our solar system is part of the milky way.. everytime you look at the sky you're already looking at it

I've seen it every time I've gone camping away from all the city lights. It's a sight in the night sky everyone should see at least once. For those that haven't seen the milky way in the sky, just google it and you can see some pictures some people have taken of the night sky showing the milky way. Here's one such picture for you lazy people.

It's not the northern lights. That's what our sky looks like without all the lights from the city flooding out the sky. It's the milky way galaxy that we're a part of.

The northern lights are a different view. Northern/Southern lights = solar particles bouncing off our atmosphere where they're ionized, makes the solar particles glow, by the magnetic poles of our planet. I'll get to go see those in person one day soon. Probably will make an effort to go see them when I take a trip to Alaska. Maybe sometime next year I'll plan a trip there.

Yeah, I have seen it lots of times. About the only good thing about some of the god forsaken places I got sent to in the military without running water, toilets or good electric power was being able to look up at night and see all those dang stars. I never could look up at that and not feel awesome and humble at the same time.
