Solar eclipse and Milky Way seen from international space station.

The Solar Eclipse from Space. This is by far the most amazing image you’ll see all week. While we did see some great images of Sunday’s ring of fire eclipse from Earth, nothing can match this amazing shot taken from space.

Milky Way and Aurora Australis - The ghostly glow of the Milky Way and the Southern Lights (also known as the aurora australis) are featured in this photo taken by Dutch astronaut André Kuipers on March

awesome

It just 'accidently' makes the symbol of infinity! perfect since in symbolism, the sun symbols Christ, the moon the Church. ~ mw ~ Fixed position photograph of the sun, taken at the same time of day over a year. Looks like the infinity symbol!

The scale of it all! Understanding the size of Earth in comparison to the rest of our solar system -- an amazing illustration to visualize the size and scale of our world!

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

Enceladus Jets: The icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus spurts ice particles, water vapor, and trace organic molecules into space. Intriguing to astrobiologists.

Cassini imaging scientists used views like this one to help them identify the source locations for individual jets spurting ice particles, water vapor and trace organic compounds from the surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus.

A spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality. The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) on the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a dramatic view of gas and dust sculpted by intense radiation from hot young stars deep in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8).

Cathedral to Massive Stars | Estimates made from distance, brightness and standard solar models had given one star in the open cluster #Pismis24 over 200 times the mass of our Sun, making it one of the most massive stars known. This star is the brightest object located just above the gas front in the featured image. Pismis 24-1 derives its brilliant luminosity not from a single star but from three at least. Component stars would still remain near 100 solar masses...

Pismis located at the core of small open star cluster Pismis can be seen in this image provided by NASA and ESA. The star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 that extends on the arm of the Sagittarius constellation.
