Cinderella's Slipper Galaxy?  Visible as a small, sparkling hook in the dark sky, this beautiful object is known as J082354.96+280621.6, or J082354.96 for short. It is a starburst galaxy, so named because of the incredibly (and unusually) high rate of star formation occurring within it.   Hat tip to Phil Plait and his fans for noticing the galaxy and giving it a cool name.  Image: ESA/Hubble & NASA, M. Hayes [high-resolution]  Caption: Hubble Heritage Team

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.
