Featured above is a splendid view of southern night sky with the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds (lower right). This image was captured from the edge of the Atacama Desert of Chile, perhaps the most arid place on the planet and home to some of the darkest night skies in the world as well. I spent a month here earlier this year, in the house/observatory at center, with the desert and night sky as my "backyard." Photo taken on April 22, 2023.
