The Entire Plane of the Milky Way Captured in a Single Photo

By photographing two separate nighttime scenes, one in the northern hemisphere and the other in the southern hemisphere, amateur astrophotographer Maroun Habibcleverly produced this dazzling image of the complete galactic plane visible from Earth.

Is it possible to capture the entire plane of our galaxy in a single image? Yes, but not in one exposure — and it took some planning to do it in two. The top part of the featured image is the night sky above Lebanon, north of the equator, taken in 2017 June. The image was taken at a time when the central band of the Milky Way Galaxy passed directly overhead. The bottom half was similarly captured six months later in latitude-opposite Chile, south of Earth’s equator. Each image therefore captured the night sky in exactly the opposite direction of the other, when fully half the Galactic plane was visible.

  1. Hahaha what a crock of shit. It’s probably nothing more than a good piece of Photoshop work. Or something dreamed up by an AI algorithm dressed up as reality. Pretty, though. I’ll give you that.

    NOTE: It’s upside down, mate! ?
