An image taken by astronauts aboard the ISS of a large plume of smoke, steam and ash erupting from the Sarychev volcano on the Kuril Islands, Russia. It is thought that the eruption has caused a hole to form in the cloud layer above it. June 12, 2009. Image by @nasa

This image shows Arp 273. A swath of blue, jewel-like points across the top is the combined light from clusters of bright and hot young stars. Their distorted appearance is due to gravitational tides as the pair engage in close encounters. The release of this stunning vista celebrates the 21st anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope in orbit.
