Hubble-V

This infrared view of the whole sky highlights the flat plane of our Milky Way galaxy (line across middle of image). NASA's WISE, will take a similar infrared census of the whole sky, only with much improved resolution and sensitivity.

Cracking the Code of Faraway Worlds

The top graph consists of infrared data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. It tells astronomers that a distant planet, called Upsilon Andromedae b, always has a giant hot spot on the side that faces the star, while the other side is cold and dark.

The Light and Dark Sides of a Distant Planet

This artist's animation shows a blistering world revolving around its nearby 'sun.' NASA's infrared Spitzer Space Telescope observed a planetary system like this one, as the planet's sunlit and dark hemispheres swung alternately into the telescope's view.
