X-Ray View Of The Crab Nebula
In 1054 AD, Chinese astronomers and others around the world noticed a new bright object in the sky. This “new star” was, in fact, the supernova explosion that created what is now called the Crab Nebula. At the center of the Crab Nebula is an extremely dense, rapidly rotating neutron star left behind by the explosion. The neutron star, also known as a pulsar, is spewing out a blizzard of high-energy particles, producing the expanding X-ray nebula seen by Chandra. In this new image, lower-energy X-rays from Chandra are red, medium energy X-rays are green, and the highest-energy X-rays are blue.

Messier 94
Messier 94, or NGC 4736, is a spiral galaxy located about 17 million light years away towards the constellation Canes Venatici. It is composed of both an inner ring surrounding the central core and two spiral arms that sometimes appear a single ring.
The inner ring is called a “starburst ring” due to the rapid star formation occurring in the region. Here, the star formation may be a result of the oval shape of the galaxy, although the phenomenon can also be caused by galactic interactions. This image shows the galaxy in ultraviolet light.
