The winter Milky Way over the coast of Pacific Ocean in Hawaii with the constellation Orion (top) and bright stars Sirius (center) and Canopus (bottom right). Also barely visible just above the horizon is the Large Magellanic Cloud, a surprising catch from this latitude (19 N). The view is seen from Ka Lae, the southernmost point of Hawaii and all of the United States. You can check out a more detailed look at LMC here. Tunc Tezel
