The Milky Way over the Colorado River

290/365: Our Galaxy – The Milky Way

Our galaxy, the milky way, showing it’s beautiful colors and amazing vastness. Looking at this makes me realize how small we are, how big our world is and how beautiful and complex life is.  To understand that the Milky Way is about 100,000 light years away from Earth, yet my eyes can still reflect on its beauty.. how amazing and somewhat unbelievable.
