THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOS

​The Milky Way Galaxy is our home. Approximately 120,000 light-years in diameter and containing 100–400 billion stars, it may also contain as many - if not more - planets. The Milky Way is most visible from Earth at certain times of the year. Right now we are in the height of Milky Way viewing season. But to see it, the stars have to align - literally. You have to go as far away as possible from big cities (light pollution washes it out); you need a night when there is no moon light (this also washes it out); you need clear skies; and a good place on the ground to shoot from.
