A new SPHERE / VLT image of Hygiea, which may be the Solar System’s smallest solar system still. As a matter of the main asteroid belt, Hygiea immediately satisfies three of the four requirements to be classified as a dwarf planet: it revolves around the Sun, it is not a moon and, unlike a planet, it has not cleared the planet. neighborhood around its orbit. The final requirement is to have enough mass that its own gravity pulls it into a relatively spherical shape. This is what VLT observations now reveal about Hygiea.

The planets around a solar-mass stars could grow until they started accreting gas and becoming giant planets like Jupiter, for several million years.

These negative images of the 2015 BZ509, which are circular in yellow, show the first known interstellar object to become a permanent part of our solar system. The exo-asteroid was probably derived from our solar system from another star system 4.5 billion years ago. It is then fixed in a retrograde orbit around Jupiter.
A close look at the matrix of a matrix in a meteorite that landed in Sudan in 2008. It is considered the first evidence of a proto-planet that helped shape the terrestrial planets in our solar system.
2004 EW95 is the first carbon-rich asteroid that has been confirmed to exist on the Kuiper Belt and is a relic of the primordial solar system.

The NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope celebrated its 28th anniversary in space with its stunning and colorful image of the Lagoon Nebula 4,000 light-years from Earth. While the entire nebula is 55 light-years in total, this image shows only a fraction of about four light-years.
This is a more star-studded view of the Lagoon Nebula, using Hubble’s infrared capabilities. The reason you can see more stars is because infrared is able to cut through dust and gas clouds to show the abundance of both young stars within the nebula, as well as more distant stars in the background.
The Rosette Nebula is 5,000 light-years from Earth. The unique nebula, which some claims looks like a skull, has a hole in the middle that creates the illusion of its pink shape.

Venus, bottom, and Jupiter shine brightly above Matthews, North Carolina, on Monday, June 29. The apparent close encounter, called a conjunction, has been giving a dazzling display in the summer sky. Although the two planets appear to be close together, in reality they are millions of miles apart.
Jupiter’s icy moon Europa may be the best place in the solar system to look for extraterrestrial life, according to NASA. The moon is about the size of Earth’s moon, and there is evidence it has an ocean beneath its frozen crust that may hold twice as much water as Earth. NASA’s 2016 budget includes a request for $30 million to plan a mission to investigate Europa. The image above was taken by the Galileo spacecraft on November 25, 1999. It’s a 12-frame mosaic and is considered the the best image yet of the side of Europa that faces Jupiter.
This nebula, or cloud of gas and dust, is called RCW 34 or Gum 19. The brightest areas you can see are where the gas is being heated by young stars. Eventually the gas burst outward like champagne after a bottle is uncorked. Scientists call this champagne flow. This new image of the nebula was captured by the European Space Organization’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. RCW 34 is in the constellation Vela in the southern sky. The name means “sails of a ship” in Latin.
The Hubble Space Telescope captured images of Jupiter’s three great moons — Io, Callisto, and Europa — passing by at once.
Using powerful optics, astronomers have found a planet-like body, J1407b, with rings 200 times the size of Saturn’s. This is an artist’s depiction of the rings of planet J1407b, which are eclipsing a star.
A patch of stars appears to be missing in this image from the La Silla Observatory in Chile. But the stars are actually still there behind a cloud of gas and dust called Lynds Dark Nebula 483. The cloud is about 700 light years from Earth in the constellation Serpens (The Serpent).
This is the largest Hubble Space Telescope image ever assembled. It’s a portion of the galaxy next door, Andromeda (M31).
NASA has captured a stunning new image of the so-called “Pillars of Creation,” one of the space agency’s most iconic discoveries. The giant columns of cold gas, in a small region of the Eagle Nebula, were popularized by a similar image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1995.
Astronomers using the Hubble Space pieced together this picture that shows a small section of space in the southern-hemisphere constellation Fornax. Within this deep-space image are 10,000 galaxies, going back in time as far as a few hundred million years after the Big Bang.
Planetary nebula Abell 33 appears ring-like in this image, taken using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope. The blue bubble was created when an aging star shed its outer layers and a star in the foreground happened to align with it to create a “diamond engagement ring” effect.
This Hubble image looks a floating marble or a maybe a giant, disembodied eye. But it’s actually a nebula with a giant star at its center. Scientists think the star used to be 20 times more massive than our sun, but it’s dying and is destined to go supernova.
