Milky Way

Can anyone tell me where the milky way is? Please :slight_smile:

The best view is (in my opinion) in the WISE/unWISE layer:

It’s that shape because of the projection / axes we’ve chosen here – the map is in RA,Dec coordinates, which are basically projections of the Earth’s equator, which is tilted compared to the Galactic plane. The bright spot in the center of that map is the Galactic center, and the bright wavy lines are the galactic plane. The two faint blobs in the south are the Magellanic clouds.
