A blue hypergiant, the Pistol Star in the Milky Way galaxy. Although hidden from the human eye behind thick layers of space dust, the Hubble telescope’s infrared camera captured this image solely using the star’s radiated heat. Most of the gas in the surrounding nebula (imaged magenta in infra-red) is thought to have been ejected from the mass of the Pistol Star. (Image credit: NASA)

Endless: This all-sky view of the entire near-infrared sky reveals the distribution of galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The image is derived from the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog, which contains more than 1.5 million galaxies, and the Point Source Catalog, which holds nearly 500 million stars within the Milky Way. The galaxies are color coded for distances obtained by various surveys. The nearest sources are blue, moderately distant sources are green, and red represents the farthest so

Fire rainbows are the rarest of all naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena. For a fire rainbow to occur, cirrus clouds must be 20,000 feet in the air with the precise amount of ice crystals, and the sun must hit the clouds at 58 degrees
