Milky Way Central | Marco Verstraaten

Sometimes a picture says more than a thousand words. And in this case we even doubt if a hundred thousands would suffice.

Marco Verstraaten from pittoresque Twisk, the Netherlands, made this astonishing picture when he was travelling dark African Namibia.

We are staring down the very centre of our Milky Way galaxy and the amount of things we can see doing so is incomprehensible.

But instead of us rambling on for hours, we decided to let this picture do it’s own talking and just let you enjoy soaking up all it’s beauty.
