I am not sure what is your meaning of "right after" ??
You cannot take a picture of milky way simply because we are inside the milky way. Whatever pictures that were taken cannot represent milky way, the pictures may represent a very very tiny part of milky way only.
If I can use an ant and elephant to illustrate what I mean…
If the ant wanted to take a picture of the elephant, the ant must take a picture from a distance of the elephant. If the ant is crawling on the skin of elephant, whatever pictures it takes are not the pictures of the elephant. The pictures may show a very small part of the elephant skin texture, a tiny part of the ear, etc, etc but the pictures shown are DEFINiTELY NOT how an elephant should look !!
Hope you get the point now...
Thank you for telling us how you think
I used to tell one of our formerly active members (now inactive but still staying in USJ)
that this forum contains a fantastic cohort for anyone wishing to observe and study sociological and psychological behaviours
I find you belong to a group of people who are very reluctant to different ideas. When there is a new/contradictory opinion to your “standard understanding”, you will quickly switch on your defensive mode and start to put allegation into people mouth !! Not sure whether this is caused by your upbringing or your language/academic background.
Fyi, I came across this idea – “ we cannot take a picture of milky way simply because we are inside milky way” from an English assessment papers published by NSW University, Australia. The article is one of the essays in the 2017 ICAS English exam. ICAS is the acronym for International Competitions and Assessments for Schools.

Hi Chang, Mars is super bright for a while... and it is a great time to look at the planets. http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essent...ometimes-faint
If you look between Mars and Jupiter, the quite bright silvery 'star' is Saturn. I was being lazy that night and didn't even bring out tripod until i told myself i will regret not taking pics after i get home. Thank goodness i took pics. hehehe.. That area is less than an hour drive from my hse. Oh .. Chang, my hubby who is a physicist by major, and is a Solar System Ambassador with NASA/JPL confirms it is the Milky way and yes we are in it , but it is IT, except for Andromeda.
