Description

This image, from this year's March, IMHO is special, and kind of magical. Through a hole in the clouds, a Starry and stunning Night Sky is visible. The camera was pointing towards Southeast, and the Rising Crux constellation can be seen through the clouds. The dark area is the Coalsack Dark Nebula, easily visible and spectacular to the naked eye.

This image was taken under a Bortle 3-4 Sky, NELM about 6.5, with the camera on the EQ3-2 Mount. Some light pollution is evident at the Horizon, but the site is pretty dark. In my opinion, the Night Sky is extremely (enlessly?) beautiful, and, even with clouds, it's stunningly beautiful. Beauty is in everything, but few have the eyes to see it. Taken from Cristina, MG, Brazil. Thanks for seeing.
