Caption

Milky Way. Milky Way, seen over trees, running through the constellations of Cygnus (at top centre) and Cassiopeia (at lower centre). Cygnus has a red area known as, due to its shape, the North America Nebula (at upper centre). The five bright stars of Cassiopeia form a flattened "W" shape. The Milky Way is a luminous band in the sky caused by the light of stars which are too numer- ous to be seen individually. The stars are numer- ous because an observer looking in their direction is viewing along the plane of our galaxy's disk. The dark areas in the Milky Way are dust clouds which hide the stars behind them. Photographed over the Laguna Mountains in California, USA.
