20 Astronomical Images That Are Mind Blowing

Rare Colors Of Aurora

This is one of the lesser seen spectrums of the Aurora which makes this photograph doubly rare and special. The natural transformation of yellow into red is something everyone needs to see in person at some point in their life.

Comet Lovejoy

This beautiful image showcases the movement of Comet Lovejoy and the comet dust it leaves behind.

Herschel 36

This image was captured in the constellation of Sagittarius nearly 5,000 light years away. It is the Herschel 36, one of the rare star-forming nebulas that can be seen by the naked eye in perfect conditions by people living in min-northern latitudes.


Although this Nebula has a nearly robotic name – IC443, its majestic visual is nothing short of breath-taking, defining everything beautiful that can be found in nature. It is a galactic supernova remnant from a star that could have exploded over 30,000 years ago and is found in the Gemini constellation.
