Figure 3-20. [Left] Color-coded brightness map of half a hemisphere of sky opposite the Sun (red filter, 710-nm wavelength). The positions of the galactic equator and the ecliptic are indicated by G and E, respectively, and the lighter colored vertical band corresponds to the Milky Way. Figure 3-21. [Right] Color-coded map showing the percentage of total light that is polarized (same scan program as in fig. 3-20).
