Pretty in pink!

If you haven't figured it out by now, I love space. It's a pretty well known fact; space just fascinates me. I love looking at Hubble images and just seeing the universe in ways I will never physically be able to. I especially love space images that are pink. (I'm a girl, what can I say?) I know that they are pink because of the filters used, (most images that are pink is due to filters to show hydrogen emission), but I love the coloring nonetheless. This post is a tribute to "pretty in pink" space pictures.
