McMaster Planetarium – The Milky Way: More than Meets the Eye

Have you ever been curious about the spectacular, “Milky” stream of stars crossing our night sky? Have you ever wondered what our Galaxy looks like from the outside, or what mysteries lie at the centre? Join us, as we explore some of the major historical breakthroughs in our understanding of our host galaxy, such as determining the size of the Galaxy, our location within it, and the role of dark matter. We will also discuss the various components of the Milky Way, learn about the different types of astronomical objects within it, and how the Galaxy appears at different wavelengths within the electromagnetic spectrum.
