The map behind this box displays the 24 micron band component of the MIPSGAL survey, which spans along the
galactic plane. In the central region of this map, the map's height in
galactic coordinates is roughly -3 < b < 3 (degrees). As you go further from
center to right or left the height range becomes -1 < b < 1. The width's
span is -68 < l < 69.
The markers point out some of the well known objects contained in the region of this survey. Over time more markers will be placed as new objects of interest are noted. The survey contains a vast amount of information and serendipitous discoveries are likely. Please note that the image wraps from edge to edge in this map.
