Astronomers Select Top Ten Most Amazing Pictures Taken by Hubble Space Telescope in Last 16 Years

August 25, 2007
These are so awesome, I wish I could have been there to take the pictures myself!
clipped from
Hubble telescope’s top ten greatest space photographs

The Sombrero Galaxy – 28 million light years from Earth

The Ant Nebula, a cloud of dust and gas whose technical name is Mz3, resembles

In third place is Nebula NGC 2392, called Eskimo because it looks like a face
face surrounded by a furry hood.

At four is the Cat’s Eye Nebula

The Hourglass Nebula, 8,000 light years away

In sixth place is the Cone Nebula. The part pictured here is 2.5 light years in
years in length (the equivalent of 23 million return trips to the Moon)

The Perfect Storm, a small region in the Swan Nebula, 5,500 light years away

Starry Night, so named because it reminded astronomers of the Van Gogh painting.

The glowering eyes from 114 million light years away are the swirling cores of two merging galaxies called NGC 2207

The Trifid Nebula. A ’stellar nursery’, 9,000 light years from here, it is where new stars are being born.

    HI – well !!!!! I am just happy that the sun arrives every morn at precisely the right time at precisely the right place on the horizon – I am amazed at that happening – that celestial happening – how does that happen sooooo regularly and predictably ? it is truly amazing that the solar system ( ours ) is so regular and predictable – its just great =- thanks so much – I need the sun every morning and would miss it if it did not arrive when it was supposed to – thanks again – John Rhodes — email at

    Oh my God, these images are just aglimse of the wonders that the universe holds, will we ever be able to travel beyond our solar system I highly doubt it, perhaps if they place a frozen embryo egg on a satellite type vessel, that can leave our solar system who knows perhaps there may be a chance higher intelligence may find it and help it develop, there has to be other life forms out there, the simple fact that the universe is lit up with life, re-assures me of this, the nights would be pit black if there was nothing out there, which it aint………

    ya know – some people are soooo stupid – this is bigbigbigbibig stuff – sooo stick with the earth and the rotation of the earth and the ellpitic of the earth with the sun – that is big enuf for me — AND AMAZING ENUF – for me — OK ?? it is really amazing and veryeveryvery big – almost too big for me – but I atill am amazed that it happens with such regularity and precision – just think – if it was off center just one degree we are all toast or ice – immediately – fast —- how does that happen ???????? I do not know – but it does – see you all in the morn

    Have any of u thought that this is too artistic. Maybe there are those that can and do make us c want they want us to c?? The Hubble was built by big corp, funded by tax payers, maintained by NASA and edited by big brother ( whoever wants to take that title can), and what does it produce?? Magical photos of distant phenomenon, that really look like the paintings, drawings from….. from any and ever mass produced fantasy comic, book, novel, wall painting, bark scratch that has ever been. People u must think for yourself, not think what they want u 2 think. Why have the powers that b not made public the photos of phenomenon that r happening here on Earth. Our planet is telling us something, and if we don’t listen soon then, mars #2 all over again. Anyway thats my view, no one elses. We all have a path to follow. The journey is part of the destination. Good luck 2 all.

    heck– it is all soooooooooooooooo amazing – who in the heck said I should not be so amazed anyway?? I am soooooooooooooo amazed atthe earth and it’s elliptic and the fabulous regularity and precion of it all – the earth the moon the cosmos in general and our solar system in particular – OK ????? LOL— really — it is so amazing — I love it – no choice in the matter – i don’t want a choice – it is too big for my mind to wrap around – that is for sure – thanks for listening cuz I have to rake the yard and that has to be done – I hope the sun ccomes back today – it seems to hiding right now – see you all tomorow – anyone here from Maine ??///??????- wish good luck to Steve Abbott in his quest for the Governor – Good lucck Steve – John Rhodes
