More than 800,000 frames were stitched together to create this infrared portrait of dust and stars radiating in the inner Milky Way.
The picture covers an area of sky as wide as your finger held out at arm's length, and as long as your open arms. That's about 2 by 130 degrees. Though it sounds like a pretty small slice of the sky, it actually captures half of our entire galaxy.
