Hubble Serves Up a Holiday Snow Angel The bipolar star-forming region, called Sharpless looks like a soaring, celestial snow angel. The bipolar star-forming region, called Sharpless looks like a soaring, celestial snow angel.
Zeta Ophiuchus, a massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of
A spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality. The Advanced Camera for.
Clouds of Perseus ~ contains over solar masses of gas and dust, but the eye is drawn to red NGC Known as the California Nebula, its characteristic glow of atomic hydrogen gas is fueled by ultraviolet light from luminous blue star Xi Persei.
The Eridanus Void. This area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by matter once present in the region.

This Hubble Space Telescope view shows one of the most dynamic and intricately detailed star-forming regions in space, located light-years away in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way. (Image: NASA, ESA and A.
