Lovingly called Hubble's Hidden Treasures by NASA, the page showcases some of the 3,000 finds submitted by the public who went through some of the space telescope's never-before-seen images.

Hubble has made over a million observations since launch, but only a small proportion are attractive images -- and an even smaller number are ever actually seen by anyone outside the small groups of scientists that publish them. But the vast amount of data in the archive means that there are still many hundreds of beautiful images scattered among the valuable, but visually unattractive, scientific data that have never been enjoyed by the public.
