The argument I hear in my head when I say that is, "But there are a billion brightly colored nebulae in the game already, what about those?" And while I partially agree, it can be argued that those are invented, and thus, who's to say those, fictitious nebulae, do not give off such visible light.
Excuses...excuses... just put them in and I'll set my visor for those frequencies...
Are you sure it isn't time for a "colourful metaphor"?
