This issue that has been raised is HST photos of H-B are not being released. There are plenty of recent photos of H-B on the web, even photos from "real" observatories. Just none from HST. There have been NONE since October, 1995. Not October 1996. That's 13 Months... There didn't seem to be a problem releasing the ONE picture then. Why not just one now?

I don't feel it is a "great cover-up". Just not proper.


Remember... Even though the Moon is smaller than the Earth, it is also further away
