This Tool By NASA Tells You What Hubble Telescope Observed In Space On Your Birthday!
NASA Hubble just celebrated its 31st birthday last month on April 24 and not a lot of people are aware of this but you can actually find out what NASA Hubble observed in space on your birthday! The tool was released by NASA on Hubble’s 30th anniversary and it’s really exciting to learn about all the cosmic wonders it observed.
 
For the uninitiated, NASA’s Hubble space telescope is a large telescope in space that was launched back in 1990. It’s almost as large as a school bus in size and travels around Earth at about 5 miles per second, explains NASA. Hubble uses advanced technology and equipments to capture clear and crisp pictures of planets, stars and galaxies in our universe. For instance, check out this stunning image of a beautiful "evil eye" galaxy in the sky that was captured by Hubble.
 
From seeing stars being born to observing galaxies that are trillions of miles away from Earth, Hubble has seen it all. It explores the universe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means that Hubble captures something exciting every day of the year and that also includes your birthday. Apart from capturing shots of our universe, Hubble images have also helped scientists gain deeper insights about space.
 
Now that we know what NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is all about, let’s take a look at how exactly you can find out what Hubble saw on your birthday. Just visit this official NASA website where you will have to enter the day and month of your birthday. Then click 'submit' and that’s it! The tool will present results of Hubble’s observation on your birthday along with additional details.
 
For instance, let's enter May 15 in the tool. It shows that Hubble observed red spots on Jupiter on May 15, 2008. Cool, right? Go ahead, share with your friends and have fun with this tool!
