During winter our part of the world faces away from the centre of The Milky Way, so we don’t see the brightest part of the galaxy. Near the end of February the galaxy’s centre will return, rising in the east before dawn. The sky reveals the seasons in as much detail as birds and plants. In the above photo Chad stands under the Orion Arm of The Milky Way. The thin low clouds reflect the light of the valley.
