    Witness a spectacular event 11 a.m. April 25 at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, when two new mural-sized images taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope will be unveiled to the public. The stunning photographs of the well-known spiral galaxy M51 and an eerie-looking tower of gas in the Eagle Nebula commemorate Hubble's 15 years of viewing the heavens. The images will be unveiled by Marilyn Schlack, president of KVCC, and Mary Tyler, founding donor of the Museum's Challenger Learning Center, established in memory of her parents, Alvin and Emily Little. The celebration includes free showings of "Hubble Vision 2" in the planetarium at 10 a.m., 11:15 a.m., and 1 p.m. (if necessary).
