Spitzer is a telescope that looks at light that the Hubble telescope cannot see. Spitzer's wavelengths are in the infrared, whereas Hubble uses visible light. Spitzer's advantage is that infrared light passes through the dust that stops visible light. This means that an object filmed by Spitzer can show detail that Hubble can completly miss.

Thanks for the clarification. Spitzer has made itself known in the three years since I posted that message.

Regards & Thanks,
