Planck all-sky images

Below are image of the full sky as seen by Planck. They are available in mollweide (oval) and cartesian (rectangular) projections, in two colour schemes (the official Planck colour scheme and black and white), and at a range of sizes (500, 1000, 3000, 12000 pixels wide).

Image details:

  • The images are in PNG format with no compression
  • The "Planck colour scheme" images are plotted using modified versions of HEALPixplotting routines
  • Most used indexed colour tables, rather than RGB
  • Most have whitespace around them due to the plotting routine used
  • Images at 1000px and 3000px sizes have a colour bar along the bottom.

Warnings:

  • These are images only. For the most up-to-date science products from Planck, please use the ESA Planck Legacy Archive or the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive
  • The 12000 pixel images can be very large, sometimes in excess of 50 MB
  • For this reason the 12000px colourised foreground images (bottom right) are slightly compressed JPGs
