The skies of Alvord Desert, Oregon, USA

It was 2:30 in the morning and we were 1200m above sea level. Far away from the nearest large civilization. There are only lost villages of a few tens of inhabitants, some without even streetlights, for hundreds of kilometers.

After more than 10 hours of going to the desert, we knew it was going to be a hard journey, but it would be worth it to be in a lost in a place little visited that has one of the most AWESOME skies I have seen in my life.

Plant yourself in the middle of the desert, look around 360º and see nothing but a huge 19 x 11 kilometer stretch of flat sand that ends in mountains that you never see growing from far away.

Look up and see the sky fall on you...There were dark areas that had never seen anything more than a photo. The galactic core... indescribable. It shone in a way that cannot be described. And see how the stars came out on the horizon, almost as dark as in the zenith is spectacular.

Here, in this photo, I appear, sitting on a chair, with the Milky Way behind me, already descending and hiding behind the distant mountains.

The United States has touched my heart ... its people, its life, its cities, its magical landscapes, the warmth with which it receives you, its endless roads, its burgers, everything... This trip has marked a before and after in my life.

It's amazing how in a few hours the landscape changes completely :D

CHROMOSPHERE
The chromosphere is like a gas layer around the Sun's photosphere, it's always moving and changing. The structure of the chromosphere behaves differently in active regions than in silent areas, where magnetic field lines are stronger.
The chromosphere is governed by magnetic forces and is believed to be linked to the photosphere, has material that oscillates independently.

My best Jupiter 2018

Post by astroavani » Sat Aug 04, 2018 8:19 pm

It will certainly be my best Jupiter of the 2018 season because as the planet has passed opposition times I can hardly get anything better.
Many details are visible but what is most noticeable is the Oval BA at 4am.
The black and white photos is a simple grayscale filter and not a picture on the IR as I often post.
I want to thank tellescopio.com.br who kindly donated the camera that made it possible to get this image!
