Galaxy NGC 1068

March 31, 2003
Atlas Image mosaic, covering 5.0´ × 5.0´ on the sky, of the famous Seyfert galaxy Messier 77 (NGC 1068). The nucleus of this galaxy is so bright in the infrared, particularly at longer wavelengths, that in the 2MASS mosaic, it has created persistence artifacts, seen as the two red "spots" due north and south of the galaxy center. 1999 Dec 8-14
