In its 15 years of viewing the sky, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken more than 700,000 exposures and probed more than 22,000 celestial targets as represented by the different colored dots in this map of the sky. All data from April 1990 through March 2005 are represented here. Solar system objects are shown as yellow dots; stars are blue; star clusters are orange; nebulae are green; galaxies are red; galaxy clusters are pink; and other targets such as the Hubble Ultra Deep Field and the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey are the white dots.
