NGC 7318 (also known as UGC 12099/UGC 12100 or HCG 92d/b) are a pair of collidinggalaxies about 300 million light-years away in the Constellation Pegasus. They are members of the famous Stephan’s Quintet.
NGC 7318B has two optical arms emanating from the eastern part of the main body. Since these arms are similar morphologically to the tidal tails of merging galaxies such as NGC 4038/9, it is considered that NGC 7318B itself is a major merger with a retrograde orbit. In order to study the emission-line activity in the tidal arms of NGC 7318B, scientists took CCD narrow-band (Ha ON and OFF) images and then found a large-scale arc in Ha emission which traces closely the arms.

HD 85512b is a super Earth, one that’s thought to be 3.6 times as massive as our planet. The alien world is found about 35 light-years from us, in the direction of the constellation Vela. Astronomers announced the discovery of HD 85512b in September 2011. The planet’s estimated surface temperature is 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius).
You must be ready to accept the possibility that there is a limitless range of awareness for which we now have no words; that awareness can expand beyond range of your ego, your self, your familiar identity, beyond everything you have learned, beyond your notions of space and time, beyond the differences which usually separate people from each other and from the world around them.

You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes.

NGC 1398 in The Fornax Cluster

This image of the NGC 1398 galaxy was taken with the Dark Energy Camera.
This galaxy lives in the Fornax cluster, roughly 65 million light years from Earth. It is 135,000 light years in diameter, just slightly larger than our own Milky Way galaxy, and contains more than a hundred million stars. Credit: Dark Energy Survey

Lies at low galactic latitude, only 10.5 degrees from the Galactic Equator, or the Milky Way’s disc plane. Therefore, it is heavily obscured by interstellar matter of the Milky Way.
If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they’d live a lot differently.
