Southern Cross Sky. In Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia, a wine country area, i saw a sky that was all lit up with stars. I can't remember ever seeing so many stars. I over exposed this image so you see even more stars that what i could see but the Milky Way was spectacular here. In this photo is the Southern Cross. Difficult to see in this photo but i had heard about it and expected it to be a lot larger constellation than it was. A beautiful night in Australia.
