Cosmic bamboo in BLUE!! ;D ;D


Actually, the reason for that is that the hubbel uses different filters than SDSS does.  The bamboo pattern is actually a satelite moving across the field while the camera is on.  Thatt's light reflected off its solar panels!

This is a star and a photo effect, the black corner is probably a really close star that the zoo team cut out.

Hello Ameobea and welcome to the Zoo.  Actually that image if from Stripe 82 of the SDSS.  Hubble doesn't take pictures of satellites because it flies over them all.  No solar panels are involved here, SDSS doesn't have solar panels and it is in New Mexico.
Happy hunting  ;D

 *and find lots of asteroids  ;D

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense, I forgot how hubble actually was a satelite!

I am not sure if this is an image artifact or something else, any hints?

Hubble is in a low Earth orbit. There are lots of satellites above it.  :)
