We measured the cross-correlation of the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) 7 year temperature map and the full sky data release of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) galaxy map. Using careful mapmaking and masking techniques we find a positive cross-correlation signal. The results are fully consistent with a Lambda-CDM Universe, although not statistically significant. Our findings are robust against changing the galactic latitude cut from |b|>10 to |b|>20 and no color…
