Pillars of Creation (Click to enlarge)

In just a few months NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope will celebrate its 25th anniversary of taking awe-inspiring, breathtaking photos of parts of our Universe that we had no idea even know existed before we laid eyes upon these images.

As part of its celebration NASA pointed Hubble back towards the Pillars of Creation and took some amazing new high-definition photos of the Pillars that are even more stunning than the original.

The so-called “Pillars of Creation” is probably tied with Hubble Ultra Deep Field photo as one of the most famous photos ever taken by the Hubble Telescope.

Last year for Hubble’s 24th anniversary NASA celebrated by releasing some amazing photos of the Monkey Head Nebula.
