Multicolor views of the distant Universe, from X-rays to the infrared.
The AEGIS project is studying a small area of the sky using every possible color (or energy) of light. This file presents both multicolor images and an interactive redshift catalog from AEGIS. Each image---X-ray, ultraviolet, optical (Hubble), or infrared---gives us different information about the evolution of galaxies and massive black holes over the past 10 billion years. The redshift (or z) provides a measure of distance - the farther we look in space, the farther we also look back in time. In addition, the redshift catalog provides links to the spectra of individual galaxies.
