NASA Hubble & Spitzer – Space Images

During sunrise and sunset there are marvelous visual images as flowing, willowy clouds change formations and take on colors of a wide spectrum.

As fabulous as these images are they do not really compare to the captures by NASA, the Hubble Telescope, and the Spitzer Space Telescope from faraway galaxies, nebulas, and supernovas.

The shear spectacle offered in the deepest reaches of space are, simply stated, incrediby grand in the overall scheme of life and living.

Following are several images courtesy of NASA, Hubble and Spitzer, as well as to Main Street USA, who, after all, fund the missions into space.

NASA to the Extreme – Image Captures

The vast expanse of outer space has held continuous fascination for all manner of people.

The beauty of star clusters, a nebula, a far distant planet discovered and viewed through the exploration of space photography is beyond description.

As well, graphic images from thousands of light years away almost seem unreal.

As one picture is worth 1,000 words, as the saying goes, following are several magnificent captures from NASA.
