One of NASA's biggest achievements was the launch of the Hubble telescope. The tool has allowed us to see so much farther and deeper into our galaxy and beyond, with incredible images coming in every day. You can actually check out what the Hubble saw on your birthday.
NASA's online resource named "What Did Hubble See on Your Birthday?" shows you exactly what the question asks. Guests of the site can enter their birth date (month and day) and see an image drawn from Hubble's incredible repository.
Visitors can find infrared photos of faraway galaxies, up-close views of planets within our solar system, hundreds of millions of stars across our neighboring galaxies, and much more.
The resource shares that the Hubble telescope "explores the universe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." This means that every day will show you something incredible.
The Hubble Space Telescope is a tool that first went into use to make discoveries beyond our skies back in 1990 and it remains in use to this day.
Different dates lead to very different views. You can gaze upon red galaxies that were formed around 600 million years after the big bang occurred or stars in the galactic core that lie 26,000 light-years away from Earth.
There is so much to discover, and to be able to say that Hubble was gazing into the twinkling beauty of a supernova on your birthday is definitely worth sharing.
From nebulas to our surrounding galaxies to comets darting across space, you are sure to be surprised with what your personal birth date space views are.
You could also check out what was seen during other special dates in your life, from anniversaries to graduation dates.
You can visit the NASA website here to find out what was beyond our atmosphere during your special day. You can also share the photo with your friends!
Prepare to be amazed by the immense vastness of space. It really does go on and on forever.
