Francis Tapon asked the Naked Scientists:The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy and we are at the edge of it. The center is a bright spot of many stars.However, when we look at the Milky Way at night, the band of stars is not only dim, but we never see the bright core.Why is that? Is stellar dust blocking our view? Or is it too far away to see with the naked eye?What instrument would see it and how close together are the stars there?Francis TaponWhat do you think?
