Views of our beautiful Milky Way.

All images below cover the complete 360-degree celestial sphere, via a series of stitched frames forming a panoramic, with the Milky Way as the central line or arc. Except the last image, which is a close-up, relatively speaking.

It's well worth clicking on the images to see the larger sizes. If you have the bandwidth, clicking on the number 2 link (above) to see that image in its original too-big-for-blogspot size.
