NASA’s infrared-ray Hubble Space Telescope recorded images of the open star cluster NGC 6530 covered in fog.
The Hubble Space Telescope, which was carried to orbit around the Earth by the space shuttle Discovery in 1990 and will now be replaced by James Webb, is celebrating its 32nd anniversary.
Hubble Space Telescope used by NASA and the European Space Agency; has so far confirmed the existence of thousands of galaxies, stars, planets, and other celestial bodies.
Viewed the new star cluster
The Hubble Space Telescope has recorded a new image of NGC 6530, located 4,350 light-years from Earth. NGC 6530, encompassing the giant star cluster, is located within the Lagoon Nebula.

As with every discovery, astronomers made use of the Hubble Telescope’s Advanced Survey Camera (ACS) for NGC 6530.
The Hubble telescope, which has been on active duty for more than 32 years, will complete its mission between 2030 and 2040 and will fall to Earth. Hubble will now be completely replaced by the James Webb Space Telescope.
