A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March False colors trace different gas temperatures. Reds are relatively cool (about Kelvin, or F); blues and greens are hotter (greater than 1 million Kelvin, or F).
The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth. This composite image includes images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).
