Southern Milky Way above Mars-like red sands of Atacama Desert. The location is inside Yungay, the driest, and most sterile place on Earth. There is virtually no life on the surface of this region of Chile. The night sky from here is simply amazing.
A view of the Milky Way toward the constellation Sagittarius (including the Galactic Center) as seen from an area not polluted by light (the Black Rock Desert, Nevada). The bright object on the right is Jupiter, just above Antares.
