If you have access to a dark skywatching site, far from the glow of city lights, this is a great evening to look at the Milky Way. It arcs high overhead as darkness falls, so it’s quite a sight. And the Moon doesn’t rise until the wee hours of the morning, so it won’t spoil the show.

That faint, milky band of light outlines the disk of the Milky Way galaxy. It’s the combined glow of millions of stars. The stars are so far and faint that we can’t see them individually with our eyes alone.
