*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...

*Description*:> NASA's Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph took a series of snapshots of Saturn's aurora dancing in the sky. The ultraviolet images were taken on Jan. 8, 2004. This dissolve sequence shows the aurora appearing as a ring of light circling the planet's polar ring. Collisions with atoms and molecules make the gases in the planet's atmosphere glow in visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light.

The cooler a star is, the redder it appears, and it diminishes in brightness. The bluer stars are to the left; redder stars are to the right. The brightest stars are near the top. The three curves represent the three...

Gravitational Lensing in Galaxy Cluster Abell 370 The Hubble Space Telescope's newly repaired Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) has peered nearly 5 billion light-years away to resolve intricate details in the galaxy cluster Abell 370. Abell 370 is one of the very first galaxy clusters where astronomers observed the phenomenon of gravitational lensing, where the warping of space by the clusterâs gravitational field distorts the light from galaxies lying far behind it. This is manifested as arcs...

*Description*: A Hubble Space Telescope image of a giant disk of cold gas and dust fueling a possible black hole at the core of the galaxy. Estimated to be 300 light years across, the disk is tipped enough (about 60 degrees) to provide astronomers with a clear view of its bright hub, which presumably harbors the black hole. The dark, dusty disk represents a cold outer region which extends inwards to an ultra hot accretion disk within a few hundred million miles of the suspected black hole. This...

*Description*: Six amateur astronomers will have a rare opportunity to use NASA'S Hubble Space Telescope to conduct original research. Officials at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) announced today that the observations were chosen from proposals submitted by amateur astronomers across the nation. The amateur programs will use Hubble Space Telescope to study the birth of stars, spectroscopically probe the atmosphere of the giant moon Titan, attempt to settle a controversial theory...

*Description*: Sequence of images showing evidence for a plume near the terminator of Jupiter at the time of the A impact. A bright feature appears 1000-1500 km above the limb of Jupiter at 20:18:17 in the 953 nm filter. (An image at 20:15:17 did not show a detached feature). A possible interpretation is that the feature is visible by reflected sunlight, and the apparent detachment is due to the shadow of Jupiter on the plume. During the temporal sequence from top to bottom, spreading of the...

Members of the WFPC-2 Science Team, lead by John Trauger, acquired the first series of images on 27 through 29 June 1994. These were the highest resolution images of Neptune taken since the Voyager-2 flyby in August of 1989. A more comprehensive program is currently being conducted by Heidi Hammel and Wes Lockwood....

The stars are so close together gas flows from the normal star onto the dwarf where it swirls into a pancake-shaped disk. When the disk of gas periodically collapses onto the white dwarf, it unleashes a burst of...
