Milky Way galactic center

Back in the good old days when I could get Kodak 35mm, :-) I popped the camera onto the 4.5" reflector for a 5 minute exposure. The image was made during the early 1990's and the 2 giants Uranus and Neptune are in here from memory, I seem to remember going over the stars with an astronomy map, found something not on the chart, and then headed off to wind planets around, ah haa. There was something I had never seen in the telescope, (couldn't see what I was looking for), yet it was on the 35mm film.
They are Watching the Skies for You!
Our researchers, worldwide, do absolutely critical work.
Asteroid 2012DA14 was a close one.
It missed us. But there are more out there.
