About this image

In this illustration, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is looking along the paths of NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft as they journey through the solar system and into interstellar space.

Hubble is gazing at two sight lines (the twin cone-shaped features) along each spacecraft's path. The telescope's goal is to help astronomers map interstellar structure along each spacecraft's star-bound route. Each sight line stretches several light-years to nearby stars.
