GREENBELT, Md., Sept. 26 (UPI) -- A new image captured by Hubble is offering viewers a glimpse of the future of our sun. Recently, the space telescope spotted a dying white dwarf shedding its stellar layers.
No longer capable of fusion, the star has collapsed in on itself, forming a dense and dormant stellar core. Despite being out of fuel, the core remains extremely hot. It's one of the hottest white dwarfs in our galaxy, boasting a surface temperature of 360,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
