This highly detailed image of the Crab Nebula combines data from telescopes spanning nearly the entire breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum. The picture includes data from five different telescopes: the Spitzer Space Telescope (infrared) in yellow; the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (radio) in red; Hubble Space Telescope (visible) in green; XMM-Newton (ultraviolet) in blue; and Chandra X-ray Observatory (X-ray) in purple.

Notice that the green color is all we can (could) see with our own eyes. The rest is invisible to natural human sight.
