A panorama of the Galactic Center builds on previous surveys from Chandra and other telescopes. This latest version expands Chandra's high-energy view farther above and below the plane of the galaxy — that is, the disk where most of the galaxy's stars reside — than previous imaging campaigns. In the first two images, X-rays from Chandra are orange, green, and purple, showing different X-ray energies, and the radio data from MeerKAT are gray. Also provided is a labeled version of the panorama composite pointing out interesting sights to see. The next images then show single (broadband) colors, with Chandra X-ray data in pink and MeerKat radio data in blue.
