The internet is an amazing place.  Space.com just posted an amazing image of the Milky Way. And it turns out the professor that created the image is a faculty member of Central Michigan University, Axel Mellinger, just a few miles north of Shepherd.  It is an amazing combination of over 3,000 images.  Check out the high resolution image here.
