Take a look through the Chromoscope!

On this site you start out with a 360 degree image of the Earth's night sky. You move around using the mouse and you can zoom in and out. (I've zoomed in a bit on Orion in the image above.) Then the fun begins: You can look at the sky in different frequency ranges -- from radio to gamma ray. Very nice: http://www.chromoscope.net/

  1. Wow, that's awesome, thanks for sharing it!

    I am curious about the swirly pattern in the x-ray image, I mean the dark streaks that stand out but there also seems to be a similar pattern in a darker shade of green too. I wonder if that is how things are and if so why or if that is an artifact of the imaging equipment...

  2. Check out the instruction video. It explains the satellite did not collect x-ray data at the time.

    Cool imaging though.
