HST Photographs Center of Our Galaxy

Hey Space Placers!

Look at this incredible picture of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy taken by Hubble Space Telescope (HST).

Milky Way Nuclear Star Cluster

Isn't it beautiful? There are 500,000 stars crammed into an area of space that would be the equivalent of the distance from our Sun to the Alpha Centauri system, a little over 4 light years away.

To learn even more about the Milky Way's nuclear star cluster and Hubble, join astronomers and scientists during a live Hubble Hangout discussion at 3pm EDT on Thurs., March 31 at

Here is the full story behind the picture.
