COBE Four Year Microwave Sky image
Four Year COBE Image

The all-sky image produced by the COBE Satellite. It is a low resolution image of the sky (7 degree resolution), but obvious cold and hot regions are apparent in the image. The large red band is the microwave emissions from our own galaxy. This image shows a temperature range of ± 100 microKelvin. It was processed through the same data pipe as the first year WMAP data. The largest version of the image has a scale added.
