Milky Way Road Trip

By: Tunc Tezel

 

Region: Middle East

Site: Mount Uludag - Turkey

Date: 2008 August 28

As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day in search of the summer Milky Way, the photographer took an evening road trip. After driving the winding road up Uludag, a mountain near Bursa, Turkey, he was rewarded by this beautiful skyview to the south. Near the center, bright planet Jupiter outshines the city lights below and the stars of the constellation Sagittarius. Above the mountain peaks, an arcing cloud bank seems to lead to the Milky Way's own cloudy apparition plunging into the distant horizon. In Turkish, Uludag means Great Mountain. Uludag was known in ancient times as the Mysian Olympus. Tunc Tezel.
