I finally had a contact with the spectacular galactic center of the milky way. Looking up and standing under those delicate stars with no one around for miles is truly a spiritual experience I’ve never had before. I believe that this challenge of capturing the beautiful night sky and milky way will keep me coming back for more. It’s very interesting that the lights coming from most stars had actually departed around 16,000 years ago meaning that at the time those star lights reached my camera sensor, they had traveled 16,000 years in space already. So, there’s a chance that one of those stars may no longer exists by the time I captured its light, but its light is printed on the digital photo permanently. Thanks to those little stars for giving us a such beautiful starry sky.
