A field of stars is released – NASA on its Instagram recently uploaded a beautiful image of the field of stars. The picture shows a bright purple center of the galaxy giving way to jets and clouds of orange, blue, red, yellow-green, and black space and it surrounds the galaxy.
With the collective efforts of NASA Hubble and NASA Chandra X-Ray using the Spitzer Space Telescope, a picture captured twelve million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major.
Check out the image below:
The image came into existence when Hubble captured the Hydrogen gas at around 18,000 Celsius in orange, and, in visible light, it appeared in yellow-green. Chandra captured the gas that heated to millions of degrees in X-ray. Spitzer captured the cool gas and dust seen here in infrared light captured in red.
These fields of stars are likely to help spread carbon and oxygen across the universe.
