Multi-wavelength views of stuff

I just know I'm going to want to find this again to use in a public talk, and it's fantastic so I want to share. "The Earth and Friends in Multiple Wavelengths", by Rob Simpson (@orbitingfrog). Of course galaxies are my favourite, so I'm reproducing the image of M31 (the Andromeda galaxy) in here (from top left to bottom right, radio, microwave, infrared, optical, UV, Xray).

And I like flowers too - so here's a geranium in optical (left) and UV.

Thanks for the excellent post Rob.
