We can see the core of our galaxy, red airglow, and a distant flash in the cloud in the middle.
On the left side, it’s the light of the city of Marrackech, 80 kilometers [50 miles] away.
The Andromeda galaxy can be seen above and to the right of the city lights.
Panoramic view with 60 images, each 10-second exposure time.
