On July 4-5, 2005, Hubble recorded the impact of a projectile that was launched by the spacecraft Deep Impact on a comet.
Hubble captured four of Saturn's largest moons passing in front of the planet at the same time. Titan is the orange moon casting the northern most shadow. Near the ring plane is Mimas. Farther to the left are the bright moon Dione and the fainter moon Enceladus.

A solar eclipse is rare on Earth, but this photo shows three occurring at the same time on Jupiter. In this Hubble image, three of Jupiter's 16 confirmed moons cast shadows that create black spots. From left to right, they are cast by Ganymede, Io and Callisto. Two of the moons are also visible in this image. Io is the white spot toward the center of the planet; Ganymede is the blue spot in the upper right. Callisto is outside the frame.
