The picture above is a multicolor image of a region of the LMC, one of our nearest neighbooring galaxies. Red is hydrogen emission, green is sulfur emission, and blue is oxygen emission. The pink regions are HII regions and the greenish regions (in the upper right just below the center) are newly identified supernova remnants (SNRs)
