Touching Our Home Galaxy

Story: This photograph represents very well the urge that professional and amateur astronomers feel...to be in touch with the night skies. This image translates our psicological will.

Astrophotography uses this prerogative and creates an incredible proximity bias! :) It's a psychological tact. We are reaching out to the universe by the means of an image.

This image was taken in Chile, near the city of Antofagasta in May this year. This is a 33 foot high sculpture made by the chilenean artist Mario Irarrázabal.

Boy, this was a fun image, Thanks Sakib! I believe J-P Metsavainio and Rick Stevenson have actually image part of this halo, I just wanted to confirm it.

65 Hours of exposure on this one. Seems to be a faint outer shell in O3 over 1400min so far(all taken with no moon), each 5 hours I add seems to bring out a bit more. Taken at Stellar Winds Observatory, Dark Sky New Mexico with 24" Planewave.

FLY AWAY
GALACTIC CENTER AND FALLS FROM COLOMBIA
Copyright: ©Camilo Jaramillo

Matasanos falls, an amazing place that i visited some few months ago. That night i was sick with flu but nothing stoped me to make some Milky Way photos that night. when me and my friends finally arrived where the falls hits stones we noted that to get this picture we needed to cruise a fast and dangerous river (at night you need to be carefully for injuries). Even sick i convinced myself that i was already there and i had to get that picture no matter how, in fact the night was totally clean of clouds, i got into the cold water and cruised the dangerous river very carefully.. when i finally arrived where milky was straight above falls i putted my camera and tripod and this was the final result.

A billion sunsets above the clouds

Adrien Mauduit

Derived from my movie 'Fall skies of La Palma', you can probably remember this epic scene where the core of the milky way- containing billions of stars, was setting above a sea of boiling clouds. Since I shot a time-lapse, I had a series of the same shots in a row that I just stacked together to increase contrasts, details and colors. At just 25 shots (after which the milky way core disappears too much under the horizon) you can reveal so much details in this particularly bright and colorful region. You dramatically increase the impression of three dimensional space, where the light coming from the downtown neighborhood of our galaxy is being blocked by a central lane of dark hydrogen clouds. In front of it and much closer to our solar system, previously exploded stars created nebulae like the Lagoon (large pink gas cloud) and the Trifid nebula (pink and blue nebula). Some will also probably recognize the brightest stars closest to us: Nash (left corner), Kaus Meridionalis (far left), Kaus Borealis (at the very top left), M23 star cluster. The brightest 'star' you see is actually Saturn setting at the same time as the milky way core. In its last moments before we are able to see it again (in the Spring), the central part of our own galaxy offers us such a colorful and bright last minute 'sunset' where in fact, billions of 'suns' set on the horizon.
