   SSTGLMA (Spitzer Space Telescope, GLMA)= (GLIMPSE) = (GLMA) = (GPSA) Write:<<SSTGLMA GLLL.llll+BB.bbbb>> N: about 50000000 Object:(IR)  (SIMBAD class: MidIR = Mid-IR Source (3 to 30 µm)) Note:The Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinary (GLIMPSE), which is a Spitzer program, is a fully sampled, confusion-limited infrared sample of 2/3 of the inner Galactic disk.
The GLIMPSE Archive consists of point sources with a signal-to-noise>5 in at least one band and less stringent criteria than the Catalog.
See also SSTGLMC for a description of the GLIMPSE Catalog sources.
