A Postcard from Brazil
Stunning view of the Milky Way appears above coconut palms at the shores of Ilha Grande, Brazil. Note Altair, the brightest star in the constellation Aquila, above the palms. This island is located off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state and it is largely undeveloped and noted for its scenic beauty. Ilha Grande is one of the most pristine remnants of Brazil’s Atlantic rainforest and one of the richest ecosystems in the world.
