Happy Birthday, Hubble

Light Echoes From Red Supergiant Star V838 Monocerotis (Dec 2002) (NASA, ESA)

This coming Saturday, the amazing Hubble Space Telescope will celebrate its 20th birthday.

To mark this anniversary, Discover magazine offers a slideshow of what it characterizes as 10 of Hubble’s most underrated images — although several among these will almost certainly be familiar to observers of Hubble’s stunning decades of discovery.

If this short selection of images only whets your appetite, visit the brobdingnagian gallery of images in the gallery at NASA’s HubbleSite. You won’t be disappointed.
