this is the world above us, the milky way.


its just that we are usually too busy or pretending to be busy to bother looking up and notice the vast beauty up there.


uploaded it at 1440x900 so you can use it as your wallpaper if you download the fullsize image (i am using it for mine~)

and yes this is a photograph.

Not just the world above us, the one that governs us~ /astronerd

Lovely photo! I hear the Milky Way is super clear on the way to Las Vegas from Southern California.. been meaning to see it sometime.

Will we ever stop
being afraid of nights and death?
And a thought returned:
When you reach the stars, boy, yes,
and live thee forever, all the fears will go
and Death himself will die.
-Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury

Love gazing up at the stars. Its so hard at time with all the city and town lights but its something magical when its clear like this picture. Totally making it my wallpaper. ^^ :star:

Damn this is pretty. Don't tell me you go this all in one 20-second exposure, or did you stack a few shots?

Always wanted to try this myself, but...well, you know how smogged up Chicago's skies can be.
