Milky Way: peanut shaped core

On Saturday night I saw the beautiful shape of the Milky Way again and also many stars.

This is an image from the Milky Way as seen from the Netherlands (thanks http://www.astrorocker.nl)

I didn’t see it for a long time because of the light pollution in Maastricht. It let me to think about the latest news about the core of the Milky Way. The core or the galactic bulge is made of thousands of stars. The latest findings of ESO show that’s peanut shaped. There’s still a lot more to discover about our Milky Way.
