 Milky Way and Aurora over Antarctica
It has been one of the better skies of this long night. In parts of Antarctica, not only is it winter, but the Sun can spend weeks below the horizon. At China's Zhongshan Station, people sometimes venture out into the cold to photograph a spectacular night sky. The featured image from one such outing was taken in mid-July, just before the end of this polar night.

Our Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of a dwarf galaxy which lies 60 million light-years away. Even though this galaxy is almost ten times smaller than the Milky Way, it appears to be creating stars at about the same rate. Learn more: #NASABeyond

 Born-again planetary nebula! Beneath the vivid hues of this eye-shaped cloud, named Abell 78, a tale of stellar life and death is unfolding. At the centre of the nebula, a dying star – not unlike our Sun – which shed its outer layers on its way to oblivion has, for a brief period of time, come back to echo its past glory.
