A Look Towards the Milky Way, the Centre of our Galaxy, From the Top of an Apu
This is a link to a beautiful picture taken at 10,000 ft atop a mountain in Oregon, USA, called the South Sister Mountain.
It was taken by astrophotographer Ben Canales. "To stand in awe before the Universe: The most amazing things about the Universe are that we are a part of it, and that we can understand it at all."
