Gorgeous Hubble Space Telescope image shows turquoise waves

Bright turquoise plumes ripple through the Milky Way’s companion galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud, like waves in the ocean in a spellbinding new view shared by NASA.

The venerable Hubble Space Telescope captured this stunning view of the Tarantula Nebula, which is within the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite dwarf galaxy of the Milky Way located about 163,000 light-years from Earth. The LMC is among the closest galaxies to Earth and is visible to the naked eye as a faint cloud in the Southern Hemisphere sky.
