Views of Interacting Galaxies from Aladin Lite
This montage illustrates how the Aladin Lite exploration tool can be used on the NOIRLab website to view and compare images of the same astronomical object, in different wavelengths of light and from different observatories.
These four panels show a pair of interacting galaxies called NGC 5394 and NGC 5395. The images are from Gemini North taken in visible light (upper left), the Digitized Sky Survey also taken in visible light (upper right), GALEX (lower left) taken in ultraviolet light, and 2MASS taken in infrared light (lower right).Credit:
