An Australia Telescope radio image of the Large Magellanic
Cloud, overlaid with symbols indicating the magnetic field's strength and
direction at various positions. The filled green circles indicate places
where magnetic north is pointing toward us, while the open green circles
show locations where north is directed away from us. The larger the circle,
the stronger the magnetic field. The purple asterisks indicate positions
where the magnetic field was too weak to be measured. Background image:
