NASA / Hubble: comparison images of galaxies?
« on: November 05, 2011, 04:46:03 AM »
Hi,

I once visited a web site which displayed/compared different kind of 'views' on the same galaxy:
- gamma radiation (only grey and black... not much to see here = boring)
- visible light (a little bit better but... still more or less boring)
- electro-magnetic combined with something else (awesome colors = WOW!!*)

*picture something like this Antennae Galaxies image:

NASA / Hubble: comparison images of galaxies?


Now I can't find that site anymore...  :(

Who knows where to find something like that?

This one? http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/images

And there's this beautiful pack of background images for Windows: http://windows.micro...idden-universe-theme

Thanks for the links! http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/images has some good images, I just can't find comparison images there?

I hadn't especially searched for that feature :-[ there are quite a few nasa.gov sites/pages that host images like that, I'd guessed there would be the comparison pages too, but I'm not sure where to find them :(

Something like this?

YES, thanks!  :Thmbsup:

Too bad they only have it for one galaxy. Lots of other great images on that site though.
