“A still more glorious dawn awaits / not a sunrise, but a galaxy-rise / a morning filled with 400 billion suns / the rising of the milky way.”   

- Carl Sagan  

I woke up at 3 am, rode a bike alone into the pitch black Atacama Desert, and photographed the center of the Milky Way rise above me. It was something I’ve always wanted to do, and it was worth it.  

I have no words to describe the feelings I felt being underneath all those stars.

Last night’s super blood moon eclipse was quite a spectacular, breathtaking sight. I hope you got a chance to see it since the next one won’t be for another 18 years!
