# Can Milky Way be seen in South hemisphere only?

I heard something(long time ago) that Milky Way can be seen in South hemisphere only, is it true? If so, what is the reason?

• You might be thinking of the Magellanic Clouds, island galaxies closer to the Milky Way than the Andromeda Galaxy.

The band of milky way is inclined by more than $60\deg$ to the celestial equator. Hence, it can be easily seen from the southern hemisphere.
