The object in the image, G54.1+0.3, is a supernova remnant, the leftovers of a massive star that died a violent death. It's located ~ 20000 ly away from us, in the northern constellation of Sagitta, the arrow.



Set against a dark sky littered with galaxies, this image shows spiral galazy M61 in its full glory — even at its distance of over 50 million ly.



The object in the image elliptical galaxy M105 lies about 30 million ly away in the constellation of Leo. The stars near the M105’s center are moving around a supermassive black hole with an estimated mass of 200 million Suns.

thanks Drone you never disappoint with this thread. I just hope I live long enough to see the James Webb send back several images, many discoveries await us - I hope.

You're welcome lynx29




This spectacular spiral galaxy, known as NGC 1964, resides ~ 70 million ly away in the constellation of Lepus (The Hare).







Citizen Scientists Find New World with NASA Telescope

Located 226 ly away in the constellation Taurus, the planet lies in a stellar system known as K2-288, which contains a pair of dim, cool M-type stars separated by ~ 8.2 billion km - roughly 6 times the distance between Saturn and the Sun. The brighter star is about 1/2 as massive and large as the Sun, while its companion is about 1/3 the Sun's mass and size. The new planet, K2-288Bb, orbits the smaller, dimmer star every 31.3 days.

Galaxy NGC 6902



In the nearby Whirlpool galaxy and its companion galaxy, M51b, two supermassive black holes heat up and devour surrounding material.

I am absolutely going to maybe come and visit. I have anxiety so it may take a while. Space is one of those subjects that makes the hair on my neck stand up. So much mystery, so many unanswered questions, and about our place in this magnificent existence.

Stargazers lounge, where is that? thx
