12 Mind-Blowing Photos By NASA 

Massive Eruption Seen on Sun -  The STEREO spacecraft caught this spectacular prominence eruption as it blasted away, stretching almost halfway across the Sun about 500,000 miles. 

Crab Nebula -  William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Ross, observed the nebula in 1844 using a 36-inch telescope and named it the Crab Nebula because of its crab-like drawing. 

Planet Earth -  Using a collection of satellite-based monitors, scientists, and visualizers stitched together months of observations of Earth's surface into a seamless, true-color montage. 

Typhoon Nabi -  This image of Typhoon Nabi moving in the Pacific Ocean and headed toward southern Korea and Japan was captured by Expedition 11 crew members on September 3, 2005. "Nabi" means butterfly in Korean. 

Manam Volcano -  Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea’s Manam Volcano released a thin, faint plume on June 16, 2010, as clouds gathered at the volcano’s summit. Rills of brown rocks interrupted the carpet of green vegetation on the volcano’s slopes, while white clouds partially obscured NASA's satellite view of Manam. 

Auroras in Jupiter’s Atmosphere -  Hubble Space Telescope captures auroras appearing on the poles of Jupiter. The vivid glow known as auroras is created when high-energy particles enter a planet’s atmosphere near its magnetic poles and collide with the gas atoms. 

View of Jupiter’s Moon Io -  Jupiter’s moon Io is the most volcanically active entity in the solar system. Here we can see a red ring around the volcano Pele after dramatic changes in the area around Pillar Patera, another volcanic center. 

A Cosmic Tarantula -  This image, Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera displays the Tarantula Nebula star-forming region in a new light. It shows thousands of never-before-seen young stars previously shrouded in cosmic dust. 

Two Colliding Galaxies -  Two Colliding Galaxies The Antennae galaxies shown in this image are located about 62 million light-years from Earth. They derived their name from the long antenna-like “arms” seen in wide-angle views of the system. 

Earth as a Pale Blue Dot -  This is the last photo taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft before it ended its mission and crashed into Saturn. The blue dot that you can notice is Earth. 

Solar Eclipse Composite Image -  This composite image shows the Sun's atmosphere, the corona (as seen by the SOHO satellite), and a ground-based image of the August 21, 2017, solar eclipse in totality. 

Curiosity's Dusty Selfie' Curiosity's Dusty Selfie -  Since August 2012, Curiosity has been exploring the Gale crater region on Mars. The rover has climbed more than 2,000 feet on Mt. Sharp in Gale Crater, reaching progressively younger rocks indicating how Mars has evolved from a wet, habitable planet to a cold desert environment.
