The ghostly envelope in this image is supernova, and the gleaming path that leads from it is a pulsar.
Hidden in one of the darkest corners of the Orion constellation, this cosmic bat spreads its muddy wings through the interstellar space, two thousand light-years away. It is illuminated by the young stars huddled in its core – though wrapped in opaque clouds of dust, their bright rays still illuminate the nebula.
In this illustration, several rings of dust go around the sun. These rings are formed when the gravitations of the planets raise dust grains in orbit around the sun. Recently, scientists have discovered a ring of dust in the orbit of Mercury. Others suggest that the source of Venus dust ring is a group of previously discovered co-ordinate asteroids.
This is the impression of the artist of globular star clusters surrounding the Milky Way.

These negative images of the 2015 BZ509, which is surrounded by yellow, show the first famous interstellar object that has become a permanent part of our solar system. The exo-steroid was probably pulled into our solar system by another stellar system 4,5 billion years ago. He then settled into a retrograde orbit around Jupiter.
A close look at the meteorite diamond matrix that landed in Sudan in 2008. This is considered to be the first evidence of the proto-planet that has helped to form the Earth's planets in our solar system.
2004 EW95 is the first carbon-rich asteroid to confirm its existence in the Kaiper belt and a relic of the primary solar system. This curious object was probably formed in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter before it was thrown billions of miles to its current home in the Keiper belt.
NASA / ESA's Hubble Space Telescope celebrates its 28th anniversary in space with this stunning and colorful 4000-light-years of lagune nebula image of the Earth. While the entire nebula is 55 light-years, this image reveals only a portion of about four light-years.
This is a more starved view of the lagoon nebula using Hubble's infrared capabilities. The reason you can see more stars is that infrared rays can cut clouds of dust and gas to reveal the abundance of the two young stars in the nebula as well as the distant stars in the background.
The Rosetta Nebula is 5000 light-years from the Earth. The distinctive nebula, which some claim to be more like a skull, has a hole in the middle that creates the illusion of its pink shape.
KIC 8462852, also known as the Boyadjian star or Tabi's star, is 1,000 light-years away from us. This is 50% bigger than our sun and 1000 degrees hotter. And it does not behave like any other star, it darkens and does not illuminate sporadically. The dust around the star, depicted here as an illustration of the artist, may be the most likely cause of his strange behavior.
This internal slope of a Martian crater has several seasonal dark stripes called recurrent slope lineae, or RSL, which the November 2017 report interprets as granular streams rather than darkening due to running water. The image is from NASA's HiRISE Camera Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
The impression of this artist shows an explosion of supernova, which contains the illumination of 100 million suns. Supernova iPTF14hls, which has exploded many times, may be the most massive and the longest.
This illustration shows hydrocarbon compounds that are split into carbon and hydrogen in ice giants such as Neptune, turning into a "diamond shower".
This striking image is the star room in Orion nebula where stars are born. The red thread is a stretch of ammonia molecules with a length of 50 light-years. The blue is the gas of the Orion nebula. This image is an integral part of the observations of the telescope Robert S. Bird Green Bank and NASA's wide-infrared research telescope. "We still do not understand in detail how the large gas cloud in our galaxy collapses to form new stars," says Rachel Frisen, one of the major collaborators. "But ammonia is an excellent trace of dense, star-forming gases.
That's what the Earth and its moon look like on Mars. The image is a composition of the best image of the Earth and the best moon image taken on November 20, 2016 by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The orbit camera shoots images in three wavelengths: infrared, red and blue-green. Mars was about 127 million miles from Earth when the images were made.

Впечатлението на художника за това как може да изглежда черна дупка. През февруари изследователи в Китай заявиха, че са забелязали супер-масивна черна дупка с размер 12 милиарда пъти по-голяма от слънцето.
Има ли океани на някоя от луните на Юпитер? Сондът сок, показан в впечатлението на този художник, има за цел да разбере. Картина с любезност от ESA / AOES
Астрономите са открили мощни сияния на кафяво джудже, което е на 20 светлинни години. Това е концепцията на художника за явлението.
Венера, дъното и Юпитер блестят ярко над Матюс, Северна Каролина, в понеделник, 29 юни. Видимата близка среща, наречена конюнкция, придаваше ослепителен изглед на лятното небе. Въпреки че двете планети изглеждат близки заедно, в действителност те са милиони мили една от друга.
Ледената луна на Юпитер Европа може да бъде най-доброто място в Слънчевата система да търси извънземния живот, според НАСА. Луната е с размерите на земната луна и има доказателства, че тя има океан под замръзналата си кора, която може да задържа два пъти повече вода от Земята. Бюджетът на НАСА за 2016 г. включва искане за 30 милиона долара за планиране на мисия за разследване на Европа. Изображението по-горе е взето от космическия кораб "Галилео" на 25 ноември 1999 г. Това е 12-кадрова мозайка и се счита за най-добрия образ на страната на Европа, която е изправена пред Юпитер.
Тази мъглявина, или облак от газ и прах, се нарича RCW 34 или Gum 19. Най-ярките области, които можете да видите, са местата, където газът се нагрява от млади звезди. В крайна сметка газът избухна навън като шампанско, след като бутилката се отвори. Учените наричат това поток от шампанско. Този нов образ на мъглявината е заловен от Много големия телескоп на Европейската космическа организация в Чили. RCW 34 се намира в съзвездието Вела в южното небе. Името означава "платна на кораб" на латински.
Космическият телескоп "Хъбъл" заснема изображенията на трите велики луни на Юпитер – Йо, Калисто и Европа – минаващи едновременно.
Използвайки мощна оптика, астрономите са открили подобно на планета тяло, J1407b, с пръстени 200 пъти по-големи от Сатурн. Това е изображение на художника на пръстените на планетата J1407b, които засенчват звезда.
Пач от звезди изглежда липсва в този образ от обсерваторията Ла Сила в Чили. Но звездите всъщност са все още зад облак от газ и прах, наречен Линдската тъмна мъглявина 483. Облакът е около 700 светлинни години от Земята в съзвездието Серпенс (The Serpent).
Това е най-големият образ на космическия телескоп Хъбъл, който някога е бил сглобен. Това е част от галактиката в съседство, Андромеда (М31).
НАСА е запечатала зашеметяващ нов образ на така наречените "стълбове на творението", едно от най-емблематичните открития на космическата агенция. Гигантските колони от студен газ, в малък район на мъглявината Орел, бяха популяризирани от подобен образ, направен от космическия телескоп Хъбъл през 1995 година.
Астрономите, използващи пространството Хъбъл, събраха тази картина, която показва малка част от пространството в съзвездието Южна полукълбо Форнакс. В това дълбоко космическо изображение са 10 000 галактики, които се връщат назад във времето до няколко стотин милиона години след Големия взрив.
Планетарната мъглявина Abell 33 се появява на пръстеновидно изображение на това изображение, взето с помощта на много големия телескоп на Европейската южна обсерватория. Синият балон беше създаден, когато една звезда на стареене хвърли външните си слоеве и една звезда на преден план се случи да се приведе в съответствие с нея, за да създаде ефект на "диамантен годежен пръстен".
Това изображение на Хъбъл изглежда плаващ мрамор или може би гигантско, безплътно око. Но всъщност в центъра му е мъглявина с гигантска звезда. Учените смятат, че звездата е била 20 пъти по-масивна от нашето слънце, но умира и е предназначена за свръхнова.
