October photo: Milky Way over Atacama


The Atacama region, next to the Canary Islands and Hawaii, are the places with the cleanest skies on the planet, where the best and largest telescopes are installed. This image is made near San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, from the house where we were staying. Unfortunately here the sky is not so dark due to the light pollution of San Pedro, but that did not stop us from seeing the magnificent spectacle of the Milky Way over the southern sky.
