10 latest images of space captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope

The US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) frequently shares breathtaking pictures of the universe captured by its Hubble Space Telescope. Here is a look at 10 stunning latest pics shared by NASA.

This captivating image shows the Veil Nebula and shows its delicate filamentary structures made of ionised gas.

This stunning image captures the formation of a star in the star-forming region known as IRAS 16562-3959, which lies within the constellation Scorpius.

Captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, this image features the dying star CW Leonis engulfed in dusty clouds of carbon. It is the closest carbon star at a distance of 400 light-years from Earth.

This image shows the Carina Nebula, a massive cloud of gas and dust, home to thousands of stars. 

This mesmerising image shows the CB 130-3, a dense core of gas and dust, situated in the constellation Serpens.

This image shows the early stages of the formation of a star, which is over 9,000 light-years away in the constellation Taurus.

This close-up image captures the spiral galaxy NGC 2903 captured by Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). 

This image shows the star AG Carinae in its final stage and captures dust bubbles and gas emitted by it.

This striking image captures the rare celestial phenomenon known as a Herbig-Haro object wherein newly-formed stars expel narrow jets of rapidly moving ionised gas.

This gorgeous image shows the global cluster of stars called NGC 6717, which lies more than 20,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius.
