We don’t have any real pictures of the Milky Way galaxy. Most non-illustrated images of the entire Milky Way spiral are actually of another spiral galaxy called Messier 74. It’s impossible to take a full photo of the Milky Way’s spiral structure because it’s about 100,000 light-years across, and we’re stuck on the inside. Source Source 2 Source 3
