The Crab Nebula, the result of a bright supernova explosion seen by Chinese and other astronomers in the year 1054, is 6,500 light-years from Earth. At its center is a super-dense neutron star, rotating once every 33 milliseconds, shooting out rotating lighthouse-like beams of radio waves and light -- a pulsar (the bright dot at image center). The nebula's intricate shape is caused by a complex interplay of the pulsar, a fast-moving wind of particles coming from the pulsar, and material originally ejected by the supernova explosion and by the star itself before the explosion.

This composite image of the Crab Nebula, a supernova remnant, was assembled by combining data from five telescopes spanning nearly the entire breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum: the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array, the Spitzer Space Telescope, the Hubble Space Telescope, the XMM-Newton Observatory, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory.

Crab Nebula in technicolor! This new composite view combines data from five different telescopes, showing the celestial object in multiple kinds of light.

Swipe to explore the wavelengths! The view starts with a composite image of the Crab Nebula, a supernova remnant that was assembled by combining data from five telescopes spanning nearly the entire breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum: the Very Large Array, the Spitzer Space Telescope, the Hubble Space Telescope, the XMM-Newton Observatory, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
It then moves to the red-colored radio-light view that shows how a neutron star’s fierce “wind” of charged particles from the central neutron star energized the nebula, causing it to emit the radio waves.
The yellow-colored infrared image includes the glow of dust particles absorbing ultraviolet and visible light.
The green-colored Hubble visible-light image offers a very sharp view of hot filamentary structures that permeate this nebula.
The blue-colored ultraviolet image and the purple-colored X-ray image shows the effect of an energetic cloud of electrons driven by a rapidly rotating neutron star at the center of the nebula.

Dear Mom, we are having a blast at camp! We went rock climbing, night hiking and saw the #crabnebula

This is a mosaic image, one of the largest ever taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of the Crab Nebula, a six-light-year-wide expanding remnant of a star's supernova explosion. Japanese and Chinese astronomers recorded this violent event nearly 1,000 years ago in 1054, as did, almost certainly, Native Americans. 😎 The orange filaments are the tattered remains of the star and consist mostly of hydrogen. The rapidly spinning neutron star embedded in the center of the nebula is the dynamo powering the nebula's eerie interior bluish glow. -

Cracking the Crab Nebula 🦀 Astronomers have produced a highly detailed image of the Crab Nebula, by combining data from telescopes spanning nearly the entire breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves seen by the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) to the powerful X-ray glow as seen by the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory. And, in between that range of wavelengths, the Hubble Space Telescope's crisp visible-light view, and the infrared perspective of the Spitzer Space Telescope.The Crab Nebula, the result of a bright supernova explosion seen by Chinese and other astronomers in the year 1054, is 6,500 light-years from Earth. At its center is a super-dense neutron star, rotating once every 33 milliseconds, shooting out rotating lighthouse-like beams of radio waves and light -- a pulsar (the bright dot at image center). The nebula's intricate shape is caused by a complex interplay of the pulsar, a fast-moving wind of particles coming from the pulsar, and material originally ejected by the supernova explosion and by the star itself before the explosion. This image combines data from five different telescopes: the VLA (radio) in red; Spitzer Space Telescope (infrared) in yellow; Hubble Space Telescope (visible) in green; XMM-Newton (ultraviolet) in blue; and Chandra X-ray Observatory (X-ray) in purple.

IM IN LOVE! ❤️ Here is the first of what will probably be many posts featuring my new #vapidlacquer #polishes This one is #crabnebula. Gorgeous in the shade and in the sun. Look at that #colorshift! Love love love! Thank you @aprilaura for introducing me to this! #buyallthevapids #nailsofinstagram #addictedtopolish

La #NebulosadelCangrejo (también conocida como M1, NGC 1952, Taurus A y Taurus X-1) es un resto de supernova de tipo plerión. Fue observada por primera vez en el año 1054  por astrónomos #Chinos #Arabes y también los antiguos habitantes de #MascotaJalisco lo dejaron claramente registrado en petroglifos. Determinando el origen de la expansión se dedujo que la nebulosa se debía haber formado unos 900 años atrás. Existen documentos históricos que revelan que una nueva estrella suficientemente brillante como para ser visible a la luz del día fue observada en la misma región del cielo por astrónomos chinos y árabes en 1054. Es posible que la "nueva estrella" brillante fuera observada por los anasazi y registrada en petroglifos.​ Dada su gran distancia y su carácter efímero, esta "nueva estrella" observada por chinos y árabes solo pudo haber sido una supernova, una enorme estrella en plena explosión, que una vez ha agotado su fuente de energía por medio de fusión nuclear, se colapsa sobre sí misma.

Análisis recientes de estos documentos históricos han encontrado que la supernova que creó la nebulosa del Cangrejo probablemente ocurrió en abril o principios de mayo de 1054, alcanzando su máximo brillo con una magnitud aparente entre −7 y −4,5 en julio, siendo más brillante que cualquier otro objeto celeste en la noche exceptuando la Luna. La supernova fue visible a simple vista aproximadamente durante dos años después de su primera observación.​ Gracias a las observaciones escritas de los astrónomos del Extremo Oriente y Oriente Medio en 1054, la nebulosa del Cangrejo se convirtió en el primer objeto astronómico donde se pudo reconocer una relación con una explosión de supernova. #MascotaPuebloMagico #ObservatorioSolar #PueblosMagicos #Nebulosa #Anasazi #PetroglifoJalisco #Arqueologia #CrabNebula
