Inside the Crab Nebula
A small peek inside NGC 1952, the Crab Nebula, the remnants of a massive supernova that was bright enough to be seen during the day by Chinese Observers in 1054. What's lefts are intricate filaments surrounding the wispy Crab Pulsar which is estimated to be 6,300 light years away. The image was obtained from data taken from the Hubble ESO/ST-ECF archive. Four separate filters (F502N, F547M, F656N, and F673N) were combined using the Fits Liberator and Adobe Photoshop CS to give the final color image.
