A beautiful view from the space. It is always dangerous and beautiful in the space. Stars and planets make the dark and cold space more shining and vivid.

The small open star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 in Scorpius, about light-years away from Earth.

NGC 3576: Glowing Gas in the Milky Way Date: 28 Oct. 2013. A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions.

The Horsehead Nebula is a cloud of ionized-hydrogen in the constellation Orion. These clouds are lit from within by young, hot stars. The interstellar dust absorbs the light from part of the ionized cloud creating this beautiful contrast. Image Credit: NA

Still, I refuse to regret you. I hope the stars are glowing wherever you are.  - Jessica Therese, from ‘A Different Kind of Heartbreak’

Gabriela Mistral Nebula

"Gabriela Mistral Nebula", another nebula that evokes a pareidolia, in this case the face of the Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral: madrigal mystery and light.

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

The famous Horsehead Nebula is about light-years from Earth, in the constellation Orion. The nebula is located just to the south of the star Alnitak, which is farthest east on Orion's Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex.

No one else notices the baby face huh? ;)

Am I the only ne who sees a baby face in the right side? There are millions of other universes with their own galaxies-- which each have their own black hole (or as some say, birth canal) where that universe was created! So amazing!
