2011 Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar

 Every day until Sunday, December 25, this page will present one new image of our universe from NASA’s Hubble telescope. Be sure to bookmark this calendar and come back every day until the 25th, or follow @in_focus on Twitter, or me on Google+, for daily updates. I hope you enjoy these amazing and awe-inspiring images and the efforts of the science teams who have brought them to Earth.

Above: In celebration of the 21st anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope’s deployment into space, astronomers at the Space Telescope Science Institute pointed Hubble’s eye to an especially photogenic group of interacting galaxies called Arp 273. Pictured here is the larger of the two galaxies, known as UGC 1810.

Continuing with a holiday tradition he started a few years ago, Alan Taylor presents his 2011 Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar. Check out the full calendar at In Focus
