"Room With A View"

Lookout on top of Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia.

At the top of the image is the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) which are dwarf satellite galaxies of our own Milky Way. The LMC is home to the very large star forming region of the Tarantula Nebula (brighter greenish patch). The bright spot just to the right of the SMC is the second largest globular cluster in the night sky 47 Tucanae which contains millions of stars. In the lower section of the image to the left of the hut are Alpha and Beta Centauri, the closest star system to our own Sun. Above that in the Milky Way is the Southern Cross (Crux) Constellation and the dark Coal Sack Nebula. Further along the plane of the Milky Way is the Carina Nebula star forming region.

I love southern hemisphere skies.
