Amateur astronomy. Computer artwork of a silhouetted amateur astronomer using a telescope to view the Milky Way. The Milky Way is a band of stars in the night sky that is a view of our own spiral galaxy from the inside. Our galaxy contains over 100 billion stars, which formed from clouds of gas and dust called nebulae. The astronomer uses a refractor (a lens telescope) on a German equatorial mount to track the stars.
