NGC 602 and Beyond
Image Credit: X-ray: Chandra: NASA/CXC/Univ.Potsdam/L.Oskinova et al;
Optical: Hubble: NASA/STScI; Infrared: Spitzer: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Explanation: Near the outskirts of the Small Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy some 200 thousand light-years distant, lies 5 million year young star cluster NGC 602. Surrounded by natal gas and dust, NGC 602 is featured in this stunning Hubble image of the region, augmented by images in the X-ray by Chandra, and in the infrared by Spitzer. Fantastic ridges and swept back shapes strongly suggest that energetic radiation and shock waves from NGC 602's massive young stars have eroded the dusty material and triggered a progression of star formation moving away from the cluster's center. At the estimated distance of the Small Magellanic Cloud, the Picture spans about 200 light-years, but a tantalizing assortment of background galaxies are also visible in this sharp multi-colored view. The background galaxies are hundreds of millions of light-years or more beyond NGC 602.

Wolf-Rayet Star 124: Stellar Wind Machine
Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, NASA, ESA; Processing & License: Judy Schmidt

Explanation: Some stars explode in slow motion. Rare, massive Wolf-Rayet stars are so tumultuous and hot that they are slowly disintegrating right before our telescopes. Glowing gas globs each typically over 30 times more massive than the Earth are being expelled by violent stellar winds. Wolf-Rayet star WR 124, visible near the featured image center spanning six light years across, is thus creating the surrounding nebula known as M1-67. Details of why this star has been slowly blowing itself apart over the past 20,000 years remains a topic of research. WR 124 lies 15,000 light-years away towards the constellation of the Arrow (Sagitta). The fate of any given Wolf-Rayet star likely depends on how massive it is, but many are thought to end their lives with spectacular explosions such as supernovas or gamma-ray bursts.

M77: Spiral Galaxy with an Active Center
Image Credit: Hubble, NASA, ESA; Processing & License: Judy Schmidt

Explanation: What's happening in the center of nearby spiral galaxy M77? The face-on galaxy lies a mere 47 million light-years away toward the constellation of the Sea Monster (Cetus). At that estimated distance, this gorgeous island universe is about 100 thousand light-years across. Also known as NGC 1068, its compact and very bright core is well studied by astronomers exploring the mysteries of supermassive black holes in active Seyfert galaxies. M77 and its active core glows bright at x-ray, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and radio wavelengths. The featured sharp image of M77 was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and is dominated by the (visible) red light emitted by hydrogen. The image shows details of the spiral's winding spiral arms as traced by obscuring dust clouds, and red-tinted star forming regions close in to the galaxy's luminous core.

Yup, one of the wallpapers I have on my phone.

Andromeda Galaxy
The closest major galaxy to our Milky Way is also the most distant object that most people can see with the unaided eye. Though the Andromeda Galaxy is 2.5 million light-years from Earth, its trillion stars are enough to emit a strong glow across space. 
This picture of the Andromeda galaxy is the most famous.

I think most people have had it as their wallpaper at onetime or the other.

For sure.

Comment by Stephen on March 26, 2020 at 7:13pm

They are beautiful.

Comment by Mrs.B on March 26, 2020 at 7:03pm

Don't know anything about them. I just enjoy looking.

Rosette Nebula
A gas cloud teeming with newly formed stars, this nebula is roughly 130 light-years in diameter. Ionised hydrogen makes up much of the cloud-like spray of red plumes that give the Rosette Nebula its distinctive colour and shape. 

Tell me what you think is the centre of the nebula a hole where you can see through it to stars beyond or a dark dust cloud and stars in front of it.

Well, that proves it Doone, we live on a flat earth.
