Hubble Observation - You Decide!

Via the @sciencemuseum on twitter I discovered that the Hubble Space Telescope is going to let people around the world vote on the next observation target. This is a pretty amazing opportunity to have a say and the close for votes is March 1 with the image released during the 100 Hours of Astronomy global event. In true Oscar style... the nominations are:

  • NGC 6634 - star forming region;
  • NGC 6072 - a planetary nebula;
  • NGC 40 - a planetary nebula;
  • NGC 5172 - spiral galaxy;
  • NGC 4289 - edge-on spiral galaxy;
  • Arp 274 - interacting Galaxies.
