembles a Christmas ribbon.
