Backyard stargazers get a monthly guide to the northern hemisphere's skywatching events with
"Tonight's Sky." In June, look toward the constellation Hercules to find compact globular clusters
of stars.

"Tonight's Sky" is produced by HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope. This is
a recurring show, and you can find more episodes — and other astronomy videos — at HubbleSite.org.

Visit Tonight's Sky on HubbleSite.

NASA's Hubble Finds Universe Is Expanding Faster Than Expected

When astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered nearly 100 years ago that the universe was uniformly expanding in all directions, the finding
was a big surprise. Then, in the mid-1990s, another shocker occurred: astronomers found that the expansion rate was accelerating perhaps
due to a repulsive property called "dark energy." Now, the latest measurements of our runaway universe suggest that it is expanding faster
than astronomers thought.

NASA announced this week that the Hubble Telescope will extend its contract until July 30th, 2021. That's five more years for a telescope
that has functioned for 26 years already, since its launch in 1990. The final space shuttle flight to service Hubble was in 2009.

Hubble Dates Black Hole’s Last Big Meal






Release date: Mar 9, 2017 1:00 PM (EST)

Energetic Event 'Burped' Billowing Plasma Bubbles 6 Million Years Ago
About 6 million years ago, when our very remote ancestors began to evolve away from chimpanzees, our Milky Way
galaxy's hefty black hole was enjoying a sumptuous feast. It gulped down a huge clump of interstellar hydrogen.

Now, eons later, we see the result of the black hole feast. The black hole "burped" hot plasma that is now towering
far above and below the plane of our galaxy. These invisible bubbles, weighing the equivalent of millions of suns, are
called the Fermi Bubbles. Their energetic gamma-ray glow was first discovered in 2010 by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.
(Enrico Fermi was an Italian physicist who created the world's first nuclear reactor.)
