INTERESTING HIDDEN FINDS IN REVAMPED HUBBLE'S FIRST NEW
Hubble images enhanced by eager amateur have more air miles than
Hubble images enhanced by Hubble image engineers alone. Read on.
Hubble ACS images are extra explored through enhancements and reveal
even more astronishing feats of deep distant viewing.
Two colliding galaxy images - named 'Mice' and 'Tadpole' - both have
ACS images site
The 'Mice' colliding galaxies have a huge superform of dim 'silent'
matter stretching outward into reaches of deep space.
The 'Mice' expands in size in faint bluish radiations when enhanced,
showing an enlarged glowing arena of activity involving the ongoing

Sundry background information from deeper space is also 'silent' in
the image, hidden in dim medias, that is, when enhanced, small objects
become larger, and new objects also appear not seen in the dark medias
of the Hubble ACS original.
For example, eight more objects are revealed in the enhanced image at
Click on either image for larger size
After a certain point in enhancements, the objects quickly begin to
blur and the background begins to fill with mottled textures. I do not
see this as the air bag stopping all further progress. When further
enhanced, into the blurr, more can be revealed, for instance tendrils
which seem to tether between galaxies indicating interraction. Click
again on the above enhanced right view and faint tendrils can be seen.
Even if you do not like my enhancements, you certainly have to admire
Hubble in the fun it's new images are going to allow the curious and
none conditional thinkers who might get into exploring the Hubble
original ACS images at leisure.
I have taken trouble to show simply what is there, missed or overlooked
by Hubble image engineers. It is possible to extract a great deal of
bonus points from these images with the new Hubble camera, as the
above illustrations amply demonstrate.
A Dss image of the 'Mice' shows
a very small object which does not lend iteself
well at all to major image enhancings, the results of enhancements are
poor at best revealing little more. However as seen at left the Dss
image does show the extended range of huff and puff and two long tails
around the two galaxies.
The Hubble ACS version is special because huge outthrusts of matter
are seen around the collision area, revealed as dim but definately
present matter radiating in optically
visible bands of the spectrum. (Optical means visible, such as daylight).
SPECULATIONS ON HOW LONG ANTENNA ARMS MAY BE FORMED
See the next image for the saga on how a long antenna arm may have
formed, involving galaxy Ngc 1512. How long galaxy tails can form,
is suggested in this next surprise striking Ngc 1512 Dss image shown
next, and explained in the Infinity
page. A different antenna forming activity is described
Caution for purists, the Infinity page (linked in the above paragraph)
contains writing not suited for rote reading or factuals, I cut loose
to a conciderable degree in speculating how such 'antenna' can form
by long distance reach via making contact with gravity waves containing
energy in excitements, rather than mass. Like I say, caution to purists,
when reading the GIC Infinity page.
The GIC 'infinity page' is the closest I have ever gotten to percieving
an interface between the fundamental conversion of energy to matter and
matter to energy on a large scale basis. I actually believe (though this
can be corrected in an instant), that I have come within one or two steps
of visually perceiving a conjecture as to how energy can convert to matter,
on a large scale basis. If not correct, at least a model may be viable in
the conjectures. I also believe that energy came first, in the form of
seething gravity waves pervading the whole of the universe, this sea of
discovery came first, before consolidations which came shortly after and
are now known as matter. All of this, can be said, in light of the above
Ngc 1512 image in which a long tail, winds around the main galaxy at a
very verry verrry long distance. Unusual. Say what.
The galaxy-rich deep field seen in the Hubble image of the
'Tadpole' colliding galaxies contains objects that are far larger
than seen in the Hubble original. The large sizes swell into view when
the Hubble original is very highly enhanced. Interracting galaxies can
be seen for instance, whose interraction is not detected by visual
inspection until the image is highly enhanced. See several examples

A yoyo galaxy, already featured in a
GIC page because of its shape, is one of the 4 subjects by Hubble's new
An earlier GIC Ugc10214 study (circ 2001)
of the Tadpole revealed information confirmed by the Hubble release ACS
photo, in that the super enhanced levels of the initial GIC study revealed
characteristics to wit a very long antenna tail which initiated abruptly
in seeming empty space, now seen clearly via the Hubble ACS view.
TEEMING DEEP SPACE BACKGROP
A great deal of subtle information was captured in the Hubble ACS view
of the Tadpole colliding galaxies, not so
much in the collision itself as in the miscellaneous backdrop of deep
space, where myriads of galaxies can be seen in small or tiny form.
These can enhance into quite a display, as demonstrated by the next
images A on the left (original) and B on the right which has been
enhanced for greater background revelation.
For example, here is a patch shown in original (left) and enhanced at
right, in which galaxies appear not seen in the original, and those
seen in the original swell to conciderable size compared to the original.

Single items clipped out and uniquely enhanced one by one can show even
more. Next is an illustration.
Next is another illustration, in which a very faint object acquires arms
and a large spiralling form. Click on the image to see what is believed
to be the Hubble capture. Practically nothing is seen until strong
enhancement is used via simple graphic editor image adjustors, to
reveal the spiral forms. I used Paint Shop Pro, ver 2.14. No alteration
other than adjustments were used, no computer generation or any artificial
techniques were used in bringing forth this hidden information in the
'silent' medias of the Hubble image.

I had trouble in going back to the image and locating the above
spiral galaxy's location. So to save you the ersatz of wasting time
hunting around trying to find it, here it is, next image, located to

local Milky Way star.

Three more enhancing samples are next shown. The point is that any part
of such an image by Hubble can be easily attenuated beyond the current

Each is as is, full size, so there are no clickthrough backup images.
Three chaotica realms have been shown in the image sequence immediately
above. Professional's enhancing techniques should be able to show a lot
more of the chaotica from earlier times.
The Hubble ACS was a stunning surprise to astronomers due to the weath
of sundry information captured from the deep space backdrop, galaxies
far distant in myriads are clearly seen.

More enhancement reveals that dimly glowing material is everywhere in the
Cone nebula and that the dark areas are not dark because nothing is there,
rather, a great wealth is there, further, what is there has very low
luminosity in the frequencies explored by the Hubble ACS camera.
Pillars such as the Cone, have been extensively studied and collected
for use in GIC. Pillars have been
identified as having a unique structure which includes a protruding
finger, and cavity opening (or horn) extending at right angles from
their base. The above Cone image shows exactly this form. It is suggested
such pillars may be the activities of a small black hole, in that they
are so coherently similarly structured across a wide range of occurences
in different pillars at different locations, including the best known
The Cone nebula was extensively studied for GIC resulting in its own
page dedicated to the Cone nebula and also its
interesting setting in roiled dense matter which reveal that the Cone
nebula's pillar has plowed through and under
a matter flow and is just now coming back
out into the open.
Next is where the Cone pillar ploughed into dense matter overhang, causing
an explosive burst of hot new stars, the roiling trail to the upper right
where the Cone pillar migrating (drifting along) to the South/west
initially began matter disturbance in earnest.
In the next enhanced black and white from Dss, the Cone is at the
bottom, and on a North/east vector above is a bright area of hot new
star births showing where the Cone pillar has ploughed into overhanging
matter. A long trail continuing from the North/east shows the incoming
path of the dense Cone pillar which caused such roil and commotion.
Next is where the Cone pillar can be seen emerging back into the open, at
the bottom of the picture.
It is possible that pillars rotate. For instance, the nest of eggs
shown next, may have been pointing nose foreward when the Cone pillar
first plowed into the dense matter overhang, triggering a burst of new
star formation at the point of entry in the dense matter overhang, and
also triggering an explosive burst of new star formations at the head
end of the pillar which was blunted by the impact when entering under
the dense overhang, and has now rotated by perhaps about 170 degrees
from before when the pillar first plowed
nose first into the dense overhang.
The nest of eggs at the top of the Cone pillar was not seen with any
clarity in earlier images, but has been starkly revealed as a breeding
ground for mighty nuclear reactor stars.
The blue curls spilling forth over the edge of the nest may in fact
be glimpses of cyclonnics caused by powerful
spinning magnetic fields inside the nest dragging matter in curved paths
out and back into the nest.

Two Integral Arms issue between colliding galaxies Ngc 1738 |
An opportunity to showcase 'integral arms' and tympani resonators'.
Integral arms are explored in depth
Tympani resonators are explored in depth
An opportunity has been taken - in light of these new ACS Hubble
images - to showcase 'integral arms' and 'tympani resonators', both
venues of extreme earnestness in GIC, the ACS Hubble image of the
'Tadpole' colliding galaxies offering an opportunity to wedge in
sidecars, information about 'tympani's' and 'integrals', because of
something spotted in the ACS Hubble image of the colliding galaxies
Hubble image engineers have chosen to call the 'Tadpole', otherwise
known as ARP 188, or also UGC 10214.
Actually, the integral arm is associated with a tiny 'tympani resonator'
hunkered in an extra active cubbyhole between two dissimilar bodies of
Next is a pullback in which the tiny resonator is seen in context of
galactic structure, the tympani's presence reveals that this area of
the galaxy has been involved in compression and compacting during the
collision procedure. For instance the inner galaxy shaft to the left,
has been blunted by punchout.
Very thin small ropes angling between one part and another in a galaxy
seeth could be integral arms, assured indications strongly suggesting
a collision element in that particular galaxy area. Next, in terms of
the conglomerate at large, integrals in the right inner core area
indicate that here, collision elements are at work.
The tiny appearing tympani is a super powerful sonic response to major
temperature differentials, where compression is also found. Tympani's
as a form of extreme temperature gradiants and compressions can even be
seen on Earth. In motion footage of
fierce smokes in fires on Earth, tympanic forms and integral ropes are
seen momentarily formed then just as swiftly vanish.
Next, ropes of volcanic smoke streaming from fumeroles are being drawn
back into the main temperature vortex.
Of significant physics, the Earth forms can feature ropes thin at one end
issuing from a small portal, except, the flow of motion is in reverse,
broader matter is being drawn into the narrow portal. This I have seen
more often than once on TV news blasts and science specials. Picture a
large genii being drawn back into the neck of a bottle. Watch for this
vacuum cleaner effect on TV news or disaster specials.
Above, a really good integral arm shown slicing like a can opener passing
through soft cheese in a galaxy sideswipe digging into another (diffuse
elliptical) galaxy is prepared in enhanced albeit blurry images and seen
in GIC here.
Specifically, obvious integral arms are seen in
Ngc 1738 colliding galaxies, and another, a sawed off arm stump seen
in Ngc 5236, is believed by GIC to
be resulted from a buzzsawing part of another galaxy sailing by and
cleaving off the arm, leaving the leaking stump.
Next, dobbler leaking from sawed off arm stump in Ngc 5236. I believe
the leaking is a current form, which moves along the inside of arms
something like a circulation fluid, in this case, because of the
abrupt cleave-off, and good telescope camera, the inner 'current'
juice can be seen dobbling out of the wound. More details are in
the above Ngc 5236 link.
In this case the current seems to be an outflow, being quickly drawn
back into the arm-thick by gravity. However at this stage I do not
really know if the dobble is leaking out as an outflow, or is matter
being drawn in like a genii being sucked into a bottle.
Another noticable demonstration of 'integral armness' is seen in the
Fish colliding galaxies array, where integral
arms seem to be linking in arcs between the two galaxy bodies comprising
However, an even better collision indicator is that the main apparent
'Tadpole' integral arm may in fact be a tympani
resonator, a sure fire quarantee that collision process results have
caused the tympani.
The tympani is very small, in terms of total galactic size, and the
Hubble image, even though detailed, is not detailed enough to reveal
if without question (or not) that this object is in fact a tympani
The best example known currently to GIC of a tympani formation resulting
from galaxies in collision is a tympanic cluster nested in compression
zones between the two galaxies comprising the collision activity of
Ngc 4038 otherwise known as the Antenna colliding
galaxies, where the cluster of tympanis have straight edges borrowed
from six sided hexagram crystal outlines.

Not easily seen until you will yourself to view the particular images
in stereo and wait in focus until an image becomes crystaline apparent,
huge tympani cavities form basic fundamental, symmetric, constructions

SPECTACULAR PRISM ROSETTE
'Omega' nebula image contains a large
prismatic plateau in it, whose presence can be better seen by slight
adjustments in color densities, and all dark areas in the Hubble
original are filled with low radiant sundry matter which can be
clearly seen by suitable enhancements.
Since the new ACS Hubble image of the Omega nebula has a fabulous 'prism'
in its display, opportunity is also gleefully taken by GIC to showcase
the GIC 'prisms' link, with prismatic effects
taking place in nebulas and even whole galaxies, both small, and large.
A probability perhaps remote is that the concentric rings seen comprising
the prism particularly the upper left quadrant are glimpsed fragments of
planetary orbital signatures, the orbital paths made by planetary objects
orbiting through dusty materials making their paths visible and exciting
the materials making the paths even more visible.
See the GIC summary evaluation page on the subject of orbital planetary
A possible magnetic cyclonnic spindle seems partially hidden in the ACS
original. Enhancing reveals not much more,
except, the tell-tale sharp edges of circle crescents are more clearly
The first above view is increased in size and still contains valid details,
showing that the Hubble ACS original is richly packed with finer details
which can be expanded by enlarged zooms and enhancements.
Another possible home of magnetic cyclonnic spindles is suggested
regards the ACS Cone nebula image.

magnetic cyclonnic spindle is the driving forces result in the Crab

THE ROYAL BELL
The royal 'bell' jutting out in the lower right in
the Cone pillar is somewhat in accord in feel and kind, to the 'tuba bell'
in the Cygnus Nebula, except the Cygnus
'bell' is very tenuous, very ephemeral in a space occupancy that has only
lacy trills of residual sundry matters from centuries ago, whereas the
Cone's 'bell' is very now, it is dense, it is in a very
travel disturbed region of Milky Way space, and is made of dense
materials extra solidly compacted by visiting compressions, yet accordingly
this 'Cone' density as a significant manifestation is in the same image
and likeness as the ultra light hooka smoke shapes of the Cygnus nebula's
Royal Bell. Well, almost the same shape.
By the way, notice how the cyclonnic circular formations on the right
in the Cygnus nebula image appear somewhat similar to forms created by
powerful spinning stars such as pulsars whose stupendous magnetic fields
rotating at high speeds with the star drag matter around in the star's
stupendous magnetic forces creating fast changing cyclonnic swirls as
for instance easily seen in the
The Crab nebula's cyclonnic spindle is easily seen, mainly because the
nebula itself is alone out in space, not enshrouded in drifting dense
nebula fields per se the Crab nebula is alone out in space. What about
similar shockwave and spinner nebulas whose location is deep inside dense
surrounding matterials, in this situation only glimpses and clues are
available seen in fragments of larger outer cyclonnics such as revealed
in plenty in the Chandra image of the Crab as linked in the above
We are looking at a phenomena of property in seeming
ordinary humdrum nebula and energetic star creating galaxy actions, in
which Royal bells (which look like the bells of tubas), are intrinsically
formed by various sonic and recurrantly re-percussional forces, plus it
seems, powerfully spinning magnetic fields.
What the ground floor cause, what the source, what the intrinsic
information speaking to us in a loud and clear language is telling
us, is yours, not us, not me, yours to determine.
CYCLONNIC SCYTHS CURL ALONG A CYGNUS LOOP EDGE
Let us take an opportunity to look at a phenomena in closer detail.
A closer look at the tip of a Cygnus Loop extension, shows several
cyclonnics scything in curls at right angles over the lip. These are
coherent dynamic artifacts, of a kind I have not yet seen addressed by
One scyth in particular (at the left in the lineup) seems an actual
arc, the others might just be wisps it is hard to say. The area
containing the scyths has been enhanced in a highlighted window,
it looks like a Hubble square frame patching
error but it is my highlighting.
It took wildly out of the box efforts to reveal the cyclonnic curls -
enhancements pushed well into the courageous zone and suddenly, there
they were - in repect to the Hubble original
which shows nothing whatever about the edge-curling cyclonnics.
The Cygnus cyclonnic curls are similar in kind to those pointed out
in the Hubble ACS image of the Cone
nebula. The Cygnus cyclonnics are either by one nucleonic driving motor,
or several, I think at least two - cannot tell in not knowing enough
about this revealing phenomena to be specific.
Another Royal Bell, if real, more crudely formed. I was caught by
surprise by this, I did not know it was there until doing a final
run through selecting 3D staging alternatives, and lo there it was,
another Royal Bell in the Cygnus Loop, this one smaller and featured
in reds and magentas. Next is the second Royal Bell, in a highlighted
The Cygnus Royal Bell is different, its cyclonnics are obvious, on a
much grander scale.
Enhancements pushed in envelopes past the hissing wall, show major
extensions of fluid flows south from the center of the Royal Bell,
hardly a thing about this seen in the Hubble
original. I do not know about you, but I find little goodies like
this facinating, because I KNOW they reveal more than current theories
allow, about dynamic forces operating in nebulas, plus super-explosion
May as well insert it here since I seem to have no other place to put it.
Long drawn out strands of diaphonous matter in nebula involve winds which
are blowing along in the general direction of the strands, in parallel.
A concequence of this curiousity is an impression that long lineal
drifts such as is seen in trailing wisps at Cygnus involve winds which
basically travel parallel to the stretching reaches of the wispies,
whereas a honeycombed pattern such as seen in the Crab nebula (next)
involve extra 'winds' which flow cross angles to the flow of motion of
the slowly drifting wisps of cigarette smoke.
CIGARETTE SMOKE IS A GOOD MODEL
Watch cigarette smoke curling up from the glowing end of a lit cigarette
and see the the wisps slowly taken in drifts by ambiant soft background
air-flow currents in the room. You will see, watching, drift formations
temporarily take on the look and feel of wisps in the Cygnus loop and
other nebula, actually almost perfect reproductions in model forms,
whereas subtle ambiant cross current background winds in the room
temporarily reproduce honeycomb patterns more like those of the Crab.
For diaphonous, think of cigarette smoke from the glowing end of the
cigarette drifting out into the air in extremely subtle wind currents
and gradually stringing apart, still coherent until the last fade
when the smoke drift suddenly dissovlves into nothing.
When more of the many different winds are blowing at right angles to
the diaphonous drifts, honycomb/cavity patterns among long strings can
develope, such as in the Crab nebula, next.

quilted together with understandably imperfect seams.
A most unusual dot has turned up in the enhancement for GIC by myself,

The red gas affluences trail off at the upper left. The poofs of cloud
themselves are moving through an area that seems very turbulent in dim,
silent, materials, and wide bands can be seen in outline beyond the
galaxy's circumpherence, indicating the galaxy is moving away from us
into rearspace gently toward the right, leaving behind recurrent poofs
which are travelling at a slower velocity than is the galaxy.
This interpretation is in reverse to astronomy conjectures which assume
the spiradic poofs are moving forth at stupendous velocities on a slanted
vector which has no immediate explanation. The reverse view is the galaxy
itself is leaving behind its ejectas in a galactic contrail, as the galaxy
travels away from us into deeper space.
A serious question is raised as to whether a red
ray, seen in a straight beam at a slight declension above the core,
and below, is a laser or image artifact. All of the Subaru's image faults
are vertical from patching, but this red ray is on its own at an entirely
different angle, and radiates in two opposed directions from the core
center. Is it an artifact of the Subaru telescope, or an artifact of the
Laser rays have been studied by GIC (myself) with
an opinion that at least some are real, with the proviso that most rays
seen are actually blasers where a ray excites matter through which it
passes and the excitement is what is visible, not the actual ray itself.
An anomalous blue ray has been seen by GIC investigations to be firing
from the Ngc 4151 galaxy, but, again,
there is a question as to whether that ray is a telescope artifact, or
an actual coherent beam from the center of the galaxy.
MUSHROOM CAPPED PLUMES
Notice something very important, that some of the ejecta is leaving the
galaxy in plumes that continue to hold shape. In the next view, three
plumes with mushroom caps have been marked in highlighted red windows.
It is clear that the red fronds are from repeated intermittant discharges,
and not a continuous stream now being torn apart by miscellaneous tensions
in the space into which the plumes are emitting. Each blast is at a
distinct different alignment, and energy level, indicating speedy
wobbling rotation of the source at galaxy center.
I could say (the same as everyone else) that the source has to be a
stupendous black hole at the galaxy core, perhaps a million or a hundred
millions times the mass of the Sun. But I do not really know this, so
am not going to say anything about the core. (Managed to get in the
words 'wobbling rotation' at the core, please notice).
The next view shows what seem to be vertical collars or rings at and
beyond the right end, in blue tones, where a drift of extended dim matter
continues forward to the right. If the vertical blue collar is real, it
is a classic tell-tale of an earlier strongly percussive nose-end
Gic's famous collection of enhanced colliding galaxy images is
here, look amongst these images for tell-tales of collisions, some
are tell-tales you have not seen before.
The stereo is not very good in this image, perhaps this is due to image
reprocessing techniques used by Subaru image engineers to fuss and muss
the digitals into a rendered picture as opposed to simply working with
digitals as intrinsically captured with stereo content mostly intact.

A problem in highly enhancing any image is that intrinsic subtle details
are lost to whitening, particularly in the key important central areas of
an image. The plus side is holdings comprising huge stores of hidden
content are revealed, making theoretical projections based on the more
dim less introspect original images foolhardy.
If, in all of the above, you have had trouble distinguishing between
me, Galaxies in Chaos (GIC), and visitastronomy.com, it is not without
reason. I am me, the author of all text and all enhanced images shown
in GIC. I use the spy code term GIC to represent Galaxies in Chaos, which
also represents myself, me, in all my glory. I hope this quick explanation
One human on a huge project can be very confusing, you have to
agree. Work with me on this. I never lie.
Me in the midst of Hubble ACS is not me intending to line myself up
alongside the shoulders of giants, it is simply me trying to humbly
explain myself in the midst of such stupendous ongoing endevours by
astronomers royal as who originally produced such useful images, which
I was able to have fun with indulging in a hobby which became in part
ways an obession, to which I have been at work for now, six and one/half
years on astronomy images, and hope, with this page named Hubble1.htm
featuring ACS images to reach a finality, hoping to finally retire from
the obsessive/compulsive grip on my brain and finally retire to live and
enjoy some life unfettered as I inexorably glide over the edge into
geriatric manhood with white hair and missing teeth, and ever enfeebling
short term memory, and even more of all of those new problems. Ahoya.
(Ahoya means as I am now, not as I was).
I expect Hubble ACS image to reveal such new and valuable worth that I
will simple not be able to keep up with it. I was almost expecting this
in the new ACS images released first time out, but, as you can see, in
the above images throughout this page, that ACS revealed more of the same,
only much better, rather than revealing information that was entirely new.
Which is why I had no choice but to do this page.
The choice of words 'Editor's Choice' is not without background. In an
earlier incarnation circ 1995 a software associate and myself contrived
- just the two of us working out of a rented two story house - to achieve
Editor's Choice for anti-virus software for that two-year period. World's
best, reported in a PC Magazine European edition published in Italian.
Editor's Choice in PC Magazine is no small potatoes. It means we excelled
against all of the biggest guns in Anti-virus software at that time. Got
the credit, but didn't make money at that time, not big enough to get the
big site licenses for anti virus. Just the two of us - holy cow how can
they do it - mediocre is better if more money is behind it and we did not
have the lucre so did it we did anyway. Big money is the only way that can
be better seems to be a philosophy pervading the whole of modern life,
and in no less way, big money validity seems to pervade modern astronomy
to this day.
I did the whole of the astronomy project, include the learning curve, on
an income concidered less than half of the poverty line for a single
individual in Canada. In other words, twice a pauper, borderline
welfare income. Did it I did anyway despite the lack of momey people
thought would be necessary to do any such project. Take heart you
poor and ungreedy who have independent ideas, where there is a will,
there is always a way.
