Towards the Core (001)
Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day gives us only one of many stunning views you can see as you look towards the center of our galaxy. Messier 20 and 21, a nebula (the Trifid) and an open cluster, both in the constellation of Sagittarius. Sweep the sky in that region (preferably dark, still and low humid skies!) with a pair of binoculars or a telescope with a wide view/low power eyepiece. You'll thank me later.
