Galactic Center (Survey) Multiwavelength Close-Up
A multiwavelength close-up of the recent massive star-forming region near the Galactic center. The color image, plotted also in standard Galactic coordinates, is a composite of 20-cm radio continuum (red; ref. 26); 25-µm mid-infrared (green; ref. 16); and 6.4-keV line emission (blue).
