Discovery of Highly Obscured Galaxies in the Zone of Avoidance

Abstract

Our systematic search for extended extra-galactic sources in the GLIMPSE and MIPSGAL mid-infrared surveys of the Galactic plane has revealed two overdensities of these sources, located around l ∼ 47 and 55 and |b| . 1 in the Sagitta-Aquila region.
