Event Information

Looking up at the sky on a dark night, people see only the faintest hint of the wonders the universe has to share. Telescopes are the cybernetic eyes, extending visions far beyond the narrow slice of visible light accessible to biological eyes. So what is it people really see when they look at astronomical imagery? How do they perceive color from the visible spectrum, and how can they use that to imagine other colors spanning the ultraviolet and infrared? Starting with datasets from JPL missions including the Spitzer Space Telescope, the Wide Field Survey Explorer (WISE), and the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX), follow the process that helps them witness a side to the universe that, until recently, was hidden from people’s sight.
