Caption: Desert stargazing. 360-degree panorama of the night sky over a desert landscape, with the arc of the Milky Way (right) rising at moonset with an observer (far right) standing on a rock. The Magellanic Clouds are at left of his head. At centre left on the horizon is airglow (red), with the setting Moon at far left. Airglow is a phenomenon where a planetary atmosphere emits a faint glow, seen here as a reddish hue. Photographed in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile.
