Question description

Use your SkyGazer software to help you plan another observation. This time when you go outside, look for the plane of the Milky Way in the sky (you may have to make a special trip to somewhere relatively dark to be successful). Then, in a 3 paragraph essay, describe what you saw, and compare it to what you think ancient people would have seen. Would you have called it "the Milky Way," or might you have chosen a different name? How does what we see in the sky compare with our current knowledge of the Galaxy’s structure?

Given that we are trying to map the Milky Way from the inside, the fact that we've deduced as much as we have is pretty amazing. Thinking about that mapping process, which aspect of the Galaxy's structure do think is our most interesting - or hardest to understand - discovery? 2 paragraph

Galaxy Structure as observed with skygazer Software
I used the skygazer software to study the plane of the Galaxy structure where I first
observed big and many clouds of starlight-soaking interstellar dust well known as the Great Rift.
There were massive overlapping dust clouds which seemed to be located between the Sagittarius
arm and the solar system with a spiral arm heading in towards the center of Galaxy. I observed
many particles that create the galaxy, and they sprinkled finely just like dust. Another
observation was the big puff of steam that looked like the Sagittarius asterism and is well known
as the large Sagittarius star cloud (Ackermann et al…, 2014). The cloud appeared bright, fairly
puffy and smooth and the other parts of the galaxy appeared to be fainter and less diffuse due to
the positions of low altitude. The deep south of the ...
