A really beautiful image. Even in its relative dotage, the HST still continues to amaze. smile.gif

Now let's get that servicing mission off to Hubble without delay!

Crikey! Look at the dark streamers connecting a number of clusters/associations to the dust lane. They remind me of the Eagle Nebula pillars.

Beautiful - though those are hugely bigger. The pillars in the Eagle Nebula are "only" a few tens of light years.

Thanks to the latest Hubble refurbishment, the telescope is back in business cool.gif
NASA will hold news briefings at 11 a.m. and noon EDT Wednesday, Sept. 9, to release and discuss the first images from the newly refurbished Hubble Space Telescope. NASA Television and the agency's Web site will provide live coverage of the briefings from NASA Headquarters in Washington.

With only two days exposure, rather than two weeks of the previous HDF's.

Though to be honest, this shorter exposure shows noticeably higher noise than the last HUDF, but it's still pretty darn impressive.

The Washington Post's Joel Aschenbach did an article on the HST earlier this month, entitled "The Wow Factor."

In discussing one image of the Butterfly Nebula, he writes, "It's such a gorgeous image that we will refrain from dwelling on the extreme color enhancement that NASA uses to make these photographs so seductive. "

It is helpful to remember that we are not looking at "real" colors in these images, but they're so beautifully rendered that we want to believe that it's true color!

Not exactly a Hubble discovery, but a followup observation:

That's just plain amazing.

I wonder if the "Y" pattern can provide any clues about the putative impact geometry?
