Hubble image of an expanding halo of light around a distant star, named V838 Monocerotis, about 20,000 years-light from Earth.  This impressive shape is caused by the red supergiant star at the middle of the image.

The sunrise. From this view, much of the solar energy is scattered by the residue from the Philippine's Mt. Pinatubo volcanic eruption in June 1991. The dark band of aerosols extending across the image, through which the sun is visible, consist primarily of sulfuric acid crystals that scatters the incoming sunlight (NASA).
