Milky Way Mosaic 10 x 20 Print by Ken Cleveland using Kodak metallic paper with polystyrene backing. Frame and hanging materials not included.
This wide field mosaic covers a large part of the sky from the constellation Scutum on left to the constellation Sagitarius on the right. Basically this picture is a view from earth towards the center of our galaxy. When looking at Sagitarius you are looking towards the very center of our galaxy where a super-massive black-hole is located. This black-hole is located approximately 26,000 light years from earth in the galactic core. The black-hole is estimated to have a mass of approximately 4.1 million suns. The dark structures in picture are enormous dust lanes where nebula and star forming regions are located.
