I can only hope that one day, when we explore the oceans of the solar system (e.g. Europa, Ceres, Enceladus, etc.) we stumble across something bizarre like siphonophores.
Very cool.

Planetary Nebula
These are glowing gases which are emissions from dying red giants. When the red giant dies, it just keeps expanding and dissipates into these beautiful space clouds. Typically, there’s a little white dot in the middle and this is usually a white dwarf, the leftover core of the star. 
When viewing these beauties though x-ray filters, they can be quite astounding
