What Is Milky Way

This Mind-blowing Photo of the Milky Way Shows 84 Million Stars in 9 Billion Pixels

The Milky Way - 84 Million Stars in 9 Billion Pixels via petapixel: The image is a composite of thousands of photos shot by the VISTA survey camera by Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in Chile. if you were to print out this image as a standard book photograph, it would be nearly 30-feet wide and 23-feet. Here is the link to the zoomable image. http://www.eso.org/public/images/eso1242a/zoomable/ #Astronomy #Milky_Way #hahahaha8888

Endless: This all-sky view of the entire near-infrared sky reveals the distribution of galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The image is derived from the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog, which contains more than 1.5 million galaxies, and the Point Source Catalog, which holds nearly 500 million stars within the Milky Way. The galaxies are color coded for distances obtained by various surveys. The nearest sources are blue, moderately distant sources are green, and red represents the farthest so

The Tornado (shown here as an artist's impression) is an unusual radio source near the center of the Milky Way showing remarkable filamentary structures influenced by the magnetic field. It is thought to be a supernova remnant, although evidence is still inconclusive. Another unusual source is a cluster of bright, compact nebulae located in the lower right edge of the Nebula. Astronomers debate the nature of the relationship between the larger Tornado Nebula and the cluster of compact…
