In a starry night of a remote island of Mangaia in the southern hemisphere, the band of the Milky Way stands above the Pacific Ocean. Mangaia is one of the Cook Islands, which is circled round with a ring of coral reefs. Images of stars and Milky Way were reflected from the relatively calm waters inside the reef, during low tide. Part of this panorama can be seen upside down in this double picture. Tunc Tezel
