Hubblecast HD 14 Feb 2018, 15:00 UTC Our eyes detect only visible light, but on board Hubble are a variety of instruments that together detect many different wavelengths of light. This means that Hubble is able to observe galaxies over a wide range of wavelengths to reveal features that would otherwise remain invisible to our eyes.

StarDate Online 13 Feb 2018, 06:00 UTC Our home galaxy, the Milky Way, is on the move. It’s being pulled by the gravity of other galaxies, which are tugging in several directions.
StarDate Online 12 Feb 2018, 06:00 UTC Not many people seek out dark skies on cold winter nights — they’re not prime skywatching time for much of anyone. But those who do find dark skies get a treat: a nice display of the Milky Way. It arcs high overhead in early to mid evening right now. It’s anchored in the southeast by Sirius, the night sky’s brightest star. It then climbs high overhead to the “horns” of Taurus, then drops toward M-shaped Cassiopeia in the north, and the tail of Cygnus, the swan, in the northwest.
StarDate Online 11 Feb 2018, 06:00 UTC Many wonderful astronomical objects are visible to the eye alone — from the Moon to the Andromeda Galaxy. But binoculars add a whole new layer to our view of the universe. They’re especially good at revealing star clusters — families of stars that are packed close together. An example is M48. It’s in the southeast this evening, well to the left of sparkling Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky.
