The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is 23 years old and in celebration it has sent us some truly beautiful new images, especially of the Horsehead Nebula in the Orion constellation. The new image is notable for its amazing clarity and shows in great detail the structures of the nebula which were previously obscured by stellar dust. The Horsehead Nebula is one of the most recognizable celestial features and the Hubble has revealed its beauty in a whole new light.
