NASA’s Kepler mission has taken its first images of the star-rich sky where it will soon begin hunting for planets like Earth. The new “first light” images show the mission’s target patch of sky, a vast, starry field in the Cygnus-Lyra region of our Milky Way galaxy. For the next three-and-a-half years, Kepler will search more than 100,000 sun-like stars for signs of planets.
