As part of the International Year of Astronomy, the Hubble Telescope will turn and image a celestial object, never before seen in such detail… and you get to vote for which one! Go to youdecide.hubblesite.org and vote for the one you’d like to see the most. (Also you can enter to win a 16×20″ print of the new image, woo!)
“Hubble’s Next Discovery — You Decide” is part of the International Year of Astronomy (IYA), the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s observations. People around the world can vote to select the next object the Hubble Space Telescope will view. Choose from a list of objects Hubble has never observed before and enter a drawing for one of 100 new Hubble pictures of the winning object. The winning image will be released between April 2 and 5, during the IYA’s 100 Hours of Astronomy, a global astronomy event geared toward encouraging as many people as possible to experience the night sky. Vote by March 1 to swing Hubble toward your favorite target.
