NGC 3521 is a flocculent spiral galaxy located 26 million light-years away from Earth

Spiral Galaxy NGC 5068 thumbnail
24-Jul-2021
NGC 5068 is a seldom photographed face-on galaxy sporting a bright central bar with diffuse spiral arms containing areas of pink hydrogen nebulosity and star-forming regions.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 5084 thumbnail
12-Jun-2021
Categorised as a supermassive disk galaxy, at a distance of 80 million light years and 200,000 light years across, NGC 5084 is one of the largest galaxies in the Virgo Supercluster. Seen edge on, the warped disk is a result of stealing material from nearby satellite galaxies.

Cosmic Bubble NGC 6781 thumbnail
16-Feb-2021
Stars such as our Sun do not contain enough mass to finish their lives in the glorious explosions known as supernovae. However, they are still able to salute their imminent demise into dense, Earth-sized embers called white dwarfs by first expelling colourful shells of gas known as planetary nebulae.

Red Spider Nebula thumbnail

The Red Spider Nebula (also catalogued as NGC 6537) is a planetary nebula located near the heart of the Milky Way.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 6744 thumbnail
22-Nov-2020
NGC 6744 (Caldwell 101) is a spiral galaxy about 31 million light-years away, tilted towards our line of sight. It is thought to be one of the most Milky Way-like spiral galaxies in our immediate vicinity. It also has at least one distorted companion galaxy similar to the Magellanic Clouds.

Reflection Nebula IC 4601 thumbnail
13-Oct-2020
IC 4601 is a reflection nebula within the larger Blue Horsehead Nebula. Reflection nebulae are actually made up of dust that normally appears dark but can reflecting the light of nearby stars.

Edge On Spiral Galaxy NGC 5170 thumbnail
01-Oct-2020
NGC5710 is a rarely photographed spiral galaxy approximately 96 million light years distant. The core is comprised of old yellow stars, with young blue stars in its spiral arms, obscured by prominent dust lanes.

Saturn Nebula thumbnail
28-Sep-2020
The Saturn Nebula is a tiny but complex planetary nebula, ~4000 light years away in Aquarius. The Saturn Nebula gets its name from its resemblance to the planet Saturn to the observer.

Edge On Spiral Galaxy NGC 3717 thumbnail
01-Sep-2020
NGC 3717 is a large spiral galaxy 60 million light years from Earth. Although 100,000 light years across, seen side-on, the galactic disk appears thin with prominent dust lanes.

Messier 68 thumbnail
04-Jul-2020
M68 is a globular cluster at a distance of about 33,000 light-years away from Earth.

Reflection Nebula NGC 2626 thumbnail
18-Jun-2020
NGC 2626 is a seldom photographed, spectacular reflection nebula in a sea of hydrogen emission clouds.

Starburst Galaxy NGC 1808 thumbnail
05-Jun-2020
NGC 1808 has an unusual, warped shape. Most spiral galaxies are flat disks, but this one has curls of dust and gas at its outer spiral arms.


Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1097 thumbnail

This southern sky barred spiral galaxy shines bright in the southern skies, from about 45 million light-years away.
