The NASA Hubble Space Telescope snapshot is centered on the region around the neutron star (the rightmost of the two bright stars near the center of this image) and the expanding, tattered, filamentary debris surrounding it. Hubble ' s sharp view captures the intricate details of glowing gas, shown in red.

One of the largest globular clusters in the Milky Way Galaxy was captured on camera by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

On its official Twitter page, NASA shared an image of Messier 2, which, aside from being one of the most massive, is also one of the oldest star clusters in the Milky Way with an age of 13 billion years. Fortunately for space lovers everywhere, the Messier 2 can be observed without the help of powerful telescopes.

NASA’s Hubble space telescope suffers camera glitch

NASA’s Hubble space telescope suffers camera glitch NASA’s Hubble space telescope has suffered a camera glitch after software was incorrectly loaded onto one of its key instruments. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Operation of the famous telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys has been suspended while scientists attempt to fix the problem. In a statement released Mar. 1, NASA explained that the error was detected during a “routine boot procedure” on Feb. 28.

Aside from the Monkey Head Nebula image, NASA also brought back another stunning view taken by the Hubble telescope. During its 16th anniversary in 2006, the Hubble captured the galaxy M82, also known as the NASA ' s Hubble Captures Stunning ' Celestial Gems ' In Aquarius Constellation .

"It is bright enough that it can even be seen with the naked eye when observing conditions are extremely good," NASA wrote in the tweet.

One of the most photographed celestial bodies in the night sky, the Messier 2 can be found 55,000 light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Aquarius (the Water Bearer), according to NASA's website.

It is categorized as a globular cluster, which is a "spherical group of stars all tightly bound together by gravity." Spanning 175 light-years from one end to the other, M2 consists of around 150,000 stars.

The latest Messier 2 image from the Hubble telescope shows the center of the cluster where most of its mass is concentrated. This new view was obtained with the use of visible and infrared light, showing the stars shimmering in red, blue and white.

NASA has shared a stunning image of a globular cluster in the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer). On its Twitter page, the U. S . space agency revealed an incredibly detailed look at the star cluster Messier 28.

NASA has shared a stunning image of a galaxy cluster with the designation SPT-CL J0615-5746, which can be shortened to SPT0615. First observed by the South Pole Telescope less than a decade ago, galaxy cluster SPT0615 is located about 97 light-years away in the constellation of Pictor (the

The Messier 2 is just one of 110 objects in French astronomer Charles Messier's "Catalogue of Nebulae and Star Clusters." Aside from M2, Messier also observed and cataloged the Crab Nebula (M1), the Eagle Nebula (M16), Andromeda Galaxy (M31), Triangulum Galaxy (M33) and Orion Nebula (N42), among many others.

Among the latest images captured by the Hubble telescope was an incredibly detailed view of Messier 11 or the Wild Duck Cluster. The celestial object, which got its name from the "V" formation of its brightest stars, is located in the southern constellation of Scutum (The Shield) and is estimated to have formed about 220 million years ago.

Unlike Messier 2, Messier 11 is an open star cluster, which typically has fewer and younger stars. It also has a shorter lifespan compared to globular clusters, and scientists believe that M11 will disperse completely in several million years.
