Hubble Celebrates Its 24th Anniversary with an Infrared Look at a Nearby Star Factory. In April of this year, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope will be celebrating 24 years of observing. To celebrate this milestone, the observatory is releasing a brand new image of part of NGC 2174, otherwise known as the Monkey Head nebula. This new Hubblecast episode showcases this beautiful image, which views a colourful region filled with young stars embedded within bright wisps of cosmic gas and dust.

This year, the Hubble Space Telescope turns 24. To celebrate @Stephanie Close Anderson has released a stunning image of the monkeyhead nebula (also known as as NGC 2174 and Sharpless Sh2-252), which was taken last month. Image: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

Carved knots of gas and dust in the "Monkey Head" Nebula (NGC 2174) as photographed by the amazing Hubble telescope. So similar to the famous "pillars of creation" photograph by Hubble 20 years ago!

#Stars and #Space images from the #Hubble telescope.

The strikingly unusual planetary nebula, NGC 6751. Glowing in the constellation Aquila like a giant eye, the nebula is a cloud of gas ejected several thousand years ago from the hot star visible in its center.

The dust sculptures of the Eagle Nebula are evaporating. As powerful starlight whittles away these cool cosmic mountains, the statuesque pillars that remain might be imagined as mythical beasts. Pictured above is one of several striking dust pillars of the Eagle Nebula that might be described as a gigantic alien fairy. This fairy, however, is ten light years tall and spews radiation much hotter than common fire.

A new astro-camera has captured the sharpest images ever of the universe—twice as sharp as the Hubble Space Telescope

I really want a good telescope. The Hubble should do...
