This image shows the galaxy named SBS 0335-052, which is in a class of galaxies called blue compact dwarfs
SBS 0335-052
SBS 0335-052, a previously known blue compact dwarf is located some 176 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus.

WISE 1828+2650 is located in the constellation Lyra. The blue dots are a mix of stars and galaxies.
Coldest Dwarf
WISE has uncovered the coldest brown dwarf known so far (green dot in very center of this infrared image).

  This artist's conception illustrates what brown dwarfs of different types might look like to a hypothetical interstellar traveler who has flown a spaceship to each one.

Gum 22 and CG4 are both part of an extensive star-forming complex known at the Gum Nebula Region, as shown.
CG 4
Seen here by NASAís WISE, the cloud CG4 might be imagined as a cosmic alligator eating its way across the sky.

  Messier 101 is a grand design spiral galaxy, a disk of hundreds of billions of stars with a small central bulge and prominent arms spiraling out from the center.
M 101
The galaxy, often called the Pinwheel galaxy, was designated object 101 in Charles Messierís catalog of fuzzy things in the sky that are not comets.

The multicolored clouds make up the Elephant's Trunk Nebula.  The bright 'trunk' of the nebula is located near the center of the image.
IC 1396
This image of the Elephantís Trunk Nebula from NASAís WISE shows clouds of dust and gas being pushed and eroded by a massive star.

  The green and yellow multicolored clouds make up the GUM 22 region.
GUM 22
This image from NASAís WISE, highlights several star-forming regions. There are four different HII regions in this one image alone.

This image showcases galaxies of several types, from elegant grand design spirals to more patchy flocculent spirals. Some of the galaxies have roundish centers, while others have elongated central bars.
Galaxy Menagerie
