Left panel: central regions of the Antennae galaxy merger including both nuclei. The K-band continuum, H2 1−0 S(1), and Brγ line emission are shown in blue, red, and green, respectively. All data were taken with WIRCAM on the CFHT. Grey contours show the CO(1 − 0) line emission from Wilson et al. (2000). The white square represents our SINFONI pointing. The H2 1−0 S(1) emission has the same morphology as the Spitzer IR emission in Brandl et al. (2009, their Fig. 4). The H2 morphology does not follow the continuum morphology, however, the Brγ does. Right panel: zoom onto the CO map of the overlap region (top, the square shows our SINFONI field of view) and the line-free K-band continuum morphology seen with SINFONI (bottom). North is up, and east to the left in all panels.
