Balancing boulders and the Magellanic Clouds, 9/11/2013

The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are small satellite galaxies of our own Milky Way Galaxy. Along with the Andromeda Galaxy they are the only objects you can easily see with only your own unaided eyes that are outside of our galaxy. Being close to the South Celestial Pole the Magellanic Clouds are best seen from the Southern Hemisphere.

Canon 5D MkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 1600, Single 25 Second Exposure, 35% illuminated Moon is lighting up the landscape. Some of you may recognise this rock formation from my panorama image "The Sentinel"

I captured these 2 galaxies last night and couldn't figure out what they were. I deleted the shot :'(. I am rather disappointed now. Beautiful shot mate. Has inspired me to capture another one :)

You are very welcome. Am hoping to use some of your wonderful photos to help the Scouts learn about Astronomy--they are working on their Astronomy Merit Badge and your explanations of what is in each photo are so useful for star identification and everything! Hope this is OK with you! Won't be copying or anything, just viewing them.
