The Mitzpe Ramon - look to the sky
The Milky Way Galaxy as seen from Mizpeh Ramon sometimes referred to simply as "the Galaxy", is a barred spiral galaxy that is part of the Local Group of galaxies. Although the Milky Way is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe, the Galaxy has special significance to humanity as it is the home galaxy of the Solar System. The plane of the Milky Way galaxy is visible from Earth as a band of light in the night sky, and it is the appearance of this band of light which has inspired the name for our galaxy.
