The Universe


Featuring in this roughly 270 degree panorama (from right to left) is the glow of the coming dawn to the east with the triangular glow of the Zodiacal Light stretching out from in it along the line of the ecliptic. A meteor strike is to the left of that. The plane of the Milky Way stretches above where I live. The two brighter patches in the sky on the far left of frame are the Large Magellanic Cloud (lower) and Small Magellanic Cloud (upper), which are satellite galaxies of our own galaxy.
