Milky Way image reveals 84 million stars at galactic center

See my new Examiner article about this massive, 9-gigapixel photograph of the Milky Way created by astronomers.

Astronomers catalogue 84 million stars from new image of our Milky Way

“By combining thousands of infrared images by Europe’s dust-piercing VISTA telescope, astronomers have been able study more Milky Way stars than ever before.”

  1. An impressive achievement for the astronomers, to create a comprehensive catalogue of that many stars.
    Perhaps even more impressive is that even this huge sample is but a tiny portion of the 200 billion+ stars in the Milky Way galaxy, which is but one of at least 100 billion or so galaxies in this mind-bogglingly vast universe.

  2. Vast and …
    So unimaginably beautiful …
