Heritage Montage

A vibrant celestial photo album of some of NASA/ESA Hubble SpaceTelescope's most stunning views of the universe is being unveiled today on the Internet. Called the Hubble Heritage Program, this technicolor gallery is being assembled by a team of astronomers at Hubble's science operations center, the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md. The four images released today are (top row, left to right) spiral galaxy NGC 7742 and Saturn, and (bottom row, left to right) the Sagittarius Star Cloud and the Bubble Nebula.
