Caption: Milky Way. Optical image of the Milky Way in the constellation Scutum, the shield. North is at top. The Milky Way is the band of light crossing the sky formed from the millions of stars in the plane of our galaxy. This region is particularly dense as the view is towards an area near the centre of the galaxy. Dark lanes of dust are seen blocking the light from the stars behind.
