Top Ten Hubble Pictures

Very Cool

From Left to Right

The Sombrero Galaxy - 28 million light years from Earth -
was voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope.
The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104, are as spectacular as its appearance.
It has 800 billion suns and is 50,000 light years across.

The Ant Nebula, a cloud of dust and gas whose technical name is Mz3,
resembles an ant when observed using ground-based telescopes.
The nebula lies within our galaxy between 3,000 and 6,000 light years from Earth.


In third place is Nebula NGC 2392, called Eskimo because
it looks like a face surrounded by a furry hood.
The hood is, in fact, a ring of comet-shaped objects flying away from a dying star.
Eskimo is 5,000 light years from Earth.

At four is the Cat's Eye Nebul


The Hourglass Nebula, 8,000 light years away, has a pinched-in-the-middle
look because the winds that shape it are weaker at the centre.

6-10

Left to Right

In sixth place is the Cone Nebula.
The part pictured here is 2.5 light years in length
(the equivalent of 23 million return trips to the Moon).


The Perfect Storm, a small region in the Swan Nebula,
5,500 light years away, described as 'a bubbly ocean of hydrogen
and small amounts of oxygen, sulphur and other elements'


Starry Night, so named because it reminded astronomers of the Van Gogh painting.
It is a halo of light around a star in the Milky Way.

The glowering eyes from 114 million light years away
are the swirling cores of two merging galaxies called
NGC 2207 and IC 2163 in the distant Canis Major constellation.


The Trifid Nebula.
A 'stellar nursery', 9,000 light years from here,
it is where new stars are being born.

I've always loved the hubble pictures. I hope they fix the main camera before the launch of the new one in 2013.

I believe that 7 and maybe 10 are pictures of the Eagle Nebula. It's really cool stuff, just do a google search on it and you'll find tons of pictures....if I'm not mistaken that's also the nebula that they believe is more or less a "nursery" for stars.

I am always amazed at what there is to see beyond our small world. The universe is truly wonderous.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I think I read somewhere that they doctor the photos to add the colors. Hubble takes the pics in B&W. is that true?

Probably. Note that this is also when they airbrush the UFO's out of the pictures, too....

Color is not a property of any object, so not really.

Color is a perception (physically and mental). Think of it as a legend - color coding the different parts. After all our world is actually upside down. Your eyes flip the image over before it gets to your brain.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
