Hubble (accidentally) takes a step into the art field

You know those mornings where even coffee can’t bring focus to your scattered brain? Even the Hubble space telescope has those days. But the result is probably a lot prettier, and a bit more pleasant.

When taking photographs in space, the Hubble uses Fine Guidance Sensors to lock on to a specific, fixed star in order to stabilize and adapt to constant movement. But when the Hubble was taking a photograph of the NGC 288 globular cluster, the FGS didn’t quite work as intended. NASA has speculated that the system locked onto a different star, causing the brightly colored streaks in the image.

If only all of our human mistakes turned into interesting, and beautiful pieces of art.
