Milky Way from the Ocean Floor

By: Luis Argerich


Rio Negro, Argentina

2012 July 25


From the photographer: "This photo is taken from the seabed while the tide was low. At this place in the Argentinian patagonia the tide is 7-8 meters high. It will be covered by several meters of water a few hours after the shot. The Magellanic clouds can be seen at the left of the Milky Way where the coalsack nebula can be seen as a dark patch against the sky. The bright star Canopus is seen reflected in a tidal pool near the horizon. The wet shells in the ocean floor reflect the light of the stars."
