It’s difficult to imagine planet-sized spitballs hurtling through space, but new research shows black holes cause exactly this phenomenon.
tA festive glowing red nebula was spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope. The nebulas glow could be attributed to heated hydrogen according to experts.
Hubble captured two stunning nebulae within a small satellite galaxy about 200,000 light years away.
Scientists have discovered a new cluster of stars that could provide more insights on how the Milky Way galaxy had evolved.
Astronomers have spotted a record-breaking satellite orbiting the Milky Way. While record-breaking might imply that the satellite was bright and huge, the recently discovered satellite was rather the faintest satellite galaxy yet found.
NASA's Stratospheric Observation for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) will soon begin its 2017 observing campaign.

Our Milky Way is actually on par with the Andromeda Galaxy.
Gaia was able to pin down 20 times the number of stars captured by ESA's Hipparcos satellite.
Astronomers have created a detailed computer simulation of the Milky Way galaxy’s formation, which solved the mystery involving the missing group of smaller galaxies that should have been present.
Astronomers discover two distinct types of star in the stellay cluster Terzan 5 that have an age-gap about 7 billion years.
At the center of the Milky Way galaxy is a dormant, supermassive black hole. But a new study suggests that the galaxy's core had once been ablaze six million years ago.
Young stars are mysteriously disappearing from the Milky Way, according to recent reports. While there are an abundance of old stars, young stars called Cepheid Variable stars found at the center of the Milky Way galaxy have gone missing.
