And even more….
As earth spins around we end up looking out into space, away from the centre of the Galaxy and this is the time of year known in Astro circles as ‘Galaxy season’
Below is a image of Makarian’s Chain of galaxies, actually the centre, little string of galaxies is the chain – there are many other galaxies in this image. It was taken with a focal length of only 66mm to get as wide a field of view as possible. Looking out into Virgo there are literally thousands of galaxies and remember each galaxy has billions of stars in it!
