I'm pretty sure it is impossible to see the center of the Milky Way from Earth

I'll be seeing the very same at the end of this month. On the 24th I'm leaving for a 3 week vacation across the country. One of the things I'll be doing is going out to the middle of the desert just to see the night sky.

This morning from 2:30am until 4:30am I was photographing a very strange object in the sky. It appeared to be a red star, so I went inside and got my camera, my best zoom lens and a tripod. I shot approximately 60 pictures of the sky (about 30 of this object). The object remained stationary the entire time other than the typical movement of the heavens throughout the night sky due to the Earth's rotation.
