Click the picture to go to the APOD site, for a description. Clicking on the picture there a couple times will get you the high resolution version.


Here is a movie of a trip to the center of our galaxy.  It is made up of real telescopic images, zooming into the center and near the end shows the movement of the large gas cloud zooming around the massive black hole at the center of our galaxy using images taken each year since 2002.  Be sure to click on the youtube link on the bottom right of the video then the "show more" below the video to read the description.
