Not much to say about these. It’s just 10 Amazing Space Images.


10) The Andromeda Galaxy:

This galaxy contains an estimated 200 – 400 stars, which is weird to see. It’s just weird to see that much light in one image.

9) Whirlpool Galaxy/ Messier51:

This was actually the first ever galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy, so it made history!

8) NGC 3603:

A cluster of stars surrounded by a massive cloud of gas and plasma. This really is incredibly stunning, let’s be honest.

7) Just An Old Classic:

We’re all familiar with this one but I really had to include it.


6) Eskimo Nebula:

5) Sombrero Galaxy:

28 million light years from earth. 30% the size of the Milky Way. Apparently the galaxy is unusually bright, which is weird considering it’s surrounding a huge black hole.

4) Butterfly Nebula(NGC 6302):

Most Complex planetary nebulae ever discovered. No points for guessing how it gained it nickname.

3) Kepler’s Supernova:

The remains of a supernova that occurred in 1604. It was the last supernova visible to the human eye from Earth. It’s incredible to think we can see the remnant of something that disappeared so many centuries ago.

2) Hoag’s Object:

With it’s unusual structure, everyone loves this ring galaxy. It was named after it’s discoverer,¬†Arthur Hoag, who wasn’t quite sure what it was. This type of galaxy is incredibly rare so get a good look before it’s killed off by a black hole.

1) Earth: 

As the only planet known to host life, this is arguable the most interesting thing in all of space. And makes for some amazing space images too!
