Astronomers set a new galaxy distance record! This is a Hubble Space Telescope image of the farthest spectroscopically confirmed galaxy observed to date (inset). It was identified in this Hubble image of a field of galaxies in the CANDELS survey (Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey). NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope also observed the unique galaxy. The W. M. Keck Observatory was used to obtain a spectroscopic redshift (z=7.7), extending the previous redshift record. Measurements of the stretching of light, or redshift, give the most reliable distances to other galaxies. This source is thus currently the most distant confirmed galaxy known, and it appears to also be one of the brightest and most massive sources at that time. The galaxy existed over 13 billion years ago. The near-infrared light image of the galaxy (inset) has been colored blue as suggestive of its young, and hence very blue, stars. The CANDELS field is a combination of visible-light and near-infrared exposures.

yourdailyuniverse Carina Nebula Panorama from Hubble.

In one of the brightest parts of Milky Way lies a nebula where some of the oddest things occur. NGC 3372, known as the Great Nebula in Carina, is home to massive stars and changing nebula. Eta Carinae, the most energetic star in the nebula, was one of the brightest stars in the sky in the 1830s, but then faded dramatically. The Keyhole Nebula, visible left the center, houses several of the most massive stars known and has also changed its appearance. The entire Carina Nebula spans over 300 light years and lies about 7,500 light-years away in the constellation of Carina. Pictured above is the most detailed image of the Carina Nebula ever taken. The controlled color image is a composite of 48 high-resolution frames taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and released to honor its 17th anniversary. Wide-field annotated and zoomable image versions are also available.

astrophysics_ A nebulae, like Messier 78 shown above, are known as a reflection nebulae. Reflection nebulae are clouds of gas and dust that reflect the light of nearby stars. Reflection nebulae are also usually sites of past or current star formation. Nearly every reflection nebulae is mostly blue in colour, this is because the scattering is more efficient for blue than other colours. Reflection nebulae and emission nebulae are very similar and sometimes both are simply referred to as diffuse nebulae.

ohstarstuff Astronomers continue to peer toward the beginning of time as observations confirmed the most distant galaxy currently measured. Using the combined data from NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes along with the Keck Observatory, a team of astronomers led by Yale and U. of California found a luminous galaxy that appears to be only 100 million years old. The galaxy is so far away the light we receive left the galaxy over 13 billion years ago, and it is just arriving now. #Regram @nasa #astronomy #hubble #galaxy 3h

yourdailyastronomy This is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful photographs ever taken. Composed of over 800 images, this is the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. In the foreground many prominent galaxies can be seen but throughout the picture there are actually over 10,000 individual galaxies! Also in it, if zoomed in and enhanced is the farthest object ever found from Earth, it is over 13.6 billion light-years away. #nasa #esa #beautiful #art #astronomy #galaxy #universe #multiverse #hubble #hubble25 #telescope #spacetelescope #space #travel 4h
