Artist's simulation of the discovered pulsar as seen from the Earth.

Artist's simulation of the newly discovered pulsar, PSR J2007+2722, as seen from the Earth. In the second half of the animation, the rotation (white) and magnetic (yellow) axes and the line of sight (blue dot) are visible. The observed pulse profile is shown below the animation. The radio emission cone shows the beam intensity (yellow ring) explaining the pulse profile.
