SPACE-MILKY WAY- MAGELLANIC CLOUD

This image obtained from NASA on January 24, 2013 shows nearly 200, 000 light-years from Earth, the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, as it floats in space, around our galaxy. As the Milky Way‚Äôs gravity gently tugs on its neighbour‚Äôs gas clouds, they collapse to form new stars. In turn, these light up the gas clouds in a kaleidoscope of colours, visible in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is ablaze with star-forming regions. From the Tarantula Nebula, the brightest stellar nursery in our cosmic neighborhood, to LHA 120-N 11, part of which is featured in this Hubble image, the small and irregular galaxy is scattered with glowing nebulae, the most noticeable sign that new stars are being born. = RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE – MANDATORY CREDIT ” AFP PHOTO / NASA/ESA/ HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE/” – NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS – DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS =HO/AFP/Getty Images
