New Horizons is of course not the only way we are receiving awesome photos from Space, there are also rockets, the Internatonal Space Station and huge telescopes. Here are more photos to remind us of the beauty and grandeur of Space.
The very aptly named Tinkerbell Triplet showing the incredibly beautiful and rare merge of three galaxies. Photo taken from ESO Space telescope.
The large Magellanic Cloud – a star nursery.
This image shows stars being born inside the large Magellanic Cloud, one of the closest galaxies to us. In places where skies are very clear two Magellanic Clouds can be seen by the naked eye as smudgy, wispy clusters. Photo taken by large ESO telescope.
The incredibly beautiful Helix Nebula looking exactly like an eye. At the centre of a nebula is a dying star. You can read more about nebulas here.
Thor’s Helmut – another Nebula. So much beauty coming form something as sad as a dying star!
