Kepler's Supernova Remnant: Views from Chandra, Hubble, and Spitzer
These images represent views of Kepler's supernova remnant taken in X-rays, visible light, and infrared radiation.
Each top panel shows the entire remnant. Each colour in this image represents a different region of the electromagnetic spectrum, from X-rays to infrared light. The X-ray and infrared data cannot be seen with the human eye. Astronomers have color-coded those data so they can be seen in these images.
