The Hubble Space Telescope’s 30th Anniversary Discloses 30 New Breath-Taking Pictures of the Cosmos

NASA has just released dozens of newly processed Hubble images featuring 30 dazzling galaxies, sparkling star clusters, and ethereal nebulae.

The Hubble Space Telescope’s 30th anniversary was celebrated by releasing 30 breathtaking images of the ever-growing universe. The images are covered by the Caldwell catalog, an astronomical catalog of 109 star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies for observation by amateur astronomers.

“These images have been taken by Hubble throughout its career and used for scientific research or for engineering tests, but NASA had not fully processed the images for public release until now,” said the space agency on Friday.

The pictures from the Hubble space telescope are extraordinary. They have odd shapes and sizes with beautiful colors that can be seen on the pictures on the list of the 30 pictures that were recently released.

“A shell of gas is expanding outward from the nebula’s central star, which has reached the final stage of its life,” said NASA about the NGC 40 or Caldwell 2 a planetary nebula that looks like a ghostly blob.

“To the naked eye, the two clusters look like one large hazy patch, but binoculars and telescopes neatly split the pair, providing beautiful views of this celestial treasure,” said NASA about the Caldwell 14, better known as the Double Cluster of the Perseus constellation.
