Where could I find some pictures of UV radiation (if it's possible).
Please send me the URL address.
High-energy at the HEASARC covers the energy range of 100 eV on up,
X-rays and gamma-rays, which is beyond what most astronomers consider to
be the UV. However, if you are open minded about it, we have some great
images from the soft X-ray (100 - 2000 eV) band. Many of these can be
found in the ROSAT (Roentgen Satellite, a German-UK-US collaboration) Guest
Observer Facility pages:
in the Public Gallery area:
HEASARC has images from a vast array of experiments (66), although not
all have images of astrophysical objects. These can be found at:
The Hubble Space Telescope ventures a bit into the near UV. Their
pages can be found at:
In addition, the
button on the Imagine the Universe! pages can lead you to pages of other groups
with outreach activities.
