NASA released today 10 fresh new space photos of galaxies and nebulas taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.
The new sharp images of the universe captured by the Hubble unveil details that the camera was not able to see before, according to the Associated Press. The new photos allow a glimpse of brilliant glows of light produced by hot gas and dust in the universe.
One of the outstanding images released on Wednesday include the NGC 6302 also called The Butterfly Nebula which resembles an ethereal butterfly.

Colorful Stars Galore Inside Globular Star Cluster Omega Centauri NASA's Hubble Space Telescope snapped this panoramic view of a colorful assortment of 100,000 stars residing in the crowded core of a giant star cluster. (Photo:NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
Galactic Wreckage in Stephan's Quintet A clash among members of a famous galaxy quintet reveals an assortment of stars across a wide color range, from young, blue stars to aging, red stars.(Photo: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
Probing the Tattered Remains of Supernova Remnant N132D The wispy, glowing, magenta structures in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image are the remains of a star 10 to 15 times the mass of the Sun that we would have seen exploding as a supernova 3,000 years ago.

Capturing the Spectacular Outflow from Markarian 817 Rings of brilliant blue stars encircle the bright, active core of this spiral galaxy, whose monster black hole is blasting material into space at 9 million miles an hour.. (Photo: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
Fingerprinting the Distant Universe Using Light from Quasar PKS 0405-123 Using a distant quasar as a cosmic flashlight, a new instrument aboard NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has begun probing the invisible, skeletal structure of the universe.(Photo: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
Gravitational Lensing in Galaxy Cluster Abell 370 The Hubble Space Telescope's newly repaired Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) has peered nearly 5 billion light-years away to resolve intricate details in the galaxy cluster Abell 370.(Photo: NASA, ESA, the Hubble SM4 ERO Team, and ST-ECF)
Probing the Last Gasps of Doomed Star Eta Carinae The signature balloon-shaped clouds of gas blown from a pair of massive stars called Eta Carinae have tantalized astronomers for decades. Eta Carinae has a volatile temperament, prone to violent outbursts over the past 200 years. (Photo: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 6217 This image of barred spiral galaxy NGC 6217 is the first image of a celestial object taken with the newly repaired Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The camera was restored to operation during the STS-125 servicing mission in May to upgrade Hubble. (Photo: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
