In 2002, star V838 Monocerotis brightened dramatically in a mysterious outburst, allowing Hubble to capture a series of images of the dust and gas around the star. "Hubble's Universe Unfiltered" is a recurring broadcast from HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope. Astrophysicist Frank Summers takes viewers on an in-depth tour of the latest Hubble discoveries. Find more episodes at HubbleSite.org.

However, when the galaxy is viewed in ultraviolet light with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, its shape is startlingly different. At ultraviolet wavelengths, which are rendered as blue in the Hubble image, NGC 6782 shows a spectacular, nearly circular bright ring surrounding its nucleus. The ring marks the presence of many...

*Description*: The Hubble Space Telescope's latest image of the star V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon) reveals dramatic changes in the illumination of surrounding dusty cloud structures. The effect, called a light echo, has been unveiling never-before-seen dust patterns ever since the star suddenly brightened for several weeks in early 2002. The illumination of interstellar dust comes from the red supergiant star at the middle of the image, which gave off a pulse of light three years ago, somewhat...

This is going to be a very exciting, complicated and challenging mission. We have seven brave astronauts who´_Û_Ôve made a conscious decision to risk their lives in order to continue the advancement of science that Hubble has begun. They´_Û_Ôre going to buy another five, perhaps ten more years of lifetime for this great telescope.

*Description*: NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a new great dark spot, located in the northern hemisphere of the planet Neptune. Because the planet's northern hemisphere is now tilted away from Earth, the new feature appears near the limb of the planet. The spot is a near mirror-image to a similar southern hemisphere dark spot that was discovered in 1989 by the Voyager 2 probe. In 1994, Hubble showed that the southern dark spot had disappeared. Like its predecessor, the new spot has...

*Description*: We believe our HST observations of NGC 4038/4039 and other merger galaxies also shed some new light on how young globular clusters form, i.e., from giant clouds of hydrogen gas that astronomers call Giant Molecular Clouds. Full-grown spiral galaxies like the Milky Way have typically 1000-2000 such clouds. An example is the GMC associated with the Eagle Nebula.

Five trail segments (shown in white) were extracted from individual exposures and added to a cleaned color image of the galaxy. The asteroid enters the image at top center and moves down toward the lower left. Large gaps in the trail occur because the telescope is orbiting the Earth and cannot continuously observe the galaxy. This asteroid has a visual magnitude of 20.8, a diameter of...

Latitudes below about 60 degrees south were not viewed by the telescope because the planet's north pole was tilted towards Earth during this time.

*Description*: Hubble Diagram for Cepheids This is a plot of galaxy distance versus the velocity that the galaxy appears to be receding from Earth. It is based on data collected by the Hubble Space Telescope Key Project team. The distances have been measured using Cepheid variables. The slope in the plot measures the expansion rate of the universe, a quantity called the Hubble constant. The best fit to the data yields a Hubble constant of 70 kilometers/second/megaparsec. The dashed lines...

*Description*: This is a color polar view of the north polar region, showing the location of the storm relative to the classical bright and dark features in this area. The color composite data (410, 502, and 673 nm) indicate that the storm is fairly dust-free and therefore likely composed mostly of water ice clouds. The bright surface region beneath the eye of the storm can be seen clearly. This map covers the region north of 45 degrees latitude and is oriented with 0 degrees longitude at the...

*Description*: Astronomers analyzing debris from a comet that broke apart last summer spied pieces as small as smoke-sized particles and as large as football-field-sized fragments. But it's the material they didn't see that has aroused their curiosity. Tracking the doomed comet, named LINEAR, the Hubble telescope and the Very Large Telescope in Chile found tiny particles that made up the 2,000-mile-long dust tail and 16 large fragments, some as wide as 330 feet. But the telescopes didn't detect...

One such jewel is the bow shock around the very young star, LL Ori, featured in this Hubble Heritage image.

The picture was taken August 24, when Mars was approximately 34.7 million miles from Earth. The central linear feature running from left to right is Valles Marineris, a 2,480-mile (4,000-km) system of canyons. Sunlight illuminates one wall of the canyon, creating a striking white linear feature. To the...
