This is an artist's concept of Neptune's tiny moon Hippocamp. Only 20 miles across, it may actually be a broken-off fragment from a much larger neighboring moon, Proteus! Read the full story: https://t.co/OvX2MvjYzD https://t.co/eQMN7gACD5

#HubbleClassic Astronauts captured this photo of Hubble at the end of its 2nd servicing mission, after equipping it with 2 new instruments: the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS). https://t.co/Tik67TheU0 https://t.co/zUPjtTJIK8

#HappyBirthday to Galileo Galilei who was born on this day in 1564! His observations revolutionized the field of astronomy including his discovery of Jupiter's four largest moons. This video shows 3 of the 4 "Galilean moons" as observed by Hubble in 2015: https://t.co/IRw7oGfTGH https://t.co/tsolgB9sNM

#HubbleFriday Hubble has captured the smoking gun of a newborn star! These five objects, visible in blue in the top center of the image, lie within NGC 1333, a reflection nebula full of gas and dust found about a thousand light-years away from Earth: https://t.co/y9erxz69kz https://t.co/CBaBreyexs

#OTD in 1997, astronaut Steve Hawley, who deployed Hubble using the space shuttle's robotic arm in 1990, used the shuttle's arm to capture Hubble from orbit in preparation for its second servicing mission. #HubbleClassic https://t.co/K7qIYrqwSw

During its routine yearly monitoring of the weather on our solar system's outer planets, Hubble uncovered a new mysterious dark storm on Neptune and provided a fresh look at a long-lived storm circling around the north polar region on Uranus: https://t.co/ErZTfFwZfF https://t.co/NzHhhxOK8n

Because of its 13-billion-year-old age, and its isolation — which resulted in hardly any interaction with other galaxies — this dwarf spheroidal galaxy is the astronomical equivalent of a living fossil from the early universe: https://t.co/VVZ1OzTcBf https://t.co/gBvtTXxcaZ

#HubbleClassic The sharpest view of the Orion Nebula ever captured by Hubble revealed never-before-seen stars, swirls of gas shaped by massive stars born in the giant stellar nursery, and dusty disks around young stars where planets might also be forming: https://t.co/I3sXeqwavY https://t.co/wf0jiX8NP3

This very distant quasar has been magnified and split into three images due to the gravitational field of a foreground galaxy. The quasar would have gone undetected if not for the power of gravitational lensing, which boosted its brightness 50x #AAS233 https://t.co/fLZnQXBVYe https://t.co/Uv3lYjRBNx
