Re: Cover Picture

The photo is of light echoes from a supernova remnant called Cassiopeia A. The image is a composite of X-ray, optical, and infrared light exposures that have been digitally combined.<br><br>Like most of the Aphelion covers, the image was taken from NASA's Astronomy Photos archives.
