Milky Way and Venus above the Maribios

Leon, Nicaragua

2014 February 16


From the photographer: "The photo was taken from the peak of the Telica Volcano. At the horizon is the light of Managua. The other hills are the volcanoes that belong to the volcanic ridge Los Maribios (Momotombo, Cerro Negro, El hoyo and Pilas). In the sky appears Venus, the Milky Way and if you see closer near to the top left side of the picture, you will see a tiny shooting star! You need to go to a really dark place to see the sky and its beauty. In Managua (the capital of Nicaragua) light pollution does not allow you to see the sky as in this picture."
