Fire works in the Carina Arm – NYE 2013

All man made light shows ever devised pale into insignificance when compared to the silent and serene light from the millions of suns that make up the Sagittarius-Carina Arm of our Milky Way Galaxy.

Imaged at 10.30pm New Years Eve 2013 as the Milky Way rises over Mt Panorama, Bathurst NSW Australia.

The heroes of the display from the horizon – are Rigel Kentaurus and Hadar, the Southern Cross and above them all the fires of the Lambda Centauri Cluster, Southern Pleiades and the Eta Carina Nebula.
