In 1969 they landed on the Moon on my birthday. You can't get cooler than that!

On July 16 in 2006

Galaxy ESO 239-2

ESO 239-2 is the result of a cosmic collision between galaxies that will eventually result in a larger "elliptical" galaxy. The intermediate stage captured here shows a galaxy with long tails of dust and gas that envelope the galaxy's core.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA has created a website where you can enter your birthday, and it will show what Hubble was looking at on that same day (not same year).

Here's mine. It was viewing galaxy clusters, which it does a lot of, I think.

Ugh! Apologies to @fresh_42 . I should have checked to see if a thread on this has already been created!
