Sky gazers see the red side of the moon
CNN:Sky gazers were treated to a view of the red side of the moon overnight as refracted sunlight during a total lunar eclipse produced a reddish hue known as a ‘blood moon’

Spiral Galaxy NGC 1084
This new Hubble image displays an almost face-on view of the galaxy NGC 1084, a spiral galaxy with no bar-shaped structure of stars at its center. Spiral galaxies lacking a central bar make up about half of all such galaxies. Astronomers have observed five supernova explosions which took place in NGC 1084 over the past half century. The supernova remnants bear names reflecting the year in which they took place: 1963P, 1996an, 1998dl, 2009H and 2012ec.Credit: NASA/Hubble/Tom Chao/Space.com

Caloris in Color
An enhanced-color view of Mercury, assembled from images taken at various wavelengths by the cameras on board the MESSENGER spacecraft. The circular, orange area near the center-top of the disc is Caloris Basin. Apollodorus and Pantheon Fossae can be seen at the center-left of the basin.
