The nebula, or cluster of gas, is all that remains from a star's explosion.
Rose in Space
Two galaxies interact to create a stunning rose-like shape.
This shot shows about 100,00 out of the 10 million stars in the star cluster known as Omega Centauri.
Particles in Saturn's rings that are visible only in ultraviolet light are revealed after Hubble filtered out other kinds of light.
The Antennae formation was created a hundred million years ago when two galaxies collided and triggered the "birth" of millions of stars.
Located within the Carina Nebula, these pillars of gas and dust hold newborn stars.
Gas released by a dying star zips across space at more than 600,00 miles and hour, creating this butterfly-like formation.
Martian Dust Storm
Pictures of Mars reveal a massive 2001 dust storm engulfing the planet. The storm lasted for more than three months.
