The images come from the Subaru website. The top graphic shows the location of HE 1327-2326 and the lower image shows a color image of the star above a stellar specta of HE 1327-2327 and the Sun. The humps and dips in the spectra represent the presence of different atoms. The more lines, the more different types of atoms are present in the star.
