Transcript

  • 1. Spectacular Space Photos! The top ten greatest space photographs taken by Hubble Telescope
  • 2. Tenth Place - Trifid Nebula (M20, NGC 6514) It’s a 'stellar nursery' where new stars are being born and is about 9,000 light years away in Constellation Sagittarius.
  • 3. The glowering eyes are the cores of the two merging galaxies in Constellation Canis Major, 114 million light years away.   Ninth Place – Colliding spiral galaxies (NGC 2207 and IC 2163)
  • 4.   It is an expanding star with a halo of light around it in Constellation Monoceros about 20,000 light years away. It reminded astronomers of Van Gogh’s painting. Eighth Place - Starry Night (V838 Monocerotis)
  • 5. Seventh Place - Perfect Storm It’s a small region in the Swan Nebula (M17) about 5,500 light-years away in Constellation Sagittarius. It resembles a raging sea that is a bubbly ocean of glowing hydrogen gas and small amounts of other elements such as oxygen and sulfur.
  • 6. The part pictured here is 2.5 light years in length. It’s about 2,700 light years away in Constellation Monoceros. Sixth Place - Cone Nebula (NGC 2264)
  • 7. It’s about 8,000 light years away in Constellation Musca. It has a 'pinched-in-the-middle' look because the winds that shape it are weaker at the centre. Fifth Place - Hourglass Nebula (MyCn 18)
  • 8. Fourth Place - Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC 6543) It is a planetary nebula in Constellation Draco, about 3,300 light years away. It resembles a cat’s eye.
  • 9. It looks like a face surrounded by a parka hood. The hood is a ring of comet-shaped objects flying away from a dying star.  Eskimo is about 3,000 light years away in Constellation Gemini.  Third Place - Eskimo Nebula (NGC 2392)
  • 10. It’s a cloud of dust and gas resembling an ant. It’s about 8,000 light years away in Constellation Norma .  Second Place –Ant Nebula (Mz3)
  • 11. First Place –Sombrero Galaxy (M104) It has 800 billion suns and is 50,000 light years across. It is 29 million light years away in Constellation Virgo.
