The Milky Way ! There are Stars in the Milky Way. It will take Light Years to travel from the beginning to the end of our Milky Way. In the center of the Milky Way there are a Black hole (Sagittarius A) The Mass of our Sun!

What can one say..... utterly uncomprehendingly beautiful!!!!  not enough i know :)    OriOnNeB

The Orion Nebula (also known as Messler 42 or NGC is a Diffuse nebula situated south of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. The universe is crazy

Zeta Ophiuchus, a massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate 80,000 times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of 400 light years or so, it should be one of the brightest stars in the sky … yet it actually appears relatively dim to the eye.

there are millions of planets, around millions of suns, in millions of galaxies.  The world is a beautiful, ginormous place, and we are insignificant in comparison. Be still, and marvel at His creation.

Gorgeous color in the Milky Way and good beta on the photo This LIFE is really Awesome and frightening to think about :P

Nebulae. This is how a star is born, quite literally.

Remix Nebula - cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other gases that attract matter and materials to clump. These so called clumps form stars, planets, and other planetary systems. Nebulae are where the stars are formed!

L'universo ci aiuta sempre a lottare per i nostri sogni, per quanto sciocchi  possano sembrare. Perchè sono nostri, e soltanto noi sappiamo quanto ci costa sognarli.  Paulo Coelho (Sulla Sponda del Fiume Piedra)

aka NGC 5194 the Whirlpool aka NGC 5195 (left) The Whirlpool Galaxy is a grand-design spiral galaxy, interacting with NGC a dwarf galaxy. Both galaxies are located 23 ± 4 million light-years away in Canes Venatici.

A team of astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope found an unambiguous link between the presence of supermassive black holes that power high-speed, radio-signal-emitting jets and the merger history of their host galaxies. Almost all galaxies with the jets were found to be merging with another galaxy, or to have done so recently
