Artist's impression of the simultaneous stellar eclipse and planetary transit events on Kepler-1647

An artist's impression of the simultaneous stellar eclipse and planetary transit events on b. Such a double eclipse event is known as a syzygy. Any rocky moons orbiting the Jupiter-like planet could theoretically have liquid water.

The hourglass-shaped nebula Sharpless 2-106 glows in a picture by NASA and taken by the Gran Telescopio CANARIAS in Spain's Canary Islands.

Universe - The nebula Messier 78 (also known as M 78 or NGC is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion. It was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1780 and included by Charles Messier in his catalog of comet-like objects that same year.

NGC 7714 es una galaxia espiral en la constelación de Piscis. Fue descubierto por John Herschel el 18 de septiembre 183

NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a passing galaxy (not pictured) during a near-collision approximately 100 million years ago.


NGC 3190 is a spiral galaxy with tightly wound arms and lying in the constellation Leo. It was discovered by William Herschel in NGC 3190 is member of Hickson 44 galaxy group, estimated at around 80 million light years and consisting of four

Challenging the Unified Model of Black Holes in Galaxies

This infographic explains a popular theory of active supermassive black holes, referred to as the unified model -- and how new data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, is at conflict with the model.


Smaller satellite galaxies caught by a spiral galaxy are distorted into elongated structures consisting of stars, which are known as tidal streams, as shown in this artist's impression. The new survey has, for the first time, shown the presence of such te

Visible View of Pillar and Jets HH 901/902 Hubble's 20th anniversary image shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, which is even more dramatic than fiction, captures the chaotic activity atop a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars
