We created this website to answer frequently asked questions like “What does it mean to observe in multiwavelength?” or “Why does NAOJ operate various telescopes?” This site starts with the Antennae Galaxy observed in various wavelengths and introduces colorful images of the Universe captured in various wavelength. We aimed to make a website that many people can enjoy even by just looking at it, so we collected beautiful and dynamic celestial images.

If you haven’t seen this website before, or even if you have, please take this opportunity to visit our site and learn about the scientific significance of the multiwavelength observations that are important for investigating the Universe.
