Type of Object: Sources of radio emission on large scales, like the Orion
nebula, or galactic center, is not observed at the galactic south pole. Instead the galactic south pole is a view out of our galaxy. We find galactic cirrus - low density interstellar gas and dust
seen above and below the galactic plane, as well as numerous galaxies.
