to the heart of the matter

The Milky Way with three streaks. I think two of them are satellites. At or near the equator is the best area to view the Milky Way. The bright bulge that is the centre of the galaxy can be fully seen. Here we can only see part of it and it is on the horizon. During winter even less can be seen. Seeing more of the Milky Way would be worth the trip. Lisa says I will have to get a passport.
