HST 25th Anniversary Events-VOTE For Your FAVE HST Photos

Hey Space Placers!

FINALLY I think winter has gasped its last cold breath for us on the US East Coast. I am hoping skies will clear so I can get the telescope and camera out.

In the meantime NASA is holding celebrations this month leading up to the 25th anniversary (hard to believe it's been that long) of the launching of Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Yes, HST turns 25 next month and is still going strong. It is not known how long HST will continue to operate but it is a good bet that NASA and its partners will keep the space telescope going as long as they can before they have to deorbit HST for safety.

Check out this listing of events from NASA. There will be more next month.

Be sure to vote for your favorite HST photo! You have until April 6th. This fun event mimics March Madness in NCAA Basketball by having brackets and HST photos in "playoffs" against each other - brilliant idea.
