The universe is home to innumerable stars. Here is a look at 10 twinkling images of space captured by NASA.

This stunning artist's concept is of the early formative years of our Milky Way galaxy, circa 12.7 billion years ago. The image shows majestic spiral arms of our galaxy and a sea of globular star clusters.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured this gorgeous image of the star-forming region NGC 3603 and its massive central star cluster.

This sparkly image captured by NASA, is of the central region of the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The star cluster R136 can be seen twinkling with massive stars. 

This captivating image taken by NASA is of the 30 Doradus region of the Large Magellanic Cloud. The image features the largest and the most prolific star-forming region in our galaxy.

Here's a surreal artist's impression of the Arches star cluster inside the hub of the Milky Way Galaxy. The massive and densest cluster is located 25,000 light-years away from Earth.

NASA's Chandra X-ray telescope took this striking image of the young solar-type stares lying outside our Milky Way galaxy. 

This breathtaking image captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows the infant stars embedded in the nebula NGC 346.

This glittery image is of the star cluster NGC 3603 emitting energetic radiation from young hot stars, bursting into colder gas and dust making them glow.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured this dreamy image of the cluster Westerlund 2 and its surroundings, twinkling with stars.

Here's a marvelous image of a pair of colossal stars, WR 25 and Tr16-244, located within the open cluster Trumpler 16.
