NASA has not said what sort of error has hit the Earth-orbiting telescope, but space fans hope it will be back online soon.
Two of Saturn's many moons, Mimas and Enceladus, can be seen in the Hubble image.
One suggestion is the star collapsed into a black hole without producing a supernova—a phenomenon that has never been identified in such a large star before.
"The flash was so powerful that it lit up the stream like a Christmas tree," said researcher Andrew Fox.
"Hubble has given us stunning insights about the universe, from nearby planets to the farthest galaxies we have seen so far," NASA's Thomas Zurbuchen said.
"I think you can make an argument that it's the greatest scientific instrument ever built," Mike Massimino told Newsweek.
These planets are roughly the size of Jupiter, however, they are around a hundred times lighter.

The comet is only the second confirmed interstellar object to have passed through the solar system.
Researchers estimate that the explosion lasted for approximately 300,000 years.

The cluster, around 4 billion light-years from Earth, contains hundreds of individual galaxies.
Nebulae are vast interstellar clouds of dust and gas.
The image features around 15,000 galaxies, the oldest of which dates back to 11 billion years ago.
The new technique will enable astronomers to study the properties of astronomical objects in much greater detail than was possible before.
The study has proved the theory holds beyond the Milky Way.
Researchers used cameras on board the Hubble Space Telescope to capture ultraviolet and visible pictures of the nearby galaxies.
Helium is the second most common element in the universe, but more than a decade of searching for the gas in the atmospheres of exoplanets has proven unsuccessful, until now.
