Caption: Milky Way rising over a coastline, montage sequence, starting at top and running to bottom, obtained under the light of a gibbous Moon. The arch of the Milky Way appears at bottom. Emerging from above the city lights (yellow glows) on the horizon, it extends to the left through the constellations of Aquila, Cygnus and Cassiopeia. At centre right is the planet Saturn in the constellation of Libra. At far right is the planet Mars in the constellation of Virgo. Photographed on 9 April 2014, near Douarnenez (lights on horizon), off the coast of Brittany, north-western France.
