Another important discovery is the mapping of the transformation of the star CRL 618, which is similar to our Sun, into planetary nebulae. The observation of this cosmic evolution provides a better understanding of the formation of the planetary nebulae, and thus an opportunity to test theories proposed in relation with them.
The spectacular aurora which surrounds Jupiter has always baffled the astronomers. Together with the Cassini Mission, HST has studied this aurora and the influence of solar winds on it.
The images of the Stephan's Quintet , a group of galaxies seen in the image above, have produced excellent information on the evolution of stars and star clusters and dwarf galaxies.
In 1994, Hubble presented the scientific world with an excellent view of the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashing into Jupiter.
The HST has discovered the presence of more massive objects outside the orbit of Pluto, and two smaller moons which revolve round Pluto.
