Solar Eruptions - A Coronal Mass Ejection The swirling inner layers of our sun cause charged particles to generate magnetic fields. As charges accumulate on the surface, magnetic field lines readjust themselves and release huge quantities of matter and electromagnetic radiation into space. This particular Mass Ejection is traveling at over 900 miles per second and has an energy level equivalent to 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT.

The lovely Seven Sisters (a.k.a. the Pleiades star cluster) is the nearest star cluster to Earth and is dominated by very young stars. Sadly I was only able to fit six of them in my frame. https://www.flickr.com/photos/rathijitb/15026567022/in/pool-universetoday/

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has revisited the famous Pillars of Creation, revealing a sharper and wider view of the structures in this visible-light image. Astronomers combined several Hubble exposures to assemble the wider view. The towering pillars are about 5 light-years tall.
