Images

 

The following images are from student observations at Middlebury College Observatory. In some cases, a true color representation is achieved through observation at multiple wavelengths. In other cases, a false color representation is created that is scientifically representative of the observed wavelengths (i.e., redder colors represent longer wavelengths and bluer colors represent shorter wavelengths).
