RT @NASAGoddard: On Sunday, Jan. 17th at 2pm ET, @NatPhilharmonic will take a musical journey through space with @NASAHubble images and a lunar tour from Goddard scientist Noah Petro. Streaming free at https://t.co/oLFslW6R3G https://t.co/5rPQkfIBMm
At 67 million light-years away, NGC 613 is a stunning example of a barred spiral galaxy.
It’s easy to distinguish the galaxy as such because of its well-defined central bar and long arms, which spiral loosely around the nucleus: https://t.co/Lsrr189AjW
Using Hubble, astronomers managed to retrace shrapnel from a supernova blast. Now, they have a more accurate estimate of the location and time of this stellar detonation: https://t.co/CBSCVBOtw1 #AAS237 https://t.co/C6Fl7MQf5R
Whoa... much better.
A flaw in Hubble's mirror meant that the telescope first looked to the universe with blurry vision. But #OTD in 1994, @NASA announced that new optics installed during the first servicing mission to Hubble had solved the problem: https://t.co/T5dJnKu7aK https://t.co/GZOUVxGPks
Stretching up to 20,000 light-years long, the red filaments near the center of this #HubbleClassic view of NGC 1275 are threads of gas.
These filaments are giant, but delicate, and are shaped by a strong magnetic field around the galaxy: https://t.co/pDNr5bzq62 https://t.co/0gRomhtwqz
RT @NASARoman: Almost two decades ago, @NASAHubble watched a tiny patch of sky and found 10,000 galaxies. The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope would see a patch 100 times larger .. You do the math. https://t.co/JUbBVuewhL https://t.co/cK0ZJ0ld4Y
Attention bookworms! Discover the story of Hubble in a newly released book all about the riveting history of the telescope and its first 30 years operating in space. “Not Yet Imagined” is available for FREE download now!

In the last century alone, the Fireworks Galaxy (or NGC 6946) has experienced 10 observed supernovae. For context, our Milky Way Galaxy averages just one to two supernova events per century!
NGC 6946 resides 25.2 million light-years away: https://t.co/wFCSDYfFKr

When galaxies collide, they go through dramatic changes in appearance and stellar content. Each of these merging systems was studied as part of a recent Hubble survey to investigate the rate of new star formation within such systems.

Turn it up! Through sonification, we can “listen” to the data in this image of the Bullet Cluster, which combines Hubble observations with those from @chandraxray and ground-based telescopes.

Big things come in "small" packages.
The relatively small, but extremely bright, center of the galaxy NGC 1566 in this #HubbleClassic image emits strong bursts of radiation. It’s also home to a black hole that’s many millions of times the mass of our Sun: https://t.co/6xCuWhGHdB https://t.co/kYKZON3JHs

Explore this #HubbleClassic view of NGC 3314A and NGC 3314B, two galaxies in the constellation Hydra.
Though the galaxies appear to be locked in a cosmic dance, they’re separated by tens of millions of light-years, with one closer to us than the other: https://t.co/rmS70mTF6k https://t.co/ZZ4iKoHULO
RT @NASA360: 30 years of @NASAHubble means 30 seconds of dazzling images for all!
30 seconds not enough? We get it.
Thank you for the kind words, @NASARoman. We’re so excited for what you and @NASAWebb will achieve!
