You can see a  medium-resolution jpeg  (2400 x 1200) of this image.  Please contact me regarding a full resolution (6000 x 3000) image.

This visualization was created using the original FITS data from the European Space Agency Planck Satellite. Nine channels of information in various microwave frequencies have been combined to create a single colored image.  Thanks to Aladin/CDS for assistance in extracting the HEALPix data to a Mollweide projection.
