Multicolor infrared (red/green/blue=24/8/4 micro-meter, SPITZER Space Telescope, Wachter et al., 2007) and radio (VLA, Kim & Koo 2002) image of the environment of SGR 1806-20 / C1 1806-20 (located at the red spot with the black cross). Cyan contours represent radio emission. The dotted line indicates the radio nebula G10.0−0.3 as given by Kulkarni et al. (1994). The white contours illustrate the TeV gamma ray source shown in Fig. 3. (credit: H.E.S.S. collaboration)
TeVCat sky map of H.E.S.S.-discovered gamma ray sources, as of late August 2012. The colors indicates the likely nature of sources: Supernova remnants (green), pulsar wind nebulae (violet), binaries (yellow), star cluster/star forming regions (blue), unidentified (grey), starburst galaxy (orange), active galactic nucleus (red).

In this image, an expanding shell of debris called SNR is left behind after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way. Multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays - NASA/CXC/SAO
A still image from the first movie captured by the IRIS solar observatory, NASA's newest solar observatory, has taken its first photos of the lowest layers of the solar atmosphere, a mysterious and little-understood region of the sun
