The Hourglass Nebula: This planetary nebula sits 8,000 light years away in the Musca constellation. The Hourglass Nebula formed from a dying Sun-like star that expelled its outer layers near the end of the red giant phase of its life. Once the gas is expelled the core is all that remains. The gas can form many different shapes, with this nebula the gas cloud moved slower while stellar winds moved faster. This caused the cloud to be shaped like an hourglass.

Hubble picture of the Engraved Hourglass Nebula (also known as MyCn is a young planetary nebula situated in the southern constellation Musca about light-years away from Earth. The formation of the shape of the inner "eye" is not yet fully understood.

IC 410 in Auriga, the scale in a sky This zoom in series of photographs of the emission nebula IC 410 was taken by Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsavainio from his observatory at the city center of Oulu. The images show the actual size of IC 410 in the sky. The white circle in the images show the angular size of the full Moon in the sky. The Moon has an apparent diameter of ~30 arc minutes or 0.5 degrees.

A "double bubble" nebula, N30B http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/nebula/2002/29/

A unique peanut-shaped cocoon of dust, called a reflection nebula, surrounds a cluster of young, hot stars in this view from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. the 'double bubble' called is inside a larger nebula named DEM L

Better known as M106, bright spiral galaxy NGC 4258 is about 30 thousand light years across and 21 million light years away toward the northern constellation Canes Venatici. The yellow and red hues in this composite image show the galaxy's sweeping spiral arms as seen in visible and infrared light. But x-ray and radio data (blue and purple) reveal two extra spiral arms -- arms that don't align with the more familiar tracers of stars, gas, and dust.

This composite image is of spiral galaxy (NGC optical data from the Digitized Sky Survey is yellow, radio data from the Very Large Array is purple, X-ray data from Chandra is blue, and infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope is red.

Barred spiral galaxy NGC 1365 is truly a majestic island universe some 200,000 light-years across. Located a mere 60 million light-years away toward the chemical constellation Fornax, NGC 1365 is a dominant member of the well-studied Fornax galaxy cluster.

“Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.

Hubble's 20th anniversary image shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, which is even more dramatic than fiction, captures the chaotic activity atop a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars
