Hubble Telescope Images, great hubble telescope pictures

Welcome to this part of our astronomy website. Here are some of our favorite Hubble Telescope Images. Feel free to download any of these great Hubble telescope images to your computer for personal use. We are going to be adding more Hubble telescope pictures on this page soon. To view the Hubble telescope images in full size just click on the pictures.

The Hubble Space Telescope and The Spitzer Space Telescope teamed up to create what just might be the most incredible deep sky images ever. Focusing both mighty instruments at the incredibly photogenic Orion Nebula let astronomers create this spectacular image.

The Hubble Telescope shoots in visible light while Spitzer shoots at infrared wavelengths. The combined data far exceeds what either could do by itself and is simply one of the most amzaing astronomical images of all time.

eta carinae

One of the most unusual stellar formations, Eta Carinae, observed by the Hubble Telescope has baffled astrophysicists. A variable blue stellar object, many times more massive than our Sun continues to defy current explanations. Mankind’s current theory for the star Eta Carinae has two unique features, first with stellar mass being ejected from the polar regions of the star. A conclusion that scientists have reached, points to these locations as the path of least resistance. The other unique feature of this stellar formation pertains to the disk of stellar material radiating outward along its present equator. The puzzle is only partially solved by mankind, is correct in pinpointing the location of where the expulsion of stellar mass occurs, the Polar Regions, verified by observation of the stellar region by telescope.

nebula hubble

A nebula, the stars are in the foreground.

helix nebula

This infrared image from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Helix nebula, a cosmic starlet often photographed by amateur astronomers for its vivid colors and eerie resemblance to a giant eye.

The nebula, located about 700 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius, belongs to a class of objects called planetary nebulae. Discovered in the 18th century, these colorful beauties were named for their resemblance to gas-giant planets like Jupiter.

crab nebula hubble

Hubble Optical Image of Crab Nebula
This composite image of the Crab Nebula was assembled from 24 individual exposures taken with the NASA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 in October 1999, January 2000, and December 2000. It is one of the largest images taken by Hubble and is the highest resolution image ever made of the entire Crab Nebula.

giant spiral galaxy

Giant galaxies weren’t assembled in a day. Neither was this Hubble Space Telescope image of the face-on spiral galaxy Messier 101 (M101). It is the largest and most detailed photo of a spiral galaxy that has ever been released. The galaxy’s portrait is actually composed of 51 individual Hubble exposures, in addition to elements from images from ground-based photos. The final composite image measures a whopping 16,000 by 12,000 pixels.

celestial geode

In this unusual image, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captures a rare view of the celestial equivalent of a geode - a gas cavity carved by the stellar wind and intense ultraviolet radiation from a young hot star.

hubble picture

This image was assembled from images taken in January thru February 2006. It is an image of a galactic cluster in the constellation Centaurus, inspiringly known as Abell S0740.

The big blob in the middle is a elliptical galaxy called ESO 325-G004 (yeah, I know. Point that out on a date and see if it gets you laid).

This is what the Hubble ACS camera did best. It was an amazing camera.

hubble zwicky18

(Oct. 17, 2007) — The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has found out the true nature of a dwarf galaxy that astronomers had for a long time identified as one of the youngest galaxies in the Universe. Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have made observations of the galaxy I Zwicky 18 which seem to indicate that it is in fact much older and much farther away than previously thought.

star cluster

The Hubble Space Telescope has captured a spectacular image of NGC 3603, a giant nebula hosting one of the most prominent massive young clusters in the Milky Way, thus supplying a prime template for star formation studies.
