    Hubble’s field of view is 202 arc seconds, so about 3.2 million observations would be enough to cover the sky. This got me curious, it turns out Hubble has made about 1.4 million observations since it was launched in 1990. Half way there? Not quite… (1/2)

    Some observations take longer than others, and some parts of the sky are more interesting. So what HAS hubble seen? I did some coding to generate these images of each quadrant of the sky. Can see ecliptic, galactic plane, Magellanic clouds, Andromeda. (2/2)..
