Visible as a small, sparkling hook in the dark sky, this beautiful object is known as or for short. It is a starburst galaxy, so named because of the incredibly (and unusually) high rate of star formation occurring within it.
Hubble's newest camera captured a pair of galaxies dancing, nicnamed "the mice" because of long tails of stars & gas. The pair will eventually merge into one galaxy. This image shows the most detail & stars ever seen in these galaxies.
A Comet and a ClusterThis beautiful image shows the comet Lovejoy as it moves past the Pleiades Cluster. While the Pleiades Star Cluster has been studied for thousands of years, the comet Lovejoy was only discovered in August of 2014 by the amateur.
This image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the galaxy which was part of a large survey of galaxies that sought to confirmed the link between mergers and galaxies hosting relativistic jets from supermassive black holes.
