The Milky Way seen from the Northern Hemisphere ; Panoramic view of the Milky Way stretching from Cepheus to Aquila. This portion is visible in the South in summer in Europe. Cygnus is at the zenith. This image is composed of 5 slow shutter photos taken the same night. Notice the light pollution along the horizon, despite the fact the photos were taken at 1600m altitude in Cantal, France.
