Make an HST Photo

Grades: High School

In the spring of 2009, we offered an elective astronomy course where students used real astronomical images to conduct original research projects. For their final exam, I asked the students to take raw images from the Hubble Space Telescope and use them to produce a beautiful color image like the ones they have seen from HST before. This final exam was an opportunity for students to create for themselves one of the most stunning images ever captured.
