The Milky Way's Center | Astronomy Pic Of The Day

The lights of our neighbors:
Infrared cameras from the Spitzer Space Telescope, penetrate much of the dust of the Milky Way's crowded galactic center region. The detailed, false-color image shows older, cool stars in bluish hues. Reddish glowing dust clouds are associated with young, hot stars in stellar nurseries.

-Link to the full image, it's well worth loading.

On a related note, I hope you're associating with "young, hot stars", again and again, harder and harder, every chance you get...WHAPEESH!
