Light-years from Earth galaxies are smashing together.
In the constellation of Pisces, 100 million light-years from Earth, two Galaxies are smashing together in a dramatic demonstration of our far future: when the Milky Way collides with the Andromeda Galaxy. This image of NGC 520 was taken with the Gemini North telescope on the evening of July 13-14, 2005. It's possible to see dark dust lanes and a long trail of stars thrown out by the cosmic collision.
Cassini captured this image of Titan's bright side during its recent flyby on August 21, 2005. The photograph was taken when Cassini was 213,000 kilometers (132,000 miles) from Titan.
This picture is a natural image, which shows the thick smoggy atmosphere that normally blocks views of the moon's surface.
