Imagine of NEWBORN STARThis unprecedented image of Herbig-Haro object HH 46/47 combines radio observations acquired with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) with much shorter wavelength visible light observations from ESO’s New Technology Telescope (NTT). The ALMA observations (orange and green, lower right) of the newborn star reveal a large energetic jet moving away from us, which in the visible is hidden by dust and gas. To the left (in pink and purple) the visible part of the jet is seen, streaming partly towards us.

NASA Takes “Rose” Galaxy Photo for Hubble Telescope Anniversary
Who knew we had a “rose-shaped” galaxy in space? The astronomers who run the Hubble Space Telescope did. In celebration of the 21st anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope’s deployment into space, astronomers at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, pointed Hubble’s eye to an especially photogenic group of interacting galaxies called Arp 273.
The larger of the spiral galaxies, known as UGC 1810, has a disk that is tidally distorted into a rose-like shape by the gravitational tidal pull of the companion galaxy below it, known as UGC 1813. A swath of blue jewels across the top is the combined light from clusters of intensely bright and hot young blue stars. These massive stars glow fiercely in ultraviolet light.

The bright summer Milky Way from Scorpius to Sagittarius and Aquila appear over rocks and sand pipe formations of Kodachrome Basin State Park in Utah, USA.
Also notable in the sky are banded green patches which are airglow; natural emission of the Earth upper atmosphere which is generally faint in the visible lights.
