In the centre, another plane shows the visible image obtained with the GTC. On the right is shown emission from the stars in HFLS3 and in a nearby galaxy in the near infrared (in orange) as observed with the Keck telescope and emission by cold dust and gas (in blue) in millimetric waves, observed with the IRAM PdBI interferometer.
