English: Composite image showing the galaxy cluster 1E 0657-56, better known as bullet cluster. The image in background showing the visible spectrum of light stems from Magellan and Hubble Space Telescope images. The pink overlay shows the x-ray emission (recorded by Chandra Telescope) of the colliding clusters, the blue one represents the mass distribution of the clusters calculated from gravitational lensîng effects.
Deutsch: Montage aus verschiedenen Bildern des Galaxieclusters 1E 0657-56, besser bekannt als Bullet-Cluster. Im das Hintergrundbild zeigt eine Aufnahme des sichtbaren Spektrums, das vom Magellan-Teleskop und dem Hubble-Weltraumteleskop aufgenommen wurde. Darüber liegt in pink die vom Chandra-Teleskop aufgenommene Röntgenstrahlung, die vom Cluster ausgeht und in blau die Massenverteilung im Cluster, die aus Gravitationslinseneffekten berechnet wurde.
