The star Mira, with its 13-light-year-long tail, zips through the galaxy at 291,000 miles per hour! This image was made from several Galaxy Evolution Explorer images put together into a mosaic.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a galaxy - called IC335 - that's over 60 million light years away from  Earth. Epic Science! TRENDING ON EPICTIMES: AirAsia Flight QZ8501 - Dead Bodies and Debris Found This image shows the galaxy, part of a group with three other galaxies - they're located in the Fornax Galaxy Cluster and seen from the perspective of Earth. …

Thor’s Helmet Nebula - NGC 2359 (also known as Thor's Helmet) is an emission nebula in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light years in size. The central star is the Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution

The Sombrero Galaxy.This massive, beautiful galaxy is over 50,000 light years from tip to tip. Where it gets its name is pretty obvious.
