Did you know, the Horsehead Nebula is a ionized-hydrogen cloud? Young, hot stars light it from the inside. (photo: NASA via Hubblesite)

The Horse Head Nebula is a cloud of ionized- hydrogen in the constellation Orion. The clouds are lit from within by young hot stars. The interstellar dust absobs the light from part of ionized cloud creating this beautiful contrast

LOOK: Awesome Photos From The #2 Space Agency

Best Of European Space Agency Photos - Herchel's Image Of Andromeda Galaxy The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are

The European Southern Observatory captured this stunning image of the Carina Nebula.

ESO’s Very Large Telescope has delivered the most detailed infrared image of the Carina Nebula stellar nursery taken so far. Many previously hidden features, scattered across a spectacular celestial landscape of gas, dust and young stars, have emerged.

This whimsical Auroral Corona was spotted over Norway and we think it's absolutely breathtaking! (photo: "Harald Albrigtsen")

Because a galaxy cluster sits between the supernova and the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers can see four versions of the cataclysmic explosion all at once!

Astronomers Have Been Watching This Star Blow Up Over, and Over, and Over Again

Observing the "Einstein Cross" - The light from a distant supernova can be seen split in four directions around the gravitational lensing effect of a galaxy cluster.
