M 104 Sombrero Galaxy in Virgo Cluster-member of the 'local group'-the cluster of galaxies in which our Milky Way is situated.


This image of the coil-shaped Helix Nebula is a composite of images from the Hubble Space Telescope and from the Mosaic Camera on the National Science Foundation's 0.9-meter telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory near Tucson, Ariz.


De Hubble-ruimtetelescoop levert maandelijks prachtige foto's af. Maar wat zijn nu de mooiste meesterwerken die deze telescoop heeft 'geschilderd'? De reda

Hubble Space Telescope: nice picture of the first orbiting telescope.


Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar 2008

Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar 2008 - The Big Picture - Side note - these aren't stars - these are galaxies!! GALAXIES!!!! Does that blow anyone else's minds?! Makes you realize how trivial our problems are. Just look up..


Hubble Space Telescope posted this portrait of dying star Camelopardalis (U Cam for short) as it released a spherical shell of gas. U Cam is becoming increasingly unstable, and every few thousand years the red giant's core fuses and it expels stellar material in these eruptions. Although the star itself is small enough to fit into a single pixel of the photo, its brightness makes it appear much larger than it is.

Sagittarius never looked like this. A two-lobed nebula in the heart of the constellation, it lies some 3,000 light years from Earth and is home to the hottest star ever recorded.

Barred spiral galaxy NGC 6217 - This is the first image of a celestial object taken with the newly repaired Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). The galaxy lies 6 million light-years away in the north circumpolar constellation Ursa Major - Credit: NASA, ESA and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team - via 21Space


Antennae Galaxies reloaded - This new image of the Antennae Galaxies shows obvious signs of chaos. Clouds of gas are seen in bright pink and red, surrounding the bright flashes of blue star-forming regions — some of which are partially obscured by dark patches of dust. The rate of star formation is so high that the Antennae Galaxies are said to be in a state of starburst, a period in which all of the gas within the galaxies is being used to form stars. This cannot last forever and neither…
