Abell 370: Galaxy Cluster Gravitational Lens  “While imaging the cluster of galaxies Abell 370, astronomers had noted an unusual arc to the right of many cluster galaxies. Although curious, one initial response was to avoid commenting on the arc because nothing like it had ever been noted before. In the mid-1980s, however, better images allowed astronomers to identify the arc as a prototype of a new kind of astrophysical phenomenon – the gravitational lens effect of entire cluster of gala...

The huge storm churning through the atmosphere in Saturn’s northern hemisphere overtakes itself as it encircles the planet in this true-color view from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.This picture, captured on Feb. 25, 2011, was taken about 12 weeks after the storm began, and the clouds by this time had formed a tail that wrapped around the planet. Some of the clouds moved south and got caught up in a current that flows to the east (to the right) relative to the storm head. This tai...

Milky Way over Devils Tower A mysterious formation known as Devils Tower rises into the dark above northeastern Wyoming’s prairie landscape in this 16 frame panoramic view. Seen against the night sky’s thin, pale clouds and eerie green airglow, star clusters and nebulae of the Milky Way arc toward the galaxy's central realm at right. Of course the scene contains the Milky Way’s own haunting and grisly visages of halloween, including ghosts, a flaming skull, a glowing eye and a...
