Supernova Remnant Menagerie


Video: Supernova Remnant Menagerie

Running Time: 8 seconds

The Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was used to obtain images of a violent and chaotic-looking mass of gas and dust known as N 63A. The dissolve sequence builds from a Spitzer telescope infrared image of the area, adding the Chandra X-ray image, and the Hubble visible-light images, which dissolves to the Hubble composite of the beautiful supernova remnant.
