Dying Star Captured by Hubble Telescope

These images do not look at all like what you would see if observed through an open filter (i.e. naked eye, no color band limiting). They are constructed by colorizing a coadded series of images from 3-5 different filters which usually include infrared and/or ultraviolet bands, which we couldn’t see. These in particular have their colors faked as a representation tool.
