APOD: 2014 April 25 - Hubble's Messier 5
Messier 5 ~ A globular star cluster, 100,000 stars or more, bound by gravity and packed into a region around 165 light-years in diameter. It lies only 25,000 light-years away. Roaming the halo of our galaxy, globular star clusters are ancient members of the Milky Way. M5 is one of the oldest, its stars estimated to be nearly 13 billion years old. The beautiful star cluster is a popular target for Earthbound telescopes. (NASA)

NGC 3226 is 50 million light-years away. Several star-studded, gassy loops emanate from NGC 3226. Filaments also run out from it and between a companion galaxy, NGC 3227. These streamers of material suggest that a third galaxy probably existed there until recently.. that is, until NGC 3226 cannibalized it, strewing pieces of the shredded galaxy all over the area.

AMAZING PHOTOS: Great lake on Jupiter's icy moon
Scientists have discovered what appears to be a body of liquid water as vast as the volume of the North American Great Lakes locked inside the icy shell of Jupiter's moon Europa, suggesting a potential new habitat for life and many more such lakes might exist throughout the shallow regions of Europa's shell.
