IC 342, the Hidden Galaxy, is positioned only 10 degrees above the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, so its light is heavily obscured and reddened by dust. It is 7 million light-years away but is not part of our Local Group of galaxies. Credit: Bruce Waddington

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

Infrared The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as Messier or NGC is a spiral galaxy approximately 780 kiloparsecs million light-years) from Earth. It is the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way

The Great Carina Nebula is easily seen with the naked eye, though it's 7,500 light-years away.

well damn

well.....FUCK

The scale of planets and stars - Puts things in perspective - funny how the smaller of those stars is more likely to live the longest. Really puts thing in perspective

A new CU-Boulder study indicates spiral galaxies like our Milky Way, and the Galaxy shown here, are larger and more massive than previously believed.

Space. The final frontier.

The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared One of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infrared light. The above.

A star cluster once thought to belong to the Orion Nebula is actually a separate entity, scientists say. A powerful telescope camera made the star cluster NGC 1980 find.

NGC 474 is an elliptical galaxy in the constellation Pisces. This large galaxy is known to possess tidal tails, although their origins remain unknown. These tidal tails may be related to debris left over from absorbing numerous small galaxies in the past.

The Whirlpool Galaxy (M51A or NGC 5194) and (M51B or NGC 5195, left). The Whirlpool Galaxy is a grand-design spiral galaxy, interacting with NGC 5195, a dwarg galxy. Both galaxies are located 23 ± 4 million light-years away in Canes Venatici.
