This is not how you will se the nightsky with the naked eye. This is how it looks through some narrowband filter just letting some of the light come through. BUT the light is there and it looks like this but we can´t see it. This shot is taken by the Dalriver Ålbo Sweden. It is a single exposure but four of them, to cover a large part of the Milkyway. Imagine that we actually live in a galaxy, beautiful spiralgalaxy in one of the spiralarms, the Orionarm. In the top of the photo you can se part of another spiralarm, the Cygnusarm..
