milkywayDust bands and gas clouds stand out against the glowing heart of the Milky Way Galaxy in this composite of views from both the southern sky and the northern sky. The southern data were obtained at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile, and the northern were captured by the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory on La Palma off the northwest coast of Africa in 1984 and 1985.
