where does nature end

and where does "computer enhanced" and "artists concept" begin?

Computer enhanced....

Since the image would n9ot be visible in e normal range of human vision it has to be translated into something we can see. It doesn't violate nature, it only shows us what the eye is not sensitive enough to detect. I don't think "artist's concept" applies.

Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 observed the pillar on Feb. 1-2, 2010. The colors in this composite image correspond to the glow of oxygen (blue), hydrogen and nitrogen (green), and sulfur (red).
