An artistic interpretation of a supernova remnant of a tremendous stellar explosion that was observed in China and Japan in 1054. The color inverted Purple filaments are the tattered remains of the star and consist mostly of hydrogen. The rapidly spinning neutron star embedded in the center of the nebula is the dynamo powering the nebula's eerie interior bluish glow. The colors in the image indicate the different elements that were expelled during the explosion. Red in the filaments in the outer part of the nebula represents neutral oxygen,Magenta is singly-ionized sulfur, and Green indicates doubly-ionized oxygen.
