Pillars Of Creation Revisited In New Hubble Photo To Honor 25th Anniversary

NASA is paying tribute to the Pillars of Creation, just 20 years after its discovery to mark the 25th Anniversary of Hubble’s launch. This spectacular part of the Eagle Nebula captivated astronomers and classrooms when it was first photographed back in 1995. Now, with even better equipment on board than before, Hubble turned its attention once again to the famous nebula. Though it is located a seemingly impossible 6,500 light years away, Hubble captures the clouds and colors with a majestic beauty that makes them feel close enough to reach out and touch.

A lot has changed over the last 20 years, both in regards to Hubble and to the Eagle Nebula. Astronomers are now able to capture more detail than was capable in 1995, which shows an even greater image of the famous Pillars of Creation. Hubble has been refitted with better cameras, and additional types of imaging equipment over the years, taking crisper and more detailed images than before.

Over the course of 20 years, the gases which make up the Eagle Nebula have moved and changed shape, travelling at impressive speeds. Though the formation is still as easily recognizable today as it ever was, this variation in position gives astronomers some visual data that can be analyzed to further provide insight about the behavior of nebulae.

Perhaps Hubble could attempt to revisit something as beautiful as the Pillars of Creation more than once every couple decades. To much amazement we have still only photographed the smallest imaginable percentage of our near universe in the past 25 years, but NASA plans to put on a show of stunning and mind bending images in April when Hubble officially marks 25 years in orbit.
