Photo: One solo photo each for everyone with the Milkyway is free. For every additional photo, it is $10 per photo. About: The Milky Way Galaxy is one of the most interesting naked eye sights in the night sky. We live under light-polluted skies and to see a glimpse of the Milkyway, we need to travel outside the city. Stay outside in full darkness for a few minutes, then look up. There will be a faint "river" of light crossing the sky. That's the Milky way. Full dark adaptation occurs after 30 minutes of not seeing any source of light, but this is not required for seeing our galaxy.
