Hubble, Hubble, Hubble can’t you see? Sometimes your photos just hypnotize me. 🌀⁣⁣⠀⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Outright mesmerizing, this spiral galaxy (NGC 5468) was captured in beautiful detail by our @NASAHubble Telescope. See those REALLY bright lights? Those are dying stars. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Such events create catastrophic explosions known as supernovae, which are some of the most dramatic occurrences in the universe. By either depleting their fuel and collapsing inward or siphoning mass off a companion object and igniting runaway nuclear fusion, they result in intensely bright objects that can rival the light of a whole galaxy. Can you spot the supernovae in this spiral galaxy? ⁣⁣⠀⁣ ⁣⁣⠀⁣ Image credit: @europeanspaceagency/Hubble & NASA, W. Li et al⁣⁣⠀⁣ ⁣⁣⠀⁣ #nasa #dramatic #galaxy #biggie #stars #shinebright⁣⁣⠀⁣
#hubblefriday Some of the most dramatic events in the universe occur when certain stars die — and explode catastrophically in the process.  Such explosions, known as supernovae, mainly occur in a couple of ways. In one scenario, a massive star depletes its fuel at the end of its life, becoming dynamically unstable and unable to support its bulk, causing it to collapse inward and violently explode. In another outcome, a white dwarf (the dense remnant of a once-normal star) in an orbiting stellar couple siphons more mass off its companion than it is able to support, igniting runaway nuclear fusion in its core and beginning the supernova process. Both types result in an intensely bright object in the sky that can rival the light of a whole galaxy.  In the last 20 years the galaxy NGC 5468, visible in this image, has hosted a number of observed supernovae of both the aforementioned types: SN 1999cp, SN 2002cr, SN2002ed, SN2005P and SN2018dfg. Despite being just over 130 million light-years away, the orientation of the galaxy with respect to us makes it easier to spot these new “stars” as they appear; we see NGC 5468 face on, meaning we can see the galaxy’s loose, open spiral pattern in beautiful detail in images such as this one from Hubble.

What would you caption this?📝👆⠀ ⠀ 🔥The Eagle Nebula🔥⠀ ⠀ This is not the first M16 photo Hubble takes, but it's the most detailed! Look at all the details on this picture and all the different colors ! This place is very dense in star formation ! I will now talk about colors : Blue is oxygen, red is sulfur, and green is both nitrogen and hydrogen. 😯🔥 The Eagle Nebula spans 55 to 70 light years. Finally, it was discovered in 1745 by a Swiss astronomer, Jean-Philippe Loys. ⠀ ⠀ 🔎Source: @sb.space⠀ 📸Credits: ©APOD⠀ Become a space lover with👇⠀ @space.photos10⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #astrophotography #galaxy #stars #universe #constellation #interstellar #nebula #milkywaygalaxy #nebulae #nebulosa #astrophotographer #astrography

The Sombrero Galaxy, one of the more unusual-looking barred spiral galaxies, owes its name to its resemblance to the Mexican hat of the same name. It has a large central bulge and a bright nucleus, and its spiral’s arms pass through a thick dust lane, which is the ring encircling the central bulge. The galaxy’s appearance is due to our seeing it edge on. Sombrero Galaxy is classed an an unbarred spiral galaxy and can be found in the constellation of Virgo. It's estimated distance from Earth is 29 million light years. . 🚀 Follow @daily.space.photos 🚀 🚀 Follow @daily.space.photos 🚀 🚀 Follow @daily.space.photos 🚀 . © APOD (NASA) @astronomy_eye . . . . . #galaxy #galaxia #galaxies #interstellar #deepsky #nasa #astronomyphotography #astrophotography #astronomia #astronomie #spacephotography #cosmos #universe #blackhole #blackholes #galactic #astro

The Cone Nebula from Hubble 🔭 . Stars are forming in the gigantic dust pillar called the Cone Nebula. Cones, pillars, and majestic flowing shapes abound in stellar nurseries where natal clouds of gas and dust are buffeted by energetic winds from newborn stars. The Cone Nebula, a well-known example, lies within the bright galactic star-forming region NGC 2264. The Cone was captured in unprecedented detail in this close-up composite of several observations from the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. While the Cone Nebula, about 2,500 light-years away in Monoceros, is around 7 light-years long, the region pictured here surrounding the cone's blunted head is a mere 2.5 light-years across. In our neck of the galaxy that distance is just over half way from our Sun to its nearest stellar neighbors in the Alpha Centauri star system. The massive star NGC 2264 IRS, seen by Hubble's infrared camera in 1997, is the likely source of the wind sculpting the Cone Nebula and lies off the top of the image. The Cone Nebula's reddish veil is produced by glowing hydrogen gas. . © NASA (APOD) . #space #universe #astronomy #interstellar #nature #science #cosmology #stars #nasa #world #photography #outerspace #nebula #cosmos #hubbletelescope #explore #galaxy

#tbt to Space Shuttle Endeavor 🚀 leaving our atmosphere and heading to space, captured by @NASA shuttle training aircraft. #intothestars We have some amazing news! We are going to @NASA in 2 weeks. We are going to be covering the test launch of @boeing ‘s 1st Starliner spacecraft. Stay tuned. www.spaceforhumanity.org Btw, Isn't it amazing to be reminded of how tiny we are when compared to the cosmos. Vía @nasa #spaceforhumanity
