Magnificent Milky Way

This week at Davis: 27 April 2012

Even on the nights when the aurora is faint, if it is clear the Milky Way is there, spread out before you, filled with millions of stars - all shapes and sizes. 

Amazing to think we are seeing the light of stars emitted eons ago in some instances. Nowhere in the world is the sky so large, the heavens so overwhelming, as here. It never fails to humble.
