Hubble Views Ancient Storm on Jupiter. When 17th-century astronomers first turned their telescopes to Jupiter, they noted a conspicuous reddish spot on the giant planet. This Great Red Spot is still present in Jupiter's atmosphere, more than 300 years later. It is a vast storm, spinning like a cyclone. The mosaic presents a series of pictures of the Red Spot.
#NASA The Great Red Spot in Jupiter's atmosphere is so large that it can be seen by much smaller Earth-bound telescopes.
#NASA NGC 6670 is a pair of galaxies interacting with each other and are just 50,000 light years away.
#NASA If you aimed a telescope towards the 3-star belt in the constellation of Orion, you would see this.
#NASA The planet, Uranus. Its 27 moons are named after the characters from the works of William Shakespeare and Alexander Pope.
#NASA The Bubble Nebula (NGC 7635). How many stars this nursery 7,100-11,000 light years away gave birth to, I do not know.

#NASA When you look into the barred spiral galaxy, NGC 1512, it almost looks like the Star Wars depiction of traveling through hyperspace.
#NASA Every dot of light is a galaxy, not a star, when you look as far out of the known universe as you possibly can.
#NASA Before you, two superlatives: Jupiter, the largest planet in our Solar System; and Ganymede, Jupiter's largest satellite (moon). Ganymede also happens to be the largest of all the moons of any of the planets, even larger than our own Moon.
#NASA Eta Carinae (η Carinae) is one very unstable star. Are you glad we're 7,500-8,000 light years away?
