Today's theme is stellar bodies. Human spaceflight might be in a state of limbo lately, but we're still getting some breathtaking images from our automated explorers.
Whether far away or close to home, it sure is beautiful out there.
One of the most exciting finds this week was a black hole devouring a star. Let's try to avoid that with our star, shall we?
Here's an image of a really old supernova, showing another possible fate for stars.
The Orion Molecular Cloud creates enough water to fill the Earth's oceans every 24 minutes.
Closer to home, new analysis of data from NASA's Cassini probe suggests that Saturn's moon, Phoebe, would have been a planet, but massive Saturn trapped it.
Next month, Venus will transit across the sun as observed from Earth. If you miss it, you'll have to catch it next time in 2117.
Here's an incredible filtered image of our sun by Alan Friedman.
Finally, here's a weird and wonderful shot of last week's "supermoon" sinking below our atmosphere, captured by astronaut André Kuipers from space.
