Why do Galaxies glow in the center, except for the Milky Way


Why do galaxies glow in the center, except for the Milky Way, our galaxy? With a quick internet search, my curiosity was satisfied. Dust! Dust in our own galaxy blocks our view of the dense collection of stars near it’s center, while the bright center of other galaxies is visible since we generally are not looking through or in line with the galactic disc. Enjoy this nice Cal Tech website. I love learning about the heavens, God’s front yard, back yard, neighborhood… His domain is beautiful. Little by little, we are learning.
