WISE, NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, has a new view of Barnard or IRAS Ring that is awash in bright green and red dust clouds. Interstellar clouds like these are stellar nurseries, where baby stars are being born.

Astronomer Travis Rector's new book uses art to see the science in space

The colorful Eagle Nebula taken at the National Science Foundation's telescope on Kitt Peak. Located in the constellation of Serpens, the Serpent, the Eagle Nebula is a very luminous open cluster of stars surrounded by dust and gas.

Blue Nebula

Amazingly Beautiful Blue Nebula, a massive interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases.


Fox Fur Nebula, different angle. Remember kids, fur is for animals.

The 'Hand of God' Nebula

The ‘Hand of God’ Nebula. Was so ready for this to be a crock of shit or over photoshopped - but NASA website confirms! This is a real Nebula formation - truly the hand of God!


NGC is a reflection nebula degree northeast of the Orion Nebula. The three NGC objects are divided by darker regions. It is also called The Running Man Nebula and Sharpless Catalog


Red supergiant Monocerotis suddenly brightened for several weeks in early It showed it was cloaked in a never-before-seen cloud structure. Photo captured by Hubble Space Telescope.

Pillars of metallic dust in the Tarantula Nebula

Pillars of metallic dust in the Tarantula Nebula, an H II region in the Large Magellanic Cloud. It was originally thought to be a star, but in 1751 Nicolas Louis de Lacaille recognized its nebular nature.

Nebulae. This is how a star is born, quite literally.

Remix Nebula - cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other gases that attract matter and materials to clump. These so called clumps form stars, planets, and other planetary systems. Nebulae are where the stars are formed!

IC 1318

A beautiful picture of space. If possible I would like to create part of my video to show the Earth's movement around the Sun, to inform people of where our planet is during our seasons. Its tilt is the reason we get seasons in the first place!
