X-ray & Optical Images of ESO 137-001
These images show NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope observations of ESO 137-001 as well as data of the same region from the Chandra X-ray Observatory. In addition to the electric blue ram pressure stripping streaks seen emanating from ESO 137-001, a giant gas stream can be seen extending towards the bottom of the frame, only visible in the X-ray part of the spectrum.
