Saturn's moon Iapetus. Vast sections of this strange world are dark as coal, while others are as bright as ice

In the Cassini space probe captured this high-resolution glimpse of the bright trailing hemisphere of Saturn's moon Iapetus. This false-color mosaic shows the entire hemisphere of the two-toned moon.

Clouds of Perseus ~ contains over solar masses of gas and dust, but the eye is drawn to red NGC Known as the California Nebula, its characteristic glow of atomic hydrogen gas is fueled by ultraviolet light from luminous blue star Xi Persei.

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn. It is the only moon known to have a dense atmosphere,[10] and the only object in space other than Earth where clear evidence of stable bodies of surface liquid has been found.[11]

Iapetus is the third largest moon of Saturn, with a radius of about 42% that of our moon, and a mass that weighs up to only 2.5%. This is the equatorial ridge that  runs along the center of Cassini Region, the ridge has an average height of 13 km, occasionally going up to 20km, a length of 1,300 km and a width of about 20 km. It was discovered when the Cassini spacecraft imaged Iapetus on December 31, 2004

NGC 3576: Glowing Gas in the Milky Way Date: 28 Oct. 2013. A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions.
