This is the 12 µm IRAS image.
You may also see images at other wavelengths by clicking on the colorbar at a point above any of the dashed arrows (which point to other regions of the spectrum at which images are available). The solid arrow shows the spectral region you are seeing now. This is not intended to be a linear scale in wavelength, but only a rough guide to the wavelength of the observation.
This mid-infrared pseudocolor image was made by using a color map having white as the brightest, then blue, green, yellow, red and black at the faint end, to display the intensity of each pixel. At this wavenlength V380 Ori is the strongest source in this field. Also seen are a faint star just south of V380 and the Cohen-Schwartz star.
