Hubble Spies a Spiral Snowflake : Together with irregular galaxies, spiral galaxies make up approximately 60 percent of the galaxies in the local universe.

Cosmic forecast: dark clouds will give way to sunshine Lupus 4, a spider-shaped blob of gas and dust, blots out background stars like a dark cloud on a moonless night in this intriguing new image. Although gloomy for now, dense pockets of material within clouds such as Lupus 4 are where new stars form and where they will later burst into radiant life. The Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile captured this new picture. Lupus 4 is located abo...

Astronauts pay a visit to Surveyor 3 On April 17, 1967, NASA’s Surveyor 3 spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., on a mission to the lunar surface.

Bean, who snapped this photo on November 20, 1969. After Surveyor 1’s initial studies...

Aurora and volcanic light pillar That’s no sunset. And that thin red line just above it – that’s not a sun pillar. The red glow on the horizon originates from a volcanic eruption, and the red line is the eruption’s reflection from fluttering atmospheric ice crystals. This unusual volcanic light pillar was captured over Iceland earlier this month. The featured scene looks north from Jökulsárlón toward the erupting volcano Bárðarbunga in the Holuhraun lava field. Even the...
