A galaxy space is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter. By gathering or spreading they make beautiful scenes day by day. As human beings living in the earth we can’t catch clearly those to our sensitive eye range. But the NASA has released the top 10 most amazing space photos of this week.
01. Carina Nebula in infrared
The Carina Nebula is brims with beautiful, multicolored stars and clouds of interstellar dust and gas in this stunning new image from the European Southern Observatory’s VISTA telescope at the Paranal Observatory in Chile. This nebula is one of the largest star-forming regions in the Milky Way, and it lies 7,500 light-years away in the constellation of Carina.
02. Perseids, Mars and the Milky Way
Dozens of Perseid meteors appear to sprint toward the Milky Way over Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Park in this composite taken by astrophotographer Cody Limber. “I backpacked into the dunes to make sure that I was far away from all other lights,” Limber told Space.com. “Although I got incredibly sandy, it was worth it and I managed to capture a ton of meteors throughout the night!” Mars is also visible in this photo, glowing brighter than any other star in the sky.
03. Very Large Telescope Family Portrait
The Milky Way shimmers over six of the eight telescopes that make up the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope array in this fulldome view captured by ESO photographer Petr Horálek at the Paranal Observatory in northern Chile. A yellow laser beams into the sky to create an artificial star, or a “laser guide star,” which helps astronomers correct for atmospheric turbulence or “seeing” when observing the cosmos.
04. Fireball Streaks Over Australia
Skywatchers across Western Australia caught sight of an incredible fireball on Tuesday night (Aug. 28), and many were lucky enough to capture the spectacle on film.
05. Approaching (But Non-Scary) Asteroid 2016 NF23 Captured in New Photo
A decent-size asteroid that’s about to zoom past Earth looks like a tiny, unimposing dot in a newly captured image.
06. Jupiter’s Marbled Atmosphere
A stunning series of photographs captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft highlights the complicated dynamics of Jupiter’s atmosphere.
07. Yellowstone Recover from Wildfires Over 30 Years
Wildfires periodically devastate North American landscapes. In a new time-lapse video, the scorched earth and incremental recovery of Yellowstone National Park are visible via NASA satellite imagery.
08. Children’s Artwork Flying to Space Aboard European Exoplanet Satellite
Europe’s new exoplanet-studying spacecraft just got a lot prettier. Two plaques etched with children’s artwork have been attached to the European Space Agency’s Characterizing Exoplanet Satellite (CHEOPS), ESA ;officials announced Monday (Aug. 27).
09. Space Station Astronauts Squeeze into Tiny Crew Cabin for Fun Photo
The six crewmembers on the International Space Station each have their own phone-booth-size sleeping cabin, but they all jammed into one for a fun photo op
10. Stunning Full Moon Photo from Space
One of the beautiful things about the full moon is that the days before and after are almost as stunning — so if you needed a little reminder to go enjoy yesterday’s full moon, it’s not too late.
