Year in Pictures: 2013 Space

Spotlight on a halo

Which pictures struck a cosmic chord in 2013? Check out the year's top images from the outer-space beat. 

A halo appears around the moon in Kvæfjord, Troms, Norway, on Feb. 19, 2013. Such halos occur when moonlight is refracted by ice crystals in the atmosphere.

Horsehead of a different color

The Horsehead Nebula takes on an eerie glow in an infrared image from the Hubble Space Telescope. This picture, released on April 21, marked the 23rd anniversary of the famous observatory's launch in 1990 aboard the space shuttle Discovery.

Wicked witch of Orion

A witch appears to be screaming out into space in this image from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, released Oct. 31. The infrared portrait shows the Witch Head nebula, named after its resemblance to the profile of a wicked witch. (Can't see the resemblance? Her nose points to the right, halfway up the frame.) Astronomers say the billowy clouds of the nebula are being lit up by massive stars.

Spacewalk in Utah

Members of the Mars Desert Research Station's Crew 125 EuroMoonMars B mission return after collecting geological samples in the Utah desert on March 2.

One giant leap

An enlarged portion of this image shows an unfortunate frog flying in the air as NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer, or LADEE, blasted off from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Sept. 6. LADEE went into lunar orbit to study the moon's thin atmosphere and surface dust. 

The big picture from Saturn

Saturn is surrounded by planets and moons in a mosaic assembled from images captured by NASA's Cassini probe on July 19. The backlit picture of the ringed planet includes Earth's tiny speck and the even tinier speck representing our moon. But that's not all: A full-resolution image also reveals Mars and Venus, as well as seven of Saturn's moons. 

Beauty is in the eye of a hurricane
The spinning vortex of Saturn's north polar storm resembles a deep red rose in this color-coded infrared image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. Measurements have sized the eye at a staggering 1,250 miles across. This image was taken from a distance of 261,000 miles on Nov. 27, 2012, and distributed by NASA on April 29, 2013.

Usually, the European Space Agency sends astronauts to outer space, but these astronauts, in an image released Oct. 4, are in a cave on the island of Sardinia, Italy. Six astronauts from around the world spent six days underground to learn how to work together under extreme conditions.

Galactic butterfly
A close-up of the dying star NGC 6302 nebula is seen in this image released by NASA on June 7. The picture was produced from data acquired by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 in 2009. With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C (450,032 degrees F), the dying central star of this particular planetary nebula has become exceptionally hot, shining brightly in ultraviolet light but hidden from direct view by a dense torus of dust.

Supermoon rising
The moon rises over the Greek temple of Poseidon as tourists enjoy the sunset at Cape Sounion on June 22. The "supermoon" is so named because it's the year's biggest, brightest full moon.

Because of the process by which the pictures were taken, the rover's robotic arm is not visible in the mosaic.

Evil Eye

'Comet of the century'

Astrophotographer Damian Peach snapped this picture of Comet ISON on Nov. 15. The comet, formally known as C/2012 S1, was discovered a little more than a year ago. Even then, astronomers recognized that it had the potential to become the "comet of the century," owing to the fact that it was due to come well within a million miles (1.6 million kilometers) of the sun. 

Cosmic caterpillar
This light-year-long knot of interstellar gas and dust, shown in a picture from the Hubble Space Telescope on Aug. 29, resembles a caterpillar on its way to a feast. But the meat of the story is not just what this cosmic caterpillar eats for lunch, but also what's eating it. Harsh winds from extremely bright stars in the Cygnus OB2 association are blasting ultraviolet radiation at this "wanna-be" star and sculpting the gas and dust into its long shape.

Spacewalker at work

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy takes part in a spacewalk to replace a leaky pump controller box on the International Space Station's far port truss on May 11. The repair job was successful, enabling the station to make full use of its power-generating system.

Strange streak

The trail of a meteor is seen over Chelyabinsk, Russia, on Feb. 15. The meteor streaked across the sky and blew up, releasing as much energy as an atomic bomb and setting off a shock wave. More than 1,600 people were injured, many of them by flying glass from broken windows.

Loops of power

Magnetic loops rise from the sun's surface, as seen in an image captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Such loops lie at the heart of eruptions on the sun known as coronal mass ejections, or CMEs. The image was captured on July 19, 2012, and released to the public on Feb. 20, 2013.

Stars in the cloud

This glittering picture shows X-ray emissions from young sunlike stars in the "wing" of the Small Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy associated with the larger Milky Way. The Small Magellanic Cloud lies about 180,000 light-years from Earth. In this April 4 picture, readings from the Chandra X-ray Observatory are shown in purple; visible light seen by the Hubble Space Telescope is in red, green and blue; and infrared readings from the Spitzer Space Telescope are indicated in red.

One small step for China

China's six-wheeled lunar rover Yutu, or "Jade Rabbit," explores the surface of the moon on Dec. 15 in this image taken by the camera on the Chang'e 3 probe after China successfully carried out the world's first soft landing of a space probe on the moon in nearly four decades. Hours later, video footage showed the probe's rover rolling onto the lunar surface. The achievement marked the next stage in an ambitious space program that aims to eventually put a Chinese astronaut on the moon.

Blazing sun

This full-disk view of the sun was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on April 11, during the strongest solar flare yet seen in 2013. The colors reflect the intensity of emissions in extreme ultraviolet wavelengths.

Strokes in the Sahara

Geological formations take on an alien look in a picture of the southern Sahara in Mauritania, taken on March 19 from the International Space Station and shared via social media on April 24. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield calls the scene "effortless natural art."
