Besancon Arnaud submitted this composite panoramic photo – composed of 60 images – of the Milky Way over the top of Mount Toubkal in southwestern Morocco. Besancon wrote:

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.

5d mark2, Samyang 35mm at F1, 8, 3200isos.

Thank you, Besancon!
