Our Favorite Valentines Throughout the Universe

Today is Valentine’s Day. What better way to express that

you love someone than with an intergalactic love gram? Check out some of our

favorites and send them to all of your cosmic companions:

Your love is galactic


The Hubble Space Telescope revolutionized nearly all areas

of astronomical research — and captured some truly lovely

. Here, a pair of intersecting galaxies swirl into the shape of a rose as a

result of gravitational tidal pull. What type of roses are you getting for your

love — red or galactic?

I think you’re n{ice}


IceBridge is the largest airborne survey of Earth’s polar

ice ever flown. It captures 3-D views of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets, ice shelves

and sea ice. This lovely heart-shaped glacier feature was discovered in

northwest Greenland during an IceBridge flight in 2017. Which of your lover’s

features would you say are the coolest?

You’re absolutely



Even though we can’t see them, magnetic fields are all

around us. One of the solar system’s largest magnetospheres belongs to Jupiter.

Right now, our Juno spacecraft is providing scientists with their first

glimpses of this unseen force. Is your attraction to your loved one magnetic?

You’re MARS-velous


This heart-shaped feature on the Martian landscape was

captured by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. It was created by a small impact

crater that blew darker material on the surface away. What impact has your

loved one had on you?

I <3 you


From three billion miles away, Pluto sent a “love note” back

to Earth, via our New Horizons spacecraft. This stunning image of Pluto’s

shows one of the world’s most dominant features, estimated to

be 1,000 miles (1,600 km) across at its widest point. Will you pass this love

note on to someone special in your life?

Light of my life


Our Solar Dynamics Observatory keeps an eye on our closest star

that brings energy to you and your love. The observatory helps us understand

where the Sun’s energy comes from, how the inside of the Sun works, how energy

is stored and released in the Sun’s atmosphere and much more. Who would you say

is your ray of sunshine?

Do any of these cosmic phenomena remind you of someone in

your universe? Download these cards here to

send to all the stars in your sky.

Want something from the Red Planet to match your bouquet of

red roses? Here

is our collection of Martian Valentines.
