GALEX Diffuse UV Background

4. DIS-09 : a Target with almost NO Dust-Scattered Starlight

 4.01
Here is the correlation between FUV and NUV with NO dust-scattered starlight removed. Now, we are not going to waste your time by showing you the Mathematica images after removal of the tiny amount of dust-scattered starlight, but we WILL show you, now, the effect on the correlation
 4.02
Our dust map from Schlegel et al. shows only a tiny amount of dust: maximum E(B-V) is 0.035
 4.03
FUV correlation with E(B-V)
NUV correlation with E(B-V)
Kind of a funny bifurcation in the FUV correlation. That does NOT usually occur, but, it does occur for dis.09
 4.04
The time has now come to look at our Mathematica GALEX images for DIS-09. Here are the pipeline backgrounds for
FUV    and      NUV    (no dust-scattered starlight removed)
Here are the same two, side by side for comparison.
 4.05
Well, what else is there to say? Form your theory! Here is a major mystery! WHAT IS THIS DIFFUSE UV RADIATION FIELD?
 4.06
To assist you in forming your theory, here are: rotating FUV and NUV images of DIS-09

Before going on to serious analysis of what we are actually seeing, let us pause and have a little FUN with 3D views of Target One!
