Approximately in the direction of 3 Sagittarii, the Galactic Center is the rotational center of our own Milky Way galaxy. It is located about 7.6 kiloparsecs away from the Earth in the direction of the constellations Sagittarius, Ophiuchus, and Scorpius where the Milky Way appears brightest.

We can't really see the galactic core because of interstellar dust along the line of sight. The available information about the Galactic Center comes from observations at gamma ray, hard X-ray, infrared, sub-millimetre and radio wavelengths. Although the Galactic Center cannot be studied at visible, ultraviolet or soft X-ray wavelengths, it is suspected that a supermassive black hole exists at the Center of the Milky Way.
