There’s an abundance of Milky Way Galaxy pictures out there, but the size of the VISTA composite image from the ESO (European Southern Observatory) in Chile trumps them all at 9 billion pixels. Pretty impressive!
I got to see the Milky Way in Oregon, many years ago. It was the most amazing sight! I was speechless and to this day can’t adequately describe what I saw. That’s why I am so grateful for all the folks who have shared their Galaxy photos and videos like the ones below.

I found that the Science Channel on Youtube do a pretty good job of explaining the Galaxy we know and love. There are lots of images and animations to show how it all fits together in this nice short video on the Milky Way.
For those wanting go a bit more in-depth, check out The definitive guide to the milky way galaxy on derenek’s Youtube channel. Be warned, it is an hour and a half long, so make a cup of tea and settle in.
Have you seen the Milky Way in all its glory? Did you take any photos?
