Hip Hip Hubble?

As someone who grew up star gazing every evening, I still hold a fond fascination for astronomy and all that lies beyond our little word (aliens from X-Files and War of the Worlds, kindly step aside please!). So all the recent news about the Hubble Space Telescope being tweaked and made good for a few more years really was cheerful news.

I would love to bore you with some Hubble history but I presume my readership is quite intelligent (:P) and will therefore intelligently find their way to the Hubble Site.

The only thing I wanted to do was to post one of the most ‘beautiful’ and breathtaking pictures ever taken by the Hubble of the Carina Nebula. Rich with shades of blues, greens, yellows and purples, the picture reminds the observer once more of the beauty that one can find in nature and the wider universe.

And until we have the James Webb telescope later in 2014/15, we’ll keep enjoying the images sent by dear old Hubble.

On the lighter side who else can see Gandalf, a Balrog, the witch king of Angmar and an Orc in this picture????
