Together with the giant Saturn hanging in the blackness and protects from the blinding brilliance Cassini Sun, considered the ring probe as clearly as never before, revealing previously unknown faint rings, as well as the atmosphere and the surface of the planet.

2. Planetary Nebula, located at a distance of about 3,000 light years from Earth. This group of pictures shows the unfolding drama that takes place on the last stage of sun-like stars. Elongated clouds envelop bubbles of gas heated to multimillion-degree temperatures that have occurred as a result of high-speed gas winds from dying stars. This photo was taken May 10, 2006.

3. Joint Photo Spitzer Space Telescope and Hubble shows us the chaos occurring as a result of the formation of new young stars that formed at a distance of 1,500 light-years away in a cosmic cloud called "Orion Nebula".

4. Messier 83 - neighboring galaxy, located outside the boundaries of our local group of galaxies. The central bulge has a characteristic yellow color of old stars, while its spiral environment shown scattered blue light and red nodes to form new stars, has a much younger age.
