Feeling the Night
A 360-degree night panorama from the coast of Atlantic Ocean (the Bay of Biscay) in Brittany of France. While light pollution of nearby cities erased the stars in the central part of the image, the magnificent band of our home galaxy, the Milky Way stretched to the both sides. Also notable in the image is the light of bright planet Jupiter reflecting on the Atlantic waters. A dim reflection of the Milky Way central part (to the right of Jupiter is also visible).
