In spring 2006 observations of the Galactic plane were made using the FCRAO (Five College Radio Astronomy Observatory) in Canada. These observatins traced 12CO, 13CO and C18O revealing where this molecular gas lies within certain reagions of our Galaxy.

The above image is a composite image of smaller 13CO images taken and compiled by Chris Brunt.
The next step in evaluating these data are to decompose the clouds into individual clumps, from which physical properties such as the mass of individual clumps may be deterined.
