The image shows the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, seen edge-on from Earth, a band of light across the night sky. Clearly seen are the disc with both dark and glowing nebulae, which harbours bright, young stars, as well as the central bulge and the irregular satellite galaxies, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
