Milky Way from 40,000 feet
been trying to capture this shot of the Milky Way
from an airplane for over a year.
This was my final night photo captured during
my flight home from Chile at 40,000ft.
My experience in Chile was breathtaking. The Atacama
Desert night skies were absolutely incredible
to what I've seen in the Northern Hemisphere.
New astronomical objects to
view really made that experience more enjoyable! I
know I'll be back to Chile, that country has a piece
of my soul now :)
The exposure was 5 seconds at ISO 51,200 and F2.8.
