Planck returns the latest map of the Universe at Microwave level...

This multi-colour all-sky image of the microwave sky has been synthesized using data spanning the full frequency range of Planck, which covers the electromagnetic spectrum from 30 to 857 GHz. The sequence of images shows the all-sky map with, superimposed, the locations of previous Planck image releases, a selection of extragalactic sources, and a map of molecular clouds.

Some clever coders have added this latest info to a (downloadable) composite map at multiple wavelengths...

Behold the Chromoscope.

All those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.
