This incredible video by William Castleman shows more than a few stars rising during the course of a Texas night. You can clearly see the bright, bushy centre of our Milky Way galaxy slide across the screen before the dawn comes.
I never tire of watching it.
Maybe listen to something from stillstream.com while viewing. And if you would like even better definition, you can download a higher resolution version from photographer William Castleman (link below).
Our galaxy is thought to contain between 200-400 billion stars.
