The star Mira, with its 13-light-year-long tail, zips through the galaxy at 291,000 miles per hour! This image was made from several Galaxy Evolution Explorer images put together into a mosaic.

A real shooting star! Mira (MY-rah) is a star that scientists have studied for 400 years. But NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explvery surprising image of Mira. It showed for the first time that Mira has a long tail of dust and light-years long!

Super Star Cluster #Westerlund2! This cluster is so massive that it is expected to eventually evolve into a globular cluster.  It hosts a dozen O-class hypergiant stars, each one with a luminosity 30,000 - 1,000,000 times greater than that of our Sun.

M45: The Pleiades Star Cluster . Explanation: Perhaps the most famous star cluster on the sky, the Pleiades can be seen without binoculars from even the depths of a light-polluted city. Also known as the Seven Sisters and M45, the Pleiades is one of the brightest and closest open clusters. The Pleiades contains over 3000 stars, is about 400 light years away, and only 13 light years across. Credit & Copyright: Robert Gendler

The Pleiades Star Cluster, Jan. The Pleiades is one of the brightest and closest open clusters. The Pleiades contains over 3000 stars, is about 400 light-years away, and only 13 light-years across.

The Pleiades star cluster (M45) is a group of 800 stars formed about 100 million years ago. The cluster is located 410 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Taurus.

The Pleiades star cluster is a group of 800 stars. The cluster is located 410 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Taurus. This particular star cluster also known as the Seven Sisters is fairly visible next to the Orion constellation.

Hodge 301 Hodge 301 is a star cluster located in the Tarantula Nebula about 168,000 light years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud Galaxy. The Tarantula Nebula is a star forming region, fueled by the star clusters hidden inside.

Space image: beautiful orange and red Star cluster Pismis 24. Part of the nebula NGC 6357 is ionised by the youngest (bluest) heavy stars. High quality digital painting with carefully enhanced colors, more vibrant and vivid than in the original Hubble photo. Looks amazing as large metal or acrylic art print, poster or canvas. Bring the fascination of the universe in your home or office! Image credit for the original picture: NASA, ESA

Ghostly Reflections in the Pleiades. The Hubble Space Telescope has caught the eerie, wispy tendrils of a dark interstellar cloud being destroyed by the passage of one of the brightest stars in the Pleiades star cluster. Like a flashlight beam shining off the wall of a cave, the star is reflecting light off the surface of pitch black clouds of cold gas laced with dust. These are called reflection nebulae.

The star cluster Cygnus OB2 contains more than 60 O-type stars and about a thousand B-type stars. Deep observations with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have been used to detect the X-ray emission from the hot outer atmospheres, or coronas, of young stars.

A Nearby Stellar Cradle

A Nearby Stellar Cradle The Milky Way and other galaxies in the universe harbor many young star clusters and associations that each contain hundreds to thousands of hot, massive, young stars known as O and B stars
