The Galaxy in the backdrop of lights, taken near midnight in the shortest night of the year (Summer Solstice) from Point Penmarch lighthouse at the Atlantic Ocean shore of Brittany, France. From the photographer: "The Milky Way seems to emerge from the lighthouse. It rises up to Cygnus. On the right, Saturn and finally the couple formed by Mars and Spica are visible." Click on the constellation icon above the image to see a longer extended panoramic view of this scene. Laurent Laveder,
