From the International Space Station, NASA astronaut Christina Koch snapped and posted this image of the planet Venus at sunrise.

This Hubble image stars Messier a beautiful spiral galaxy located roughly 60 million light-years from the Milky Way in the constellation of Virgo (the Virgin). The galaxy is part of the Virgo Cluster, a gathering of galaxies that is over strong.

Chandra :: Photo Album :: SN 1006 :: July 01, 2008

Just over a thousand years ago, the stellar explosion known as supernova SN 1006 was observed. It was brighter than Venus, and visible during the day for weeks. The brightest supernova ever recorded on Earth, this spectacular light show was documented in China, Japan, Europe, and the Arab world.

Chandra :: Photo Album :: G292.0+1.8 :: October 23, 2007

The aftermath of the death of a massive star is shown in beautiful detail in this composite image of G292.0+1.8. In color is the Chandra X-ray Observatory image - easily the deepest X-ray image ever obtained of this supernova remnant - and in white is optical data from the Digitized Sky Survey. Although considered a "textbook" case of a supernova remnant, the intricate structure shown here reveals a few surprises.

Intricate wisps of glowing gas float amid a myriad of stars in this image created by combining data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory.

Chandra :: Photo Album :: N132D :: 04 Oct 05

This beautiful image shows a glowing horseshoe-shaped cloud of hot gas against a backdrop of thousands of stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy. Observations with Chandra (X-ray/blue) and Hubble (optical/pink & purple) were used to make this composite image of N132D, a supernova remnant that was produced by the explosion of a massive star.

This image is NGC 6543 known as the Cat's Eye Nebula as it appears to the Chandra X-Ray Observatory and Hubble Telescope. A planetary nebula is a phase of stellar evolution that the sun should experience several billion years from now.

Chandra :: Photo Album :: NGC 6543 :: July 30, 2008

This composite of data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and Hubble Space Telescope is a new look for NGC 6543, better known as the Cat's Eye nebula. This famous object is a so-called planetary nebula that represents a phase of stellar evolution that the Sun should experience several billion years from now.

Chandra :: Photo Album :: G352.7-0.1 :: April 10, 2014

Supernova remnants are created when a massive star explodes and its remains are hurled into space. Astronomers have found a supernova remnant that it is sweeping up a remarkable amount of material—equivalent to 45 times the mass of the Sun—as it expands. This supernova remnant is called G352.7-0.1 and is seen in this composite image containing X-rays from Chandra (blue), radio waves from the VLA (pink), infrared data from Spitzer (orange), and optical data from the DSS (white).

NGC which is found in the center of the so-called Flame Nebula about light years from Earth. In this image, X-rays from Chandra are seen as purple, while infrared data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope are colored red, green, and blue.
