Hubble Captures Colorful Universe

NASA releases an image showing 10,000 galaxies spread across space.

The Hubble orbits the Earth above our atmosphere, allowing it to view the universe more clearly than telescopes on the ground. Light pollution from cities can also make it difficult for us to view the night sky.

NASA has released the most colorful image of the universe to date, a composite of images taken over a nine-year period by the Hubble Space Telescope and revealing around 10,000 galaxies spread across space. The image also combines ultraviolet light imagery to reveal stars we couldn't see previously and includes galaxies dating as old as ten billion years.
