Caption: Desert stargazing. 360-degree all-sky panorama (fulldome) of the night sky over a desert landscape, with an observer (lower centre) standing on a rock. The arc of the Milky Way is above him, with the Magellanic Clouds at left of his head. At top, on the horizon, is airglow (red), with the setting Moon at centre right. 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.
