The Advent of Hubble

The Big Picture website is once again doing a Hubble Advent calendar: releasing a new picture from the great observatory once each day this month until Christmas. It’s a clever idea, and should get everyone clicking over there first thing to see what beauty he has chosen every day. His first choice: a butterfly-shaped planetary nebula image taken late last year. If he keeps this up, you’ll have two dozen gorgeous shots to drool over!
