PACS parallel mode observation from performance verification phase

PACS parallel mode observation from performance verification phase


Date: 02 October 2009
Satellite: Herschel

The image above, taken by the PACS instrument, is of a 2 x 2 degree field in an area near the Galactic Plane, 60 degrees from the Galactic Centre, in the constellation of the Southern Cross. This region is considered to be a good test case for verification and demonstration purposes as it is typical of crowded fields where there may be many molecular clouds along the line-of-sight. The image shown here was obtained on 3 September 2009 and is based on just over 6 hours of observations.
