This is home. The night sky shining above you and the Earth below your feet are all part of the Milky Way Galaxy. Our sun is just one of a billion stars that make up this massive swirling galaxy.As you stop, turn the headlamp off and breath in the brisk night air it's hard to imagine you're moving at 67,000 mph around one of these stars. Your galactic neighborhoodis 100,000 light years across!A shake of the head helps to snap you back into the present moment of the night hike. The snow-covered terrain is familiar but it's cold and there are tasty beverages back at home, so better keep moving.
