Milky Way and zodiacal light

Gorgeous photo of the Milky Way and the zodiacal light in the early morning over Chile’s Andes mountains.

Photographer Yuri Beletsky captured this image in mid-January, 2018. He wrote:

During one of my trips to the Atacama Desert we were very lucky to witness such an incredible scene – both the Milky Way and zodiacal light were rising above the Andes mountains in Chile. In the foreground, a lagoon acted as a giant mirror.

I hope you’ll enjoy the view.

We do love the view! Thanks for sharing it with us, Yuri.
