The center of our Milky Way Galaxy is hidden from the prying eyes of optical telescopes by clouds of obscuring dust and gas. But the Spitzer Space Telescope's infrared cameras, penetrate much of the dust revealing the stars of the crowded galactic center region. Stars are packed together and race around the supermassive black hole that lies at the center. Our sun is located 26,000 light-years away in a more peaceful, spacious neighborhood, out in the galactic suburbs.
The Galactic Center is the rotational center of the Milky Way which can be seen in my video. This was shot at the eastern most tip of Long Island's North Shore also known as Orient Point. Despite most of Long Island is filled with light pollution there are still areas dark enough for star gazing.
