The center of the Milky Way lies in Sagittarius. It is obscured by dust, and can only be observed directly in IR or radio wavelengths.
Visually, your best view of the region is with a pair of binoculars. Look where the "steam" is heaviest at the spout of the Teapot (Sagittarius), above the stinger stars of Scorpius, and you'll be looking at the center of the galaxy.
Ouch for the memory.
I can still recall -- almost 6 decades later -- being sent home from Kindergarten following the singing of "I'm A Little Teapot". I can no longer recall my particular sin, only that it was extreme. (But what can a child do that is that bad?)
