The Milky Way rising out of the Kiamichi Valley

The Milky Way rising out of the Kiamichi Valley

The galactic center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, rises straight out of the Kiamichi Valley at Talimena Scenic Drive August 22, 2014 in Le Flore county, Oklahoma. The galactic center of the Milky Way is approximately 26,000 light years away so while this photo was taken in 2014, what you are seeing is actually around 26,000 years old. Photo / Kevin Pyle.
