About This Gallery

Return to Gallery

The Two Micron All Sky Survey is one of the most ambitious digital measurements of the sky ever made. Its final release will provide the astronomical community with over one million research-quality images in each of the three infrared colors observed by 2MASS.

During the course of operations, color images of hundreds of fields have been assembled by the 2MASS staff. These extensive mosaics sometimes cover many degrees of sky and have been carefully stitched together from hundreds, sometimes thousands, of individual images.

This "Showcase" gallery will highlight some of the very best images by the 2MASS survey and will provide them at full resolution, often large enough to be suitable for high resolution print work.

Watch for periodic updates!
