Caption

Milky Way. Milky Way, seen over trees, running through the constellations of Cassiopeia (at centre) and Perseus (at lower right). The five brightest 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 numerous to be seen individually. The stars are numerous 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 Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State, USA.
