*Description*: These images of the Arches cluster, taken by three different telescopes, reveal progressively more detail in the tightly packed collection of about 2,000 stars. The Arches is the densest star cluster in our Milky Way Galaxy and resides in our galaxy's crowded core. Astronomers used the image at right, taken with Hubble's Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer, to determine if stars in the cluster have a weight limit at birth. Hubble's infrared camera is well suited to...

*Description*: The never-before-seen surface of the distant planet Pluto is resolved in these NASA Hubble Space Telescope pictures, taken with the European Space Agency's (ESA) Faint Object Camera (FOC) aboard Hubble. Discovered in 1930, Pluto has always appeared as nothing more than a dot of light in even the largest earth-based telescopes because Pluto's disk is much smaller than can be resolved from beneath the Earth's turbulent atmosphere. Pluto is 2/3 the size of Earth's Moon but 1,200...

Backyard stargazers get a monthly guide to the northern hemisphere's skywatching events with "Tonight's Sky." In December, Mars and Saturn are morning planets, and look for the M103 cluster in Perseus. "Tonight's Sky" is produced by HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope. This is a recurring show, and you can find more episodes — and other astronomy videos — at HubbleSite.org. Visit Tonight's Sky on HubbleSite....

The shell is so young it still contains a record of the initial conditions of the explosion. The HST image was taken in ultraviolet light with the European Space Agency's Faint Object Camera (FOC) on May 31, 1993, 467 days after the explosion. The FOC reveals a remarkably circular yet slightly lumpy ring-like...

*Description*: An image of Jupiter taken on May 18, 1994, by the Wide Field & Planetary Camera-2 (WFPC-2) in wide field mode aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, when the giant planet was at a distance of 420 million miles (670 million km) from Earth. This "true-color" picture was assembled from separate HST exposures in red, blue, and green light. Jupiter's rotation between exposures creates the blue and red fringe on either side of the disk. HST can resolve details in Jupiter's...

*Description*: One of the deepest images of the sky taken to date with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope reveals a population of faint blue galaxies which turn out to be the most common class of objects in the universe. Their distances are estimated to range from three to eight billion light-years, meaning that they were abundant when the universe was a fraction of its present age, but are rare or harder to find today because they have faded or self-destructed. This picture, in combination with a...

*Description*: [left] This image of a small region of the constellation Sculptor, taken with a ground-based photographic sky survey camera, illustrates the extremely small angular size of a distant galaxy cluster in the night sky. Though this picture encompasses a piece of the sky about the width of the bowl of the Big Dipper, the cluster is so far away it fills a sky area only 1/10th the diameter of the Full Moon. The cluster members are not visible because they are so much fainter than...

These dark regions provide the only information ever obtained on the wind direction and speed in Jupiter's upper atmosphere. TOP Three impact sites appear as dark smudges lined up along Jupiter's southern...

*Description*: This is an artist's concept of the view of the nighttime sky from the surface of a hypothetical planet orbiting an "intergalactic" star in the Virgo cluster of galaxies, based on recent research with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Billions of years ago, the star may have been tossed out of its home galaxy into the dark emptiness of intergalactic space by a collision or close encounter between galaxies. Now an aged red supergiant star, its dull cherry red glow floods the...

*Description*: These are Hubble Space Telescope images of four newly discovered protoplanetary disks around young stars in the Orion nebula, located 1,500 light-years away. Gas and dust disks, long suspected by astronomers to be an early stage of planetary formation, can be directly seen in visible light by Hubble. Disks around young stars (also known as circumstellar or protoplanetary disks) are thought to be made up of 99% gas and 1% dust. Even that small amount of dust is enough to make the...

Since molecular hydrogen gas can only be observed by radio technique, contour lines are here used to show where the optically invisible hydrogen gas lies. The manner in which GMCs form stars may strongly depend on environment. In Milky Way, stars form slowly, soon disrupt and disperse molecular gas around them, as seen here in Eagle Nebula. In merging galaxies experiencing vast bursts of star formation, the...
