New on 500px : Galatic Rising by markg by markg

Wellington, New Zealand is a great city for star gazing. You don’t have to travel too far out of the city to get dark skies as all the bright lights are contained within the surrounding hills.

This location is only 30 minutes from the center of town, and the stars are spectacular on a clear night. In this image you can see the galactic core of the Milky Way rising above the horizon towards the south. The colour to the left is a result of the distant city lights illuminating the clouds.
