02.05.2014 / Sutherland, South Africa

In the last few days, I had the chance to photograph at the actual observatory-site, which normally is closed for visitors after nightfall. Due to no light pollution (Sutherland, the only town around, is 14 kilometers away), this particular region has some of the darkest skies in the world. What a magical place in the middle of nowhere! I got up there just before sunset last night, and took this picture in the last light of day – just before the Milky Way appears on the night sky like a solid white ribbon and the sharp eyes of the telescopes take up their incessant work in time and space.
