Integrated flux nebula around M81

Images reveal a bright nucleus and two well resolved spiral arms studded with bright regions of star formation. These images show that has a significant amount of cold dust associated with the spiral arms.

The Eta Carinae (that bright star in the center) is one of the most massive stars in the galaxy — about 100 times the mass of the sun, and a million times brighter. (Taken in 2005 by the Spitzer Telescope.) | 12 Amazing Photos That Will Make You Feel So Very Insignificant

Eta Carinae

New view of the Carina nebula from NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope. Eta Carinae is the bright star at the center of the nebula and is one of the most massive stars in the galaxy. Its blinding glare is sculpting and destroying the surrounding nebula.

Lagoon nebula in Sagittarius | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Looking amazing with narrowband filters combined to RGB. The color is valid given that it represents various combinations of Hydrogen, Sulpur (II) and Oxygen (III) assigned to Red, Green and Blue colours.

The Witch's Broom Nebula is also part of the famous Veil Nebula complex, this being the western portion. The entire complex is the remnant of a powerful supernova explosion which occurred thousands of years ago, sending elements forged in the destroyed stars core into space. The bright star is 52 Cygni.

Milky Way and Lyrid Meteor over Crater Lake - by Brad Goldpaint

Meteor over Crater Lake, Oregon. I saw this lake flying over Oregon in a plane. It was really impressive, it's a collapsed volcano. You can hike around it if you go to Crater Lake National Park

NGC 2276 and NGC 2300 are "boundary" targets in that they are the northernmost objects in the New General Catalog of space stuff. NGC 2276 is a beautiful spiral galaxy that is punctuated by pink star forming regions. In fact it has one of the highest rates of star formation that has been measured. Its neighbor, NGC 2300, appears as a regular elliptical galaxy that shows some evidence of shells (and perhaps former structure).

NGC 6357, the War and Peace Nebula

The War and Peace Nebula - I should probably start a separate science/nerdy board, but this is so stunning it counts as art
