A new supernova remnant in the Large Magellanic Cloud
by Warren Reid (Macquarie University)
Three multi-wavelength images of MCSNR J0512-6707, a newly discovered SNR in the Large Magellanic Cloud (Reid et al. 2015). The left hand image is the optical discovery image where H-alpha is red and the broadband red image is a combination of green and blue. In the middle image, the SNR is shown in H-alpha (red) overlaid with the 8 micron SAGE image in blue and the 24 micron MIPS image in green. To the right the MCELS continuum-subtracted optical image where H-alpha is red, [OIII] is blue and [SII] is green. On top of this image are radio contours at 3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10 sigma.
