Hubble's Lagoon

Having fun with the anniversary data. The original observations were mostly narrowband, but I thought it would be fun to hack it a bit and give it a wideband look. Takes the focus away from the color patterns to allow one's mind to appreciate the weight and shape of the structures more easily.


ps - The original news release image is here, just in case you missed it.


Data from the following proposal comprises this image:
