IRAS-HIRES image of the LMC. Red, green, and blue are mapped to
60, 25, and 12 microns, respectively.
Stars appear as bright blue points, while most of the red emission is cirrus emission from dust. The big bright region is 30 Doradus.
This image will be used to fill in the regions too bright for WIRE to look at, as well as to provide long wavelength information.

The little circles are single WIRE images.
