Milky Way From Peru

During our trip to Peru, I had a chance to take some photos of the night sky.  Luckily, the timing was right….meaning the moon cycle was perfect and it wasn’t cloudy.  On top of that, the Milky Way is about 70% bigger in the southern hemisphere….but don’t ask me why. 

This photo shows you about 30% of the Milky Way that was visible that night.  You could see the entire arch (like a full rainbow).  It was an amazing sight.   Sorry I couldn’t get the entire Milky Way in my shot.  It was just way to big.

By the way, the orange glow at the bottom is the city of Puno Peru in the distance, which created light pollution in my photo.
