Sutherland by Night - SPOD • 23 Jul 2013

In this beautiful image by SAAO Astronomer Stephen Potter we see the Milky Way setting behind the 20, 30, 40 inch, MONET and SALT telescopes. Jupiter is the bright star at the top and Venus is setting into the MONET dome. The bright glow on the horizon is from distant city lights.
An amazing fish-eye image of the milky way arcing over Sutherland.
