This is a single shot of the Milky Way taken in my front driveway, not the metor top portion of the galaxy. What strikes me about this shot is that the talk about all the quarantines cleansing the earth must be a real thing. I have NEVER come close to this sort of clarity and detail on a deep sky single shot in the throws of urban light pollution, I'm 20 miles from downtown Jacksonville. There's still the light coloring at the bottom nearer the houses glowing in my neighborhood but still, it really has made a difference in the night sky on clear nights.
