8. Galaxy NGC 4214


This image displays episodes of star formation happening across the face of nearby galaxy NGC 4214. The galaxy is currently forming clusters of new stars from its interstellar gas and dust.

9. NGC 602


This amazing image features NGC 602 surrounded by natal gas and dust. The image spans about 200 light-years.

10. Spiral Galaxy NGC 5584


This is a galaxy observed by the astronomers to study universe’s expansion rate. The NGC 584 is located 72 million light-years away in the Virgo constellation, It’s a composite image of several exposures captured by Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3.

11. Supermassive star Eta Carinae


This image is of the star Eta Carinae, showing huge, billowing pair of gas and dust clouds.

12. DEM L 190


The delicate filaments are in fact sheets of debris from a stellar explosion in a nearby galaxy — look like the puffs of smoke and sparks from a summer fireworks display.

13. Galaxy Zwicky 18


Galaxy Zwicky 18 is likened to the famous painting of Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde novel as it appears to look older the more astronomers study it.

14. Cosmic Caterpillar (IRAS 20324+4057)


This image is of the amazing starburst galaxy, Messier 82 (M82). The galaxy stands apart due to its bright blue disk, webs of shredded clouds, and fiery-looking plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out of its central regions.

15. Galaxy NGC 4911


This face-on spiral galaxy located within the Coma Cluster of galaxies, lies 320 million light-years away in the northern constellation Coma Berenices. Called NGC 4911, it encompass rich lanes of dust and gas near its center.

16. NGC 2074


This picture, is a snapshot of a dazzling region of celestial birth and renewal. The image shows a small portion of the nebula star cluster NGC 2074, located 170,000 light-years away,

17. The Bug Nebula


The Bug Nebula is one of the brightest planetary nebulae known. At its center lies a hot, dying star smothered in a blanket of hailstones.

18. ‘The Mice’ (NGC 4676)


This image is of 2 galaxies from the constellation Coma Berenices, also called ‘The Mice’ (NGC 4674).

19. The Horsehead Nebula


Horse Head Nebula is a small portion of a bigger star-forming complex in the Orion constellation.

20. Light Echo From Star V838 Monocerotis


The V838 Monocerotis became 600,000 times more luminous than the Sun in 2002. However, the brightness was short-lived.

21. An Old Star Gives Up the Ghost


It’s also called the “Little Ghost Nebula”, because it looks like a small ghostly cloud. This picture captures the dying moments of the star.

22. A “Rose” Made of Galaxies Highlights Hubble’s 21st Anniversary


This image shows an especially photogenic group of interacting galaxies called Arp 273.

23. Hubble Reveals the Ring Nebula’s True Shape


This composite image, is a dramatic view of the well-known Ring Nebula. Called a planetary nebula, the Ring Nebula is the glowing remains of a Sun-like star.

24. The Slant on Saturn’s Rings


Watch Saturn in ultraviolet light. Saturn’s atmosphere has particles displaying different wavelengths of light in discrete ways – making some bands of gas in the atmosphere to stand out vividly in an image, while other areas will be very dark or dull.
