A New Era for Supernova 1987A  Supernova 1987A was discovered in 1987 within the Large Magellanic Cloud, a neighboring galaxy to our Milky Way. The bright ring around the central region of the exploded star is composed of material ejected by the star about 20,000 years before its demise. Clouds of hydrogen gas surround the supernova, fueling a firestorm of star birth. http://hubblesite.org/image/3987/news_release/2017-08

The explosion of this star, visible to the naked eye, is one of the most important astronomical eve.

NGC 248 in the Small Magellanic Cloud NGC 248 is a pair of nebulas found in the SMC. It is among a number of glowing hydrogen nebulas in the dwarf satellite galaxy of our Milky Way galaxy. Intense radiation from the brilliant central stars is heating hydrogen in each of the nebulas, causing them to glow red. http://hubblesite.org/image/3970/news_release/2016-42

Festive nebulae NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured two festive-looking nebulas, situated so as to appear as one. They reside in the Small Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy that is a satellite of.

Crab Nebula Supernova remnant  The Crab Nebula is a dead star, which exploded long ago as a supernova. Buried at its center is the star's tell-tale heart — the crushed core of the exploded star called a neutron star — which beats with rhythmic precision. This surviving remnant is a tremendous dynamo spinning 30 times a second, unleashes wisp-like waves that form an expanding ring. The nebula's hot gas glows in radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum…

An eerie view of the Crab Nebula shows a powerful neutron star shrouded in the gas from a supernova explosion. The energy from the swiftly spinning neutron star creates an expanding ring of waves through the debris (visible at center).

This Frontier Fields image provides a sneak peak of the early universe. In the center is the immense galaxy cluster Abell S1063, located 4 billion light-years away, and surrounded by magnified images of galaxies much farther. The mass of the cluster distorts and magnifies the light from galaxies that lie far behind it due to an effect called gravitational lensing – a phenomenon which allows Hubble to see galaxies that would otherwise be too small and faint to observe. http://hbbl.us/4PFq

This view of a massive cluster of galaxies unveils a very cluttered-looking universe filled with galaxies near and far. Some are distorted like a funhouse mirror through a "space warp" phenomenon first predicted by Einstein a century ago.

Peering deep into the core of the Crab Nebula, this close-up image reveals the beating heart of one of the most historic and intensively studied remnants of a supernova, an exploding star. The inner region sends out clock-like pulses of radiation and tsunamis of charged particles embedded in magnetic fields. The neutron star at the very center of the Crab Nebula has about the same mass as the sun but compressed into an incredibly dense sphere that is only a few miles across.  hbbl.us/jQBpf

On May 12, 2016, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured this striking image of Mars, when the planet was 50 million miles from Earth. The photo reveals details as small as 20 miles to 30 miles across. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2016/15/

New images obtained on May 16, 2016, by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope confirm the presence of a dark vortex in the atmosphere of Neptune. Though similar features were seen during the Voyager 2 flyby of Neptune in 1989 and by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1994, this vortex is the first one observed on Neptune in the 21st century. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2016/22/

Located about 4.3 billion light-years from Earth, MACS J0416 is a pair of colliding galaxy clusters that will eventually combine to form an even bigger cluster. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2016/08/

At first glance, this cosmic kaleidoscope of purple, blue and pink offers a strikingly beautiful—and serene—snapshot of the cosmos. However, this multi-colored haze actually marks the site of two colliding galaxy clusters, .

MACS J0717, one of the most complex and distorted galaxy clusters known, is the site of a collision between four clusters. It is located about 5.4 billion light-years away from Earth. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2016/08/
