Visibility V / V

Tomi Kurri, Porin Karhunvartijat

I visited Coonabarabran, Australia's astronomy capital, around mid-August. The sky was really dark (Bortle 1) and the Milky Way was unimaginably bright. In addition to the southern sky, I photographed the Sagittarius region, which is invisible from Finland, and the center of the Milky Way. Here are the Trifid and Lagoon Mists.
