The Center of the Milky Way

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

I have finally captured the visible band of our galaxy!  While the actual center of the Milky Way is behind the trees, this is by far the best shot I have captured.  I even got a shooting star in this one.Kevin Heffner - Milky Way _MG_2806

 

I thought this picture had some great detail, even if I did capture an airplane and power line.

The Milky Way

Monday, August 13th, 2012

This is my first attempt at capturing a little piece of our own galaxy, and I certainly pushed the technical limits of my camera on these.  The diagonal band of what appears to be clouds, or light, or noise are actually billions of stars that make up a small part of an arm of the Milky Way.
