Add Image to Favorite List 2005-07-25 NGC 4625 Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX)
Ultraviolet/Visible Camera
872x872x3
This image shows two companion galaxies, NGC 4625 (top) and NGC 4618 (bottom), and their surrounding cocoons of cool hydrogen gas (purple). The huge set of spiral arms on NGC 4625 (blue) was discovered by the ultraviolet eyes of NASA's GALEX.

Ultraviolet/Visible Camera
1569x1600x3
NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer discovered an exceptionally long comet-like tail of material trailing behind Mira -- a star that has been studied thoroughly for about 400 years.

Ultraviolet/Visible Camera
717x478x3
This artist's concept illustrates a star flying through our galaxy at supersonic speeds, leaving a 13-light-year-long trail of glowing material in its wake. The star, named Mira (pronounced my-rah) after the latin word for 'wonderful.'

Add Image to Favorite List 2012-05-16 Helix Nebula Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX)
Ultraviolet/Visible Camera
2920x2920x3
NGC 7293, better known as the Helix nebula, displays its ultraviolet glow courtesy of NASA's GALEX. The Helix is the nearest example of a planetary nebula, which is the eventual fate of a star, like our own Sun, as it approaches the end of its life.
