Hi, Bennu! NASA’s OSIRIS REX mission, headed for the primitive asteroid Bennu, sends back pictures as it approaches its December 3 goal.
These three panels reveal a supernova before, after and after 920 million light years from the earth (left to right). Supernova, dubbed iPTF14gqr, is unusual, because even if the star was massive, its explosion was fast and weak. Researchers believe this is due to a companion star who siped off his mass.
This is an artist’s illustration of what a Neptune-size moon would look like killing the giant Kepler-1625b exoplanet in a star system 8000 light years from Earth. It may be the first exoner ever discovered.

These negative images of the 2015 BZ509, which are circled in yellow, show the first known interstellar object that has become a permanent part of our solar system. The exo asteroid probably entered our solar system from another star system 4.5 billion years ago. It then went into a retrograde orbit around Jupiter.
A closer look at the diamond matrix in a meteorite landing in Sudan 2008. This is considered to be the first proof of a prototype that helped shape the earthly planets of our solar system.
2004 EW95 is the first colonial asteroid that was confirmed to exist in the Kuiperbelt and a relic of the primordial solar system. This curious object was probably formed in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter before he was thrown billions of miles to his current home in the Kuiperbelt.
NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope celebrates 28th anniversary in space with this amazing and colorful image of the Lagoon Nebula 4000 light years from Earth. While the entire nebula is 55 light years over, this picture reveals only a part of about four light years.
This is a more star-filled view of the lagoon block, using Hubble’s infrared properties. The reason you can see more stars is that infrared can cut through dust and gas clouds to reveal the abundance of both young stars in the nebula, as well as more distant stars in the background.
Rosettnebeln is 5000 light years from the earth. The distinctive nebula, as any statement looks like a skull, has a hole in the middle that creates an illusion of its rosy-like shape.
An illustration shows the discovery of a repetitive rapid wreckage from a mysterious source of 3 billion light years from the earth.
KIC 8462852, also known as Boyajians Star or Tabby’s Star, is 1000 light years from us. It’s 50% bigger than our sun and 1000 degrees warmer. And it does not behave like any other star, fading and shining sporadically. Dust around the star, depicted here in an artist’s illustration, can be the most likely reason for his strange behavior.
This inner slope of a martrater has several of the seasonal dark lines called “recurring slope lines” or RSL, that a November 2017 report interprets granular flows, rather than darker due to liquid water. The image is from the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
This artist’s impression shows a supernova explosion containing the brightness of 100 million suns. Supernova iPTF14hls, which has exploded several times, may be the most massive and longest lasting ever observed.
This illustration shows hydrocarbon compounds that are divided into hydrocarbons and hydrogen inside ice guns, such as Neptune, and become a “diamond rain”.
This striking image is the star chamber of the Orion Nebula, where the stars were born. The red filament is a stretch of ammonia molecules that measure 50 light years. The blue represents the gas in the Orion Nebula. This image is a compilation of observation from Robert C. Byrd’s Green Bank Telescope and NASA’s Widescreen Infrared Survey Explore Telescope. “We still do not understand in detail how big clouds of gas in our galaxy collapse to form new stars,” says Rachel Friesen, one of the co-researchers. “But ammonia is an excellent trace of dense star-forming gas.”
Here’s how the Earth and Moon look like Mars. The image is a composite of the best earth image and the best moon shot taken November 20, 2016, by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The Orbiter’s camera takes pictures in three wavelength bands: infrared, red and blue-green. Mars was about 127 million miles from the earth when the pictures were taken.
PGC 1000714 was originally considered a common elliptical galaxy, but a closer analysis revealed the incredibly rare discovery of a galaxy of Hoag. It has a round core surrounded by two independent rings.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft took these pictures of the planet’s mysterious hexagon-shaped jet stream in December 2016. The six-hole was detected in photos taken by Voyager spacecraft in the early 1980s. It is estimated to have a diameter that is wider than two soils.
A death star emits a green glow in this Hubble space telescope image of the crab bell, which lies about 6,500 light years from Earth in the constellation Taurus. NASA released the image for Halloween 2016 and featured the theme in its press release. The agency said that the “ghoulish-looking item still has a pulse”. In the middle of the crab Nebula is crushed core, or “heart” of an exploded star. The heart spins 30 times per second and produces a magnetic field that generates 1 trillion volts, NASA said.
Peering through the thick pond of the galactic bolt revealed an international team of astronomers the unusual mix of stars in the star cluster called Terzan 5. The new results indicate that Terzan 5 is one of the bump’s primordial building blocks, probably the relics of the early winter days.
An artist’s perception of Planet Nine, which would be the longest planet in our solar system. Similar cluster courses of extreme objects on the edge of our solar system suggest a massive planet is there.
An illustration of the paths in the new and previously known extremely remote Solar System objects. The cluster of most of their paths indicates that they are likely to be affected by something massive and very distant, the proposed Planet X.
Say hi to the Dark Galaxy Dragonfly 44. Like our Milky Way, it has a halo of spherical clusters of stars around the core.
A classic nova occurs when a white dwarf star receives a question from its secondary star (a red dwarf) over a period of time, causing a thermonuclear reaction to the surface that eventually erupts into a single visible outbreak. This creates a 10,000-fold increase in brightness, depicted here in an artist’s rendering.
Gravitational lenses and space twisting are visible in the image of nearby and distant galaxies captured by Hubble.
In the middle of our galaxy, Vintergatan, researchers discovered an X-shaped structure in a tightly packed group of stars.
Meet UGC 1382: What astronomers thought was a normal elliptic galaxy (left) was actually shown as a massive disk galaxy consisting of different parts when viewed with ultraviolet and deep optical data (center and right). In a complete reversal of normal galaxy structure, the center is younger than its outer spiral disc.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of the crab nebula and its “beat heart”, which is a neutron star to the right of the two bright stars in the center of the image. The neutron star pulses 30 times a second. The rainbow colors are visible due to the movement of the material in the nebula that occurs during the loss of the image.
The Hubble Space Telescope captured an image of a hidden galaxy weaker than Andromeda or Winter Street. This low-lying galaxy, called the UGC 477, is located over 110 million light years away in the constellation of the Pisces.
On April 19th, NASA released new images of bright craters on Ceres. This photo shows Haulani Crater, which has evidence of landslides from the rim. Researchers believe that some craters on the dwarf planet are bright because they are relatively new.
This illustration shows millions of dust grids NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has collapsed near Saturn. A few dozen of them seem to have come from our solar system.
This image from the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO Paranal Observatory in Chile shows a fantastic concentration of galaxies called Fornax Cluster, located in the southern part of Hemisfär. In the middle of this cluster, in the middle of the three bright blobs on the left side of the image lies a cD galaxy – a galactic cannibal that has grown in size by consuming smaller galaxies.
This image shows the central region of the Tarantula Nebula in the Great Magellanic Cloud. The young and dense star cluster R136, containing hundreds of massive stars, is visible at the bottom right of the image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

An artist’s impression of what a black hole may look like. In February, researchers in China said they had discovered a super-massive black hole 12 billion times the size of the sun.
Are there any oceans on any of Jupiter’s moons? The juice probe shown in this artist’s impression aims to find out. Image with permission of ESA / AOES
Astronomers have discovered powerful aurora on a brown dwarf that is 20 light years away. This is an artist’s concept of the phenomenon.
Venus, the Bottom and Jupiter shine brightly over Matthews, North Carolina, Monday, June 29th. The obvious close encounter, called a conjunction, has given a dazzling view of the summer sky. Even though the two planets seem to be close to each other, they are in fact millions of miles apart.
Jupiter’s Ice Age Europe can be the best place in the solar system to look for alien life, according to NASA. The moon is about the moon of the earth and there is evidence that there is a sea under its frozen crust that can hold twice as much water as the earth. The NASA’s 2016 budget includes a request of $ 30 million to plan an assignment to investigate Europe. The image above was taken by Galileo Spacecraft on November 25, 1999. It is a 12-frame mosaic and is considered to be the best picture still on Europe’s side facing Jupiter.
This nebula or cloud of gas and dust, called RCW 34 or Gum 19. The brightest areas you can see are where the gas is heated by young stars. Eventually the gas broke out like champagne after a bottle of uncorked. Researchers call this champagne flow. This new image of the nebula was captured by the European Space Agency’s very large telescope in Chile. RCW 34 is in the constellation Vela in the southern hemisphere. The name means “sailing on a ship” in Latin.
Hubble Space Telescope captured images of Jupiter’s three great moons – Io, Callisto and Europe – immediately.

A plaster of stars appears to be missing in the image from the La Silla Observatory in Chile. But the stars are still behind a cloud of gas and dust called Lynd’s Dark Nebula 483. The cloud is about 700 light years from the earth in the constellation Serpens.
This is the largest Hubble Space Telescope image ever assembled. It is part of the nearby galaxy, Andromeda (M31).
NASA has captured a stunning new image of the so-called “Pillars of Creation”, one of the space agency’s most iconic discoveries. The giant columns of cold gas, in a small area of the eagle bollard, were populated by a similar image taken by the Hubble 1995 space telescope.
Astronomers using the Hubble space merged this picture showing a small part of space in the southern hemisphere constellation Fornax . Within this deep space image is 10,000 galaxies, dating back to a few hundred million years after the storm.
Planetary Nebula Abell 33 seems ring-like in this picture, taken using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope. The blue bubble was created when an aging star threw its outer layers and a star in the foreground happened to adapt to it to create a “diamond engagement ring” effect.
This Hubble image sees a floating marble or perhaps a giant, disembodied eye. But it’s actually a nebula with a giant star in the center. Researchers think the star used to be 20 times more massive than our sun, but it dies and is intended to go supernova.
