The Milky Way, as seen from Namibia, the galaxy that contains the Earth. This name derives from its appearance as a dim "milky" glowing band arching across the night sky, in which the naked eye cannot distinguish individual stars. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy 100,000–120,000 light-years in diameter containing 200–400 billion stars.

Namibian Heavens. Milky Way over Namibia, Africa - something those who never get to places completely without man-made light can never hope to see. I wonder, would ancient humans have been dazzled by such a sight, or would it be, meh, same old, same old?
