Twinkling images of stars captured by NASA telescopes

Here is an image from the Hubble Space Telescope showing the bright, blue-white stars of the open cluster BSDL 2757 penetrating through the rusty-red tones of gas and dust clouds.

This 100 million-year-old globular cluster is part of the Milky Way's satellite galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud, which is also the galaxy's birthplace for billions of stars.

This entire collection, known as NGC 1858, is an open star cluster located in the northwest of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a Milky Way satellite galaxy with an abundance of star-forming regions. The cluster is surrounded by a background scattered with tiny pinpricks of light that occasionally glint.

Situated in the Milky Way's satellite galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud is home to this 100 million-year-old globular cluster, which serves as the cradle for several billion stars.

This ethereal-looking region of star formation that the Hubble Space Telescope has imaged is home to swirls of gas and dust.

This picture taken with the Hubble Space Telescope features the bright globular cluster Terzan 12, which is a large group of stars that are closely packed together.

In this starry picture taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the glittering, glamorous contents of the globular cluster NGC 6652 are visible.
