Optical Image of Vela Supernova Remnant
The optical image on the left shows a wide field view of the Vela Supernova Remnant & Pulsar. This image comes from the Southern H-Alpha Sky Survey Atlas (SHASSA) of the CERRO TOLOLO INTER-AMERICAN OBSERVATORY (CTIO) of La Serena, Chile. The location of the Chandra observation of the Vela Pulsar Jet is shown as a red dot in a close-up of the SHASSA optical image (right).
Scale: Full Field: Image is 32 degrees on a side; Close-up: Image is 8 x 5.5 degrees
