Welx Back Hubble!

I didn't know I was missing you until I saw these...
Thanks for coming back and bringing us these great images (via)

Above: Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302

Above: Stars Bursting to Life in Chaotic Carina Nebula

These two images of a huge pillar of star birth demonstrate how observations taken in visible (top) and in infrared light (bottom) by Hubble reveal dramatically different and complementary views of an object.

Composed of gas and dust, the pillar resides in a tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina.
