Description

This is a combined image developed from three sources. The primary color palette comes from my tone map of Thor’s Helmet Hubble Palette image (http://www.astrobin.com/82529/). The luminosity layer is a greyscale version of an image from NOAO/AURS/NSF SSRO/PROMPT/CTIO (http://www.noao.edu/image_gallery/html/im1106.html).

Additional data was added to the image from the GLIMPSE360 Spitzer Space Telescope Infrared image of the Galactic Plane (Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech - http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/glimpse360/wwt)
