Check this 10 Stunning Photographs of our universe captured by our orbital and earth telescopes.You will be amazed and your perception about space will change.

1. The Horsehead Nebula

This photo of the Horsehead nebula was captured by NASA’s Hubble Telescope in infrared. It’s located in the constellation Orion about 1,500 light years away from us.

2. The M106 Galaxy

This massive galaxy is not much different than ours. Its long arms spiral outward and at the center there exists a supermassive black hole.

3. Black Hole Outburst in M83

This image was taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory showing the spiral galaxy M83 some 15 million light years from Earth.

6. The Ring Nebula

M57, or the Ring Nebula, is about 2,400 light years from Earth. It is the very bright remains of a now dead star. Even a small telescope can spot it.

7. Whirlpool Galaxy

This galaxy, photographed by Chandra X-ray Telescope, shows this spiral galaxy with one of its neighboring satellite galaxies.

8. The Sombrero Galaxy.

This massive, beautiful galaxy is over 50,000 light years from tip to tip. Where it gets its name is pretty obvious.

9. The Helix Nebula.

This photo, captured by the Spitzer Space Telescope, shows the high concentration of dust at the center, appearing as red, as well as green gas bursting outward. The red and green come from different wavelengths.

10. The Star Cluster Pismus 24

This star cluster, located in the NGC 6457 Nebula 8,100 light years away, sits above a thick layer of gas and dust from its neighboring nebula.
