Sequence of Andromeda Galaxy (M31) Images
Quicktime MPEG
Beginning with a wide-field optical view, this sequence of Andromeda Galaxy images moves into an X-ray look of the central region. In this Chandra image, red represents lower energy, green as medium energy, and finally blue as the highest energy X-rays that Chandra detects. This sequence also shows a composite of X-ray and infrared light, before returning to the Chandra-only view.
