What the Hubble Saw


In this striking 41 inch by 38 inch quilt,
astronomy enthusiast Judy Ross has interpreted some of
the Hubble Space Telescope's
best galactic and extragalactic vistas.

Featured in past APODs,
clockwise from the lower right are; the
Red Rectangle Nebula, the
Eskimo Nebula, the
Sleeping Beauty Galaxy,
V838 Monocerotis -
the Milky Way's most mysterious star, and
supernova remnant N49 -
the cosmic debris from an exploded star.

Of course,
have been used
to represent astronomical concepts.

And while inspired by the
images of the cosmos that she
incorporates into her quilts, Ross reports that she is
still a little daunted by the intricacies of the
Cat's Eye Nebula revealed by
the Hubble's sharp vision.
