LENSED QUASAR

LENSED QUASAR Satellite: Hubble Space Telescope Depicts: RXJ1131-1231 Copyright: ESA/Hubble, NASA, Suyu et al. RXJ1131-1231 is among the five best-lensed quasars discovered to date. The foreground galaxy smears the image of the background quasar into a bright arc (left) and creates a total of four images – three of which can be seen within the […]

Sunny Side Up

Sunny Side Up What may first appear as a sunny side up egg is actually NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s face-on snapshot of the small spiral galaxy NGC 7742. But NGC 7742 is not a run-of-the-mill spiral galaxy. In fact, this spiral is known to be a Seyfert 2 active galaxy, a type of galaxy that […]

Spiral Galaxy a Key to the universe expansion rate This view from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the beautiful spiral galaxy NGC 5584. This galaxy has played a key role in a new study that measures the expansion rate of the Universe to greater accuracy than ever before. NGC 5584 was first spotted as […]

Composite ultraviolet visible infrared photography

    Composite ultraviolet visible infrared photography This infrared photography is a multi-wavelength composite made by seven individual exposures made with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. These exposures were taken by the Faint Object Camera (FOC), Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS). This image is […]
