Frosty white water ice clouds and swirling orange dust storms above a vivid rusty landscape reveal Mars as a dynamic planet in this sharpest view ever obtained by an Earth-based telescope. The image was taken when Mars was approximately 43 million miles from Earth. Especially striking is the large amount of seasonal dust storm activity seen in this image. One large storm system is churning high above the northern polar cap [top of image], and a smaller dust storm cloud can be seen nearby. Another large duststorm is spilling out of the giant Hellas impact basin in the Southern Hemisphere (lower right).

Cone Nebula (NGC 2264) - so named because in ground-based images it has a conical shape - this monstrous pillar resides in a turbulent star-forming region.The nebula is located about 800 parsecs or 2,600 light-years away from Earth.The image shows the upper 2.5 light-years of the Cone, a height that equals 23 million roundtrips to the Moon. The entire pillar is seven light-years long.

Io( the Jupiters satellite) is roughly the size of Earths moon but 2, 000 times farther away. In the images, Io appears to be skimming Jupiters cloud tops, but its actually 310, 000 miles (500, 000 kilometers) away. Io zips around Jupiter in 1.8 days, whereas the moon circles Earth every 28 days.The conspicuous black spot on Jupiter is Ios shadow and is about the size of the moon itself (2, 262 miles or 3, 640 kilometers across). This shadow sails across the face of Jupiter at 38, 000 mph (17 kilometers per second).

NGC 4013 is a spiral galaxy, similar to our Milky Way, lying some 55 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Ursa Major.The picture reveals exquisite detail huge clouds of dust and gas extending along, as well as far above, the galaxys main disk.Even at 55 million light-years, the galaxy is larger than Hubbles field of view, and the image shows only a little more than half of the object, albeit with unprecedented detail.

The Eagle Nebula (also known as Messier Object 16, M16 or NGC 6611) is a young open cluster of stars in the Serpens Cauda constellation.this object is actually a billowing tower of cold gas and dust rising from a stellar nursery called the Eagle Nebula. The soaring tower is 9.5 light-years or about 90 trillion kilometres high, about twice the distance from our Sun to the next nearest star.

The Whirlpool Galaxy (also known as Spiral Galaxy M51, Messier Object 51, Messier 51, M51, or NGC 5194) is a classic spiral galaxy located in the Canes Venatici constellation.It is one of the brightest, most compelling galaxies in the sky, visible with binoculars. The galaxy is less than 37 million light years away from Earth some measurements put the distance at only 15 million.Its companion galaxy is NGC 5195.

------
Located about 130 million light-years away, NGC 4650A is one of only 100 known polar-ring galaxies. Their unusual disk-ring structure is not yet understood fully. One possibility is that polar rings are the remnants of colossal collisions between two galaxies sometime in the distant past, probably at least 1 billion years ago. What is left of one galaxy has become the rotating inner disk of old red stars in the center.

The star-forming region, catalogued as N11B lies in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), located only 160,000 light-years from Earth. With its high resolution, the Hubble Space Telescope is able to view details of star formation in the LMC. It is a subregion within a larger area of star formation called N11. N11 is the second largest star-forming region in LMC.
