The Andromeda Galaxy A mere million light-years away, the Andromeda Galaxy really is just next door as large galaxies go. So close, and spanning some light-years, it took 11 different.

The Galaxy Next Door

Hot stars burn brightly in this new image from NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer, showing the ultraviolet side of a familiar face. At approximately 2.5 million light-years away, the Andromeda galaxy, or M31, is our Milky Way's largest galactic neighbor. The entire galaxy spans 260,000 light-years across.

Milky Way Galaxy NGC 4631 is a spiral galaxy found only 25 million light-years away, toward the well-trained northern constellation Canes Venatici. Seen egde-on, the galaxy is similar in size to the Milky Way. Space Photos, Space Images, Hubble Space Telescope, Space And Astronomy, Cosmos, Ciel Nocturne, Spiral Galaxy, Galaxy Painting, Foto Art

NASA Releases Amazing New High-Definition Photos of Jupiter

High-resolution space photography gives us the clearest view of Jupiter yet, and it’s beautiful! After four years and nearly 500 million miles of traveling, NASA’s spacecraft Juno finally reached Jupiter’s atmosphere in 2016 and has been taking awesome photos ever since. Over the last few months, the space probe has […]

Secrets Of The Strange Stars That Circle Our Supermassive Black Hole

High winds are the norm at the center of the Milky Way. Astronomers have now clocked suns orbiting the galactic core at a staggering 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometers) per second. At this rate, Earth would complete its orbit around the sun in a mere three days. What lurks at the galaxy’s core that can accelerate stars to such speeds? Astronomers have considered various possibilities. Does the center of the galaxy harbor a tight cluster of superdense stellar remnants (neutron stars)? Or perhaps a…
