Nibbling On A Nebula

  • 364 Pins

IC 342, the Hidden Galaxy, is positioned only 10 degrees above the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, so its light is heavily obscured and reddened by dust. It is 7 million light-years away but is not part of our Local Group of galaxies. Credit: Bruce Waddington

Galaxy IC 342 presents its delicate pattern of dust in this image from NASAs Spitzer. Seen in IR light, the faint starlight gives way to the glowing bright patterns of dust found throughout the galaxy's disk

After a massive star in the Milky Way exploded, it produced a shock wave of high-energy particles, seen here in purple. In the background, you can see stars as imaged by the Digital Sky Survey. Chandra captured data on the shock wave in 2003. It is estimated to be 2,400 light-years away.
