Silent Night

By: Nikita Kharlanov


Gomel, Belarus

2015 June 19


From the photographer: "The photo was taken 3 days before the shortest night of the year. This place is located 18 kilometers from the city of Gomel. In our latitudes, the Milky Way takes the highest place on the sky in the shortest night. At the photo you can see the Milky Way starting with Sagittarius and ending with North America Nebula. To the right are seen dark nebula near Antares, and a little bit higher is Saturn. You can also see the green light of airglow near the horizon.
The picture was taken on the crop camera Nikon D5000 with lens 18-55mm f/3.5"
