The Atacama Milky Way

The Atacama Milky Way!

The Atacama desert is one of the best places for star gazing. Step out at night and you’ll find yourself confronted with infinite diamonds in the sky. I used to think that I was good at spotting constellations. Well, not anymore! The sheer number of stars confounds me!

This is a shot of the milky way I took last night. We stepped out into the cold desert air and walked out of town for a bit to get a good look. We got some good luck too because we spotted quite a few shooting stars :)
