While participating in the great Distant Worlds Expedition, I of cause visited Sagittarius A*, the Super-massive Black Hole in the center of our Milky-Way Galaxy.
From home all we see is a bright ribbon in the sky, which the ancient Greeks named “galaxias”, (literally “milky”).
Hence the name “Galaxy” for all clusters of stars, and of cause the name Milky Way for our own galaxy.
Being the Center of our Galaxy I wondered how the Milky-Way looked like form here, since it is now essentially all around us.
So I made a quick video of it.
This one also features Sagittarius A* as well.
