A Straight Galactic Arm in Monte Bravo

| | | |

Our own galaxy as seen from Earth, occupies a considerable area across ​​the sky, with several tens of degrees. In this peacefull view from Monte Bravo, Alentejo, the Milky Way can be seen as a straight galactic arm in the direction of Zenith, due to the low perspective captured with an ultra wide angle lens. The orange tone coming from the village light of Mourão, is spreading through the low clouds, although, does not affect to much the imposing presence of our Milky Way, for being  captured in a Dark Sky Reserve, in Alqueva.
