Time-Lapse Movie Of Crab Pulsar
This movie shows dynamic rings, wisps and jets
of matter and antimatter around the pulsar in the
Crab Nebula as observed in X-ray light by Chandra
(left, blue) and optical light by Hubble (right,
red). The movie was made from 7 still images
and Hubble observations taken between November
2000 and April 2001. To produce a movie of
reasonable length the sequence was looped several
times, as in looped weather satellite images. The
inner ring is about one light year across.
