Pillars of Creation - Taken in 1995 by Hubble Telescope, forming in Eagle Nebula light years away. And it's about 4 light years tall! Personally, one of the most beautiful, inspiring and fascinating images I've ever seen :).
Some 60 million light-years away in the southerlyconstellation Corvus, two large galaxies are colliding. Stars in the two galaxies, cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, very rarely collide in the course of the ponderous cataclysm that lasts for hundreds of millions of years. But the galaxies' large clouds of molecular gas and dust often do, triggering furious episodesof star formation near the center of the cosmic wreckage
New image of red nebula light-years from Earth: In the middle of little-known cloud of hydrogen nebula called Gum brilliant hot young stars are giving off energetic radiation that causes the surrounding hydrogen to glow with a characteristic red hue.
