yellowvalley: picture of a waterfall in yellowstone (angelfalls)
This is the most amazing picture of Our Galaxy as seen from Earth I have ever seen.  They have removed some dark nebulae, but otherwise it's like what we would see if nothing was in our way from standing in Argentina and looking up at the night sky.  Credit and copywright is given to  Milosav Druckmuller (Brno University of Technology).  Gakked from NASA.GOV.  Shhh, don't tell on me.

The two blobbish things off to the right are the large and small magellanic clouds, two irregular galaxies close to Milky Way.
