The Clash of the Antennae Galaxies.

The Antennae Galaxies.
These two galaxies—once normal, spiral galaxies like the Milky Way—have spent the past few hundred million years violently clashing with one another.
This interaction has ripped stars away from their host galaxies, forming a streaming arc between the two.
Clouds of gas are seen in bright pink and red, surrounding the bright flashes of blue star-forming regions—some of which are partially obscured by dark patches of dust.
This gigantic cosmic dance is taking place 65 million light years away, in the Corvus constellation.

Our Beautiful Galaxy.

Our beautiful galaxy, The Milky Way, is just 1 out of over 100 billion galaxies in the universe.
Yet still, if you have a dream, a goal and belief in yourself, then there is nothing in the universe that can stop you.

Juno orbiter’s Breathtaking image of Jupiter.

In October 29, the Juno spacecraft that has been orbiting Jupiter since 2016, swooped above the planet’s North Temperate Belt and snapped what may be its most mesmerizing image of the gas giant’s clouds yet.
The image, taken 4,400 miles above the planet and enhanced by citizen-scientists and artists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran, includes white pop-up clouds and an anticyclonic storm that appears as a white oval.
The stormy image isn’t the only stunner to come from the batch of raw image data from Juno’s sixteenth pass of the planet recently released by NASA.
Late last week Doran and image processing collaborator Brian Swift posted other shots, including one that shows a cloud that looks suspiciously like a dolphin diving through the clouds.

At 2:49 p.m. ET, the eclipse crossed Charleston, S.C., and moved out over the Atlantic, exactly as predicted.
It left behind millions of Americans whose view of the world was briefly altered and, for some, forever changed.
