Milky Way panorama

For those who like looking at pictures of space, European Southern Observatory has released an interactive view of the Milky Way.  It's a highly detailed map of our galaxy which shows objects ranging from Jupiter to Messier 35 cluster.

"The image is composed of almost 1,200 photos, which were taken by French astrophotographer Serge Brunier with a regular digital camera from ESO observatories at La Silla and Paranal in Chile and from one of the Canary Islands."
