A new Hubble telescope image has helped to decipher the complex interplay of gas and radiation of a star-forming region in the nearby galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. The image graphically illustrates just how these massive stars sculpt their environment by generating powerful winds that alter the shape of the parent gaseous nebula. These processes are also seen in our Milky Way in regions like the Orion Nebula.

The latest update of Sky Guide Astronomy App is equipped with three new impressive features that include cinematic tours, high definition zoom, and exclusive audiovisual tour of the galaxy. An annual subscription is needed to access the new updates but users can try it for free.

According to 9 to 5 Mac, Sky Guide’s latest update has added new features that will allow users to get to know and see the galaxy in 50x high definition zoom, 50x larger catalogs, and the audiovisual series. In addition, users also use it to spot upcoming comets from the space laboratory Tiangong-2 and Earth.

Based on Sky Guide Astronomy App page in the Apple store, the new version, 6.2, is called SUPERMASSIVE. It took their lab more two years to complete the update and now it's finally available for everyone to download. As mentioned, the app features a high definition zoom that allows users to see galaxies, clusters, nebulae, and even planets in great detail.

Its 50x larger catalogs, on the other hand, allows users to discover all 114 million stars while its cinematic tours give viewers incredible tours with an audiovisual feature of the cosmos.
