Many people don’t realize that you can take Milky Way galaxy pictures relatively easily if you live in the right area. If you live in a city, unfortunately, light pollution tends to make taking Milky Way galaxy pictures impossible, but if you live in a rural area or can travel to a remote area, you can get beautiful night sky photographs.
Milky Way galaxy photographs are really fascinating because they show the incredibly massive scale of the cosmos, since the Milky Way galaxy is so large, but it’s only a tiny faction of the galaxies in the universe.
You can also get clever when taking Milky Way galaxy pictures, by combining multiple exposures or doing long exposure photography. Here’s some stunning Milky Way galaxy pictures taken from right here on Earth.
