Some of the images captured from space are truly breathtaking and mind boggling. We’ve collected some of the most incredible pictured for you to feast your eyes on from the wondrous spectacles across the galaxy. Here are photos from space you won’t believe are real.
Believe it or not, this is what Jupiter’s storms actually look like when they’re in motion. Crazy.
Check out this extreme close up shot of a sunspot, taken by New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Big Bear Solar Observatory. To be honest, it looks more like the eye of Sauron from Lord Of The Rings.
Take a peek at the eskimo nebula, discovered by British astronomer William Herschel in 1787. Those light streaks on the outer layer surrounding the star stretch out for a light year in every direction. What!?
Take a look at the Milky Way as you’ve never seen it before. Hi-tech infra-red cameras allowed photographers to capture parts of the spectrum that were invisible in the past.
You probably won’t believe us, but these are “intersecting swirling trails” on the sand dunes of Mars. This looks more like a sea bed at the bottom of the ocean.
NASA captured this bizarre image from Mars’ surface back in 2008. Is it space Sasquatch? We really kind of hope so.
What you’re seeing here is the ‘The Pillars of Creation’, one of the most famous photos captured by the Hubble Telescope. It shows the Eagle Nebula as it actually creates new stars in the universe.
Incredible and bizarre imagery isn’t just reserved to every other planet in the universe. There’s plenty happening on earth, too. This is an image of the Tanezrouft Basin in the Sahara Desert, viewed from space. An incredibly desolate area, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little terrified by the image.
This is the Engraved Hourglass Nebula. The eye image was t was created by a sunlike star dying over the course of a thousands of years. Looks like the sun Sauron has an accomplice…
No, you’re not looking at The Death Star. That’s Saturn’s moon Mimas, but its enormous Herschel crater certainly makes it look like Darth Vader’s favourite hangout.
