Space. . The Rings Queen's.. M 0644-741 (sometimes called The Southern Ellipse) is a ring galaxy, approximately 300 million light-years away in the direction of the southern constellation Volans. It is receding from us at about 6600 km/sec. The yellowish off-center nucleus was once the center of a normal spiral galaxy.

The Soul Nebula (IC is a fairly large emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is often referred to as the “Embryo Nebula” because of its characteristic shape. Its neighbour is IC 1805 (the Heart Nebula). Photo by Azin Dark Skies.

42 of the Most Beautiful Space Images Captured This Year

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was first carried into orbit by a Space Shuttle in 1990 and currently remains in operation. As a 2.4m (7.9ft) aperture telescope in low Earth orbit, Hubble's four main instruments observe in the near ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared. The telescope is named aft

APOD: 2014 December 26 - Cetus Duo M77 and NGC 1055

At the top, large spiral galaxy NGC 1055, and the bottom spiral Messier 77, in this sharp cosmic view toward the aquatic constellation Cetus. The narrowed, dusty appearance of edge-on spiral NGC 1055 contrasts nicely with the face-on view of M77's bright nucleus and spiral arms. Both over 100,000 light-years across, the pair are dominant members of a small galaxy group about 60 million light-years away. M77 and NGC 1055 are separated by at least 500,000 light-years.
