About 5 billion years from now, Andromeda and the Milky Way will have
completely combined to form a single, football-shaped elliptical galaxy.

The disk of our Milky Way Galaxy is home to hot nebulae, cold dust, and billions of stars. This disk can be seen from a dark location on Earth as a band of diffuse light across the sky. The Galactic Center is visible as the thickest part of the disk. Photo Credit: Serge Brunier

Similar to Earth in size and mass, the planet Venus has an atmosphere composed mainly of carbon dioxide. The planet´ closer proximity to the sun, combined with the thick cloud cover that traps heat, result in an average surface temperature of about 462 degrees C (864 F). This visible light picture of Venus was taken by the Galileo spacecraft. Image Credit: NASA/JPL.

Red and near infrared wavelengths from the dust disk surrounding the star HR 4796A (masked in false-color image to make fainter disk visible) suggest the presence of complex organic molecules. The inner "hole" of the ring-shaped disk is big enough to fit our entire solar system and may have been swept clean of dust by orbiting planets. (Image: John Debes)

BP Piscium (center) is located in the constellation Pisces. Green and red jets of gas can be seen shooting from the star in this image, which was obtained using the 3-meter telescope at the University of California's Lick Observatory. Credit: UCLA

Dark molecular clouds within the Carina Nebula are knots of gas and dust so thick they have become opaque. In comparison, however, these clouds are typically much less dense than Earth's atmosphere. Pictured above is part of the most detailed image of the Carina Nebula ever taken, a part where dark molecular clouds are particularly prominent. The entire Carina Nebula spans over 300 light years and lies about 7,500 light-years away in the constellation of Carina. NGC 3372, known as the Great Nebula in Carina, is home to massive stars and changing nebula. Eta Carinae, the most energetic star in the nebula, was one of the brightest stars in the sky in the 1830s, but then faded dramatically Credit: NASA, ESA, N. Smith (U. California, Berkeley) et al., and The Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)
