The Milky Way
The Milky Way
I have bumped up the contrast on this one to highlight the faint Milky Way. We (Earth & co) are on the edge of one of the spirals of stars; this is a view into the centre of our galaxy. The galaxy contains around 200-400 billion stars; there are an estimated 100-200 billion galaxies. Put another way, there are more stars than grains of sand on earth.
