A great link that shows the importance of Sagittarius' location...and Ophiuchus' location. The center of the our galaxy lies in between Sagittarius and Ophiuchus.

Its funny, here in South America we can see it as a perfect triangle with the moon on top at the same angle.


Some pics I took some minutes ago from Rio de janeiro:

Thanks - seemed kind of strange not having a lot of stars in the background. Nice shots.



Venus,Jupiter and moon are among the brightest objects we can see in the sky apart from the sun. So LIKE THE MOON landing pictures if exposure is set for bright objects the fainter ones such as the stars dont show simple as that.

cool pics! i came home around 7:45 pm last nite and saw that. i bummed because i don't have a decent camera to get a shot. too bad, it was very clear out and really low light level in the village.

i was suprised about the lack of other stars i could see too.

i live on lantau island in hong kong.

I saw this earlier! I live in PA. I called my boyfriend, but he was still at work and couldn't look. I have never seen anything like it before! Someone else posted a thread about this before I seen this one, so I had no idea that it happened every thirty years till just now. Thanks Phage for the link to this thread!

Nice Picture. Unfortunately for those of us in North Alabama, he's not smiling at all. Instead it's an upside down smiling face (that's frowning) tried several times to take a picture with my cell phone to post here, but all I got was the upside down moon. The stars would not show up in the picture.

I've been asking my husband for weeks what the two stars (or planets) are that appear to be his eyes. Does anyone know?

Thanks. Again. Cool picture!

It is frowning at me. I think I'll keep copies of the smiling face and try to forget the one frowning at me right now.

HI wmd

I used my nikon d80 and the settings i used for the heap pf pix i took vaired - shutter between 1sec to 30secs and f-stop between 4 & 5. Obviously No speedlight/flash

As I stated in my reply to the query there isnt much ambient light out here and the formation was lower on the horizon so tiny stars wouldnt have come up from that angle, directly above me stars yes. but just above eyeline to the west no.

just got done walking the dogs up here in the north hemisphere rocky mountains... even though my hands were numb afterwards, and it was below freezing, i could not help but notice (through my collective) that something out there is watching us all. Hold strong you all and keep your heads up.
