Cosmic Hearts

I hope you all had a happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
Here are some pictures of cosmic hearts:

Heart-shaped crater on MarsA heart-shaped crater on Mars captured by the Mars Orbiter Camera onboard the Mars Global Surveyor.

Heart NebulaA heart-shaped Nebula, called W5, located 6000 light years away in the constellation of Cassiopeia. The image was taken by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE).

Galactic collision heartTwo galaxies colliding to form a heart. They are called the Antennae Galaxies and are located 45 million light years away. The picture was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

PS: I didn’t have time to write a stargazing calendar yesterday, but don’t worry! You didn’t miss much. This month is a rather uneventful time when it comes to major astronomical events. Nevertheless, I will continue with the weekly series next Monday.
