Nasa stunning pictures to drive away Monday blues NASAHubble Space Telescope International Space Station ISS celestial star moon earth sun

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) keeps posting stunning pictures from outer space. In this picture captured by a crew member on the International Space Station, the full moon is seen as the orbiting outpost was 252 miles above the Indian Ocean about 1,000 kilometer due south of India. Here's a look at some more stunning pictures to drive away your Monday blues:

This is a supernova remnant in a nearby galaxy, the Small Magellanic Cloud. It was produced by a massive star that exploded. X-rays from our Chandra X-Ray Observatory are shown in blue and purple, and have helped astronomers confirm that most of the oxygen in the universe is synthesized in massive stars. The amount of oxygen seen here is enough for thousands of solar systems. This image also contains optical data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the Very Large Telescope in Chile -- seen in red and green. (Photo: NASA/Instagram)

Swaddled in a gossamer cocoon of reflective dust and illuminated, the super star in the center of this image from the @NASAHubble Space Telescope is ten times more massive than the Sun and 200 times larger. The super star is also one of the most luminous with an average intrinsic brightness is 15,000 times greater than the Sun's luminosity. (Photo: NASA/Instagram)

The sun is approaching its minimum level of activity in its 11-year solar cycle, meaning we won’t be seeing very many active regions like this for quite a while. Active regions on the Sun are spots that have particularly strong magnetic fields. In this visualization — which comes from the extreme ultraviolet wavelength —you can clearly see the numerous magnetic loops of charged particles, rapidly changing their shapes and directions.

This iconic 'Earthrise' photo was taken aboard Apollo 8 by Bill Anders on December 24, 1968. Before humanity ventured to the Moon, our view of our home planet consisted of what we could see from horizon to horizon. It was not until this stunning photo (along with many others) came back to Earth with the three Apollo 8 astronauts in December 1968 that we saw Earth as a vibrant, delicate, blue and white globe framed by the velvety blackness of space. This iconic picture shows Earth peeking out from beyond the lunar surface as the first crewed spacecraft circumnavigated the Moon. (Photo: NASA/Instagram)

This NASAHubble Space Telescope image of a bipolar star-forming region reminds us of a soaring, celestial snow angel. The outstretched “wings” aren’t snow at all, but are actually twin lobes of super-hot gas that glows blue. Additionally, a ring of dust and gas orbits the star like a belt. (Photo: NASA/Instagram)
