The Einstein Rings. The Hubble Space Telescope revealed a never-before-seen optical alignment in space. The pattern caused by the bending of light from 2 distant galaxies strung directly behind a forground massive galaxy, like 3 beads on a string.
This image of supernova remnant 0509-67.5 was made by combining data from two of NASA's Great Observatories. Optical data of SNR 0509-67.5 and its accompanying star field, taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, are composited with X-ray images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
