Same here. Used to climb the Sierras as a kid in the boycotts, laying out in sleeping bags under the stars , the heavens were a marvel.

Not as good as these time lapsed versions, they are only possible with photographic effects.

That sounds so wonderful. The only thing I got to do like that was sleep out in a tent at a girl scout camp in a forest of pine trees. The Sierras. Stars. Sounds so beautiful.

Oh, how much I wish I was living at the "edge of the world" sometime to see these shows from the universe in first person. Breathtaking stuff, thanks for sharing!

Wind in the pines is a beautiful serenade. I can almost hear it whispering...

With the right equipment at the right place and with a quick introduction into photography you could achieve the same.

I don't know where you are from but if you have the possibility (geographically) to take pictures like this you're already half way done

Or you can say Milky Way is the most boring static ugly image ever. It depends on your current situation and mood if you enjoy the circle of life, suffering and death.
Unreachable, dusty, cloudy, dirty, possibly full of life from bacteria to mold, alien ticks, alien lyme disease and to countless stupid soap opera civilizations. It was pretty much the same sky when a World War 1 soldier during a cold night looked at it with a hope of better worlds ruled by someone else than people.

There sure is a bright side but I'll leave it here to balance a periodic thread which is btw lacking HD images.

I've been lucky enough to see the Milky Way when I used to live in an Estonian village. It looked like a dim hazy band of light spanning the whole sky.

Now living in a light-polluted town, I can still make out Milky Way's rich star fields using binoculars.

Dang, some of those shots are breathtaking. I'm having a difficult day between recovering from physical illness and emotional upset, and looking at these artfully taken pictures helps to lift my spirits.

They are inspiring art! I particularly like the shots where the magnificence of the milky way is juxtaposed against dilapidated man-made structures. I look at them and am reminded of how tiny and feeble we are compared to the vastness of cosmic splendour.

Thanks, cheers.

You've just reminded me of the Bill Monroe classic "In the Pines".

a reply to: MiddleInitial yeah been there myself my friend,physical illness only beats you if you let it. Think the pale blue dot picture shows it even more how tiny and feeble we are in the vastness of the universe.

The incredible thing to remind oneself when looking at these photos, is that we are _inside_ this thing. Although the vast majority of Milky Way photos focus on the galactic centre, this starry band of light encircles the whole earth.

Here's the "other" side of Milky Way, visible in winter: www.universetoday.com...

The big glow (I think) is actually the glow from the center of our galaxy.

Lol, I've checked my older HD thread to see that I busted dreams before. It has to be the Zen training.
