No, seriously. Before I die, I just wanna get the chance to experience pretty much the coolest thing God ever created, in my opinion. The Northern Lights completely encompass the beauty of God's creation.

A Galaxy Collision in NGC 6745  Image Credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)-ESA/Hubble Collaboration  Acknowledgment: Roger Lynds (KPNO/NOAO) et al.    Explanation: Galaxies don't normally look like this. NGC 6745 actually shows the results of two galaxies that have been colliding for only hundreds of millions of years. Just off the above digitally sharpened photograph to the lower right is the smaller galaxy, moving away. The larger galaxy, pictured above, used to be…

NGC two galaxies that have been colliding for hundreds of millions of years. Just off to the lower right is the smaller galaxy, moving away. The larger galaxy used to be a spiral galaxy, now damaged. Gravity has distorted the shapes of the galaxies.

At the Heart of Orion  Credit: Image Data - Hubble Legacy Archive, Processing - Robert Gendler    Explanation: Near the center of this sharp cosmic portrait, at the heart of the Orion Nebula, are four hot, massive stars known as the Trapezium. Gathered within a region about 1.5 light-years in radius, they dominate the core of the dense Orion Nebula Star Cluster. Ultraviolet ionizing radiation from the Trapezium stars, mostly from the brightest star Theta 1 Orionis C powers the complex star…

Arp 188 and the Tadpole’s Tail: Its eye-catching tail is about light-years long – more than 2 times the diameter of the Milky Way – and features massive, bright blue star clusters.

On a Blue Moon  Image Credit & Copyright: Simon Smith    Explanation: Rising at sunset, the gorgeous Full Moon of August 31 became the second Full Moon in a month. According to modern reckoning, that makes it a Blue Moon. In fact, parts of the Full Moon do look a little blue in this sharp lunar portrait. Taken just hours before the exact full phase in delightfully clear skies over Nottingham, UK, it features eye-catching bright rays extending from the prominent young crater Tycho in the…

Rising at sunset, the gorgeous Full Moon of August 2012 became the second Full Moon in a month. According to modern reckoning, that makes it a Blue Moon. In fact, parts of the Full Moon do look a little blue in this sharp lunar portrait.

M45: The Pleiades Star Cluster  Image Credit & Copyright: Robert Gendler    Explanation: Perhaps the most famous star cluster on the sky, the Pleiades can be seen without binoculars from even the depths of a light-polluted city. Also known as the Seven Sisters and M45, the Pleiades is one of the brightest and closest open clusters. The Pleiades contains over 3000 stars, is about 400 light years away, and only 13 light years across. Quite evident in the above photograph are the blue…

The Pleiades Star Cluster, Jan. The Pleiades is one of the brightest and closest open clusters. The Pleiades contains over 3000 stars, is about 400 light-years away, and only 13 light-years across.
