Spitzer’s Galaxy

June 5, 2008 — Leave a comment

I briefly blogged yesterday about the massive image of our own galaxy, the milky way, that has been released by the people using the infrared Spitzer Space Telescope.

I just wanted to reiterate that it is really worth taking a look, and there is a great site produced by the team that not only uses the Google Maps interface (.astronomy!) but also highlights some features like nebulae to help the uninitiated viewer.

Take a look!
