We all hate to see the summer end (coming soon in the northern hemisphere) but before the September equinox arrives, the HubbleSite team is making the most of the last few days of summer by giving away copies of a few iconic images taken by the venerable Hubble Space Telescope. The End-of-Summer Hubble Picture Giveaway is a random drawing accessible via HubbleSite’s Facebook page. Three winners per day, selected randomly from Sept. 4-16 will receive one 16×20 print of one of three images: Mystic Mountain (as seen below), The Helix Nebula, or Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1300.
HubbleSite runs these drawings periodically on its Facebook page, but for readers of Universe Today, they are we’re offering an extra chance to win for users who enter a promo code in the appropriate field!
The code for Universe Today readers is UNIVTDAY.
So, enter every day — and don’t forget you can enter twice a day by using the special code for UT readers.
Thanks to the HubbleSite Facebook team!
Hubble’s ‘Mystic Mountain’ shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.
