This image of a pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273 was released to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.    The distorted shape of the larger of the two galaxies shows signs of tidal interactions with the smaller of the two. It is thought that the smaller galaxy has actually passed through the larger one.

"This Hubble image is one of several, including the Ultra Deep Field, which peer into seemingly empty space, leaving the camera shutter open for hours, and reveal that billions of galaxies made up of billions of stars fill our skies in every direction as far as we can possibly see, separated by almost unimaginable distance and time, yet still reachable, visible as an image of their long-ago selves."

More than 12 billion years of cosmic history are shown in this unprecedented, panoramic, full-color view of thousands of galaxies in various stages of assembly.

Monday, Dec. 29, 2014: Astronomer Adam Block, with guest astronomer Bob Taylor, obtained this image of galaxy NGC 1398 in October 2014. This barred spiral galaxy NGC 1398 lies 65 million light-years away in the constellation of Fornax, and is part and makes up part of the Fornax cluster of galaxies. %u2014 Tom Chao

Milky Way.  "Every star we see in the sky is part of the Milky Way, but a brighter center exists some 26,000 light-years away. The Milky Way is about 100,000 light-years in diameter and contains 200 to 400 billion stars."

This Calar Alto image offers one of the best snapshots ever obtained of the spiral galaxy NGC 7331, the brightest of the Pegasus group of galaxies.

This Calar Alto image offers one of the best snapshots ever obtained of the spiral galaxy NGC 7331 in the Pegasus stellar system. It was produced with the camera LAICA attached to the m telescope of Calar Alto Observatory.

This long-exposure Hubble Space Telescope image of massive galaxy cluster Abell 2744 is the deepest ever. The immense gravity in Abell 2744 acts as a gravitational lens to warp space and brighten and magnify images of nearly distant background galaxies.

Friday, Jan. 31, 2014: The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope captured this image of the Andromeda galaxy (Messier 31), a giant spiral galaxy. It lies only two million light years away from our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Andromeda and the Milky Way match each other roughly in size, and both exceed the dimensions of the few dozens of irregular and dwarf galaxies than make up the rest of our local group of galaxies.�014 Tom Chao

30 Doradus in Ultraviolet, Visible, and Red Light ~  (also known as the Tarantula Nebula or NGC 2070) Originally thought to be a star, but in 1751 Nicolas Louis de Lacaille recognized it as a nebula. Its luminosity is so great that if it were as close to Earth as the Orion Nebula, it would cast shadows. It is the most active starburst region in the Local Group of galaxies. The closest supernova observed since the invention of the telescope, Supernova 1987A, occurred in the outskirts of NGC…
