The Sloth Nebula

These are simply astounding photos. I love stuff like this, it makes me feel very small, insignificant in the greater scheme of things and very, very humble.

When our rulers see this, I'm sure they'll say something along the lines of, 'Wow, those are beautiful! One day, we'll get to exploit and destroy them!'

We can see other galaxies, stars, some planets with Hubble. Yet not one clear photo of a UFO...

The pillar is said to be 3 light years long. I did the math and the distances comes out to be 17,597,028,000,000 miles. Of course this isnt exact but you should have a better idea of how enormous this cloud is.

Maybe you will like this video that I made some time ago, using the music of Beethoven. (better watch in full screen and hd)

That one is closed because it's a duplicate though I like the way the OP showed some of the pictures without going to the link.

This thread was first, so even though the OP is not as good, it's the one that stays open.

If you read the thread I already acknowledged that thread in mine
it was started about 20 hours later and this op was kind enough to post a link to it.

Are these artist representations or actual pictures through x-ray etc lens?

For a moment I thought these were paintings. The universe is truly one magnificent place. A star for you sir.

Those are actual photos, that's the whole gobsmacking point of it all. The colours are artificial in the sense that the red / green / blue were assigned to b&w images taken through specific narrowband filters. But the objects and all the intricacy in these images are real.

I don't think any artist could achieve this beauty and detail. This is the work of nature.

"when i got my telescope(real telescope), only color i saw was bright brown, which was mars. The rest of the space, 95% of the time it was grey and soft white, and the obvious "black". "


hahah how funny, when i got mine as a kid i thought same thing, cant wait to see awesome color, all i saw was a bright white moon, specs of other white dots, and black, LOTS OF BLACK lol

What kind of dumbass god would place intelligent lifeforms within certain galaxies and then set up laws of nature that ensured these galaxies were hurtling away from each other at speeds that could never be overcome, thus guaranteeing his favoured created lifeforms never got to meet each other?

Just because YOUR eyes can't see it doesn't mean the colour is not there

Maybe it's just me but if the shots of galaxies so far away look so clear why aren't we seeing pictures of our local planets that are as clear as if they were shot on site with a Nikon camera instead of looking like a computer generated graphic?
