Pacific Nights by andyhutchinson Pacific Nights by andyhutchinson
The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains the Earth; it appears like a band because it is a disk-shaped structure being viewed from inside. There are an estimated 10 billion planets in habitable zones near stars in our galaxy, but it's unlikely we'll have acces to them any time soon.

This was taken at Black Head Point in Gerroa, on the east (Pacific) coast of Australia. The tree is a norfolk pine and the cloud in the lower half of the photograph is a massive storm front which completely obscured the night sky about a minute after I took this photo.

It is, isn't it. It's a Norfolk pine. :)

Grand! I don't know a lot about photography, but I'm assuming this is showing a lot more star detail than is visible to the human eye. Fantastic contrasting colours.

Thanks mate - and yes it is more. Long exposure of 30 seconds gives time for the fainter stars to hit the camera sensor :)

Silly me, don't know why I didn't think of that - seems obvious now that you mention it.
