A false-color composite image of the central 50 light-years of the Milky Way as seen for the first time in the entirely of the far infrared. Many of the previously-known structures in the region are labeled; the location of the black hole is labeled “SagA*,” and the inner donut as “CND.” Colder material is shown in red; warmer (but still relatively cold) in blue.
