About this image

This plot shows the similarity of X-ray and ultraviolet light emissions from the B-emission star gamma Cassiopeiae on March 14-15, 1996. The UV emission from the HST has been inverted and rescaled to emphasize its correspondence with the slow component of the variations of the X-ray emission.
