Hubble Space Telescope: NASA has taken an incredible picture of space. The space agency claims that it is called the ‘cosmic keyhole’. The Hubble Space Telescope captured this remarkable image. At one time it was said that the Hubble Space Telescope was out of date. And so along came its more powerful successor, the James Webb Space Telescope. But the Hubble Space Telescope took pictures of this unprecedented ‘cosmic keyhole’ colliding with the James Webb Space Telescope.

This mysterious ‘cosmic keyhole’ is actually a reflection of a nebula. It is named as NGC 1999. This ‘cosmic keyhole’ is located near the Orion Nebula, 350 light years away from Earth.

NASA writes on its website, “This stunning image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows NGC 1999, a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion. NGC 1999 is approximately 1,350 light-years away from Earth and is located near the Orion Nebula.” is the closest major star-formation region to Earth. NGC 1999 itself is a remnant of recent star formation—it is made of debris left over from newborn star formation.”

NASA continues, “Just as fog gathers around streetlights, reflection nebulae like NGC 1999 shine through in light from an underlying source. In the case of NGC 1999 the source is the newborn star V380 Orionis above, which is visible in the center of this image. The most striking aspect of NGC 1999’s appearance is the prominent crater at its center, a black keyhole of cosmic proportions.
