From the photographer: "This is a pre-dawn view from Carnegie Las Campanas observatory located in the south of Atacama desert in Chile. The Milky Way is spanning across the zenith, and Southern Cross is rising on the left (together with bright stars Alpha and Beta Centauri). Astronomers are observing distant galaxies using the 2.5-m Du Pont telescope in the foreground. Yuri Beletsky
