The star Mira, with its 13-light-year-long tail, zips through the galaxy at 291,000 miles per hour! This image was made from several Galaxy Evolution Explorer images put together into a mosaic.

A real shooting star! Mira (MY-rah) is a star that scientists have studied for 400 years. But NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explvery surprising image of Mira. It showed for the first time that Mira has a long tail of dust and light-years long!

M45: The Pleiades Star Cluster . 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. Credit & Copyright: Robert Gendler

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.

The Pleiades star cluster (M45) is a group of 800 stars formed about 100 million years ago. The cluster is located 410 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Taurus.

Hodge 301 Hodge 301 is a star cluster located in the Tarantula Nebula about 168,000 light years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud Galaxy. The Tarantula Nebula is a star forming region, fueled by the star clusters hidden inside.

Super Star Cluster #Westerlund2! This cluster is so massive that it is expected to eventually evolve into a globular cluster.  It hosts a dozen O-class hypergiant stars, each one with a luminosity 30,000 - 1,000,000 times greater than that of our Sun.

Ghostly Reflections in the Pleiades. The Hubble Space Telescope has caught the eerie, wispy tendrils of a dark interstellar cloud being destroyed by the passage of one of the brightest stars in the Pleiades star cluster. Like a flashlight beam shining off the wall of a cave, the star is reflecting light off the surface of pitch black clouds of cold gas laced with dust. These are called reflection nebulae.
