Super cool. What about The northern lights or aurora borealis. Now that would be super interesting!
Because of the structure of dust clouds in the Milky Way, I am curious as to whether as you go south, and the dark obscuring lanes and dust structures are more visible, we will get other name themes. In South America and Australia there are names for these “negative” constellations.
In Irish, Milky Way is “Belach na Bó Finne”
