Comments: It is always a surprise to me how many people have never seen the ribbon of stars that make up the galactic plane of the Milky Way Galaxy. For those who take a late night venture to a dark sky site, a vivid view of the Milky Way is one of their rewards. In this long exposure, a small piece of the Milky Way blurs to produce what appears as a cloud of light on an otherwise clear night.
