Walking Under Milky Way

Region: Middle East

The Milky Way, our home galaxy of 200 billion stars, is one of the most beautiful natural sights in nature. While the view of the Milky Way is "gone with the lights" in our urban areas, it is still visible far from cities. The red line is made by the photographer walking with a red flashlight aimed at the ground. The three bright stars around the center of the image forms a large asterism known as the Summer Triangle. The W figure of the constellation Cassiopeia is also visible at the upper right. Babak Tafreshi/
