This spectacular Hubble view captures the heart of our Milky Way Galaxy!
Within it reside both young and old stars offering clues about our galaxy’s formation.
@NASAWebb will help study our galaxy’s archaeology once science operations begin in July: https://t.co/gdM8mJU4ky https://t.co/pkI7ZiPzWG
Not just one, but a whole cluster of galaxies shines in this week’s #HubbleFriday image!
This galaxy cluster is Abell 1351, and it's located in the constellation Ursa Major in the northern hemisphere. Read more: https://t.co/Tf0ilrLCwU https://t.co/jUjWS5GF6F
It’s a planet parade! 🪐
Before sunrise, you can catch a naked-eye glimpse of planets “lined up” in the sky: https://t.co/TlvanMsNYJ
But if you aren’t a morning person, Hubble’s got you covered with planetary views of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn! https://t.co/sfR2PI3kLE
RT @NASAWebb: This Hubble Ultra Deep Field contains approximately 10,000 galaxies, extending back in time to within a few hundred million years of the big bang. What do galaxies that existed even earlier look like? Two teams using #NASAWebb will revise what we know: https://t.co/uGHrCQeCJ1 https://t.co/oqCttOBc1k
RT @chandraxray: Today Chandra is studying a star in the constellation Musca. Nearby in the sky is the Engraved Hourglass Nebula, a young planetary nebula located about 8,000 light-years from Earth. This iconic @NASAHubble image reveals nitrogen in red, hydrogen in green, and oxygen in blue. https://t.co/QSg9ICtcGP
Ever wondered what the music of the spheres would sound like?
This #WorldMusicDay, explore Hubble's sonifications!
Scientists assign pitch & volume to an image’s data, which translates data into sounds, like in this sonification of Caldwell 73: https://t.co/xdNsItSRIK https://t.co/Ll18y2e7mV
This #HubbleClassic view shows NGC 6090, a pair of spiral galaxies with overlapping central regions and two long tidal tails made of material ripped out of the galaxies by gravitational interactions.
NGC 6090 is about 400 million light-years away: https://t.co/7PLM0GNIh1 https://t.co/IZYqF1DzyX

Today we’re remembering Lyman Spitzer, the “father” of space telescopes. He helped pave the way for the Hubble mission by imagining the discoveries a telescope placed in space could make!

RT @NASASun: Earth isn’t the only planet that has auroras!
When charged particles from the #Sun strike Jupiter, they produce auroras hundreds of times more energetic than those on Earth.
@NASAHubble captured this view of Jupiter’s ultraviolet aurora.

A #HubbleFriday full of stars! 🤩
This star-studded image shows the globular cluster Terzan 9, located in the constellation Sagittarius.
Globular clusters are tightly bound groups of stars that contain tens of thousands to millions of stars! For more: https://t.co/mWxTiAXIt0 https://t.co/gUGMsVbc9Y
It takes a telescope team to investigate how stars form in our universe!
This Hubble image shows the star nursery NGC 346. After @NASAWebb begins science operations next month, its sharp infrared vision will observe stars wrapped in dusty cocoons: https://t.co/yaHowwryBU https://t.co/hdsGPNXuK5

Take in this ultra-spectacular ultraviolet view!
This Hubble image unveils thousands of galaxies shining in ultraviolet light, in addition to visible and near-infrared.

A dead star is siphoning off debris from its planetary system’s inner and outer reaches!
With the help of Hubble, astronomers observed this white dwarf star that’s consuming both rocky-metallic and icy material.

RT @NASAUniverse: We don’t just photograph nature on Earth … we can see deep into the universe with the help of telescopes. Observatories like @NASAHubble, @chandraxray, and our retired Spitzer telescope capture the beauty of the cosmos in different wavelengths of light. #NaturePhotographyDay https://t.co/Yfy2j76YBr
Happy #NaturePhotographyDay! Take a dive into this Hubble image of the Cosmic Reef
Even though this view looks like an undersea world, it’s really two spectacular nebulae unleashing a firestorm of starbirth about 163,000 light-years away! Read more: https://t.co/hh9Edqus46 https://t.co/bOFUh3wTNQ
Like ships in the night, two spiral galaxies in this #HubbleClassic image are captured in a near-collision!
Trails of stars and gas are stretched by the gravitational pull between the galaxies, NGC 2207 (left) and IC 2163 (right): https://t.co/QQFRP9nkOo https://t.co/6jnQNhLnI5
