The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds

Via kqedscience, this is a tour of two of our closest galaxies: the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. They are between 163,000 and 200,000 light-years away and hold a few hundred million stars like our sun. HD full screen.

These images are from astronomers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and Pennsylvania State University, who used NASA’s Swift Ultraviolet/Optical satellite telescope to create the highest resolution, wide field surveys in ultraviolet light.
