X-ray & Optical Images of IC 443
The Jellyfish Nebula is the remnant of a supernova that occurred over 10,000 years ago in our galaxy. Chandra observations show that a peculiar object located on the southern edge of the remnant is likely a pulsar and may have formed in the explosion that created the Jellyfish Nebula. These images show the spectacular filamentary structure of IC 443 in a wide-field view from an amateur astrophotographer, as well as a smaller of field of view of optical data from the Digitized Sky Survey and X-ray data from Chandra. The close-up views show the region around the pulsar candidate.
