Jupiter dazzles in the dark sky of Queensland, Australia. Sirius and Canopus, the two brightest stars of our night time appear on the right and prominent figure of constellation Orion is in the middle. Both the Large and Small Magellanic Cloud are also in the view at the far right. From the photographer: "To the right of the Oak Beach lies the rain forest, which is the part of Wet Tropics of Queensland, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just off shore is another world heritage site, the Great Barrier Reef. I had only 20 minutes of clear sky before a strong tropical shower from the sea finished the starry night." Tunc Tezel
