Thackary's Globules. Located  in rich star fields & hydrogen gas, these opaque clouds of interstellar dust & gas are so large they might be able to form stars. They are located in IC 2944, a bright stellar nursery about 5900 ly away toward the constellation Centaurus. The largest of these dark globules, first spotted by S African astronomer A. D. Thackeray in 1950, is likely two separate but overlapping clouds.

NGC 1300 by Steven Marx          A barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about 110,000 light-years across; just slightly larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster, a cluster of 200 galaxies. [**]

Long-term fans will know that images like this are my favourite.  Anything that gives us a sense of exactly how tiny we are in the universe makes me shiver. But do we really have a sense of it?
