Milky Way Over Switzerland

NASA Astronomic Picture of the Day
Milky Way Over Switzerland

It’s one of Switzerland’s most impressive spots anyway (go there for a hike in spring!), but this time exposure image of the milky way above Creux du Van near Neuchâtel is simply breathtaking. Also, I came to realise that those astronomers responsible for giving names to what we see here, seem to be a group of poets and geeks. We see nebulas called the Flaming Star Nebula, the Heart and Soul Nebulas, and the Pacman Nebula.
