The bright band of the Milky Way is beautiful visible in this time of the year. When you look high up in the sky, you’ll see the constellation of Cygnus. This constellation lies from our perspective in the Milky Way band.
So, when you aim your binocular or telescope to this region, you’ll see a countless amount of stars. Each star in this vast starfield is unique. Every single star tells his own story. They have planets that orbit around them, and on those planets may be live. Dreaming about the wonders that are out there is what makes astronomy so special.
Thanks for watching,
