From faraway planets, to exploding stars, to twisting, colorful galaxies, NASA's space images often look more like works of art than scientific research.

This week, the Agency has come out with some pretty incredible shots. The elusive Jellyfish Nebula with its dangling 'tentacles,' the Flaming Star Nebula with its massive smoke trails, and a close-up view of one of Saturn's icy moons are all among the most incredible space images this week.

Check out the slideshow below to see some of NASA's best space photos.
