#Hubble and #Keck observatories uncover #blackholes coalescing. These images reveal the final stage of a union between pairs of galactic nuclei in the messy cores of colliding galaxies.
Hubble has taken a series of spectacular images featuring the fluttering auroras at the north pole of #Saturn. The ultraviolet observations provide astronomers with the most comprehensive picture so far of Saturn's northern aurora.
Hubble discovers new type of object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter
Hubble takes another look at planet #Uranus. This new image, taken with Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3, adds to the legacy of images already taken and will provide scientists with even more new insights into our distant neighbour.
Take a good look at this photo. The light that we see now actually left this galaxy 65 million years ago, just when the dinosaurs became extinct.
