( The pictures are by NASA )

This supernova was colored by Multiwavelength X-ray, infrared, and optical compilation image of Kepler's Supernova Remnant, SN 1604. (Chandra X-ray Observatory)


Composite X-ray and infrared image of the SN 1572 remnant as seen by Chandra X-Ray Observatory, Spitzer Space Telescope, and Calar Alto Observatory


The most famous and best-observed young SNR was formed by SN 1987A, a supernova in the Large Magellanic Cloud that was discovered in 1987

The last one looks awesome, with the red, violet and blue colors, and the lines. :)
The first one is also very beautiful. :)

The last one sort of looks like lightning, suggesting there was a LOT of energy.

The purple, red are together forming the letter "L", while the faint purple is like 1/4 a circle.

I wonder why that is. ??? Scientists need to study supernovas way more. :-\
