The summer’s sky is full of many bright stars. The reason is simple: At the start of summer, the main plane of the Milky Way Galaxy is just above the horizon, and as the calendar approaches the middle of the summer season, the Milky Way’s main plane moves to the middle of the sky.
More stars are along the main plane than below or above the plane; therefore, it is the position of the main plane that fills the sky with stars.
