Experts have revisited one of the most iconic images that have been taken with the Hubble Space Telescope. This reveals amazing details in infrared light.
The image in question has been called Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula, and it’s been taken by Hubble back in 1995.
The iconic Hubble image features elephant trunk-shaped features and these are some star-forming regions that are made up of amazing monolithic structures of interstellar gas and dust.
The region is located about 6,500 to 7,000 light-years from the Earth and this is part of a larger region that’s called the Eagle Nebula.
This is a stellar nursery in the constellation Serpens. These pillars are stretching about 4 to 5 light-years away, and the Eagle Nebula spans 55-70 light-years, accorid9ng to the latest reports coming from Space.com.
A new light over the Pillars of Creation
This really popular image of the Pillars of Creation, which NASA had previously released back in 1995 is showing the region as it’s seen in visible light.
In the new image that’s been released, experts are showing the pillars in infrared light – this can pierce through really thick clouds and reveal what’s lurking behind the due and gas that are in the background.
The new image is breathtaking and it shows what this region truly looks like within the thick clouds of gas and dust.
NASA amazed the world with new Jupiter photo
NASA recently made universe enthusiasts excited with a new mind-blowing photo that the Juno spacecraft took of Jupiter’s northern regions during a flyby from back in February.
According to the latest info coming from Futurism online publication, the image has been taken from 15,610 miles away from the gas giant.
As we noted in one of our previous articles, the amazing image shows “thin bands” that run from top to bottom. These seem to be layers of “haze particles” that are drifting underneath a cloud cover.
