Three Different Observatories Team Up To Provide One of The Coolest Photos of Our Own Galactic Center
November 10, 2009
In celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009, NASA's Great Observatories — the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — have collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy.
Credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/UMass/D. Wang et al.; Optical: NASA/ESA/STScI/D.Wang et al.; IR: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSC/S.Stolovy
In this spectacular image, observations using infrared light and X-ray light see through the obscuring dust and reveal the intense activity near the galactic core. Note that the center of the galaxy is located within the bright white region to the upper middle of the image (this is also Sagitarrius A). In the non rotated image, the entire image width covers about one-half a degree, about the same angular width as the full moon.
Each telescope's contribution is presented in a different color:
Yellow represents the near-infrared observations of Hubble. They outline the energetic regions where stars are being born as well as reveal hundreds of thousands of stars.
Red represents the infrared observations of Spitzer. The radiation and winds from stars create glowing dust clouds that exhibit complex structures from compact, spherical globules to long, stringy filaments.
Blue and violet represents the X-ray observations of Chandra. X-rays are emitted by gas heated to millions of degrees by stellar explosions and by outflows from the supermassive black hole in the galaxy's center. The bright blue blob on the left side of the full field image is emission from a double star system containing either a neutron star or a black hole.

Every grey hair is proof you survived.
Art by Liberal Jane
Digital illustration of the back of a brown fem with a long ponytail. Their hair is black with grey streaks, and they’re wearing a beige 2-piece jumpsuit that has fringe. The back of their jacket reads ‘every grey hair is proof you survived.’ The background is a desert scene.

The Dark Nebula of the Constellation of Chamaeleon
Ordinarily, the cloud structures in this image would appear as dark clouds set against the stars behind, giving rise to what is known as dark nebula, it is simply gas and dust thrown into space from stars over the billions of years.
However, in this image, which is a 4 hour exposure, the light and near infra red glow has created a brown like colour for the clouds, with a small amount of reflective nebula around the bright blue B type star β Chamaeleontis.
All the dust and gas and stars are within our galaxy, with the exception of a white rugby ball shape which can be seen just below β Chamaeleontis. This is in fact another galaxy IC 3104, an irregular galaxy thought to be around 19.5 million light years from us.
