“The eyes of WISE have not blinked since launch”

Nasa marks the completion of the first survey of the entire sky by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer [WISE] with the release of a new image from the survey – a seven square degrees region including the Pleiades cluster.  Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA.

WISE was launched in December last year and saw first light in January.  Here’s a short video medley of previously released images.
