Top 10 Hubble images

No 8. The Butterfly in NGC 6302

As beautiful it might look, it’s not. The wings actually are heated gases, at twenty thousand degrees Celsius, moving at a rate of 950 thousand kilometers per hour. A dying star is responsible for this pretty looking mess, a star that was as 5 times as heavy as our Sun. With the estimated temperature of the exploding star to be around 220 thousand degrees Celsius, it is one of the hottest places in our Milky Way.

No 7. Bruised Jupiter

This image by Hubble shows a post-collision Jupiter after it was hit by Shoemaker-Levy comet in 1994. This image tells how big the planet really is and how important its role is to preserving life on earth.
