Milky Way and stars over Tibet. Band of the Milky Way (upper left) in the night sky over mountains in Tibet, western China. The Milky Way is our galaxy seen from the inside, forming a band of stars and nebulae stretching across the sky. The central bulge of the galaxy is seen here, in the constellations of Sagittarius and Scorpius. Four bright yellow-red objects are at centre left and centre. From left to right, they are the planet Saturn, the yellow-red star Antares, the red planet Mars (near horizon) and the bright star Arcturus (upper centre). The bright blue stars include the asterism the Big Dipper (the Plough) at upper right. The Himalayan peaks at left include Shishapangma (8027 metres) and Gang Benchhen (7299 metres) near the border with Nepal. Photographed on 1 May 2014.
