    Hubble Telescope Reveals Mesmerizing Drifting Jellyfish Galaxy in Latest Capture

    This NASA/ESA photograph of the Hubble Space Telescope shows the serenely drifting jellyfish galaxy JW39. This galaxy, one of many jellyfish galaxies Hubble has observed over the past two years, lies around 900 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. What are the effects of galaxy clusters on the shape and gas content of […]

    Glistening Star Cluster Captured in Hubble’s Glance

    This view from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the globular cluster NGC 6325, which is closely packed.  Glistening Star Cluster is located in the constellation Ophiuchus, approximately 26,000 light-years from Earth. How do astronomers use globular clusters to study the birth of stars? Globular clusters, such as NGC 6325, are tightly bonded groups of […]

    Hubble Sets Out on Mission to Discover an Intermediate-sized Black Hole

    Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have discovered what they believe to be some of the greatest evidence yet for the presence of a rare type of intermediate-sized black hole lurking in the heart of the nearest globular star cluster to Earth, about 6,000 light-years distant. What are the formation, distribution, and rarity of intermediate-mass […]

    Galaxy Cluster that bends light captured by NASA’s Hubble

    In the center of this photograph taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope lies a massive galaxy cluster.  This huge cosmic creature can be detected by looking at the ripples it creates in spacetime. It’s like a sea monster swimming beneath the surface of the ocean. The cluster is so big that it bends the […]

    Hubble captures shadow play on a planet-forming disk!

    Hubble captures “shadow puppets” as scientists observe the young star TW Hydrae with NASA’s iconic space telescope.” Prior Observation of the Shadows: In 2017, scientists reported finding a shadow moving across the surface of the red dwarf star’s encircling gas and dust disk, which has the appearance of a large pancake. The inner disk, which […]

    Astronomers have published stunning photographs of the nearby star-forming area NGC 1333 taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope in honor of the telescope’s 33rd birthday. These images demonstrate the telescope’s extraordinary capabilities. The Hubble 33rd anniversary images offer an incredible view of the cosmic womb where new stars form. The nebula is located in the […]

    Hubble OPAL Program Monitors Jupiter’s storms and Uranus’ atmosphere

    NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has been capturing breathtaking images of the changing weather and seasons on Jupiter and Uranus since its launch in 1990. Although the close-up views provided by other spacecraft, such as Juno and Voyager very impressive, however, Hubble’s sharpness and sensitivity enable it to track complex activities in these largely gaseous outer […]

    Hubble Space Telescope discovers three colliding galaxies!

    Someday, the three galaxies in the constellation Boötes will combine into a single, enormous, brilliant galaxy. The Hubble Space Telescope has captured an incredible new image of galaxies collision course. It is rare for three colliding galaxies to collide simultaneously, but this event is particularly notable for a different reason. All three galaxies which collide […]
