    Hubble snaps image of Nebula

    Hubble snapped this picture of a nebula inside a cluster with its wide field planetary camera.



    The unique planetary nebula NGC 2818 is nested inside the open star cluster NGC 2818A. Both the cluster and the nebula reside over 10,000 light-years away, in the southern constellation Pyxis (the Compass).

    Probably the coolest picture ever.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Hubble snaps image of Nebula

    Does anybody know if NASA makes hi-res images of these shots available to the public? In the past, I know they made some of the stuff from Mars available...

    Re: Hubble snaps image of Nebula

    I know NASA images are suppose to be free. I think you can request hi res images from them from their website.

    What I find cool is that Nebula looks probably nothing like that right now. That is what it looked like 10000 years ago.

    That camera must be at least 8MP.
