Via Lattea

The milky way pours over me
We own the stars and night
Angel of death has set us free
Blue light of pure insight

Cathedral, Blue Light

 

Sempre a proposito di cose da condividere, segnalo la seguente foto (vai qui per vederla a dimensioni più grandi) scattata dalle montagne svizzere in una notte a dir poco limpida.

La Via Lattea sopra la Svizzera

Cito dalla pagina linkata:

What’s visible in the night sky during this time of year? To help illustrate the answer, a beautiful land, cloud, and skyscape was captured earlier this month over Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Visible in the foreground were the snow covered cliffs of the amphitheater shaped Creux du Van, as well as distant trees, and town-lit clouds. Visible in the night sky (at midnight) were galaxies including the long arch of the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy, the Andromeda galaxy (M31), and the Triangulum galaxy (M33). Star clusters visible included NGC 752, M34, M35, M41, the double cluster, and the Beehive (M44). Nebulas visible included the Orion Nebula (M42), NGC 7822, IC 1396, the Rosette Nebula, the Flaming Star Nebula, the California Nebula, the Heart and Soul Nebulas, and the Pacman Nebula. Rolling your cursor over the above image will bring up labels for all of these. But the above wide angle sky image captured even more sky wonders. What other nebulas can you find in the above image?
