APOD shows us a galaxy with a cloud of loose stars around it.
And when I look at it, I imagine what it would be like if one of those stars in the cloud above the galactic disk had an inhabited planet. That amazing spiral galaxy would fill the entire sky some nights. What would people on that planet think? Would they worship it? What would they name it?
(How did we English speakers end up with such an unromantic name for our own galaxy? "The Milky Way"? You must be kidding me. That was the best we could come up with?)
