In the Sky

Up above

Up above 

Looking up into the Milky Way, again through Scorpio but a dark sky and without the moon (see my earlier image). This is a stitched panorama of two images. What fascinated me, on viewing it, is that no fewer than five satellites/space junk items have left trails. Only one shows here (you'll need to view large), just above and left of Antares and slightly below the centre.

Wow! Love both this and the previous one.
Do you know apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html ? It's my go-to place for perspective when life on earth looks too absurd ....
