The beauty, complexity, and mysteries of the Universe can only be understood fully if we study all of the information that distant objects provide. And this can be done only if we collect all of the light available to us, from one end of the electromagnetic spectrum to the other. This Table lists some of the astronomical objects that are seen best in particular wavelengths, and their characteristic temperatures.
