This is the Swift SMC mosaic at full resolution. About 250,000 ultraviolet sources appear in this mosaic of the Small Magellanic Cloud, which was assembled from 656 images taken by the Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope aboard NASA's Swift satellite. The 57-megapixel SMC image has a total exposure time of 1.8 days. The image includes light from 1,600 to 3,300 angstroms -- UV wavelengths largely blocked by Earth's atmosphere -- and has an angular resolution of 2.5 arcseconds. Viewing in the ultraviole

The LMC as it appears in visible light. The galaxy's most prominent object is the sprawling Tarantula Nebula (middle left), the largest star factory in the LMC and the most active star-formation zone among the dozens of galaxies that make up the Local Group, which includes our own Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy (M31). The LMC is about 14,000 light-years across.
