A large new collection of unique space photos taken at wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye and blocked by Earth's atmosphere has been released as a New Year's gift to the people of Earth by NASA.

The photographs have been released by the US space agency in collaboration with Penn State University.

The images have been captured by Swift observatory's Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope that studies ultraviolet light, much of which is blocked by the atmosphere surrounding Earth.
