The lake surrounds the Milky Way, and the intense green atmospheric airglow surrounds everything. But the thick spiral of our extremely hot and cold galaxy is still and always held highly on a pedestal in my view.
That is how it felt while shooting this 360-degree panorama, looking at my camera screen astounded by seeing the intense greenness.
I instantly knew I wanted to join these 48 images with the ‘little planet’ method and not the typical panorama style.
I hope you like my efforts from the after hours mission I undertook a month or so ago.
I love it, Paul. Thanks for posting at EarthSky!
