Rare Space Photos

There have been many projects over the past fifty years to collect information and photos of the galaxy around us. Unfortunately, not everyone has been exposed to these awe inspiring visuals.  Here are three of the most impressive and hard to find pictures of the universe.

1. V838 Monocerotis

V838 Moncerotis is a dying star roughly twenty thousand light years from earth. The Hubble Space Telescope took images of it over a five year time span. Those images have been composed into one impressive video you can watch above. Some have likened this imagery to Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.
