Here’s What NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope Saw On Your Birthday!

Astrophysicist and Astronomer, Carl Sagan once famously said, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

Ever wondered what incredible spectacle happened in the cosmos on your birthday? Now you can see for yourself because NASA recently released a collection of amazing images taken with its Hubble Space Telescope to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its launch.

The telescope, launched on April 24, 1990, has been snapping images of the universe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For three decades, it has been producing some iconic images that have glazed the front pages of newspapers and magazines.

Here are a few of them. You’re lucky if your birthday fell on one of these dates.

Here’s a whole list of iconic images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope.

“Hubble’s keen eye sees ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared light, and delivers its wide range of discoveries through images and spectroscopy. The telescope has investigated our own solar system and characterized the atmospheres of planets around other suns. It has shown us how stars form, live out their lives, and die,” Hubble’s website reads.

In short, there’s bound to be something amazing caught on your birthday.
