"The Hubble Space Telescope's legendary Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 has produced one of its last images, a gorgeous shot of a planetary nebula.


The nebula, a colorful cloud of gas and dust named Knockout 4-55 (or K 4-55), has an eye that appears to be looking right back at Hubble. The image was taken May 4 and released today.


Monday, NASA aims to send the space shuttle Atlantis to Hubble, where astronauts will replace the camera with the Wide Field Camera 3, among other upgrades and fix-it projects. At a press conference, space agency officials said the camera will make one last image tomorrow, of a nearby galaxy named IC 5152, but that image won't be released immediately."

Very cool! Lately I have been viewing the various pics on the Hubble site...Here is your pic


planetary nebula Kohoutek 4-55



Here are some of my favorite pics from the Hubble site.


This is probably my favorite. I can stare at it all day. It' beautiful!


This makes me think of an angry sky for some reason.


This one is just well...wow!


This is another one that makes me think of the sky.



I am sorry I dont have the names for these images. I saved them on my laptop without the name. I will look back on the site and get them and edit the pics.

Some of the most beautiful pics IMO are from our own Universe.

And here is the link to the Hubble Telescope gallery, if anyone wants to look at more images of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and more. There is also a movie theater you can enjoy!

No problem
If you go to the drop down menu "member tool" and click on pictures it will take you to the media section. Just sign in with your ATS log in information and you can upload your pictures there. I just drag pictures to my desktop and upload them through the media section on here. When I started I had no idea how to do it either and welcome to ATS. Thanks for the link!
