#hubblefriday In this image taken by Hubble, the galaxy NGC 4380 looks like a special effect straight out of a science fiction or fantasy film, swirling like a gaping portal to another dimension. In the grand scheme of things, though, the galaxy is

#hubbleclassic Garden-variety stars like the Sun live fairly placid lives in their galactic neighborhoods, casually churning out heat and light for billions of years. When these stars reach retirement age, however, they transform into unique and ofte

No one knows where it came from. No one knows how long it has been drifting through the empty, cold abyss of interstellar space. But this year an object called comet 2I/Borisov came in from the cold. It was detected falling past our Sun by a Crimean

#hubblefriday Hubble sees galaxies of all shapes, sizes, luminosities and orientations in the cosmos. Sometimes, the telescope gazes at a galaxy oriented sideways — as shown here. The spiral galaxy featured in this Hubble image is called NGC 3717, a

The Hubble Space Telescope is well known for its incredible images. But what about those among us who are visually impaired? To help spread awareness as a part of World Sight Day, this video is meant to share the importance of different ways to exper

This illustration envisions the Milky Way galaxy's gas recycling above and below its stellar disk. Hubble observes the invisible gas clouds rising and falling with its sensitive Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) instrument. The spectroscopic signatur

#hubbleclassic Today, Hubble has been in space for a full Saturn year, which is equal to 10,759 Earth days (or about 29.5 Earth years). These images, taken from 1990 to 2019, show how Hubble's views of Saturn have gotten better over time as its camer

#hubblefriday The galaxy pictured in this Hubble image has an especially evocative name: the Medusa merger. Often referred to by its somewhat drier New General Catalogue designation of NGC 4194, this was not always one entity, but two. An early gala

#hubbleclassic Wrapped in the gaseous remains of supernova explosions, NGC 1850 is a double star cluster in a neighboring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. A huge collection of stars near the center is accompanied by a smaller group (lower right).

#hubblefriday This image from Hubble shows the galaxy Messier 86. Despite its being discovered over 235 years ago by astronomer Charles Messier, the morphological classification of Messier 86 remains unclear; astronomers are still debating over wheth

Did you know that a black hole lurks deep within this #hubbleclassic image of globular cluster M15? The swarm of stars is home to an intermediate-mass black hole, which is a rare type. Supermassive black holes are found at the center of galaxies and
