The autumn Milky Way shines above the village of Locronan, Brittany, France. In many of the villages in this area (as well as some other areas in France) all street lights switch off in late evening to save energy, which also preserves the natural night environment, essential for both human and wild life. Light of a nearby town vanishes the sky at the horizon. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see a longer panorama that extends horizon to horizon. The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) appears as an elongated halo in the middle of the sky. Laurent Laveder,
